Actress Rose McGowan, who was one of the first to speak out about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assaults, has been temporarily blocked by Twitter after she took to the social platform to rant on those who have been quiet on the issue.
This morning, McGowan shared a screen-shot on Instagram she received from Twitter Inc. claiming that they’ve “temporarily limited some of” her Twitter account features, including the ability to tweet.
According to the Twitter rules, harassment and hateful conduct are grounds for being suspended.
It emerged last week that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein raped three women and sexually assaulted and harassed numerous others, using his influence in the industry to threaten and silence his victims.
The Times reported that McGowan herself reached a settlement with Weinstein over undisclosed claims in 1997.
Following reports of the numerous sexual assaults, McGowan emerged as one of the most vocal denouncers of Weinstein. She took to her Twitter page to call out numerous Hollywood figures that allegedly knew of his crimes and said nothing.
She tweeted at Matt Damon asking, “what’s it like to be a spineless profiteer who stays silent?” and she told her fellow celeb Ben Affleck “Fuck off.” McGowan also called for the board of the Weinstein Company to be dissolved following the allegations.
Harvey Weinstein who has been accused by 28 women of sexual harassment and assault, was recently checked into a rehab center in Arizona, where he will deal with his sex addiction and other behavioral issues.
