Rose McGowan Accuses Amazon, Jeff Bezos Of Weinstein Rape Coverup

Less than a week after it first hit, the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal fallout has spread across multiple Hollywood circles, and moments ago it appears to have dragged in none other than Amazon CEO, and the world's 2nd richest man, Jeff Bezos.

In a series of tweets on Thursday afternoon, Rose McGowan, one of the at least 20 women who have accused Weinstein of sexual assault, and who was locked out of twitter overnight after attacking Ben Affleck, accused the Batman star of lying about his knowledge of Weinstein’s alleged sexual assaults of women, dragged Jeff Bezos into the Weinstein scandal.

McGowan claims that Amazon optioned a television series from her only to kill it soon after when she voiced concern about a possible move the company was making to bailout Weinstein. McGowan also accused Amazon of winning “a dirty Oscar” by working with accused rapist Harvey Weinstein, despite being warned of accusations against him.

'I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof,' said McGowan on Thursday in a tweet directed at company founder Jeff Bezos.

'I had already sold a script I wrote to your studio, it was in development. When I heard a Weinstein bailout was in the works.'

Amazon executives, McGowan also claimed, did nothing when McGowan warned them about Weinstein. McGowan is one of several women to have settled with Weinstein. “I forcefully begged studio head to do the right thing. I was ignored,” she wrote. “Deal was done. Amazon won a dirty Oscar.”

Her full tweets:

  • I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof.
  • I had already sold a script I wrote to your studio, it was in development. When I heard a Weinstein bailout was in the works
  • I forcefully begged studio head to do the right thing. I was ignored. Deal was done. Amazon won a dirty Oscar.
  • I called my attorney & said I want to get my script back, but before I could, #2 @amazonstudios called to say my show was dead
  • I am calling on you to stop funding rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers. I love @amazon but there is rot in Hollywood
  • Be the change you want to see in the world. Stand with truth. #ROSEARMY #Amazon

Here are her tweets (and a snapshot) just in case @Jack decides to suspend her account again.

According to the Mail, That 'dirty Oscar' seems to be a reference to Casey Affleck's Best Actor win for 'Manchester by the Sea' earlier this year, an award that Ben's younger brother took home despite two women accusing him of sexual harassment. McGowan did not identify Casey by name, but the only other Oscars that Amazon has won are the Best Original Screenplay award for Kenneth Lonergan and Best Foreign Language Film for the Iranian drama 'The Salesman.'

Amazon picked up 'Manchester by the Sea' at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival for a near-record $10 million, and the film ultimately ended up netting the movie industry upstart seven Oscar nominations and two wins.

It is unclear what role Weinstein played in the funding or sale of Manchester, but he has worked frequently with the film's two leads Casey and Michelle Williams as well as the executive producer of the picture Matt Damon.

Amazon said that the studio was 'reviewing our options for the projects we have with The Weinstein Company' earlier this week. McGowan also did not name the executive she was referencing in her Twitter thread.

While the deal between herself and Amazon was never confirmed, but in June 2016 Amazon Studios head Roy Price did post a photo of himself with McGowan. 'You come talking that trash we'll pull your card. Tough face contest lost to @rosemcgowan #eazye #rosearmy,' wrote Price.

He is now finding himself at the mercy of the #rosearmy himself after the actress' tweets. 'I called my attorney & said I want to get my script back, but before I could, #2 @amazonstudios called to say my show was dead,' claimed McGowan.

Separately, earlier on Thursday, twitter provided an explanation for why it had suspended McGowan's twitter account:

We have been in touch with Ms. McGowan's team. We want to explain that her account was temporarily locked because one of her Tweets included a private phone number, which violates our Terms of Service.  The Tweet was removed and her account has been unlocked. We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future.  Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power. We stand with the brave women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices.

We now await Bezos' response.

The suicide of actor Corey Haim needs to be re-opened.Corey was sexually abused by the Hollywierdos when he was a pre-teen which traumatized him far beyond his ability to cope.It tormented him all his life and ultimately destroyed him at about age 30. Anyone remotely connected to Haim should be tracked down and questioned by the police.At this point there is safety in numbers so many others will give statements.There are not many people who want to carry information regarding the abuse of a child and consequent painful life, and the premature death as a result of the widespread depravity of the entertainment industry.It is a form of entertainment in itself to see all these repugnant H'wierd vipers spitting venom and striking at each other. Corey Haim was best friends with another young actor -- Corey Feldman -- and they became known as "the two Coreys."Both boys were sexually abused by Hollywierdos.https://pagesix.com/2016/05/26/corey-feldman-and-corey-haim-were-being-… death affected Feldman deeply and he has always valiantly kept Haim's name alive in his constant search for justice.For all the Hollywierd blubbering about this or that cause they ignored the vile and widespread abuse of the young and vulnerable actors in their midst.All that cesspool is good for is cultural decay and death in one form or another.That whole dump should be flooded for rats.

