“Actresses, such as Meryl Streep, who happily worked The Pig Monster, wear black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest,” McGowan said in a now-deleted tweet. “YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You will accept a fake award breathless & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa,” the fashion line of Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman.

Mark said that they “hurt to be attacked” by McGowan, who has been vocal about Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct. The actress said that she did not know about Weinstein’s alleged attack on McGowan in the years ’90.

Mark explained that her relationship with Weinstein over the years was strictly business and that he had never approached or bothered her.

“HW was not a filmmaker; he was often a producer, in the first place a marketer of films that are made by other people–some great, some not great,” she said.

“But not every actor, actress and director of films that HW disseminated knew he abused women, or that he raped Rose in the years’ 90, the other women before and the other after, until they told us. We did not know that womens’ silence was bought by him and his enablers,” Stripe added.
