"Not everybody knew", Streep's statement read.
"Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster (Harvey Weinstein), are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest", she wrote on Twitter on Saturday (Sunday NZ Time). You'll accept a fake award breathlessly and affect no real change.
"Rose McGowan is a friend and while I support her kind of movement, I do not support any woman (or man) shaming or taunting the movements of other women who are trying to create change", Tamblyn tweeted Sunday.
McGowan - who was one of the first of 84 women to accuse Weinstein of sexual misconduct, claiming the producer raped her in 1997 - said that Streep and her contemporaries were putting on little more than a dog and pony show to adhere to the current trend in Tinseltown. I'm not talking. You gotta tune in, don't ya?' 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.
"I despise your hypocrisy", she continued bitingly. "The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes", Streep said back in October.
Weinstein, 64, has been accused by several women, including actress Ashley Judd, of unwanted physical contact and sexual harassment over the past few decades.
'Each courageous voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game, ' Streep said. Earlier this month she blasted the Oscar victor over an article in which Streep claimed that the Weinstein allegations were "the most gargantuan example of disrespect". Still, the New York Times reported McGowan and Weinstein reached an undisclosed settlement in 1997 after an alleged incident in a hotel room.
