Rose McGowan isn’t pleased with the idea that many of her fellow actresses in Hollywood are planning to wear black to the Golden Globes ceremony as a symbol to protest the sexual misconduct in Hollywood. Today, Saturday, December 16th, the 44-year-old actress said their “silent protest” is a part of the problem.
Additionally, in her tweet, she called out the legendary actress, Meryl Streep, who worked with Harvey Weinstein many times over the course of her career.
She said women such as Meryl Streep, who happily worked for what she called, “The Pig Monster,” are wearing black and they’re not helping.
Furthermore, McGowan derisively stated that all of the women who go to the awards should wear Marchesa, the company owned by Harvey’s wife, Georgina Chapman.
However, it isn’t for sure that Meryl will wear black during the ceremony. The publication, Extra, asked Streep if she would be participating and she said she didn’t know, and they would have to “tune in.”
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.

According to reports, Streep was one of the women to take the lead in speaking out against the producer. She said, while working with Harvey was “exasperating” at times, he was highly competent at his job.
However, the extent of his behavior was not known by all. Either way, his behavior was inexcusable, and the abuse of power was abhorrent.
Streep praises the courage of the women who chose to speak out and let their stories be heard. Rose McGowan, on the other hand, is taking a more militant hard-line approach to activism, who insinuates that the awards ceremonies should be boycotted altogether. 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.
