Just when we thought there could be no more twists in the implosion of Hollywood mega-producer Harvey Weinstein, Twitter went ahead and suspended one of the most vocal critics of the alleged serial sexual abuser. Rose McGowan took to Instagram last night to post a screenshot showing that her Twitter account is suspended.
Over the past week, McGowan has taken to the platform to call out Weinstein and other actors who've alleged to not know about the producer's behavior, like Ben Affleck. On Tuesday, Affleck had tweeted that the allegations "made him sick," which prompted McGowan to call him a liar and tweet "Ben Affleck fuck off."
The actress has become a champion of the women who are coming forward with allegations against Weinstein and, in years past, has been vocal in her criticism of him. In 1997, McGowan reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein after an incident in a hotel room at Sundance Film Festival.
It's unclear what tweet prompted Twitter to lock her account, but the message is clear and the backlash was swift. Users quickly came to her defense and noted that white supremacists like Donald Trump are allowed on Twitter. While we wait for her return to Twitter, here's a collection of celebrities who've come to her defense.
