  • Meryl Streep targeted with 'She Knew' street art following Weinstein comments

Actor T.J. Miller is accused of assault, a former Harvey Weinstein employee breaks her 19-year silence and posters pop up accusing actress Meryl Streep of not doing anything about Weinstein's alleged sexual misdeeds.

It is now unknown who is responsible for the posters, which surfaced a day after Streep issued a statement in which she denied knowing of Weinstein's alleged misconduct. They were placed around L.A. on Wednesday, a day after Streep's statement, near her Pasadena home, the SAG-AFTRA building in Mid-Wilshire and across the street from the 20th Century Fox studio in Century city.

The posters, styled after the famous works of artist Barbara Kruger, showed Mr. Weinstein and Ms. Streep laughing with a red and white banner declaring, "She knew", covering the actress' eyes. "I had a tremendous amount of self-blame until those women came forward and were published", she said. I don't know if he attended therapy or not.

Ms Perkins, then in her early 20s, wanted to expose his behaviour, but lawyers advised that she "didn't have a chance".

She also criticised Streep for working with the producer and affecting "no real change", saying "I despise your hypocrisy". While some are supportive of the art, others believe that focusing attention towards Meryl Streep is not going to help the cause and is misdirected energy that could be used to solve the problem.

Streep has released a statement saying she "did not know about Weinstein's crimes". "Maybe you should all wear Marchesa".

It was a response to tweets from actress Rose McGowan, who has been very vocal in criticizing both Streep and other women who meant to wear black to the Golden Globes as a kind of silent protest of sexual misconduct in the movie industry.

Supporters of Streep-including her onetime co-star Cher-argue that McGowan is focusing on the wrong villain. And I hoped that she would give me a hearing.

HW needed us not to know this, because our association with him bought him credibility, an ability to lure young, aspiring women into circumstances where they would be hurt. McGowan reached a settlement with Weinstein in 2007 and later said that he had raped her, according to USA Today.

Weinstein, though representatives, has repeatedly denied nonconsensual sexual encounters.

Joining McGowan in the video are other Weinstein accusers, as well as women who toppled Louis C.K. for years of harassment.
