AceShowbiz - Rose McGowan got a lot of support and love from fans and fellow celebrities alike after her Twitter was suspended. Her account on the social media was frozen amid her strong criticisms towards disgraced movie honcho Harvey Weinstein.

The actress revealed the suspension on Instagram, "Twitter has suspended me. There are powerful forces at work. Be my voice. #RoseArmy." Before she was wiped out from Twitter, she had been calling out Weinsten, Ben Affleck, Casey Affleck and Matt Damon.

"Hey @Twitter let us know which of these rules @rosemcgowan broke. Asking for multiple victims of sexual violence," Jessica Chastain reacted. Patricia Arquette wrote, "@rosemcgowan 's twitter account has been suspended. I expect to start seeing smear stories on her anytime now. This is the sad reality."

Jeffrey Wright tweeted support to her as well, "Suspend @rosemcgowan, @Twitter, but @realDonaldTrump'll be on here tomorrow morning slathered in threats & bile? Yeah. Fix that quick." Lily Allen was also perplexed as she asked, "What did they suspend her over ?"

Jon Cryer slammed Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey, "Sincerely @jack wtf?! Why is @rosemcgowan suspended?" Holly Marie Combs posted a similar message, "Wtf @Twitter @jack? My timeline is inundated with heinously offensive bots daily and this is the account you suspend? I need an explanation."

Actor/director Paul Feig was among McGowan's supporters as he commented, "Wow, @Twitter, seriously? THIS is the account you suspend but not Trump who threatened to wipe out another country? Suspend me too, please."

Rose McGowan's account has since been reactivated. Twitter then explained the suspension, "We have been in touch with Ms. McGowan's team. We want to explain that her account was temporarily locked because one of her Tweets included a private phone number, which violates of our Terms of Service. The Tweet was removed and her account has been unlocked. We will be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future."

The company continued, "Twitter is proud to empower and support the voices on our platform, especially those that speak truth to power. We stand with the brave women and men who use Twitter to share their stories, and will work hard every day to improve our processes to protect those voices."

Jack Dorsey also weighed in on the debacle. He wrote on his own page, "We need to be a lot more transparent in our actions in order to build trust."

Rose McGowan was one of Harvey Weinstein's victims that included Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevingne and Gwyneth Paltrow. Weinstein has since been fired from his movie company. U.S. and U.K. reportedly launched investigations into his sexual harassment.

Weinstein allegedly checked into rehab. His daughter recently called 911, claiming he was suicidal. When running into paparazzi, he had this to say: "I'm hanging in. I'm trying my best. I'm not doing okay, but I'm trying. I gotta get help...We all make mistakes. Second chance, I hope."
