Meryl Streep Criticizes Trump in the Golden Globe Awards Ceremony
Washington, Jan 9 (Prensa Latina) The multi-award-winning American actress Meryl Streep criticized US President-elect Donald Trump during her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. De Mille Award at the 74th Golden Globe Awards.
Streep, deserving of three Oscars and 19 nominations for the precious statuette, not to mention the name of the New York billionaire, spoke last night about the mockery that the then Republican presidential candidate did last November of the disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski .
'Not because it was good (Trump's performance), but because it was effective,' she said. 'It broke my heart when I saw it and I still can not get it out of my head because it was not in a movie; it was in real life '.
'When the instinct to humiliate is modeled by someone on a public platform,' he added, 'it infiltrates the lives of all because it grants permission to others to do the same.
Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence, and when the powerful use their position to intimidate others, we all lose, 'the actress said in a gesture of disapproval.
He insisted in his speech that the Americans need 'a press with principles for the powerful to respond'.
Streep echoed the speech shortly before by fellow actor Hugh Laurie, who joked that there would be no more Golden Globes if Trump kept up his political proposals.
'You and all of us in this room belong to the most vilified segments of society at this time. Think about it: Hollywood, foreigners and the press, 'Streep said.
After mentioning several actors who were born outside the United States, Streep said: 'Hollywood is crawling with foreigners and if we throw them all, you will have nothing to do but football and MMA.'
Meryl Streep's speech ended with a loud ovation offered by the standing audience.
