Rose McGowan brands Meryl Streep a hypocrite over Golden Globes 'silent protest'

At next month's Golden Globes, the red carpet will reportedly get much, much darker: A large group of actresses are set to dress entirely in black as a way of silently protesting harassment and assault in Hollywood.

The 44-year-old "Charmed" star made the comment following reports Thursday that numerous actresses who would be attending the 75th Annual award show in January were planning on wearing black as a sign of solidarity in protest of things like gender inequalities in Hollywood and sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.

'You'll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change, ' McGowan said, adding, 'I despise your hypocrisy'.

Streep, who worked with Weinstein on films such as August: Osage County, The Giver and The Iron Lady, compared Weinstein to God during an acceptance speech for the latter at the Golden Globes in 2012.

However, it isn't for sure that Meryl will wear black during the ceremony.

Rose McGowan has no time for the "hypocrisy" that she says will be on full display during the planned Golden Globes blackout. "I don't know", she replied. "YOUR SILENCE is THE problem", McGowan tweeted.

Streep had also said that Weinstein was "respectful" towards her while they were working on different projects, but "not everybody knew" about him sexually assaulting actresses. "I'm not talking. You gotta tune in, don't ya?" "You are such a lie", she wrote. "And If everybody knew, I don't believe that all the investigative reporters in the entertainment and the hard news media would have neglected for decades to write about it".

Shortly after the Weinstein scandal broke, Streep had said that those who raised their voices after experiencing the alleged terrifying sexual abuse at the hands of the producer are "our heroes".

"The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar", she continued.

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