WOW! Hollywood Heartthrob Reveals He Was Sexually Harassed By “Powerful Men”

The bombshell report on Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is becoming more shocking by the day. Actors and Actresses are taking this rare opportunity to expose the wickedness in Hollywood to reveal their own stories of sexual abuse. Dawson’s Creek star James Van Der Beek reveals he was touched by “older, powerful men.”

Guardian UK reports:

Van Der Beek made the claims on Twitter in a series of posts that offered support to the women who had spoken out against Weinstein. “For anyone judging the women who stayed silent, read this for perspective. Also for anyone brushing off harassment as ‘boys being boys’,” he wrote, linking to an article from fashion website The Cut that detailed a writer’s hotel-room experience with a “powerful man”.

The former Dawson’s Creek actor went on to recount his own personal experience of abuse, though he did not name names. “I’ve had my ass grabbed by older, powerful men, I’ve had them corner me in inappropriate sexual conversations when I was much younger,” he wrote. “I understand the unwarranted shame, powerlessness & inability to blow the whistle. There’s a power dynamic that feels impossible to overcome”.

Speaking about Hollywood’s evil ways can get you silenced. Ben Affleck’s former co-star Rose McGowan learned that the hard way after being suspended from Twitter for speaking out about Weinstein.

McGowan has been the leading female voice against Harvey Weinstein this week.

Now this…
Twitter reportedly suspended McGowan’s account on Wednesday.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

The actress, who is at the center of the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal, revealed the news on her Instagram and Facebook accounts.
Rose McGowan had her Twitter account suspended on Wednesday night.

The actress, who is at the center of the storm of sexual misconduct allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein, took to her Instagram and Facebook accounts to relay the news of her suspension, writing cryptically that: “TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME.

She added a screenshot from a message from Twitter telling her that she had violated their terms of service and she would be locked out for 12 hours.
