Someone in Los Angeles doesn’t believe that Meryl Streep didn’t know what was going on with Harvey Weinstein, as the actress is now being targeted by street signs that read “She knew.”
Posters of Streep with a red and white “She knew” banner — a play on the style made famous by artist Barbara Kruger — over her eyes went up around Los Angeles on Tuesday near the SAG-AFTRA building, Hollywood and Highland complex and in Pasadena near Streep’s home.
Whoever is responsible for the signage remains unknown.
The posters came after Rose McGowan called out Streep for allegedly knowing what was going on with Weinstein. The Oscar-winning actress addressed McGowan’s allegations directly and unequivocally denied her accusations.
“It hurt to be attacked by [McGowan] … but I want to let her know I did not know about Weinstein’s crimes, not in the ’90s when he attacked her, or through subsequent decades when he proceeded to attack others,” Streep’s statement to Page Six read. “I wasn’t deliberately silent. I didn’t know. I don’t tacitly approve of rape … I don’t like young women being assaulted. I didn’t know this was happening.”
