McGowan has often spoken in veiled terms about an incident that occurred between her and the former Weinstein Company head in 1997, though the details of that incident long appeared to be blocked by a nondisclosure agreement. Last week’s New York Times report, which exposed years of allegations against Weinstein, included mention of the incident, which reportedly occurred during the Sundance Film Festival and resulted in Weinstein paying McGowan a $100,000 settlement. Hours after the reinstatement of her Twitter account, actress and filmmaker Rose McGowan hit the social media platform with her most damning message yet: Harvey Weinstein raped her. In a series of tweets directed at Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, McGowan said that she told the head of Amazon Studios about the incident after she sold a script to the online platform. While McGowan said that she “begged” the studio to not work with Weinstein on an unnamed project, they “ignored” her and killed her show.
