Harvey Weinstein 'Raped Me' Rose McGowan Claims Amazon Ignored Her Pleas

"Now who do we know that's ever done that on Twitter", she quipped. "I said, I was the proof".

Affleck expressed anger and sadness about Weinstein, the studio head who gave him a start in Good Will Hunting.

"Any allegations of nonconsensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein", a spokeswoman for Weinstein told CNN. She added, "He said it hadn't been proven".

McGowan is one of the most prominent women to accuse the disgraced movie mogul of sexual misconduct, and although she was named in the recent New York Times investigation as an accuser, her tweets Thursday were the first time she publicly alleged that Weinstein raped her.

McGowan's appeal to Amazon comes on the heels of the partnership between Amazon Studios and The Weinstein Co.

The limit meant she couldn't tweet, retweet or like posts, and could only send direct messages, but Twitter said her account has now been unlocked and the relevant tweet was deleted. She further claimed Amazon had "won a dirty Oscar" while "funding rapists". Hackett said she was never made aware of the outcome but also said she never saw Price at any more events.

Despite Twitter restoring her account, McGowan compared her situation with that of U.S. president Donald Trump who apparently can threaten the entire planet with nuclear war without being blocked.

Earlier in the day, Twitter locked McGowan's account, claiming she violated its terms of service by posting a private phone number. "We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future", the company tweeted in a statement.

At the time the truncated social platform insisted that "Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power".

Shortly afterwards, Rose shared that her Twitter account had been suspended.

The company's official account also tweeted: "We stand with the courageous women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices".
