Rose McGowan Sounds Off on Hollywood Actresses for "Silent Protest"

EXCLUSIVE: Meryl Streep Speaks Out Against Harvey Weinstein

EXCLUSIVE: Meryl Streep Speaks Out Against Harvey Weinstein

As previously reported, many A-list actresses are possibly planning to dress in all-black to the upcoming Golden Globe awards in a show of solidarity for victims of sexual harassment and as a silent protest against the entertainment industry's many predators. This seems like a move that the former Charmed star would support, but shockingly, she's not on board. You'll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change.

"I despise your hypocrisy", she continued bitingly. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa. "YOUR SILENCE is THE problem", McGowan wrote, referring to Harvey Weinstein, who she says raped her in 1997. Women including Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, and Jessica Chastain are rumored to be participating in this protest, although Rose McGowan thinks the all-black message is nothing more than a stupid little stunt.

A sources said: "All female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns". McGowan's attack is certainly unexpected and considering her voice has been dominant when it comes to the fight against sexual misconduct, this is a speed bump in the ongoing movement that encourages unity.

Streep, for her part, has issued no comment. You gotta tune in, don't ya?

Streep spoke out against Weinstein when the first allegations of assault surfaced, writing in a statement that the "women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes", according toPeople.

"My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions", Chapman, who married Weinstein in 2007, said, according to E!

"The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar", she said, adding that "each fearless voice that is raised, heard and credited" in the media "will ultimately change the game".

'Each courageous voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game, ' Streep said.

In a statement to ABC News, Weinstein denied any allegations of non-consensual sex.
