When Streep was asked directly by Extra if she'd be protesting at the Globes, Streep replied: "I don't know". "You'll accept a fake award and breathlessly [and] affect no real change". Maybe you should all wear Marchesa. She particularly called out Meryl Streep for working with Harvey Weinstein.
Although McGowan called out Streep, she hasn't confirmed if she plans to participate in any such protest. "YOUR SILENCE is THE problem", she wrote.
McGowan, however, who has been an outspoken critic of many who she believes continue to play a role in the problems within Hollywood, took to Twitter on Saturday to criticise the actresses planning their silent protest. I'm not talking. You gotta tune in, don't ya?'
Weinstein, 64, has been accused by several women, including actress Ashley Judd, of unwanted physical contact and sexual harassment over the past few decades.
Actress Rose McGowan has been on the forefront for fighting against sexual harassment.
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".
This month, McGowan turned on Streep after the latter actress characterized Weinstein's behavior as "the most gargantuan example of disrespect" across multiple industries dealing with similar accusations.
Streep said in her statement, "One thing can be clarified". 'I did not know about his having meetings in his hotel room, his bathroom, or other inappropriate, coercive acts.
"The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar", she said, adding that "each courageous voice that is raised, heard and credited" in the media "will ultimately change the game".
