Ben Affleck Accused of Groping 'TRL' Host Amid Harvey Weinstein Scandal

Ben Affleck Accused of Groping 'TRL' Host Amid Harvey Weinstein Scandal

Rose McGowan's Twitter account was temporarily blocked for violating some of the social network's rules.

Twitter says it has clamped down on 10 times as many abusive tweeters as it did a year ago, but Rose McGowan's recent account locking suggests that the efficacy of its approach is still unclear.

Affleck, whose film Good Will Hunting was produced by Weinstein, posted on Facebook that he was "saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades".

The post featured a screenshot of a message she said she got from Twitter saying that she was in violation of the website's rules.

Twitter said she must delete some of her tweets to have the suspension lifted. Paltrow told the NYT that Weinstein sexually harassed her in a hotel room when she was 22.

Affleck apologised for his behaviour hours later with people branding him a "hypocrite" for calling out Weinstein.

Twitter also apologized for the confusion and it insisted that it supports McGowan and other sexual assault survivors' use of the platform to speak out.

Meanwhile, actor and screenwriter Seth MacFarlane has explained a joke he made against Weinstein during a 2013 Oscars lead-up ceremony "came from a place of loathing and anger". A clip also resurfaced of Ben groping a young woman during a TRL interview in the early 2000s, and he was accused by a Hollywood makeup artist of groping her as well.

"Any allegations of non-consensual contact are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein", Weinstein representative Sallie Hofmeister said Wednesday.

"Weinstein allegations highlight "systemic" disrespect of women in film". It's safe to say that pressure will mount for Twitter to figure out guidelines that make sense, enforce them uniformly and communicate more transparently about them.

Affleck became one of the members of Hollywood to denounce Weinstein in light of the accusations, but McGowan tweeted, "F- off".

One person she has gone after (in a totally delightful, delicious way imo) is Ben Afflect.
