Rose McGowan accuses Harvey Weinstein of rape

Posted October 15, 2017

The idea is the brainchild of software engineer Kelly Ellis in defense of actress Rose McGowan and "all the victims of hate and harassment Twitter fails to support".

McGowan's account was suspended Wednesday amidst a tweetstorm against the "Gigli" actor, who she said was well aware of Weinstein's pervy predilections.

Her Twitter account was suspended for 12 hours yesterday for supposedly violating its community standards, which many interpreted as being linked to her fierce criticism of Ben Affleck and others.

Twitter is Developing a New Bookmarking Tool
Twitter is coming up with a "Save for Later" or Bookmarking feature to allow users to save tweets for reading later. The tool will finally let users store tweets without having to "like" the terrible stuff people write in them.

McGowan shared the news of her suspension on Instagram early Thursday morning, posting a screenshot of the message she had received from Twitter alerting her to the suspension and asking her to "delete Tweets that violate our rules".

"Be my voice", wrote McGowan.

Countless people took to Twitter to express their outrage over what some thought to be an attempt by the social media platform to silence women speaking out against alleged abuse, while allowing powerful men's spewing of hate and violence to go unchecked. Jessica Chastain and Anthony Bourdain were among those who questioned Twitter's action. She previous year said that she had been raped by a "studio head".

McGowan concluded her tweets by calling on Bezos, 53, to "stop funding rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers".

On Tuesday, Hollywood stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie also made accusations of sexual harassment against Weinstein, while Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette claimed in a piece for The New Yorker that after rejecting the movie mogul's unwanted advances, they were kept from being hired for projects.

"Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein", stated the producer's rep.
