Amber Tamblyn on McGowan's criticism of black gown protest

Amber Tamblyn took to Twitter Sunday to respond to Rose McGowan's criticism of a plan by some actresses to wear black to the Golden Globes next month in protest at sexual harassment in the industry.

McGowan, who has led the charge against Harvey Weinstein, claiming the producer raped her in 1997, described the move as a meaningless 'dog and pony show' and in a parting shot, suggested the actresses all wear Marchesa, the brand of Weinstein's wife Georgina Chapman.

But Tamblyn called the former Charmed star out for her Twitter comments, tweeting: 'I do not support any woman (or man) shaming or taunting the movements of other women who are trying to create change. Telling us to all wear Marchesa? This is beneath you, Rose.'

'They're trying to create change': The former Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants star said McGowan was wrong to attack the 'black gown' movement just because she didn't empathize with it

Stressing that she considered McGowan a friend, Tamblyn addressed her fellow actress, tweeting: '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.'

Tamblyn felt the need to respond after McGowan made her feelings about the Golden Globes protest known on Saturday.

Weinstein's accuser wrote: 'Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem.'

'You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy,' McGowan added.
