Transcript: Women to Boycott Twitter Over Weinstein Accuser Rose McGowan's Suspended Account

Women across the globe are boycotting Twitter after actress Rose McGowan’s account was suspended as she tweeted her criticisms of Harvey Weinstein.

On her Instagram page she wrote, "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME.

THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK.

BE MY VOICE #RoseArmy.” Twitter says McGowan’s account was suspended because one of her tweets contained the phone number of a prominent person.

But those in Hollywood and users alike are criticizing Twitter’s handling of the situation.

Actresses Jessica Chastain and Jamie Lee Curtis voicing their disgust, with Alyssa Milano and Chrissy Teigen announcing they’ll be boycotting the service.

The model tweeting, "Ladies.

Let's do this. #WomenBoycottTwitter.

Not because of hate but because I love this platform and know it can be better." John Cusack also tweeting his support of the day-long movement, along with Mark Ruffalo, and Anna Paquin.

On Friday, October 13th #WomenBoycottTwitter was a top trending topic.

Back in 1997 McGowan reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein after an “incident” at a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival.

Upon her Twitter account’s reinstatement, McGowan tweeted at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos that she’d repeatedly told the head of the movie studio, Roy Price, that “HW raped me.” Price has since been suspended.
