Rose McGowan Slams Meryl Streep For Silent Protest Planned For Golden Globes
Rose McGowan slammed actresses like Meryl Streep who were reportedly planning to wear black to the Golden Globes next month in protest of sexual harassment in Hollywood.
“Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest,” McGowan tweeted Saturday as she referenced Harvey Weinstein, according to Entertainment Weekly.

“YOUR SILENCE is THE problem,” she added. “You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.” The Marchesa comment was a reference to the fashion line designed by Weinstein’s estranged wife Georgina Chapman.

The 44-year-old “Charmed” star made the comment following reports Thursday that many of the actresses who would be attending the 75th Annual award show in January were planning on wearing black as a sign of solidarity in protest of things like gender inequalities in Hollywood and sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.
“So all of the female actresses and attendees, or most of them at least, are standing in solidarity together in a form of protest,” Jackie Oshry shared on The Morning Breath. “They’re all going to be wearing black, obviously, to protest the injustices that have been taking place in Hollywood since forever.”
Streep has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in “The Post.” When asked by Extra if she was planning to wear black, the 68-year-old actress didn’t give an answer.
“I don’t know. I’m not talking,” Streep shared Friday. “You gotta tune in, don’t ya?”
