Actress Rose McGowan’s Twitter account was suspended Wednesday after she continued to lash out at former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and others in the entertainment industry.
The actress took to her Instagram account early Thursday morning to announce:
It appears that McGowan’s account got suspended because she included a phone number in one of her posts. In a statement regarding the situation, Twitter’s spokesman said:
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 of 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.
McGowan didn’t just unleash her thoughts on Weinstein, but also on several Hollywood figures who have since come out to denounce the former movie producer. Many of them, she said, were well aware of his predatory nature, and she called them out by name.
Twitter’s response, in light of its decision to allow President Donald Trump to effectively tweet anything due to “newsworthiness,” had the Left seething and demanding more social media censorship—just not for liberals.
