In posters near the 20th Century Fox studio lot, the actors' union headquarters, and her home, Meryl Streep is accused of allowing Harvey Weinstein to allegedly prey on women for decades, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The posters feature a picture of Streep with Weinstein; a red bar across Streep's face reads "She Knew." CBS News reports it's unclear who is behind the posters, which went up in various locations around Los Angeles on Tuesday.

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." (More Meryl Streep stories.)
