Los Angeles- Meryl Streep took the chance to criticize U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, after receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement.


“Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners and if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts,” she said.

Concluding her speech, Streep recalled what was once said to her “Take your broken heart, make it into art.”

Streep wasn’t the only one to criticize the deportation policy adopted by Trump. In his turn, Trump tweeted commenting on her “”Hillary lover”.

Streep described how much Hollywood is mixed in the meantime, more than ever. She highlighted how the city housed people of various ethics despite the diversity of political beliefs.
