Read To Know; Donald Trump Slammed In Golden Globes 2017 Speech By Meryl Streep
The 67 Years Old Mary Louise “Meryl” Streep is an American actress and singer. Meryl Streep received the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes on Sunday night. She strongly criticised US President-elect Donald Trump without naming him.
she used almost the entire speech to attack his behaviour and policies. The three-time Oscar-winning actress said his actions legitimised bullying.
“Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners, and if you kick us all out, you’ll have nothing to watch except for football and mixed martial arts, which are not arts,” she said, tearfully and with a faint voice. Streep said she was “stunned” during the presidential election campaign when the Republican candidate imitated disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski.
The audience cheered when Streep reviewed the background of many of her colleagues, saying: “Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners.”But who are we, and what is Hollywood anyway? It’s just a bunch of people from other places,” she explained, outlining her New Jersey upbringing, plus the non-Los Angeles backgrounds of Sarah Paulson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Ruth Negga, Viola Davis, Dev Patel and Ryan Reynolds. “Where are their birth certificates?
“There was nothing good about it, but it did its job,” she said. “It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out my head because it wasn’t in a movie, it was in real life. That instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone’s life because it gives permission for others to do the same.””Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence,” she continued. After calling for the press to stand up to Trump, Streep concluded her speech by quoting Carrie Fisher: “Take your broken heart, make it into art.”
