Meryl Streep accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award and, without actually naming names, used her time on stage to share her opinions about President-elect Donald Trump. Perhaps unsurprisingly, her speech received an overwhelming positive response from celebrities on Twitter. On the list: Ellen DeGeneres, who tweeted, "There has never been anyone like Meryl Streep. I love her." Debra Messing, meanwhile, called Streep a "hero" for "defending the disabled, journalism and decency." As for Mia Farrow, well, she simply let Streep's words speak for themselves, writing, "Disrespect invites disrespect, violence invites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose."
And perhaps unsurprisingly, Donald Trump couldn't let Streep's speech go without one of his signature twitter rants, during which he referred to the three-time Oscar winner as "one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood" and a "Hillary flunky who lost big." Trump's right-hand woman, Kellyanne Conway, also took to Twitter to retweet a morning-show appearance on Fox News during which she called out Streep for not mentioning the beating of a disabled white teen in Chicago by four African American young people.
