Rose McGowan Says Harvey Weinstein Raped Her, Finally Throwing Away the NDA

Rose McGowan Says Harvey Weinstein Raped Her, Finally Throwing Away the NDA

In tweets addressed to Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos, the actress says she told Price that #Harvey Weinstein had raped her, but he told her there was no proof. #WomenBoycottTwitter. Not because of hate but because I love this platform and know it can be better. "You will love my dick", the studio head allegedly said to her. It's unclear what movie McGowan is referring to.

She said: "I actually have a signed document from the time of the attack. I think that's fair enough". McGowan's tweets come just after her account was suspended by Twitter Wednesday night.

"They blame the victim, they do all that shit".

In her tweets, McGowan alleged that Amazon Studios optioned a TV series from her and then killed it after she voiced concern to executives about Weinstein who was behind two of the programmes on the streaming platform, reported Variety.

And as for Harvey Weinstein, we can only hope he gets the ending that he deserves. Adopting the hashtag #WhyWomenDontReport, she said she did not go to the authorities with the alleged crime because she gained legal advice that she could never win the case. Not only have other high-profile accounts tweeted private numbers without suffering repercussions, Twitter has now broken its own rule of not speaking out about incidents with individual accounts. She was one of the first to condemn the producer after the alleged scandal exploded and has been encouraging her followers to support the women who have spoken out.

Critics blasted the social media site for suspending McGowan's account while allowing other users who post offensive and hateful messages to maintain their Twitter presence. Users of the site committed to not using it for one day, or more, in protest partly at the way it treated McGowan.

Weinstein has denied the accusations of rape against him and has pledged to seek therapy.

In 1997, according to the New York Times, an incident between McGowan and Weinstein in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival prompted the ex-mogul to pay her a $100,000 settlement.
