On Friday, it was reported that a number of Hollywood actresses would take part in a silent protest honouring the many women who have been affected by sexual misconduct, many at the hands of disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.

Earlier in the week, news broke that many big-name actresses, including Meryl Streep, Emma Stone, and Jessica Chastain, are planning to wear black to the 2018 Golden Globes, which are coming up at the beginning of January.

The 44-year-old Charmed star slammed Streep on Twitter, claiming that her involvement in such a protest is hypocritical. You'll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change.

"I despise your hypocrisy", she continued bitingly.

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", Streep said in her statement.

Although McGowan called out Streep, she hasn't confirmed if she plans to participate in any such protest. The Marchesa jab refers to Harvey Weinstein's ex-wife Georgina Chapman, who co-created the brand. I'm not talking. You gotta tune in, don't ya?'

The bold statement came out days after a source told that 'all female actresses attending the Globes are protesting by just wearing black gowns'.

In a statement released in October, Streep said: "The disgraceful news about Harvey Weinstein has appalled those of us whose work he championed, and those whose good and worthy causes he supported".

The "silent protest" is meant to be aimed at the culture of sexual assault in Hollywood and is to be worn as a show of solidarity with the victims. "The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar".

'Each courageous voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game, ' Streep said.

In a statement to ABC News, Weinstein denied any allegations of non-consensual sex.
