After the New York Times published an article detailing decades of sexual harassment at the hands of film producer Harvey Weinstein, many celebrities began speaking out against Hollywood's tendency to cover up the deplorable actions of powerful people. Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie shared their own stories of being harassed by Weinstein. Terry Crews tweeted about being groped in public by a Hollywood bigwig. Stories like these will more than likely continue to come out in the wake of Weinstein's dethroning.
Rose McGowan has been one of the most vocal celebrities. Unfortunately, Twitter seems to have a problem with that.
As people continue to share their stories of being harassed, abused, and paid off by Harvey Weinstein, actor Rose McGowan has consistently shown her support for the victims.