Yep, this is beginning to spiral out of control for Hollyweird and their media conglomerates. At the top are nothing but sociopaths, so watch out when they start turning on each other. The playbook is out there for all to see. Intimidation and coercion to keep the darkest secrets hid. If this keeps going higher and higher up the food chain, someone will eventually go nuclear ala mutual assured destruction.

I bunch of self absorbed simpletons with zero emotional discipline, addicted to booze & pills, who play fake characters for a living. All who own the latest iPhone & have a legion of TWITTER followers. What could possibly go wrong? Footnote: Hopefully though, some people will come forward and take a stand. (and do it in an honest way that wasn't an obvious 'damage control' job)

Ringo Starr has come out & said publicly in an interview that the 'rumors' that Paul McCartney died were actually true. He died in a car crash on November 9, 1966 and that the Paul McCartney that most everyone knows today is actually a guy that won a Paul McCartney look alike contest and that his name was William Shears (yes, THAT Billy Shears, from the next album that the Beatles produced which was SGT PEPPERS). No way to prove this, but there is record that the REAL Paul McCartney fathered a child with a German woman in Hamburg back around 1962 and that later the woman sued for child support which forced William Shears (now Paul McCartney) to give a DNA sample to prove HE wasn't the father (which he wasn't). Apparently, John Lennon and William Shears never got along, hence your comment.

So Paul's appearance and more importantly his talent were so run of the mill that it was easy to find someone who looked just like him and who could also write and play music at the same level? Crazy talk.If things are that easy why didn't the Doors find an identical Morrison, The Experience a look alike Hendrix who was also the greatest guitarist ever, etc.  He died in a car crash on November 9, 1966 and that the Paul McCartney that most everyone knows today is actually a guy that won a Paul McCartney look alike contest and that his name was William Shears....Apparently, John Lennon and William Shears never got along, hence your comment. In the following clip John complains about a violinist who played Yesterday in his honor. Yesterday was released in August 1965 and therefore would have been written by the "real" Paul.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1KZGPYjleE

Apparently, Mr. Shears also happened to be a talented musician as well. It's not that far a stretch when you actually consider how simple the Beatles music was prior to 1966. FFS ~ after my 1st year in college, me and my friends put this little band together and did Beach Boys music at bars at the ocean during the summer. Except for the lead guitar player, most of us had no talent at all but learned how to play a few chords and simple percussion. Anyway ~ Ringo is admitting this himself. The gist of the coverup was that the Beatles were so immensly popular at the time, they were scared to let the public the truth. It was supposed to only go along for a bit, but it carried on when, apparently, the public was fooled by the doppleganger. There were dozens of 'hints' in artwork & music (Abbey Road cover, Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club band, song, White Album). There are even anecdotes (like Paul's 'left handedness').

I've been aware of the Paul is Dead rumor since the mid 70s and I know the details. John doesn't say. "I buried Paul" at the end of Strawberry Fields Forever. He says, "cranberry sauce." Paul would not have been "28 IF" he was still alive as the Abbey Road album cover supposedly revealed.  He would have been 27. It's not that far a stretch when you actually consider how simple the Beatles music was prior to 1966It is an incredibly far stretch when you consider the fact that everyone who knew him would have to be in on it. Do you think his father didn't notice? Here's a picture of Paul's' Dad with his supposedly fake son in the 1970s.http://www.maccafan.net/Albums/WingsAtTheSpeedOfSound/Family.jpgAnd why didn't any of the Beatle knock-off bands like the Monkees look and sound exactly like the Beatles themselves if Beatles duplicates are easy to find and their music is so simple anyone could write it?  FFS ~ after my 1st year in college, me and my friends put this little band together and did Beach Boys music at bars at the ocean during the summer. Except for the lead guitar player, most of us had no talent at all but learned how to play a few chords and simple percussion.FFS - I'd love to see the gold records you earned based on the fact that you are as talented as the Beach Boys. Or is it possible that you don't have any gold records because your belief that you obtained such talent with little to no effort simply isn't true? Anyway ~ Ringo is admitting this himself.  

The websites, such as WorldNewsDailyReport.com, reported that Ringo gave the interview to the Hollywood Inquirer, and claimed he said:"When Paul died, we all panicked! WorldNewsDailyReport is a satirical news website and is for entertainment purposes only. http://www.mirror.co.uk/usvsth3m/ringo-starr-just-admit-real-5260576
