Actor Rose McGowan tweeted a message of support to Tesla and Space X CEO Elon Musk, who is in the midst of a public battle to buy Twitter.
The message from McGowan simply reads "go [Elon Musk] go! Destroy the parasites. You got this," with a gif of Robert Redford from the 1972 film "Jeremiah Johnson," nodding his head in agreement.
Musk has described himself as a free speech absolutist, and has voiced his vision for the platform, which would not be so quick to suspend users for tweets. Current Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal has said the platform is not beholden to free speech laws.
In the weeks and months leading up to the billionaire's purchasing of over 9 percent of the company's shares, Musk polled users of the tech giant on whether or not they believed that Twitter "rigorously adheres" to the principles of free speech, which he views as essential to a functioning democracy, as did the founding fathers of the United States.
McGowan is no stranger to Twitter jail, as she was suspended for being outspoken in 2017. The suspension was for violating Twitter rules "after she tweeted in support of women who had come forward with claims they had been sexually abused by powerhouse Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein," Niarametrics reports.
She was also locked out of the Meta-owned Instagram for a similar post, where she said "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE."
McGowan has expressed her displeasure with the platform on more than one occasion. In 2021, she accused Twitter of trying to censor her after she was again suspended for criticizing Vice President Kamala Harris and President Bill Clinton.
"What are you so afraid of Jack Dorsey, a little freedom of speech?" she said to then-CEO Dorsey in the video. "I know Twitter is trying to silence me, and I know a lot of powerful Democrats are behind it."
"This is obscene @KamalaHarris," McGowan tweeted at Harris on March 25. "You speaking with Bill Clinton about empowering women & girls is disgusting. Have you no soul? Have you no ethics? Ask him about being on an island of human trafficking victims 27 times. You are showing us exactly who you are," she said, referring to flight logs that Clinton travelled with infamous sex trafficker and convicted pervert Jeffery Epstein.
“Let me speak, I am more dangerous if you silence me.” she said.
McGowan is one of many women who accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, for which he is now serving 23 years in prison.
