Actress #Rose Mcgowan, who is one of Weinstein’s accusers, has tweeted to say that “anyone does business” with Harvey Weinstein (without actually naming him, but she suggested it was him) is “complicit” in his crimes.

She said that his business associates should know “deep down” that they are “even dirtier.” She then advised that they “cleanse” themselves.
