Rose McGowan on Twitter: 'HW Raped Me'

Rose McGowan on Twitter: 'HW Raped Me'

In protest, the hashtag #WomenBoycottTwitter was launched to encourage women and supportive men to stay off of Twitter on Friday. Early Thursday morning, however, Twitter partially suspended her account, infuriating McGowan and other supporters of victims of sexual violence.

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

The boycott is meant to last 24 hours, and while a large number of women have declined to participate, it certainly appears as though the platform will be a little quieter today.

Once in Syria, she married ISIS member Junaid Hussain, with whom she was having an online relationship. She gradually became a key recruiter for ISIS and soon topped the USA kill-list.

Within hours, McGowan's Twitter account had been frozen.

Minutes after model Chrissy Teigen tweeted her support for the boycott she shared examples of the abuse she had received online in response, some of it sexually explicit. She made a series of Twitter posts Thursday directed at Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos, saying, "I told the head of your studio that HW raped me".

McGowan's account was suspended Wednesday amidst a tweetstorm against the "Gigli" actor, who she said was well aware of Weinstein's pervy predilections. Quite a few Twitter users noticed the company seems to have an exceptionally arbitrary and unclear policy on suspending accounts.

Since the allegations against Weinstein came to light, McGowan has called out many other Hollywood insiders, including Ben Affleck. "Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power". She a year ago said that she had been raped by a "studio head".

It isn't just women who are joining the boycott.

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. #WomenBoycottTwitter. Not because of hate but because I love this platform and know it can be better.
