Activist and actress Rose McGowan is accusing Twitter of targeting her for censorship after her account was suspended over a tweet about Jeffrey Epstein and Bill Clinton. The former Charmed star cut a video for Russia Today to take Twitter chief Jack Dorsey to task for shutting her out of her Twitter account.

“What are you so afraid of Jack Dorsey, a little freedom of speech?” McGowan said in her video. “I know Twitter is trying to silence me, and I know a lot of powerful Democrats are behind it.”

“Let me speak,” Rose McGowan concluded in the video. “I am more dangerous if you silence me.”

McGowan was suspended over a tweet accusing Democrats of putting party over principles.

“If you put your party over principles, over ethics, you are the problem not me. You can come for me all you want, I do not care. This is your cult leader. If you aren’t disgusted, to take a long hard look in the mirror & wake the F up. Photo taken on Epstein’s island,” McGowan reportedly wrote early this week.

The tweet included an image of artwork by British artist Alison Jackson depicting a woman giving Bill Clinton a massage which McGowan called “Photo taken on Epstein’s island.”

Twitter locked McGowan’s account and sent her a note informing her that it had determined that her tweet was “violating our rules against posting or sharing privately produced/distributed intimate media of someone without their express content.”

Days before her suspension, McGowan also posted a tweet calling out Vice President Kamala Harris after it was announced that she was set to participate in a speaking engagement with Bill Clinton on the subject of empowering women and girls.

McGowan called the Harris-Clinton event “obscene” and said the former president had been seen on convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s private island.

“This is obscene @KamalaHarris. You speaking with Bill Clinton about empowering women & girls is disgusting,” McGowan tweeted on March 24. “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.”

Bill Clinton has a long history of being accused of sexual misconduct and rape. He was impeached in 1998 for perjury and obstruction of justice due to his actions surrounding his sexual dalliance with a White House intern.

Rose McGowan became one of the faces of the #MeToo movement after she said that Harvey Weinstein raped her at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997.
