Twitter Suspends Account Of Weinstein Accuser Rose McGowan Prompting Calls For Boycott

Update (11:30 am ET): The public has predictably exploded with outrage following Twitter's bizarre decision to freeze the account of actress Rose McGowan after she accused Ben Affleck of lying after he expressed remorse for groping a young actress live on MTV in 2003, and now a growing number of users are trying to organize a women's boycott of the social media service in response. Several Twitter users have pointed out the company's policies don't seem to be fairly enforced across all users. Others have called on the service to retore McGowan's account






* * *

In a move tha may to trigger an outpouring of rage from the company's Silicon Valley milieu, Twitter has frozen some features of Rose McGowan's account after she tweeted "You Lie" at Ben Affleck following the latter's apology for groping actress Hilarie Burton during an appearance on "TRL" in 2003.

The actress, who is at the center of the storm of sexual misconduct allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein, took to her Instagram and Facebook accounts to relay the news of her suspension, writing cryptically that: “TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE. #ROSEARMY.”

She added a screenshot from a message from Twitter telling her that she had violated their terms of service and she would be locked out for 12 hours.

Since the bombshell sexual harassment, assault and rape allegations about Weinstein were reported by the New York Times and The New Yorker, McGowan has excoriated Weinstein and others, like Affleck, whom she believes knew about Weinstein's disgraceful behavior but did nothing to stop it or hold Weinstein accountable. The NYT reported in its original expose that McGowan reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein after an encounter in a hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997.

Previously, Twitter has mostly reserved suspensions and bans like this for conservative journalists and commentators. But the company's motive in its decision to crack down on a famous actress speaking out about sexual abuse is not known. Representatives for the company have not yet commentated on McGowan's suspension.

Meanwhile, the FBI is reportedly investigating Weinstein - who recently landed in Europe for rehab - amid fears that he may be planning a Roman Polanski-style evasion of charges by fleeing to Europe. 

Separately, evidence of Affleck's hypocrisy has proliferated online...

Actually ~ You're correct about that.


But what I neglected to make reference to referring to was the subtle usage of the character name of CHIEF BRODY


Dreyfus (playing 'Hooper'), well that's pretty easy. Even in Muppetville.

I've always wondered that myself, it seems that he got in good with Harvey and as long as he protects and backup Harvey the man will push him for movies via his studio and others.

Apparently he was only good in Mallrats because he played himself.

He did co-write the screenplay for Good Will Hunting, which was excellent. Matt Damon was the other writer.

Allegedly.  Also rumored that they had some help.   William Goldman, allegedly.

Yeah ~ & Damon was recently called out for being asked to influence Fabrizio Lombardo (MIRAMAX Italia), for helping to procure whores for Weinstein during the filming of 'The Talented Mr. Ripley', which, oh by the way, had Paltrow as a costar along with Jude Law.


Disney~ Weinstein Company~ all these other clowns?


How many marbles does anyone need in their head to figure it all out?

Have to stick to together, the controllers. But I believe the Weinstein story is anyway a controlled demolition by the parasitic elites. They had to give us a bad guy. But Podesta and the organized child abuse in DC is untouched.

One group (white supremacy) have finally gotten the power to take on this group of people and they are pulling the plug on them.  Ask  yourself why is it that this group of people have been thrown out of over 100 countries across the planet?  They can't get along with others and look at anyone that isn't them as below them and so they prey on them.  And what this group did if you have noticed over the course of decades and increased this decade is they have learned that in order to do their dirt they have to have someone to take the fall or be the bad guy in order for them to do their dirt.  The bad guy is black men and women, in the news everyday they Goebbles black men and women on everything and make it seem they are the problem for everything going wrong.

When in reality they are the ones that have done so much damage in race baiting in the news, stirring trouble and divide and conqure.

Exactly spot on point….. But things tend to not always go as planned this might get really interesting.

Buck Johnson's picture

I totally agree with you, I never thought this would work. I always figured that them doing this would blow back in their face big time. And eventually if not know it will.

Affleck - being himself - 5 minutes of Ben groping and fondling

Buck Johnson's picture

Exactly, someone at twitter is protecting a fellow tribesman but why isn't anyone in the other media protecting him also since most of them and the owners are in that also?  Maybe there is infighting going on but it doesn't matter, twitter is going to get destroyed over this you can bet your last dollar on that.

Twitter destroyed over this. LOL.

Most twitter users will never even learn of this. The people who actually care never used twitter in the first place.

If anyone can destroy Twitter it is the president.

Wait. She took the money and now she's bitching? 100K for a lay? He paid way too much.

Oh, she's being compensated nicely.  Would YOU fuck Marilyn Manson for free?

"She took the money and now she's bitching? 100K for a lay? He paid way too much."

The conversation probably was more along the lines of you take my 'offer' and you'll one day have work in Hollywood. You don't take my 'offer' and the closest Starbucks is around the corner.

How many women did Harvey grope and otherwise assault that no one will ever hear their names?

That said, I'm waiting to hear the word misogynist out of HIllary's mouth.

This guy is an asshole but I sense you are buying into the gynocentric bull shit that all men are rapists

"This guy is an asshole but I sense you are buying into the gynocentric bull shit that all men are rapists."

No, not at all. Really, it's little wonder neither men nor women no longer treat each other with respect. The 60s era of free love and liberation for women have yielded us the Kartrashians and other ilk like them.

Truth and honesty are passe. The latest and greatest is what catches everyone's eye. Check out Weinstein's wife who is now leaving him. A marriage built on lies.

The Bolsheviks were most cruel and vicious to their own. The Revolutsia eats its own. Watching the Bolshevik liberal retards savaging themselves is the best entertainment ever!

Paddock to Country Western true believers .... you want your guns .... you can keep your guns .... here they are .... just because he had many guns .... doesn't mean he wasn't a socialist who wanted only the state to have guns ?

how_this_stuff_works's picture

I can see that, but the reality is that what Weinstein did to these women and the massive Hollywood/media coverup is what large corps and various associations and, yes, law enforcement (think FBI) is doing to us on a daily basis.

That realization makes it less entertaining.

To watch the left completely melt down was the only reason I voted for Trump... and it has been paying back in spades.

Rush opined that Weinstein shakedown .... wuz becuz .... he still had feelings for Israel ?

HopefulCynical's picture

Rush often has good insights, but that wasn't one of them. He got that from some Jewish commentator he saw on TV, on't remember the name of the guy or the show.

The American Jews hating on Israel is probably just a diversion, and at most is just a power struggle between two factions. They're united in their contempt for us goyim; of that you can be sure. "The enemy of my enemy..."
