Rose McGowan’s Twitter account has been suspended, temporarily muting a central figure in the allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

McGowan says that Twitter had suspended her from tweeting after the social media company said she broke its rules. On her Instagram account, McGowan says “there are powerful forces at work” and pleads for others to “be my voice.”

Representatives for Twitter declined to comment Thursday.

The New York Times earlier reported that McGowan was among the numerous women sexually harassed by Weinstein, who paid McGowan a financial settlement in 1997.

McGowan on Tuesday tweeted “now I am allowed to say rapist.”

McGowan also recently called Ben Affleck “a liar”. In a tweet, McGowan accused Affleck of lying after issuing a statement that he was “saddened and angry” about the Weinstein revelations. McGowan suggested Affleck knew decades ago about Weinstein’s behavior.

Representatives for Affleck haven’t responded to messages regarding that allegation.
