Wannabe activist actresses are at each others’ throats over Golden Globes black dress protest

Internet activism has TV actresses at each others’ throats.

Tamblyn rebuked McGowan, who censured stars who say they’ll wear black to the event and suggested they instead wear Marchesa, a brand created by Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman.

“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 wrote on Twitter. “Telling us to all wear Marchesa? This is beneath you, Rose.”

Tamblyn blasted McGowan for attacking fellow women trying to promote “change.”

Tamblyn accused McGowan of taking “below the belt shots” at the celebrities protesting widespread sexual assault and harassment allegations in the entertainment industry.

Italian actress Asian Argento defended McGowan, telling Tamblyn she should have expressed her concerns privately–not on social media.

Tamblyn replied, asserting that she had spoken with McGowan in private.

Holly Marie Combs, who starred on the TV series “Charmed” along with McGowan and Tamblyn, also spoke out.

Tamblyn replied to the charge of hypocrisy by saying that McGowan’s public message called for a public response.

A fourth “Charmed” actress, Alyssa Milano, then stepped in to calm the situation.

McGowan had originally tweeted that she despised the “hypocrisy” of the women who will wear black at the Golden Globes, including Meryl Streep.

“Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest,” McGowan wrote on Saturday. “YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy.”

The tense political climate has placed even long-time friendships on the edge.
