Rose McGowan has slammed actresses who are reportedly planning on wearing black at the Golden Globes in a "silent protest" against sexual harassment in Hollywood.
On Saturday, 16 December, the Scream actress took to social media to call out one actress in particular - Meryl Streep.
Calling Weinstein 'The Pig Monster", the 44-year-old actress, who has accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her, pointed out that the Oscar-winning actress and others like her happily worked with the disgraced movie mogul before allegations of rape and sexual harassment came out in public with the New York Times article in October.
"Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You'll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy," she wrote on Twitter. She suggested that actresses like Streep wear Marchesa, a high-end womenswear brand co-founded by Weinstein's estranged wife Georgina Chapman, who stated shortly after the allegations that she was leaving her husband.
"My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions," Chapman, who married Weinstein in 2007, said, according to E! News. "I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time."
When Extra asked Streep whether she would be taking part in the protest, the 68-year-old actress replied: "I don't know. I'm not talking. You gotta tune in, don't ya?"
Shortly after the Weinstein scandal broke, Streep had said that those who raised their voices after experiencing the alleged terrifying sexual abuse at the hands of the producer are "our heroes".
Streep had also said that Weinstein was "respectful" towards her while they were working on different projects, but "not everybody knew" about him sexually assaulting actresses.
"The behaviour is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar," Streep had said. "Each brave voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game."
