Months ago, a major sex scandal rocked Hollywood when it was revealed that producer Harvey Weinstein is a sexual predator. The sad part was- almost everyone in Hollywood knew about it, but they said nothing.
Especially actress Meryl Streep who claimed that she did not know anything! She has been in Hollywood for over 30 years and didn’t know…Right, Meryl. Of course, you knew! Everyone in Hollywood knew.
In December, actress Rose McGowan publicly criticized Meryl Streep for continuing to work with Weinstein in spite of his reputation.
In a Twitter post, McGowan than wrote, “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’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real chance. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.”
Streep responded to the tweet in a statement.
“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,” Streep said in a statement following McGowan’s tweet. “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.”
But, now, hypocritical Meryl Streep attacked Melania and Ivanka Trump for not speaking more about Hollywood sex scandals. During a new interview with the New York Times, Streep said: “I found out about this on a Friday and went home deep into my own life. And then somebody told me that on “Morning Joe” they were screaming that I haven’t responded yet. I don’t have a Twitter thing or – handle, whatever. And I don’t have Facebook. I really had to think. Because it really underlined my own sense of cluelessness, and also how evil, deeply evil, and duplicitous, a person he was, yet such a champion of really great work.
You make movies. You think you know everything about everybody. So much gossip. You don’t know anything. People are so inscrutable on a certain level. And it’s a shock. Some of my favorite people have been brought down by this, and he’s not one of them.
She added: “I don’t want to hear about the silence of me. I want to hear about the silence of Melania Trump. I want to hear from her. She has so much that’s valuable to say. And so does Ivanka. I want her to speak now.
Hypocrite! Silent on Bill and Polanski and every other Hollywood predator that is useful to her career. This is the same person that gave standing ovations to Roman Polanski! She is silent on Bill and Polanski and every other Hollywood predator that is useful to her career.
It’s all about deflection. Her new movie is tanking at the box office, so drag out the soapbox to start pointing her finger elsewhere. Never will I watch another of her movies.
