Rose McGowan Slams Meryl Streep And The Golden Globes Black Dress Protest

Share

There was also harsh criticism from actress Rose McGowan - one of the most vocal accusers of Harvey Weinstein.

According to agency, more than 30 female actresses who are attending and or presenting at the 2018 Golden Globes have vowed to wear all black to this year's ceremony.

'You'll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change, ' McGowan said, adding, 'I despise your hypocrisy'.

"Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest", Rose McGowan wrote on Twitter, referring to Weinstein. The mention of Marchesa is a dig at Weinstein's wife and fashion designer, Georgina Chapman who has since left him. This includes presenters and nominees like Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep and Emma Stone.

When asked by reporters if she would be wearing black at the Globes, Streep replied "I don't know, I'm not talking, you gotta tune in, don't ya?"

"No, Meryl, IT'S A F-KING CRIME", McGowan tweeted on December 8. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa. "Harvey supported the work fiercely, was exasperating but respectful with me in our working relationship, and with many others with whom he worked professionally".

However, the extent of his behavior was not known by all.

"The behaviour is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar", Streep had said.

Streep spoke out about Weinstein days after the scandal broke in early October, saying that she was "appalled" and calling the women who spoke out "our heroes".

The sexual harassment allegations that have been rocking Hollywood as of late will be center stage on the red carpet of the 75 Annual Golden Globes. Other women to speak out vehemently against the producer are Asia Argento, who claims the producer raped her when she was just starting out in Hollywood.
