According to the statement made by the Terms Of Service's account, the actress violated a rule by making a phone number public. The Tweet has been removed and her account has been unlocked. "We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future," said a statement released by the site.

The tweet itself was a description of a conversation between McGowan and the actor Ben Affleck, who, according to the tweet, knew about sexual harassment done by Harvey Weinstein over the years.

Weinstein's case

On October 5, the New York Times brought to light cases of harassment suffered by women in the film industry. The report was about Harvey Weinstein, part owner of The Weinstein Company.

The story reported decades of attempts to silence women who might have tried to report the harassment. McGowan and two other women claim the producer raped them.

Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Judd, Cara Delavigne, Kate Beckinsale, Asia Argento, Heather Graham, Mira Sorvino, Rosanna Arquette, Léa Seydoux, and Emily Nestor are just a few of the 30 women who talked about their cases these past 10 days.

Weinstein's lawyer says that her client will not confirm the allegations made by the actresses.

Hollywood's reaction

Several actors, producers, and were also directors talked about this past week, following on from Harvey Weinstein's case. Old cases have resurfaced in the media, bringing new developments to cases.

In 2011, Jason Momoa was in a press conference to promote "Game of Thrones," when he allegedly said that being able to "rape beautiful women," was one of the things he loved the most about the show.

He has apologized this week.

Amazon Studios has suspended Roy Price, the Entertainment Chief, over an harassment behavior allegation made by Isa Hackett. The event happened in 2015. According to a statement received by The Hollywood Reporter, he is on leave "indefinitely."

The streaming platform reviewed its options about the two shows under production by the Weinstein Company. The untitled TV series developed by David O. Russell, with Robert De Niro in the cast, will not move forward.
