“TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE,” McGowan wrote in a message posted to Instagram. She included a screenshot of a message from Twitter saying she violated “Twitter rules” and will need to “delete tweets that violate our rules” in order to restore full functionality.
Update: According to Twitter, McGowan’s account was suspended because she tweeted a private phone number. Her access has since been restored.
McGowan, who reportedly reached a settlement with Weinstein in 1997 following an incident in a hotel room during Sundance Film Festival, had accused Affleck of lying about his knowledge of Weinstein’s behavior. “‘GODDAMNIT! I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT’ you said that to my face,” McGowan recounted Affleck saying, to which she added, “The press conf I was made to go to after assault. You lie.”
Yesterday, Affleck publicly apologized to Hilarie Burton, an actress and former MTV correspondent who accused him of sexual misconduct during a 2003 appearance on TRL.
