Amber Tamblyn defended the actresses who are planning to wear black at the Golden Globes as a silent protest against sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood.

“Rose McGowan is a friend and while I support her kind of movement, I do not support any woman (or man) shaming or taunting the movements of other women who are trying to create change,” the 34-year-old actress tweeted Sunday in response to McGowan, who criticized actresses planning to participate in the silent protest, according to Entertainment Weekly. (RELATED: Rose McGowan Slams Meryl Streep For Silent Protest Planned For Golden Globes)

“Telling us to all wear Marchesa? This is beneath you, Rose,” Tamblyn added. The Marchesa reference was to the fashion line designed by Harvey Weinstein’s estranged wife, Georgina Chapman.

“You don’t have to support and stand with us, but we stand and support you. You may take below the belt shots at us but we will not take them at you in return,” she continued, before claiming that change was coming to “every industry across the country.”

The tweet thread comes in response to McGowan who said actresses like Meryl Streep and others reportedly participating in the silent protest were “the problem.”

“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 another report.

“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.”
