President-elect Donald Trump did not take too long before responding to Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech.

Actress Meryl Streep was awarded the Cecil B. Demille award for lifetime achievement at the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California.

“There was one performance this year that stunned me — it sank its hooks in my heart,” Ms. Streep said. “Not because it was good; there was nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh, and show their teeth. It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head, because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life.”

“This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” she said in her remarks. “Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose.”

While Twitter was predicting what kind of response Trump would come up with he didn’t disappoint. He took to Twitter and called Streep “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood” and further labeled her a “Hillary flunky who lost big.”

Trump, again, denied mocking the disabled reporter.
