American actor Rose McGowan, one of disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein's most vocal critics, has had her Twitter account suspended for violating the site's rules.

McGowan has alleged Weinstein sexually assaulted her in 1997, and as more women have come forward with similar allegations in recent days, she has used Twitter to share the stories and lead a charge against Weinstein.

In an Instagram post on Thursday, McGowan revealed Twitter had temporarily restricted access to her account.


It is unclear exactly which of Twitter's rules McGowan broke and which were the offending tweets.

In recent posts, McGowan told Ben Affleck — who also has been forced to apologise after video of him groping a woman re-emerged — to "f*** off" and called Weinstein's brother Bob a "POS".

McGowan started an online petition to try to dissolve The Weinstein Company — which currently has over 11,000 signatures — and encouraged her #RoseArmy to help her "slay dragons".

"[The Weinstein Company] You don't get to change your company name and be done with it," McGowan tweeted.

"Every man there has the blood of sorrow on their hands. You are dirty."

She also called Affleck a liar on Tuesday, after the Good Will Hunting actor expressed his disgust when learning of Weinstein's indiscretions.

The list of people to have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct now includes model and actor Cara Delevigne, and actors Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Weinstein has reportedly reached eight settlements with women in the past 30 years after being confronted with allegations of sexual harassment, according to The New York Times.
