Rose McGowan has been suspended from Twitter
The 44-year-old actress has revealed via her Instagram account that she’s been blocked from the micro-blogging site after she told Ben Affleck to “f**k off” and accused him of lying about his knowledge of movie producer Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct.
The Scream star has been banned – meaning she is not able to send tweets or retweets from her account – for 12 hours, after Twitter ruled that she had violated the site’s rules
Rose has been one of the most vocal critics of Weinstein, alleging that the film producer sexually harassed and assaulted her earlier in her career.

What’s more, she blasted Affleck after the actor condemned Weinstein’s alleged acts of sexual harassment, claiming that he has been aware of the accusations for years
Affleck, 45, has apologised to actress Hilarie Burton for groping her during an appearance on MTV’s Total Request Live back in 2003.
Meanwhile, Cate Blanchett recently offered her “wholehearted support” to the women who have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct.
The 48-year-old actress – who worked with the movie mogul on a number of films, including Carol and The Aviator – applauded the likes of Rose and Ashley Judd for coming forward.
She explained: “Any man in a position of power or authority who thinks it’s his prerogative to threaten, intimidate or sexually assault any woman he encounters or works alongside needs to be called to account.
“It is never easy for a woman to come forward in such situations and I wholeheartedly support those who have.”
In the wake of the scandal, Weinstein – who has denied many of the allegations – has been sacked from The Weinstein Company and his wife of ten years, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, has left him.
