Actresses are reportedly planning to wear black to the 2018 Golden Globes as a sign of protest against sexual harassment -- but Rose McGowan is not here for it. 

The 44-year-old Charmed star, who was one of the first actresses to speak out with allegations against Harvey Weinsten (claims which he denies), took to Twitter on Saturday to slam those choosing to wear black at the awards show for their "silent protest." Though Meryl Streep, Jessica Chastain, Emma Stone and more are reportedly planning to participate in the red carpet trend, McGowan called out Streep specifically, and suggested that actresses should wear dresses by Weinstein's estranged wife's label, Marchesa, to the event instead. 

"Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem," McGowan tweeted. "You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa."

Streep worked with Weinstein and his production company for years over the course of her film career, but released a statement in October that she was unaware of the allegations against him until the first New York Times expose was published days earlier. 

"The disgraceful news about Harvey Weinstein has appalled those of us whose work he championed, and those whose good and worthy causes he supported," Streep said in a statement at the time. "The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes."

"The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar," she said. "Each brave voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game."
