Posters accusing Meryl Streep of being complicit with Weinstein mysteriously appear around Los Angeles

Posters of Meryl Streep standing next to Harvey Weinstein with the words “She knew” emblazoned across her face surfaced around Los Angeles on Tuesday. It’s unclear who was responsible for the posters. People walking around the streets of L.A. who spoke with the local CBS affiliate were taken aback by the posters. Some thought the posters are shocking and making a “very strong accusation.” One woman said, “I think public art is great,” but added, “I don’t know if this really adds anything to the conversation — or subtracts anything.”


On Monday, Streep had issued a statement in response to accusations of hypocrisy from Weinstein victim Rose McGowan, in which the Oscar-winner reiterated that she hadn’t known about Weinstein’s abuse of women.

 

“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,” wrote Streep. “Rose assumed and broadcast something untrue about me, and I wanted to let her know the truth.”

 

McGowan has since apologized for her remarks, in which she suggested that Streep and other actresses who she believed knew about Weinstein’s behavior should wear Marchesa (a fashion line belonging to Georgina Chapman, Weinstein’s now-estranged wife) instead of black dresses for their planned silent protest at the upcoming Golden Globes award show.
