The actress posted a video on Twitter hours after Weinstein turned 66.
The clip begins with McGowan telling Weinstein, “I told you we’d be coming.” McGowan was among the first to accuse Weinstein of sexual misconduct.
McGowan continues: “I told you 20 years ago if I heard of you doing this to another girl or woman, we would come for you, I would come for you.”
She leans in closer to the camera and says, “Happy f***ing birthday” before winking and nodding her head.
She tilts the camera down and stares up into the lens and whispers, “We win” before winking at the camera again.
McGowan previously accused Weinstein of rape on Twitter but did not go into details about the alleged incident.
The New York Times obtained a copy of her new memoir Brave, and the paper says McGowan refers to Weinstein in the book only as “the Monster.”
The actress writes that she was sent up to his suite in Park City, Utah, where she thought they were going to have a meeting about her career.
McGowan says that Weinstein pulled her into a room and took her clothes off, where she froze “like a statue.”
She goes on to say that Weinstein proceeded to sit her on the side of the room’s jacuzzi and perform oral sex on her while he masturbated, according to the NYT review.
McGowan also writes that she told some people who “counselled me to see it as something that would help my career in the long run” and was allegedly told by a criminal lawyer she wouldn’t be believed if she decided to press charges against Weinstein.
Weinstein, through his spokesperson, has denied “any allegations of non-consensual sex.”
McGowan was among the women cited in an initial New York Times report last October as having settled harassment claims against Weinstein. The report claimed that Weinstein paid US$100,000 to McGowan in 1997 over the incident in the hotel room at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.
On Monday, The Weinstein Co. announced it filed for voluntary bankruptcy and struck a deal to sell its assets to Lantern Capital Partners.
It also announced victims of alleged sexual misconduct would be released from their nondisclosure agreements.
“The Company expressly releases any confidentiality provision to the extent it has prevented individuals who suffered or witnessed any form of sexual misconduct by Harvey Weinstein from telling their stories,” the statement read.
More than 100 women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct.
