Rose McGowan recently accused Meryl Streep of hypocrisy for having worked with Harvey Weinstein, implying that she knew about his alleged crimes and behaviour.  She also condemned Streep’s decision to wear black to the Golden Globes 2018 in silent protest against sexual harassment. 

Now, Streep has responded to Rose. In a lengthy statement written to the Huffington Post, Meryl mentions, “It hurt to be attacked by Rose McGowan in banner headlines this weekend, but I want to let her know I did not know about Weinstein’s crimes, not in the 90s when he attacked her, or through subsequent decades when he proceeded to attack others. I wasn’t deliberately silent. I didn’t know. I don’t tacitly approve of rape. I didn’t know. I don’t like young women being assaulted. I didn’t know this was happening.”

 

A part of the post also says, “Rose assumed and broadcast something untrue about me, and I wanted to let her know the truth. Through friends who know her, I got my home phone number to her the minute I read the headlines. I sat by that phone all day yesterday and this morning, hoping to express both my deep respect for her and others’ bravery in exposing the monsters among us, and my sympathy for the untold, ongoing pain she suffers.”
