Actress Rose McGowan, who accused film mogul Harvey Weinstein of rape, slammed Meryl Streep and other actresses who want to use next month’s Golden Globe Awards to virtue-signal.
“Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster [Weinstein], are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest,” McGowan wrote Saturday in a since-deleted tweet. “YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly and affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy.”
McGowan was reacting to reports that a group of actresses will wear black on the red carpet of the 2017 Golden Globe Awards as part of a “silent protest” to condemn sexual harassment and rape in show business.
Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, and Jessica Chastain are among the actresses who will participate, People reported. But McGowan said the “silent protest” is nothing more than a hollow gesture some are engaging in to make themselves feel better about not speaking out earlier, and to look virtuous in front of fans.
McGowan is furious that Hollywood elites kept silent about Weinstein’s 30-year pattern of sexually harassing and abusing women because he made them rich and famous. In 2012, Streep breathlessly thanked Weinstein after winning the Golden Globe award for best actress and called him a “god.”
Rose McGowan also trashed actress Alyssa Milano for supporting Harvey Weinstein’s wife, fashion designer Georgina Chapman, during her divorce. McGowan and Milano previously co-starred on the hit TV show “Charmed.”
“You make me want to vomit. You actually gave me a body flashback. Well done, fake one,” McGowan tweeted. “Alyssa, maybe you and Georgina can call up Camille Cosby.”
Meanwhile, Milano has her own huge problems:
Harvey Weinstein’s abuse of power was apparently an “open secret” for decades, but no one spoke out for fear he’d ruin their careers. Weinstein, a Democratic mega-donor, was also pals with Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Chuck Schumer.
This conspiracy of silence spotlights the hypocrisy of many liberals, who pay lip service to “women’s rights” but remained silent about the rampant sexual abuse of women (and boys) in Hollywood.
In October 2017, NBC News reporter Ronan Farrow said NBC refused to run his story about accused rapist Weinstein even though he had audio tape of the film mogul harassing a woman.
When asked why NBC refused to run his story, Farrow shrugged: “You’d have to ask NBC.” A month later, NBC fired Matt Lauer for sexual harassment and assault.
