The appearance of the posters follows allegations made against Streep by Rose McGowan over the weekend. McGowan, who says Weinstein raped her, claims Streep knew about Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct and did nothing. McGowan called Streep a hypocrite over reports Streep plans to wear black to the Golden Globes in support of sexual assault victims, USA Today reports. In a statement Tuesday, Streep says she "did not know about Weinstein's crimes" and "wasn't deliberately silent." (Read more Meryl Streep stories.)
