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

Tyler Durden's picture

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...

First...Hollywood has been the home of debauchery since the 50's, but it's also bought us great joy through truly memorable and great films and we must never forget that. Not everybody in Hollywood is debauched. Clint Eastwood being one of many. Secondly it is common knowledge for actresses to have to sleep with producers, directors and executives to rise to the top.

On most occasions these actresses choose the fame, glamour and millions of dollars, in exchange for a Jewish studio bosses to fuck their vaginas, lick their pussies and put self respect a distant last. Weinstein was a sexual predator, but these women made his life too easy by going along in exchange for fame.

Whores and millions of dollars VS self- respect and a career as an estate agent/accountant/Walmart etc. The sad fact is many of these women chose whore through gritted teeth.

The same rules  of abuse apply in the world of modelling. Some women sleep their way to the top. Hopefully Weinstein serves a long sentence, but somehow I doubt it. Hollywood careers are already dead, because they have spoken out. There will be Kapernick style black-balling for many of these women who have spoken out. They won't even get voice-over work.

Sounds good to me.

I think I will sign "Affleck's Pledge":

I offer this laurel and hearty apology to any and all women I have groped or towards whom I otherwise acted like a pig, in 2003 or earlier.  Compensation is not available, but for $79 your name can be included on a commemorative plaque.

something tells me pedophilia is just beneath the surface of this scandal. Seeing the wheels come off "the glamour" of Hollywood is a sight to behold.

What are the odds that Bill and Harvey haven't flown together on the lolita express, or perhaps met at a certain island retreat to discuss political donations?

Watching Liberals knife each other in the back is damn good entertainment. Can't wait until the lid blows off and all of the pedos/perverts get exposed!

Why break the tradition of victimizing rape victims?! Its a long standing tradition in America. It's also why rape is frequently not reported. 

Way to go @twitterleftwing hypocrites!

I see that serial  rapist Harvey Weinstein still has his Twitter account, you fucking twits! Certainly wouldn't want to discriminate against serial rapists in the liberal tradition , now, would you?!

I think this calls for a commemorative wall somewhere in Hollywood or Burbank, where the name of every actress who has ever been groped by an industry A-lister can be inscribed.  In fact that would make a nice sound wall on the 101 Freeway from about Sunset Boulevard out to Coldwater Canyon.

Not just actRESS!

Actor Terry Crews is now proclaiming he was sexually assaulted....in public and in front of his wife....

Twitter just fucked up big time.  Now it has made an enemy of not only the Right wing, but now parts of the Left wing.  Nothing like a common enemy to bring people together.

It's only a matter of time before they do that to President Trump. First- CNN, NYTs, ESPN, NFL, and then Twitter. Time to dump their stock.

The schadenfreude will be too much to bear when things finally collapse. Twitter will look like a faded old Barbasol sign on an old highway  next to the new Interstate.

I'll just not be able to stop laughing at the terrible suffering of others....I feel guilty already.

I love how Harvey says it's not his fault. He has an "illness". Typical in Snowflake-i-stan

The best is the libtards bringing the president into this. They don't care about islamic terrorists using the service or blacks saying they want to kill whites on it but whoa, the president is the person you bitch about!

These morons are so fucking gone mentally that they can't talk about anything without bringing president pumpkin into it. Truly remarkable. 

It's also nice they aren't being critical of Affleck. I saw some dumb libtard show host twat saying he apologized so that somehow makes what he did alright. She too seemed to bring up pumpkin when she said that's better than what others have done.

Let the truth about the Hollyweird scum be known.  The sheeple who pay to go see most of their movies probably still turn on an NFL game --- they just don't get it.

Meh, Mcgowan is a trouble maker. She's always embroiled in some kind of political bullshit. Shaving off her hair for female "empowerment" and etc.. She should be muzzled until the facts surface anyway.

Twitter acting as referee, umpire, judge & jury... Twitter is finished. Done.  Once a tech platform 1) monitizes w/ ads, or 2) regulates/censors users, it's over... shark jumped.

 

These social platforms have a half-life... none of them reach their "potential" (market valuation). When critical mass (usership) reaches a certain level & the platform feels obliged to regulate/censor it's users - this is the first mistake. Then the platform starts posting ads & user behavior changes again...

 

MySpace-->Twitter-->Facebook--> ?

 

The least-regulated, least-pimped platforms are winning (Reddit, 4chan), while the most-funded platforms are committing suicide.  Anyone really think Facebook or Twitter will still be a 'thing' in 5 years?  By 2022, Facebook will be the joke & Twitter will be the punchline...

Twitter is shit, I used to follow artists posting art but even they turn political. The system blocks you depending on how you tweet.

Rebelrebel7's picture

Everyone is effected by politics. Get used to it. I doubt that the artists miss you and your fascist policies and standards. I guess that you just visit Zero Hedge for the artwork, the way that men just read playboy and penthouse for the articles. 

Here's an idea, if you're sick of people complaining about politics, try advocating for policies that would benefit the majority of Americans, rather than only the top 1% at everyone else's expense.

It doesn't matter if they miss me or not what matters to me is my position. Not theirs.

Wait isn't there a porn tape of this whore?

Folks I'm really confused on this.

are we supposed to point out and shame sexual predators now or not, and should we stay away from Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, and are they bum buddies?

I like how the SJWs add in Trump's tweets.

"Never let a crisis go to waste."

Hollywood is deception, disinformation, and distraction.

It is purely coincidental that many of the power people are Jews.
