Twitter restores account of actress Rose McGowan

Twitter restores account of actress Rose McGowan

She has continued to use Twitter to comment on developments in the controversy and attack those in Hollywood who have remained silent about the Weinstein fall out.

Although it's not clear exactly who McGowan was talking to besides Bezos, at a 2016 Independent Filmmaker Project event in Brooklyn, the actress said she had sold a script to Amazon.

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. He said it hadn't been proven. In an on-the-record, on-camera interview, McGowan repeatedly said Weinstein raped her, the sources said.

The message from Twitter did not explain why her account was frozen, although informed her she had broken the network's rules, and that she needed to delete the offending tweets to restore her account.

"I was ignored", McGowan tweeted. She further claimed Amazon had "won a dirty Oscar" while "funding rapists". I said I was the proof...

In August, Amazon Studios boss Roy Price was investigated for allegedly making inappropriate sexual remarks to Isa Hackett, a producer on its series "The Man in the High Castle". In the wake of the scandal, Weinstein - who has denied numerous allegations - has been sacked from The Weinstein Company and his wife of ten years, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, has left him. Amazon did not respond to multiple requests for comment from CNNMoney.

"Any allegations of non-consensual contact are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein", Weinstein representative Sallie Hofmeister said Wednesday. She wrote on Instagram: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME". Months later, while Farrow was still doing more reporting, McGowan reached out and asked him to remove her accusation from his story, the sources.

Weinstein, a longtime movie producer, has been facing a barrage of allegations from women in Hollywood who say Weinstein either sexually harassed, assaulted or raped them.

While Twitter has not revealed exactly why McGowan's account was suspended, it followed her speaking out about sexual abuse, and telling Ben Affleck to "fuck off" after he said he knew nothing of Weinstein's reputation for sexual harassment.
