Rose Mc Gowan twitter suspended

McGowan was identified in a New York Times article last week as receiving a financial settlement from Weinstein over an encounter with the producer at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997. Early Thursday morning, however, Twitter partially suspended her account, infuriating McGowan and other supporters of victims of sexual violence.

McGowan, who starred in the 1996 Miramax film Scream, declined to comment to the Times about the alleged settlement. Over & over I said. He said it hadn't been proved.

McGowan's ban raised the ire of several users who pointed out that Twitter allowed tweets from white supremacists and even highly controversial tweets from the U.S. president to remain on its service.

More than two dozen women - majority actresses and some of them household names - have accused Harvey Weinstein of inappropriate sexual contact ranging from creepy touching to rape.

Affleck was sued for sexual misconduct in 2010 by two female colleagues who worked with him on mockumentary I'm Still Here.

"I had already sold a script I wrote to your studio, it was in development", McGowan's tweets on Thursday continued. According to a tweet, Twitter suspended the account because she posted a "private phone number".

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr on Trump: "He continually offends people, and so people don't want to stay at his hotel". Now, 16 of those teams have confirmed they stopped doing business with Trump.

Rose McGowan said late Wednesday that Twitter had suspended her from tweeting.

She also sent out a tweet targeting The Weinstein Company that read, "TWC You don't get to change your company name & be done with it".

The former Charmed star is one of the many women who have come forward and accused Hollywood producer Harvery Weinstein of sexual harassment.

McGowan joins Ashley Judd, Rosanna Arquette, Mira Sorvino, Asia Argento and a number of other women who all say they were at some point sexually harassed by Weinstein over the last 30 years. "We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future", a Twitter spokesperson told The Register. The actress has since been allowed back into her account. "We stand with the courageous women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices", Twitter tweeted.

She tweeted: "Join me in supporting this important cause at iPetitions".
