New York: Actress Rose McGowan on Thursday accused producer Harvey Weinstein of rape on Twitter. The list of women coming out accusing Weinstein of wrongdoing is adding new names during the past week.
Four women have alleged the producer of sexual harassment, the list includes “former aspiring actress” Lucia Evans, Italian actress Asia Argento, Rose Mc Gowan and one anonymous source.
A spokeswoman of Weinstein told CNN, “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein.” Adding to that he said Weinstein is seeking help from therapists.
McGowan’s posted on Twitter tagging Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) CEO Jeff Bezos, on Thursday, claiming that she told the head of Amazon Studios, Roy Price, about the incident.
“@jeffbezos I told the head of your studio that HW raped me,” she wrote, using Weinstein’s initials. “Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof.”
In a series of tweets, McGowan said, she “begged” Amazon Studios to take action and accused the outfit of winning a “dirty Oscar.” It’s unclear what movie McGowan is referring to.
“I love @amazon but there is rot in Hollywood,” she wrote in one tweet. “@jeffbezos Be the change you want to see in the world. Stand with truth.”
Amazon and The Weinstein Co. are partners on two forthcoming streaming TV series.
