Rose McGowan Slams Actresses Choosing To Wear Black During The Golden Globes

Rose McGowan has previously criticised Meryl Streep for her response to Harvey Weinstein's conduct - when the actress labeled it as an example of "disrespect" in the film industry, McGowan shot back "no, Meryl, IT'S A FUCKING CRIME". "I despise your hypocrisy", she wrote on Twitter. The publication, Extra, asked Streep if she would be participating and she said she didn't know, and they would have to "tune in".

A few days ago, US Weekly reported that more than 30 female actors who are attending and or presenting at the 2018 Golden Globes have vowed to wear all black to this year's ceremony. "YOUR SILENCE is THE problem", McGowan tweeted.

According to reports, Streep was one of the women to take the lead in speaking out against the producer.

In addition to Streep, who has spoken out vocally against Weinstein despite working with him on August: Osage County and The Iron Lady, Jessica Chastain and Emma Stone are those who are said to be wearing black.

The flood of allegations that have washed through Hollywood since Harvey Weinstein's accusers have come forward sparked a #MeToo movement and more women have bravely chosen to speak up. 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. She suggested that actresses like Streep wear Marchesa, a high-end womenswear brand co-founded by Weinstein's estranged wife Georgina Chapman, who stated shortly after the allegations that she was leaving her husband.

Streep hailed "the intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse" - a group that includes McGowan, Ashley Judd and Asia Argento - as heroic. "Each courageous voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game".
