Rose McGowan slams Meryl Streep over 'silent protest' at Golden Globes

Rose McGowan slams Meryl Streep over 'silent protest' at Golden Globes

Women including Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, and Jessica Chastain are rumored to be participating in this protest, although Rose McGowan thinks the all-black message is nothing more than a stupid little stunt.

On Dec. 14 it was reported that during the Golden Globes on January 7, actresses, including nominees and presenters, were planning to wear black to protest gender inequality and to acknowledge the flood of sexual abuse allegations that have rocked Hollywood beginning with Weinstein.

On Friday, it was reported that a number of Hollywood actresses would take part in a silent protest honouring the many women who have been affected by sexual misconduct, many at the hands of disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.

Tamblyn said that while she supports McGowan and her cause, she thought it was "beneath" her to attack Streep and said that these actresses should be considered allies in the fight against harassment.

The former Charmed star is not holding back - again. "YOUR SILENCE is THE problem", McGowan wrote, referring to Harvey Weinstein, who she says raped her in 1997. "Maybe you should all wear Marchesa", she added, referencing the fashion line of Weinstein's estranged wife Georgina Chapman.

CDC Tells Staff to Avoid Seven Words, Including "Evidence-Based"
Matt Lloyd , a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees the CDC, disputed the story. Analysts reportedly said they were given some alternate phrases to use in place of the banned ones.

Weinstein himself is presumably the "Pig Monster" in McGowan's tweet. "I'm not talking. You gotta tune in, don't ya?"

Rose McGowan has no time for the "hypocrisy" that she says will be on full display during the planned Golden Globes blackout.

Weinstein, 64, has been accused by several women, including actress Ashley Judd, of unwanted physical contact and sexual harassment over the past few decades.

Streep spoke out about Weinstein days after the scandal broke in early October, saying that she was "appalled" and calling the women who spoke out "our heroes". "The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar".

The news comes in the wake of sexual misconduct accusations against film producer Weinstein, who has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
