#SheKnew: Posters Around Los Angeles Denounce Meryl Streep As A Lying Fraud

In the future, Meryl Streep needs to be real careful about which movie mogul she refers to as “God” and which sexual predator she gives a standing ovation.

The backlash against the acclaimed actress’ blanket denial of ever knowing that her deity Harvey Weinstein led an openly secret life as Jabba the Hutt has come swift. On top of Weinstein victim Rose McGowan publicly denouncing Streep as a hypocrite over the weekend, street posters have been popping up around Los Angeles branding “The Post” star a lying fraud.

Take a look:

Though this appears to be the handiwork of the political street artist Sabo, the creator of the epic trollery has yet to be identified.

The street art appeared near the SAG-AFTRA building in L.A., as well as near Streep’s home in Pasadena. Major media outlets from Page Six to USA Today to CBS Local have all given the posters significant coverage.

Streep has yet to issue a comment.

Over the weekend, actress Rose McGowan blasted Streep on Twitter after news broke that she would be wearing black during the Golden Globes in honor of the #MeToo movement.

“Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa,” McGowan wrote Saturday in a now-deleted tweet.

Her “Marchesa” comment was in reference to Weinstein’s now-estranged wife Georgina Chapman’s fashion line.

Streep responded to McGowan shortly after through her publicist and doubled-down on her denial.

“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,” she said.

#SheKnew is just one of the many reasons to #BoycottMerylStreep.
