Trump goes after Meryl Streep following Golden Globes speech
Meryl Streep at a ceremony for the unveiling of the star for actor Viola Davis on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood, California, on Thursday. REUTERS/Mario Anzuoni President-elect Donald Trump sent out a screed of tweets against actress Meryl Streep on Monday morning.
"Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes," Trump wrote.
Streep was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award on Sunday night, and she used her speech to go after Trump for mocking a disabled New York Times reporter during the campaign.
"It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can't get it out of my head, because it wasn't in a movie," Streep said. "It was real life. And this instinct to humiliate, when it's modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody's life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing. Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose."
Trump spoke with The New York Times early Monday morning, before viewing Streep's speech, and told the paper "he was 'not surprised' that he had come under attack from 'liberal movie people.'"
In his tweets, Trump said Streep was "a Hillary flunky who lost big" and maintained that he never "'mocked' a disabled reporter."
Streep is among the most decorated actors of all time, winning three Academy Awards and eight Golden Globes. She was also an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter, speaking at the 2019 Democratic National Convention.
