Meryl Streep Targeted with "She Knew" Posters in Los Angeles

Meryl Streep Targeted with "She Knew" Posters in Los Angeles
In the wake of the sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Meryl Streep has attempted to distance herself from the disgraced producer. Despite their names being linked through a number of films, Streep maintains that "I didn't know" about his behaviour — but an anonymous art project in Los Angeles begs to differ.
 
As The Hollywood Reporter notes, several posters have gone up in Los Angeles that feature a photo of Weinstein and Streep with a Barbara Kruger-esque text strip proclaiming: "She knew" across Streep's face.
 
The posters have been spotted near Streep's home in Pasadena, as well as near the SAG-AFRA building and the 20th Century Fox lot.
 
As previously reported, Streep issued a lengthy statement following Rose McGowan's criticism of actresses' planned silent protest to wear black to the Golden Globes.
 
"It hurt to be attacked by Rose McGowan in banner headlines this weekend, but I want to let her know I did not know about Weinstein's crimes, not in the '90s when he attacked her, or through subsequent decades when he proceeded to attack others," Streep said. "I wasn't deliberately silent. I didn't know. I don't tacitly approve of rape. I didn't know. I don't like young women being assaulted. I didn't know this was happening."
 
Twitter's reaction to the posters has been mixed, with some maintaining that Streep must have known about Weinstein's behaviour over previous decades, while others are criticizing the artistic statement for placing blame on Streep rather than Weinstein himself.
