Golden Globes 2017: “Disrespect invites disrespect”, says Meryl Streep as she Criticises Donald Trump in Speech

Meryl Streep is awarded the Cecil B DeMille award of the night – she used her acceptance speech to raise awareness on recent Donald Trump antics.

She began the call out, “When a person asked to sit in the most respected seat in our country, imitated a disabled reporter” – referring to Donald Trump mocking a disabled person, Guardian reports – “… it filters down into everybody’s life cause it kinda gives permission for everybody to do the same thing.”

The crowd grew to support the speech as there was initial silence from being obviously stunned.
