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...

Repost:

To be balanced Hollypedophiliawood is also rife with whores of both genders who'll do anything to "make it big" in Hollypedophiliawood. Now the news is filled with harrowing tales from those very same exploited whores who made it big.

HYPOCRISY.

Do these audition photographs of so-called "actresses" look like they are being coerced? At least 35 pages of photographs of so-called "actresses." Enjoy.

But why should people have to prostitute themselves for a chance at success? That just translates in OUR daily lives. We do the very same thing but on a less grand scale, compromising some of our principles for money.

There's a reason the term "abuse of power" was created.

Harvey Weinstein is on his way to asylum in Apartheid Israel, our good ally that wouldn't exist without the military and financial might of the United States, where he'll be safe from extradition.

Twitter needs to be regulated like a public utility. Their behavior is like the phone company listening in on your calls and cutting your service if they don’t like what you are saying or hearing.

Hollywood creates TRASH, it's Cultural, and Moral Decadence, now they have Human Scrafice as the NEW thing in their movies. Christianize Hollywood, Call it CHRISTWOODS, and only Christians are allowed to make MOVIES. No Athiest Commie Jews allowed. SEND Chrisopther Colombus to HOLLYWOOD to STOP all the Human Scrafrice and Athiest Communist Decedance.

Hollywood produced Ronald Reagan and John Wayne. So it works three ways : the good, the bad and the ugly-beautiful.

And Hollywood moguls were not Commies; they loved capitalism up to the hilt of their boners !

Some welched before Mccarthy; some belched before Mrs Robinson;, some screwed in the Cuckoo's nest or in five easy pieces; some thought you could shoot your way out of bed like Clint Eastwood. Some even wrestled with a leopard or jumped off the EMpire State.

Its all fake news; Holywood is not truth its a world of lies, beautifully horrible lies that are called culture and entertainment to make you forget mundane reality or to make you dream of Venus naked in your arms.

Don't shoot the messenger; don't confuse fiction with fact; don't catch the shadow catch the predator.

Politics creates trash when corruption dominates fact, as its all about power and money--- and culture creates the rash that is the zeitgeist --or way of life-- of the power predators.

Its the cherry on the cake, its not the cake!

Sour cherries when power implodes or the vacuum appears; reality hates a VACUUM, that is a fact of life.

Whenever some shitty Snowflaker whines about Trump vs. Weinstein I tweet back about Bill Clinton vs. Trump. 

Has Trump had any of his victims audited by the IRS. All of Bill's accusers were.

Poor Harvey is wasting his money on sex addiction rehab. All he needs to do is switch political parties and sign a loyalty oath to Donald Rapist Trump. A couple anti Muslim propaganda films and Harvey will be right back behind his desk grabbing pussy and jacking off in front of Hollywood starlets. Cock this motherfuckers.

Bitch needs to take the knee. That will confuse the libtards and cause their heads to explode "mars attack" style.

That's funny about Affleck yet not really surprising. These libtards are so damn dumb to always shoot off their mouth in their virtuous way only to be caught later doing the same shit they go on about. 

That's also a great PR move by twatter to do that to Rose given Benny boy clearly indicating he molested someone. That company is run by such idiots.

"That's funny about Affleck yet not really surprising."

Shouldn't be. Affleck is besties with Matt Damon who, if you recall from an article yesterday, called the NYT to suppress a story about Weinstein over 10 years ago.

You see, they think one thing (it's okay to use and abuse women) and say another (we respect women).

Sounds logical.

Punish and silence the accuser.

Government works the same way. Embarrass and humiliate into submission.

It's too easy to spout apologies after being called out and busted.  Affleck isn't sorry at all.  Just puting on an act of pennance to save face and preserve his orchestrated public image.  ALL apologies after the fact need to be rejected.  Ben, if you're truly sorry and believe predatory opportunism is wrong, it's time to start calling out names.  You know hundreds in Hollywood engaging in the worst behavior.  Your silence will bear witness to your lack of true conviction.  Listening...

Yeah, that will happen.

Look how many people "died" in Hollywood last year, leading up to the election. Satanic sacrifices maybe?

Ben does what Ben is told to do. Just like everyone in Washington.

Once Damon and Russell Crowe were outted by the reporter from the NYT for trying to suppress this, gonna be A LOT of other big--male--names revealed that kept this quiet.

"ALL apologies after the fact need to be rejected. "

 

Wait....we're supposed to apologize BEFORE we do something wrong?

 

You're saying no one can ever be sorry. So what we need to do is to remove the word apologize from the English language, because it will  never be used again.

 

You didn't think this through cheesedip.
