Meryl Streep hits out at Don­ald Trump

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - WOMEN WE ADMIRE -

When you’re Meryl Streep, you can say what you like and she did just that at the Golden Globes. Meryl spoke in de­fence of diver­sity and free­dom of the press, and crit­i­cised US Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump: “Dis­re­spect in­vites dis­re­spect; vi­o­lence in­cites vi­o­lence.” Trump’s re­sponse was swift and pre­dictably on Twit­ter: Meryl was “over­rated”. A Twit­ter storm en­sued, with her ad­mir­ers de­fend­ing her out­spo­ken­ness and her award for life­time achieve­ment.
