Rose McGowan alleges Weinstein raped her, attacks Amazon studios

Rose McGowan, who was blocked from Twitter but then re-instated, had some pithy words for Jeff Bezos and Amazon Studios about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual indiscretions.

On Thursday, the “Charmed” actress posted a picture of a female samurai with the caption “it’s on,” … then wrote, “I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it.”

She also called for Besos to “stop funding rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers.”

Apparently she’s had some impact: The New York Daily News reported that Amazon studio head Roy Price was suspended for a separate sexual harassment claim.

Meanwhile, Twitter officials said her account was temporarily locked because she posted a private phone number in one of her messages.

Just about everyone in Hollywood seems to have comments about Weinstein: The Writers Guild of America condemned him for “deplorable misconduct”; Jane Fonda said she was “ashamed” she didn’t speak up about him sooner; Kate Beckinsale called him “an emblem of a system that is sick”; and Emma Thompson called him a “predator.”

Others piping up include: Cara Delevingne, Leonardo DiCaprio, Blake Lively, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hanks, Benedict Cumberbatch and Ryan Gosling.

Some men shared stories of being victimized, as well. Terry Crews and James Van Der Beek blasted high-powered men in Hollywood for harassing them.

In separate revelations on social media, the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star and “Dawson’s Creek” alums, respectively, shared disgusting stories. Crews said, “a high level Hollywood executive came over 2 me and groped my privates” while Van Der Beek wrote, that, as a young actor, I had “my ass grabbed by older, powerful men.”

RED CARPET DANGER

Mexican soap star Eduardo Yáñez has apologized for slapping a reporter on the red carpet.

The 57-year-old actor wasn’t pleased when photojournalist Paco Fuentes of “El Gordo y La Flaca” pressed him about a GoFundMe page his son posted to pay for car repairs instead of getting the money from his dad.

Yáñez told Fuentes he was disrespectful and struck him across the face in a video that’s gone viral.

On Thursday, Yáñez apologized (in Spanish) on Twitter, adding that his “personal life wasn’t for sale.”
