As a growing number of women accuse Harvey Weinstein of predatory behavior, actress Rose McGowan has used Twitter to rally support for the women like her who are now naming themselves as his victims.
She also took to Twitter to bash Ben Affleck, who released a statement denouncing Weinstein this week.
“You lie,” she said in one tweet, tagging the actor’s Twitter handle. McGowan accused Affleck of knowing about Weinstein’s behavior for years.
Overnight on Thursday, it appears that some of those tweets might have gotten McGowan temporarily suspended for the platform. The actress posted an image of a message she received from Twitter to her Instagram account:
The Washington Post found one recent, deleted tweet from McGowan’s timeline from Oct. 11.
“Anonymously sent to me. They all knew. It starts here,” the tweet read.
Attached was an image of a portion of an email that offered to set up a meeting with Bob, presumably Bob Weinstein from context, at a hotel in the early evening. The now-deleted image contained the full email signature of the person sending it, including their phone number, which could be a violation of Twitter’s rule against releasing “private information” without permission.
Later, in a tweeted statement, Twitter explained that “her account was temporarily locked because one of her Tweets included a private phone number, which violates our Terms of Service,” and that “We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future.”However, a few of McGowan’s tweets about Affleck appear somewhat similar to those that have triggered temporary limitations on Twitter accounts in the past. There’s one tweet that simply reads “Ben Affleck f‑‑‑off.”
