Meryl Streep Posters Claim 'She Knew' About Harvey Weinstein
Overnight, posters of Academy Award-winner Meryl Streep have sprung up around neighborhoods in Los Angeles.
But they aren't to promote her latest film. No, instead, the posters show the actress beside producer Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual misconduct.
Superimposed over Streep's eyes are the words, "She Knew."
It is currently unknown who is responsible for the posters, which surfaced a day after Streep issued a statement in which she denied knowing of Weinstein's alleged misconduct.
In case you missed it, Streep recently implied that she might be among the many celebrities expected to wear black to the Golden Globe awards in silent protest of sexual misconduct in Hollywood.
Upon hearing the news, Rose McGowan wrote in a now deleted tweet:
“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 chance. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.”
Streep then responded to McGowan's accusations in the aforementioned statement.
"It hurt to be attacked by Rose McGowan in banner headlines this weekend, but I want to let her know I did not know about Weinstein’s crimes, not in the 90s when he attacked her, or through subsequent decades when he proceeded to attack others."
