In Weinstein saga, Rose McGowan emerges as powerful voice

NEW YORK (AP) — Rose McGowan has shown she will not be easily silenced, emerging from a brief suspension on Twitter Thursday to post her most pointed allegation at disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein.

McGowan tweeted that a person with the initials “HW” had raped her, an apparent reference to Weinstein. The Hollywood Reporter later said McGowan confirmed she was referring to the Oscar-winning producer.

Weinstein’s representative Sallie Hofmeister says her client denies all allegations of non-consensual contact.

McGowan’s tweet and several others directed at Amazon head Jeff Bezos capped the end of a wild week since The New York Times first reported detailed allegations of harassment allegations against Weinstein that spanned decades.

By day’s end, Amazon Studios had placed its chief, Roy Price, on leave after a producer alleged Price sexually harassed her.
