Stars Are Boycotting Twitter After Rose McGowan Was Suspended

Stars are voicing their support for Rose McGowan by ditching Twitter for the day.

After Twitter suspended the 44-year-old actress for violating its terms and policies, a movement quickly gained speed with the #WomenBoycottTwitter hashtag to encourage women and allies to silence their social media accounts on Friday (October 13).

Chrissy Teigen
, Gina Rodriguez, and Sarah Paulson are a few female celebs boycotting Twitter for the day while Billy Eichner and Mark Ruffalo are a few men who are also supporting the cause.

See all the stars taking part in the boycott…

    Ava’s tweet is NOT in support of the boycott lmao do you guys just focus on the verified tick?

  • Hypnotist

    From what I understand, she tweeted out someone’s private phone number and got a 12 hour ban for it. Hardly seems to me like POWERFUL FORCES at work. I mean she was able to get right back on and organize a boycott. Also, why not just keep the momentum going instead of throwing a wrench in the machine with this boycott business. Now I’ll have to wait until saturday to read tweets about inappropriate executives compiled by justjared.

    not using twitter is the dumbest boycott ever … it has zero effect on the world.

    Wow. One whole day. How ever will we survive. Jesus these people are so self-absorbed to think anyone is actually going to care about this.

    twitterers think they are changing the world. bunch of dumbasses.

    This is fantastically stupid. McGowan tweeted out a private person’s phone number and deserved the suspension.

    Because she’s a nutcase, she alluded to a conspiracy of “powerful forces” trying to keep her down and other celebs reacted the same way.

    So Twitter came out and clarified why it happened.

    And they still don’t get it? Huh?!

    I mean, I’m all for changing the culture of misogyny and sexual harassment, these new revelations are shaping the national conversation about it in a positive direction, and Weinstein is clearly a pig, but that doesn’t mean we’re not rational anymore, right?….right?

    Twitter isn’t silencing women because of the sexual harassment issue, for crying out loud. But I guess that after years of obscurity, McGowan is loving the dramatics and attention of overwrought statements about the misguided boycott, like, “WE RISE”.

    Then you’ve got Ava Duvernay hijacking it for her own cause about women of color. Don’t get me wrong – I’m all for women of color, but Duvernay is making her own statement to say she’s protesting against something other than what the protest is about?

    This whole thing is weird and illogical. I’m very progressive when it comes to social causes and this is the kind of things that gives us liberals a bad name, when folks on the right call us “hysterical liberals”. We have to be reasoned and question our own assumptions and not do silly kneejerk protests for no reason.

    The twitter boycott is a powerful statement…..if people actually boycott. Social media corporations are getting too big anyway and tip toeing into politics. We don’t need massive corps who basically own us online to be running our government too…

    Are they boycotting because they didn’t know or understand why her account was suspended for 12 hours? Do they still feel the same now that it’s been explained?

    This type of suspension is not unique to Rose McGowan. Others have tweeted they’ve also had to delete a post that was violative of Twitter’s TOS (posting phone numbers, e.g.) and then wait 12 hours to be able to tweet again.

    I felt sorry for rose mcgowan till I knew she took 100k$. She sold herself. And in 2007 (10 years after her “rape”) she took a picture with Weinstein. What The Fuck????
    And I learned today she supported te rapist pedophile Victor Salvas. When the journalist asked her about him being an abuser/sex offender she replies “IT’S NOT MY BUSINESS” Really Rose? And said he’s sweet. Then she called out Ben Affleck but maybe it wasn’t his business.

    Same for Asia Argento who said he raped her but signed the petition to set Polanski freer from jail. So Weinstein is a predator & rapist (I agree) but not Polanski who anal raped a 13 years old girl? It’s not ok for her but it’s ok for a little girl?

    They all knew. hypocisy at its finest
