Stars like Meryl Streep and several other actresses are planning on wearing black to the Golden Globes this year to protest gender inequality and produce a silent protest that they hope will speak volumes at the award show, but Rose McGowan, for one, isn’t having any of it.
McGowan took to Twitter on Saturday evening and called out Streep by name, pointing out ‘hypocrisy’ and the fact that the gowns would ‘affect no real change’ in a biting tweet that… made some sense, if we’re being honest.
Here’s what McGowan wrote in full regarding Streep and ‘The Pig Monster’ Harvey Weinstein (below):
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├óΓé¼Γäóll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.

Strongly spoken from Rose, but she is kind of right — protest gestures can be important and powerful, but wearing black gowns at the Golden Globes isn’t going to move the needle on sexual misconduct as much as it’s going to raise awareness to the harassment… that has already been bravely and incredibly raised all across America by hundreds and hundreds (and thousands!) of women in all high-profile walks of life coming forward.
We’re in the midst of a sea change here. Black gowns are a nice gesture, but maybe we’re past that already, and we can move on to tangible actions?
Just a thought!!!
Of course, this isn’t the first time McGown has called out Streep, either (below):
No, Meryl, IT├óΓé¼ΓäóS A FUCKING CRIME. You are such a lie # ROSEARMY Meryl Streep on Harvey Weinstein allegations: It’s ‘the most gargantuan example of disrespect’ – USA TODAY https://t.co/3E2oiCauME
