Rose McGowan has been one of the most vocal victims in the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct case – and has now alleged that the producer raped her.
She went on to explain that she told Amazon Studios about the assault, but they chose to ignore her, and instead, dropped the show that she was making with them.
She first mentioned the sexual assault last year, when she pointed the finger at an unnamed Hollywood studio head.
A New York Times investigation found out that Harvey Weinstein actually reached a settlement with Rose McGowan when she was 23 years old after “an episode in a hotel room” during a film festival.
“I told the head of your studio that HW raped me”
Although she was named by The New York Times as a victim earlier this week, she never directly accused the producer of rape until yesterday, in a series of Tweets directed at Amazon’s CEO.
“I told the head of your studio that HW raped me,” she wrote in a Tweet to Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos.
“Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof.
“I forcefully begged studio head to do the right thing. I was ignored. Deal was done. Amazon won a dirty Oscar.
“I forcefully begged studio head to do the right thing. I was ignored.”
“I called my attorney & said I want to get my script back, but before I could, #2 @amazonstudios called to say my show was dead,” she continued.
Earlier this week, Rose McGowan was temporarily blocked from Twitter after a series of Tweets blaming stars such as Ben Affleck for remaining silent despite allegedly knowing about Harvey Weinstein’s actions.
