Stop Treating Meryl Streep Like An Enemy Of #MeToo

Meryl Streep defended herself after Rose Mc Gowan criticized her in a tweet Saturday

Meryl Streep defended herself after Rose Mc Gowan criticized her in a tweet Saturday

The posters, which appeared overnight in Los Angeles, are apparently reference to the claim that Streep knew about Weinstein's alleged abuse and did not speak out.

Over 80 women have accused Weinstein of sexual assault and harassment.

It is now unknown who is responsible for the posters, which surfaced a day after Streep issued a statement in which she denied knowing of Weinstein's alleged misconduct. The three posters were placed near Streep's Pasadena home, the SAG-AFTRA building, and the 20th Century Fox studio lot.

Streep responded to McGowan's accusations earlier this week, claiming she "wasn't deliberately silent".

The posters follow McGowan's tweets this weekend calling out Streep for her professional relationship with Weinstein, and imply the Oscar-winner actress knew about Weinstein's alleged predatory behavior.

She continued, "I didn't know about these other offences: I did not know about his financial settlements with actresses and colleagues; I did not know about his having meetings in his hotel room, his bathroom, or other inappropriate, coercive acts". I didn't know. I don't tacitly approve of rape.

She also criticised Streep for working with the producer and affecting "no real change", saying "I despise your hypocrisy".

Actress Rose McGowan, who has accused Weinstein of rape, recently slammed Streep's support of actresses wearing black at the Golden Globe Awards in January to protest sexual harassment. "Maybe you should all wear Marchesa".

The graphic black and white design, imitating the style of artist Barbara Kruger, feature a red banner, with the words "She Knew", across Streep's eyes.

She added that Weinstein "needed me much more than I needed him and he made sure I didn't know".

Like many other accusers, Perkins said Weinstein would ask for massages or request that she be present while he bathed. Whoever is responsible, though, must have either intentionally missed Meryl Streep's measured response to McGowan, or chose to ignore it. In recent weeks, she has taken to social media to accuse Ben Affleck, Amber Tamblyn and Meryl Streep of being complicit.

Weinstein, though representatives, has repeatedly denied nonconsensual sexual encounters.

Not to mention enough men have shown themselves to be repeatedly suffering from foot-in-the-mouth-itis that I find myself unable to feel that it is fair to have women be held to a higher standard than the men.
