Posters Accuse Meryl Streep of Covering for Weinstein

"I didn't know", Streep responded, per CNN. "Not everybody knew. Harvey supported the work fiercely, was exasperating but respectful with me in our working relationship, and with many others with whom he worked professionally". I didn't know about these other offenses: I did not know about his financial settlements with actresses and colleagues; I did not know about his having meetings in his hotel room, his bathroom, or other inappropriate, coercive acts.

McGowan stated that many men in Hollywood knew of Weinstein's actions against woman but did nothing about it.

On Tuesday, posters of Meryl Streep began to pop up around Los Angeles, asserting that the Oscar-winning actress "knew" Harvey Weinstein was allegedly assaulting women.

When a panelist asked McGowan if she believed change is actually happening, the former actress emphatically said, "Yes".

Meryl Streep attends "The Post" Washington, DC premiere on December 14, 2017. Since then, McGowan has gone scorched earth on Weinstein and other men accused of predatory behavior, as well as their enablers and anyone else who she doesn't feel is adequately contributing to the cause. "It wasn't secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things".

The Abbey Inn is described as having "fourteen king rooms or suites, where modern detail meets romantic sophistication". The Abbey Inn reportedly had a policy stating that they would essentially fine people for negative complaints.

So maybe at this point, you're thinking: Who cares? The actress' Twitter was shut down temporarily and she faced backlash for her criticism of certain actresses that will wear black at the 2018 Golden Globes. "Through friends who know her, I got my home phone number to her the minute I read the headlines". She is the grand lady of Hollywood and someone who, not unlike Harvey Weinstein, wears her progressive politics on her sleeve.

"I understand that non-disclosure agreements have a place in society for both sides, but it's really important that legislation is changed around how these agreements are regulated", she told BBC Newsnight.

The Oscar victor has denied that she was aware of his alleged sexual misconduct. "I would challenge the media to stop using the world 'alleged.' Stop it. Stop it", McGowan directed towards the camera. She was never "the First Lady of Miramax" like Gwyneth Paltrow, who bravely spoke up to help bring Weinstein down, and there is no demand for her to explain how she was so close to the nucleus of abuse without ever knowing.

The Weinstein scandal has also fueled other sexual harassment cases inside Hollywood and has encouraged victims to speak out, both males and females.
