Acclaimed Hollywood actress Meryl Streep received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes for her exceptional contribution to the entertainment industry.
This is what the Hollywood legend, had to say during her acceptance speech,
“This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone on the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kinda gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” she said. “Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”
The powerful speech ignited a social media buzz and Streep garnered support from all over the world, admiring the courage to speak her heart out against the Political leader, Donald J. Trump and the way he had misbehaved and imitated a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015. Ms.Streep campaigned for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 elections.
Our very own Lollywood stars also took to Instagram and Twitter to show their support to the Power woman!
Here’s what they posted!
And in Davi's introduction for #merylstreep – "I haven’t said anything. But I’m gonna say it now. You make me proud to be an artist. You make me feel that what I have in me, my body, my face, my age, is enough. You encapsulate that great Émile Zola quote that if you ask me as an artist what I came into this world to do, I an artist would say, I came to live out loud". ⚡️ Live. Out. Loud.
Popular B-town Celebs also applauded Streep

Many things in Hollywood are "over-rated" – Meryl Streep's acting isn't one of them.

But then again, there were those who thought otherwise
This Meryl Streep speech is why Trump won. And if people in Hollywood don't start recognizing why and how – you will help him get re-elected
