After an impressive introduction by her Doubt co-star Viola Davis, Meryl Streep’s searing anti-Trump speech during the Golden Globes was met with a standing ovation and much acclaim. Despite the president-elect’s unsurprising dismissive response, Streep devotees both in and out of Hollywood praised her powerful anti-bullying stance. “Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence,” Streep said, accepting the Globes’ career achievement award. “When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.” Below, some of the best pro-Meryl messages:
