I'm fine with celebs expressing their opinions n alla that but if you're going to use a sodding awards ceremony to get your point across you should at least add something new instead of dragging the tone down for no real gain.
Ah yes another rich Hollywood luvvie who reads lines off a script for a living whilst making millions and living in Beverly hills whos opinion I'm supposed to give a shite about. As if the attention from winning a golden globe wasn't enough, she had to jump on the bandwagon with the rest of the illuminati in Hollywood and hurl criticism towards Trump. A champagne socialist telling us plebs they have the moral high ground - what's new
I haven't watched it because I don't care what she thinks.
It completely unprofessional to use your position to make political points. It is unacceptable in nearly all lines of work.
Its embarrassing. Just stick to acting. Why does her opinion matter any more than the next persons?
Oh look, another celebrity criticising Trump. It's becoming cliché. What hasn't already been said? We get it; he's a bigot, he's racist, he's sexist, he's going to tear the country apart... We've heard it a million times already from these virtue signalling celebs. Don't care anymore. He won. It's over. Move on.
Personally, I don't have any issues with Meryl Streep using the Golden Globes to make statements about Trump. It was her intention to use the Globes as a platform to reach millions of viewers and express her opinions in a dignified manner. This is no different from people who use Twitter and other social media to make political statements and impact their followers. The main difference is that Streep is wealthy, successful and influential so she can reach a wider audience than most. There's nothing wrong with wanting to do that if you have the means and ability to do so.
We live in a democracy, which means that people are entitled to express their left or right-wing views publicly, as long as it's done respectfully and intelligently. Just because Streep is a lot more successful than most does not mean that she should be denied her rights. She's a human being and American citizen first and foremost.
And just because Trump has been voted President does not mean that his critics should shut up, deal with it and move on. He is by no means above criticism and he hasn't even had his inauguration yet, so understandably people are still going to have a LOT to say about him, celebrities included. The whole Trump as President is a hugely contentious issue and it's going to be a big issue for a very long time. So, I really feel that some people on this site need to be more realistic and cut some of the Trump-detractors a bit of slack.
I agree she is an amazing actress and while that wasn't the time or place to voice her opinion I think trumps response was outrages.
