Actress Rose McGowan, one of the many women who survived Harvey Weinstein and who settled outside court with the producer a while back, has been rallying Hollywood celebrities on Twitter. In particular, she called out Matt Damon for his role in suppressing the Sharon Waxman report and has called for the complete dissolution of the Miramax/Weinstein board.
McGowan, who has been most vocal about Weinstein’s crimes, and who has been asking every Hollywood star to take responsibility, tweeted when Ben Affleck issued a statement on Weinstein:
@benaffleck “GODDAMNIT! I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT” you said that to my face. The press conf I was made to go to after assault. You lie.

Amid all this, McGowan’s Twitter account got temporarily suspended which caused an outrage on social media with #WomenBoycottTwitter trending. According to The Guardian, Twitter said that one of her tweets had a private phone number which was in violation of its policies and that’s why her account was temporarily suspended.
