In a deleted tweet, Rose expressed her anger over the move. She also named Meryl Streep among all the actresses and said, “YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.”
Rose has been the most outspoken woman against Weinstein, as well as men like Ben Affleck and Matt Damon who allegedly knew about his actions. Meanwhile, Meryl also denounced Weinstein back in October and emphasized that “not everybody knew” about his abusive ways. “The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar. Each brave voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game,” she said in a statement.
The silent protest at the Golden Globes is just one of many ways that women would speak out against sexual abuse and other inappropriate acts. Although it’s not as straightforward as the #MeToo movement, it can still be a powerful statement nonetheless.
What do you think? Did Rose step a line in calling the actresses hypocrites, or did she make a point that women shouldn’t be silent?
