Actress Meryl Streep gave a speech at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards in which she shared her honest opinion on President-elect Donald Trump without ever mentioning his name.
Mediaite.com reported that as Streep accepted her lifetime achievement award, Streep lambasted Trump and defended Hollywood, immigrants and the media.
“Who are we? And What is Hollywood anyway?” she asked in a slightly hoarse voice. “It’s just a bunch of people from other places. I was born and raised and educated in the public schools of New Jersey. Viola (Davis) was born in a share-croppers cabin in South Carolina.”
She mentioned many other star performers who come from diverse backgrounds before saying, “Where are their birth certificates?”
She continued, “If you kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch except for football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.”
