Meryl Streep has made a further statement about her ignorance over Harvey Weinstein's alleged decades of sexual misconduct after being accused of being willingly silent by victim Rose McGowan. She has also extended her support to other women and asked them to speak up and his group of women has come to be known as the "Rosearmy".
Amber Tamblyn, left, and Rose McGowan clashed on social media over the weekend. I have never in my life been invited to his hotel.
She then added, "You'll accept a fake award breathlessly and affect no real change. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa", a dig made with regards to Weinstein's estranged wife, Georgina Chapman who is the founder of high-end label Marchesa.
She said: "I don't know".
It was announced last week that a number of women would wear black gowns to the ceremony as a symbol of protest and sign of solidarity as sexual harassment and abuse scandals rock Hollywood.
On Sunday, Tamblyn had criticized her friend McGowan, saying she didn't support anyone who "shamed or taunted" other women who were trying to create change and that the Marchesa comment was "beneath you, Rose". I despise your hypocrisy. "We did not know that women's silence was purchased by him and his enablers".
Asia Argento, who has also accused Weinstein of rape and has been outspoken about the #MeToo movement, said, "I wish you'd have written this thread addressing it directly to @rosemcgowan, or even better, called or texted her, since you are friends".
McGowan, who is the face and voice of the movement against sexual harassment, called out fellow actors who plan to wear black as a silent protest during the Golden Globes.
Streep's statement continued as she explained that she believes Weinstein purposely kept her in the dark because her success was imperative to his own.
McGowan responded in a tweet Monday afternoon, without mentioning Streep or Tamblyn specifically. You actually gave me a body flashback. "Just wearing black dresses doesn't halt anything and the offenders aren't going to care about all-black ensemble, but they'd care if the women refused to make money for them #hitthemwhereithurts", said one person in reply to McGowan's tweet.
