At The Massachusetts Conference for Women on Thursday, actress Meryl Streep spoke about the shocking number of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein, calling the former producer’s alleged actions “the most gargantuan example of disrespect.”
Streep’s rather light condemnation didn’t sit well with actress Rose McGowen, who tweeted the following Friday:
In October, McGowen claimed that Weinstein raped her in 1997. According to The New York Times, legal documents show that Weinstein “reached a previously undisclosed settlement with Rose McGowan” in 1997 “after an episode in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival.” In order to sidestep further legal action, Weinstein allegedly settled for $100,000 — though the settlement was “not to be construed as an admission.”
Streep has not replied to McGowan’s tweet as of publication.
