It’s unclear as to when McGowan learned of the warrant, but on Monday she tweeted about it.
“Are they trying to silence me,” she tweeted. “There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia. What a load of HORSES**T.”
McGowan has become one of Harvey Weinstein’s most high-profile accusers in one of Hollywood’s biggest scandals, which has found the mogul accused by more than 60 women of acts of harassment, sexual assault and rape.
Weinstein, through his spokesperson, has denied “any allegations of non-consensual sex.”
On Friday McGowan gave a rousing speech at the Women’s Convention in Detroit, Michigan where she talked about her rape allegation against Weinstein and the ensuing fallout of the scandal.
She said she wanted “to be a voice for all of us who’ve been told we are nothing.”
“I have been silenced for 20 years,” McGowan said. “I have been slut shamed, I’ve been harassed, I’ve been maligned. And you know what, I’m just like you.”
CNN has reached out to a rep for McGowan for further comment.
