Rose McGowan Says Harvey Weinstein Raped Her

Rose McGowan returned to Twitter after a 12-hour temporary suspension of her account with claims that Harvey Weinstein raped her, clarifying previous statements that she had been sexually assaulted by an unnamed studio head.

McGowan, who had previously been suspended because, according to Twitter, “one of her Tweets included a private phone number,” which violates the platform’s Terms of Service, said in a series of five tweets directed to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos that Weinstein “raped” her. “Over & over I said it,” she wrote. “He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof.”

McGowan urged the head of Amazon Studios, who had optioned a show she had written, to “do the right thing” regarding Weinstein, but after trying to to get her script back from Amazon, the studio pulled the plug on her show, she said.

A recent New York Times investigative report revealed that Weinstein allegedly reached confidential settlements with at least eight women over sexual misconduct allegations. McGowan reportedly received a $100,000 settlement from Weinstein over a 1997 incident.

Weinstein’s representative Sallie Hoffmeister said that Weinstein denies the allegation, saying that “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.” Weinstein previously released a statement that vigorously denied any allegations of sexual assault and claims that he “believes that all of these relationships were consensual.”
