The boycott started with Twitter user Kelly Kills coming up with the hashtag to show support of McGowan after the Twitter suspension took place.

Shortly beforehand, McGowan was in the middle of calling out other celebs for being aware of Weinstein’s lewd actions, such as Ben Affleck and Disney CEO Bob Iger.

“‘GODDAMNIT! I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT’ you said that to my face. The press conf I was made to go to after assault. You lie.” McGowan wrote to Affleck.

In response to the chaos, Twitter claimed she was suspended for posting her phone number.

Really, Twitter? I’m not buying it.

Publications, celebrities, and activists have joined the Twitter ban in response to McGowan.

Alyssa Milano has said she would stand with her Charmed co-star. Celebrities Chrissy Teigen, Anna Paquin, Terry Cruz, John Cusak, Mark Ruffalo, Jessica Chastain, and many more have made their opinions clear on showing McGowan support..

McGowan didn’t hesitate in calling out Amazon’s chief executive, Jeff Bezos. She said she had confided in the head of his studio that, “HW raped me.”

The executive, Mr. Price, was put on a “leave of absence” immediately after the accusations came out.

McGowan was also among one of the women that Weinstein reportedly paid to stay silent. After the 1997 Sundance Festival incident, she reached a $100,000 settlement with Weinstein’s lawyers.

If you stand with #ROSEARMY and are thinking about boycotting Twitter today, I admire you for doing so.

No woman’s voice should be silenced.
