…does Rose McGowan have an alibi??
Meryl Streep spent the last few days sitting by the phone waiting to hear a call from her second-favorite Charmed actress (sorry, Rose, Shannen Doherty will always be top of the hot mess heap!). Rose never called Meryl, but now we know what she could have been doing instead. A slew of posters have popped up around Los Angeles accusing Meryl of being a pupil at the Ivanka Trump Skewl of Complicit Hos.
The Hollywood Reporter says posters have appeared in several locations just in time to torpedo Meryl’s attempt at her 900th Oscar for her performance in The Post. Nothing sours the Academy Awards race like some print media finger-pointing. The posters went up sometime before sunrise Tuesday and show Meryl next to Harvey Weinstein, only Meryl’s eyes are covered by a rather scathing mask of Zorro emblazoned with the term “She Knew.” The posters were hung near Meryl’s home in Pasadena, by the SAG-AFTRA office, and across from the 20th Century Fox studio. Fox is the one producing The Post.

The posters come in the wake of Rose (and others) heavily pushing the argument that Meryl knew about Harvey’s beyond-horrible treatment of women. As you might remember, the Oscar-winner described his actions as “disrespect,” which Rose took umbrage with. Rose did not like that unless “disrespect” was a Meryl euphemism for crime, and she came for her again when she went off on the plan for actresses to wear black to all of the awards shows this year. She called Meryl’s sentiment fake and called into question how she happily worked under Harvey for all those years. Meryl later clapped back with a novella-length statement of denial and basically said Rose was chicken shit for hiding behind her Twitter and not dialing a bitch up to talk about it ear-to-ear (in so many words).
The street art and Rose might hurt Meryl’s chances of OSCAH, but I somehow think whenever they do manage to get a photo-op of them breaking bread and chatting about this like old BFFs, Meryl will land her fourth Oscar for pretending to forgive Rose for addressing her in sentences that don’t begin with “And the award goes to…”
