Meryl Streep hits out at Donald Trump
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.
