The 44-year-old Charmed star slammed Streep on Twitter, claiming that her involvement in such a protest is hypocritical.

Rose McGowan isn't pleased with the idea that many of her fellow actresses in Hollywood are planning to wear black to the Golden Globes ceremony as a symbol to protest the sexual misconduct in Hollywood. Now, she's taken aim at a new target, calling out actress Meryl Streep for reportedly participating in a protest that is rumored to be taking place at the Golden Globes come January 7. You'll accept a fake award breathlessly and affect no real change. "I despise your hypocrisy".

Weinstein's wife Georgina Chapman co-founded Marchesa in 2004.

"Rose McGowan is a friend and while I support her kind of movement, I do not support any woman (or man) shaming or taunting the movements of other women who are trying to create change", Tamblyn tweeted Sunday.

Fiery words: McGowan said that Streep 'happily worked for The Pig Monster, ' referring to Weinstein, on multiple projects amid his decades of alleged sexual abuse.

McGowan specifically name-checked Meryl Streep, whom she also criticized on social media last week. When asked by Extra if she was planning to wear black, the 68-year-old actress didn't give an answer.

McGowan - who has accused Weinstein of raping her in the 1990s - has become one of the most outspoken celebrity figures in the scandal.

Since then more entertainment industry heavyweights such as director Brett Ratner, comedian Louis C.K. and actors including Dustin Hoffman, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Spacey and Jeffrey Tambor have been the subject of sexual misconduct allegations.

She 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 intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes".

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