Twitter ‘Shuts Up’ Actress Rose McGowan Amidst Harvey Weinstein Scandal

The censors at Twitter, who have joined other social media outlets like Facebook in censoring news and thought they disagree with and defending “progressive orthodoxy”, have now stooped to censor the victims of alleged Hollywood sexual predator Harvey Weinstein. The latest victim of ‘Big Brother Twitter’s’ wrath is actress and Weinstein victim Rose McGowan. Late Wednesday night, Rose McGowan posted on Instagram that Twitter had temporarily suspended her account for violating Twitter rules.

Rose McGowan has been very vocal on Twitter this week after last Thursday’s New York Times exposé revealing Harvey Weinstein’s long history of sexual harassment and abuse of several women in Hollywood. The actress called out Batman actor Ben Affleck after he tweeted on Tuesday that he was “saddened and angry,” to hear the news about Weinstein, who was instrumental in launching his and Matt Damon’s careers by releasing “Good Will Hunting” on Miramax Films in 1997.

McGowan also alleged that Affleck had known for years about Weinstein’s abuses. McGowan was one of several victims of Weinstein’s unwanted advances. In 1997, Weinstein reached a $100,000 settlement with McGowan following an incident in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival. Rose McGowan and Ben Affleck are familiar with one another in that they shared screen time in the films “Going All the Way” (1997) and “Phantoms” (1998).

It has also been revealed that, in addition to being an alleged liar, Ben Affleck is also alleged sexual assaulter. Yesterday, video resurfaced showing that Affleck had groped actress Hilarie Burton on “TRL” in 2003. Affleck tweeted an apology immediately after.

“I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize,” Affleck wrote on Twitter.

Wednesday night, makeup artist Annamarie Tendler also accused Affleck of grabbing her ass at a Golden Globes party in 2014.

There has been no further comments from Ben Affleck. As we understand it, under the Twitter suspension, Rose McGowan will be limited to sending direct messages, and prohibited from tweeting, retweeting or “liking” posts for 12 hours. Don’t expect this controversy to go away anytime soon.
