Los Angeles Posters Claim Meryl Streep Knew About Harvey Weinstein Misconduct

When allegations against Harvey Weinstein first started to surface, Hollywood celebrities stepped up to call for action and to criticize the system for allowing this type of behavior. It now seems that someone is aware of Meryl Streep's complacency in regard to Weinstein's acts of sexual misconduct, or, at least, that's what posters being plastered throughout Los Angeles are implying.
Meryl Streep Is At The Heart Of A "She Knew" Campaign
Previously, Meryl Streep has come forward to criticize Harvey Weinstein and other sexual predators in Hollywood, denying that she knew anything about the illicit activities. If the posters featuring Streep are any indication, someone doesn't believe her denials. The posters show Meryl posing with Harvey at a 2012 film premiere with the pair smiling broadly. A red band, imprinted with "she knew" in white lettering, is plastered across Streep's eyes.
While the culprit is still unknown, the unnamed street artist has also added a QR code to the poster. The code takes users to a bitcoin address.
Accusations against Harvey Weinstein have been coming to light since October. Although the disgraced Hollywood mogul admitted acting inappropriately and publicly apologized for his actions, he denies forcing non-consensual sex on anyone. This was in response to several actresses, including Rose McGowen, accusing him of rape.
Rose McGowen Calls Out Meryl Streep
For the upcoming 2018 Golden Globes, a plan is underway for actresses to wear all black outfits in protest of sexual harassment. Meryl Streep, who will be attending, has shared her intention to participate in the silent protest. Actress Rose McGowen seems to find Streep's participation hypocritical, because she called out Meryl, a Golden Globe nominee, on Twitter.
"Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem," Ms. McGowen charged in her tweet. "You'll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy."
Ms. Streep has since responded to Rose's allegations, denying again that she knew anything about Weinstein's activities. She added that she doesn't approve of sexual assault in any form and had no idea it was such a widespread problem in Hollywood. Speaking specifically of Mr. Weinstein, Meryl said she had never been invited to his home or to his hotel room.
"I didn't know. I don't tacitly approve of rape," Meryl Streep said. "I didn't know. I don't like young women being assaulted. I didn't know this was happening."
