Meyl Streep has responded to Rose McGowen's criticism of her perceived defence of Harvey Weinstein. 

'Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @goldenglobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem,' Rose tweeted, before deleting the tweet. 

'You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real chance. I despise your hypocrisy.' 

Rose is one of many women who allege that Weinstein raped her in the 90s. 

'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,' Meryl told The Huffington Post. 

'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.'

'HW was not a filmmaker; he was often a producer, primarily a marketer of films made by other people- some of them great, some not great.'

'But not every actor, actress, and director who made films that HW distributed knew he abused women, or that he raped Rose in the 90s, other women before and others after, until they told us.'

'We did not know that women’s silence was purchased by him and his enablers.'

Rose McGowan has taken to Twitter to hit out at fellow actress Meryl Streep, accusing her of playing down the allegations made against disgraced Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein. 

Rose, who was one of the first stars to come forward in the scandal, took issue with the way Meryl spoke about the situation after she branded it as "the most gargantuan example of disrespect," in a recent interview for USA Today

The actress felt that Meryl's choice of words did not accurately represent the severity of Weinstein's actions. 

"No, Meryl, IT’S A F***ING CRIME. You are such a lie # ROSEARMY Meryl Streep on Harvey Weinstein allegations: It's 'the most gargantuan example of disrespect' – USA TODAY," she wrote. 

Meryl is by no means the first female star to be criticised for not speaking up.

Rose previously slammed the women of Hollywood for not condemning his crimes, saying their "silence is defening." 

However, many of Rose's followers seem to think she may have jumped the gun on this one, with many encouraging the actress the re-read the article and check her sources.

An arrest warrant has been issued for actress Rose McGowan after items she left behind at Washing Dulles International Airport tested positive for narcotics.

According to reports, Washington Police say the warrant was obtained on February 1 of this year, and insist they have made efforts to reach out to the actress before now.

It's not clear when the actress became aware of the warrant, though some think the timing of the news is suspicious given that the actress was one of the leading voices in the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

Taking to Twitter, Rose suggested the warrant was an attempt to silence her.

“Are they trying to silence me?” she wrote on her page.

“There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia. What a load of HORSESH**.”

The actress is just one of 60 women in the film industry to accuse the producer of rape and sexual harassment.

Weinstein has unequivocally denied all allegations made against him, however, The New York Times recently reported that he made a $100,000 settlement to Rose in 1997, which included a clause against speaking about it publicly.

He is currently under investigation by both the Met and US police though no charges have yet been made.

The woman instrumental in exposing Hollywood's violent and misogynistic underbelly was banned from Twitter this week.

Rose McGowan, who used her Twitter account to contribute to the current narrative surrounding sexual violence in the movie industry, had it suspended in a move which has disgusted millions of women.

In support of the 44-year-old actress, women are encouraging one another to boycott the social media platform in response to Rose's suspension.

Taking to Instagram, Rose updated her followers, writing: "Twitter has suspended me. There are powerful forces at work. Be my voice".

While the actress has since been allowed to return to Twitter, that hasn't stopped high-profile figures from insisting they will not contribute to the platform today,

"Tomorrow (Friday the 13th) will be the first day in over 10 years that I won’t tweet. Join me," wrote Alyssa Milano, Rose's former co-star, in the wake of the controversy.

"Tomorrow. And maybe even forever. #WomenBoycottTwitter," added Chrissy Teigen. "No secret timeline checking, no tweets, no clicking the bluebird square. They need to see we matter."

"I'm boycotting for many reasons. To stand with the victims of sexual assault, online threats and abuse. And to boycott the fact our demented, pussy grabbing president can tweet nuclear threats of war I can't even see."

Will you be doing the same?

Accepting her trophy at the Glamour Woman of the Year Awards last week, Caitlyn Jenner got a warm round of laughs from the audience when she told them that the "hardest part about being a woman is figuring out what to wear."

But the transgender activist's speech didn't go down too well with some people, including actress Rose McGowan, who has already hit back at Caitlyn online for misrepresenting women.

"Caitlyn Jenner you do not understand what being a woman is about at all," she wrote on Facebook yesterday.

"We are more than deciding what to wear. We are more than the stereotypes foisted upon us by people like you.

"You're a woman now? Well f***ing learn that we have had a VERY different experience than your life of male privilege."

Speaking at the awards on Monday November 9, Caitlyn admitted that the types of questions she got from interviewers after her transition differed greatly from the topics she was asked about before.

"I got all these new questions from people, saying, 'What's your style? What are you going to wear? Who are your heroes? Are you a feminist?' All these questions and I said, 'Oh my gosh, I have so much to learn.'" she explained.

Taking issue with Caitlyn's speech, Rose continued: "Woman of the year? No, not until you wake up and join the fight.

"Being a woman comes with a lot of baggage. The weight of unequal history.

"You'd do well to learn it. You'd do well to wake up. Woman of the year? Not by a long f***ing shot."

Before deleting the post completely last night following backlash, Rose edited it to clarify her comments.

"Let me amend this by saying I'm happy for what she's doing visibility wise for the trans community, and I'm happy she's living her truth, but comments like hers have consequences for other women," she wrote.

Caitlyn Jenner has yet to respond via social media.

Actress Rose McGowan was left shaken after an unprovoked attack at a restaurant in New York over the weekend.

The Charmed star was dining at Bar Pitti, a favourite with celebs including Beyoncé and Jay-Z, when an unidentified man climbed out of a pavement grate and threw a red smoke bomb into the building. 

The suspect, described as a blond man in his thirties, reportedly fled after throwing the bomb and has yet to be apprehended by police. 

Luckily nobody was harmed,  even though the bomb landed directly on an outdoor table. Rose herself took to Twitter to express her shock:

Her fans were quick to respond, with messages like "Wow, hope you and everyone else there is okay." and "How are your eyes now? Take care!"

One onlooker at the restaurant described the incident as "pretty scary," saying "I saw something get thrown right into the front door and red smoke started pouring out. The waiters looked really shocked… People started panicking, but as it dispersed, some started taking pictures."

Actress Rose McGowan isn’t taking any cyber bullying lying down!

After lots of (very mean) followers commented on a photo of her on Instagram saying she looks like Michael Jackson, she hit back with a confusing reply: “Has anyone stopped to think that Michael Jackson used to be black, and tried to turn himself into a white, possibly Irish person with a cleft chin and a tiny nose? I was born Irish. So f*** off losers.”

Wait…what? Did she insult Irish people? We don’t even know.

Rose was then attacked once again for her comment about MJ but thankfully the issue seems to have died down now. 

Rough day in the Insta world for poor Rose!
