As Rose McGowan returned to Twitter after a temporary ban with new accusations against Jeff Bezos and Amazon, studio head Roy Price was suspended for a separate sexual harassment claim.

In a series of tweets Thursday, the actress claimed that Harvey Weinstein — who she called “HW” — raped her and that she had warned the head of Amazon about the producer.

“I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof,” she tweeted at Jeff Bezos, likely referring to Price.

“I had already sold a script I wrote to your studio, it was in development. When I heard a Weinstein bailout was in the works I forcefully begged studio head to do the right thing. I was ignored. Deal was done. Amazon won a dirty Oscar. I called my attorney & said I want to get my script back, but before I could, #2 @amazonstudios called to say my show was dead. I am calling on you to stop funding rapists, alleged pedos and sexual harassers. I love @amazon but there is rot in Hollywood. Be the change you want to see in the world. Stand with truth.”

McGowan’s accusations against Amazon came just hours before Isa Hackett, an executive producer on Amazon’s “Man in the High Castle,” claimed that Price sexually harassed her in 2015.

Hackett, daughter of author Philip K. Dick, told the Hollywood Reporter that she and Price, along with Michael Paull, a former top Amazon executive and current CEO of BAMTech, were in a cab on the way from dinner to a party after Comic-Con in San Diego.

“You will love my d–k,” Price told her, Hackett told the Hollywood Reporter. She also claimed that Price said “anal sex” to her at the party while she was talking to other executives.
