Brave Or Disrespectful? Twitter Explodes Over Meryl Streep’s Anti-Trump Speech At The Golden Globes.
Meryl Streep stunned and touched the Golden Globes audience when she managed to deeply criticize – without ever naming – President-elect Donald Trump.
After being honored with a Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, the legendary actress gave a speech that touched upon three of the contentious presidential election’s touchstones: immigration, the media, and the bullying tactics many felt Trump employed throughout the campaign, especially when he was accused of mocking a disabled reporter.

Trump’s favorite communication platform, Twitter, exploded – with some celebrating Streep’s speech, but others condemning it as being the exact sort of condescending attitude from the ‘elites’ that got Trump elected.
Many A-list stars applauded Streep, with some describing her speech as ‘brave’.
Ellen DeGeneres tweeted: ‘There has never been anyone like Meryl Streep. I love her’.
Bette Middler also voiced her support, writing: ‘Thank God for Meryl Streep, who spoke truth to Power at the Golden Globes tonight calling out He Who Must Be Worshiped, w/o saying his name.’
