Earlier this month, reports emerged stating actresses attending the Golden Globes will wear all-black clothing to protest sexual harassment in Hollywood and highlight gender inequality.

Sources at one publication stated high-profile names such as Jessica Chastain, Meryl Streep, and Emma Stone would all participate.

Rose McGowan has since spoken out against the protest, singling out Streep on Twitter and referencing alleged sexual assaulter Harvey Weinstein.

"Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black Golden Globes in a silent protest,” she wrote.

“YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly and affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.”

The womenswear company Marchesa was co-created by Georgina Chapman, the ex-wife of Weinstein, while the “Pig Monster” jab would seemingly be an attack on the producer.

McGowan alleged back in October that Weinstein had raper her (accusations the disgraced mogul denies). Since she came forward, McGowan has used her platform to share stories by other women, and call out other men accused of sexual harassment and assault.

The activist has previously called out Streep on Twitter. In response to the esteemed actor’s comments calling Weinstein’s actions "the most gargantuan example of disrespect”, McGowan wrote: “No, Meryl, IT’S A FUCKING CRIME. You are such a lie.”

The Golden Globes take place on the 7 January.
