Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Amber Tamblyn is calling out Rose McGowan for "shaming" Meryl Streep and other Hollywood actresses.

The 34-year-old actress criticized McGowan in a series of tweets Sunday after the Charmed alum derided Streep and other unnamed stars for their planned "silent protest" at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards.

"Rose McGowan is a friend and while I support her kind of movement, I do not support any woman (or man) shaming or taunting the movements of other women who are trying to create change," Tamblyn wrote.

McGowan had slammed Streep in a tweet Saturday following reports the 68-year-old star and other actresses will wear black to the Golden Globes as a show of solidarity in the wake of sexual harassment and abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein and other Hollywood players.

"Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest," McGowan, who accused Weinstein of rape in October, wrote.

"YOUR SILENCE is THE PROBLEM. You'll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa," she added, referencing the label designed by Weinstein's estranged wife Georgina Chapman.

Tamblyn said McGowan's comment about Marchesa was "beneath" the actress and defended the planned protest in subsequent tweets.

"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," she wrote.

"Our movement is big. And a black dress is just the beginning of the darkness that will be drained from every industry around the country by the time we're done. That's a promise," the star added.

Tamblyn later qualified her posts after McGowan's former Charmed co-star Holly Marie Combs came to her defense. Tamblyn said she loves McGowan "fiercely" and that "to be critical of an action is not to condemn the person behind it."
