Rose McGowan has been slammed by her close friend Amber Tamblyn for suggesting that the women who want to take part in a silent protest at the Golden Globes should all wear Marchesa.

‘Telling us to all wear Marchesa? This is beneath you, Rose,’ tweeted Amber on Sunday, in response to Rose’s outburst on social media.

‘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,’ said Amber.

‘You don’t have to support and stand with us, but we stand and support you. You may take below the belt shots at us but we will not take them at you in return. Our movement is big. And a black dress is just the beginning of the darkness that will be drained from every industry across the country by the time we’re done. That’s a promise.’

And we stand together in this fight, shoulder to shoulder, weapon to weapon, woman to woman (and man), body to burned body. And our arms are open. And our hearts two fold. And our fire will be a universal scorch. Heed the mantra: #ChangeIsComing

It was claimed on Thursday by The Morning Breath show hosts Jackie Oshry and Claudia Oshry that ‘of the female actresses and attendees, or most of them at least, are standing in solidarity together in a form of protest’ and that they plan to wear black ‘to protest the injustices that have been taking place in Hollywood since forever’.

McGowan, however, who has been an outspoken critic of many who she believes continue to play a role in the problems within Hollywood, took to Twitter on Saturday to criticise the actresses planning their silent protest.

‘Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest,’ she tweeted; the Pig Monster is a reference to Harvey Weinstein.

‘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.’

Marchesa is the fashion label designed by Georgina Chapman, who was married to Weinstein; since the allegations over his decades-long harassment and assault of women emerged, she has filed for divorce.

It is not known if Streep planned to take part in the Globes protest.

Rose has now deleted the tweet.
