Only in a weird distant future did horror fans of the 60’s conceive the possibility of visceral feminists and horror fans coming together on Friday The 13th to boycott twitter.This occurred after one of the most beloved horror actress’ profile being banned by twitter. That’s right Rose Mcgowan’s account had been banned by Twitter due to her claims against Harvey Weinstein.
Her claims,or rather truths that she aired about his sexual predator like behavior has been on the back off many other recent reports to the media surrounding his behavior. She shared her story via the net and has been at the forefront of boycotting Mr Weinstein.The aftermath is simple, once again a powerful man walks free whilst another women in the media is positioned as playing the victim. We were outraged here at All Things Horror that a beloved actress both in our genre and in the rest of the film industry could be treated this way by such a high profile online media platform.
What occured on the 13th will be another dark chapter amongst a gloomy book, and despite not having belief in the fact some men will never overcome their inbuilt bigotry and misogyny, we stand with you Rose and will always love you for your role in Scream.
