Rose McGowan SLAMS Meryl Streep In New Tweet
Meryl Streep has spent decades pretty much being the most un-slammable celebrity in Hollywood - unless you include Donald Trump's searing insight into the actresses' acting prowess - but Rose McGowan is now taking aim at Streep for what she considers to be her hypocritical stance regarding Harvey Weinstein.
It all started with over thirty celebrities promised to wear all black at the upcoming Golden Globes on January 7th in order to protest sexual misconduct in Hollywood. Streep insinuated that she might be in on the movement during an interview with Extra, and now McGowan is blasting Streep over her long and very fruitful professional relationship with the uber powerful producer. When asked if she would wear all black, Streep responded:
I don’t know. I’m not talking. You gotta tune in, don’t ya?
McGowan's quickly took to Twitter with:
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 change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.
Streep has enjoyed multiple award-winning collabs with Weinstein, but has claimed to know nothing of his misconduct in Hollywood:
I didn’t know about these other offenses: I did not know about his financial settlements with actresses and colleagues; I did not know about his having meetings in his hotel room, his bathroom, or other inappropriate, coercive acts.
Do you think McGowan's tweet is warranted, or is she messing with the wrong woman? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
