Besides her idiotic claim that she would attempt to get Clint Eastwood to not vote for Trump (Source) which in of itself is beyond amusing.
Apparently, Streep believes herself to be a deciding figure in what is truly art.
The woman needs two enemas, rectal and cranial.
Some would say that pornography is an art, and indeed it is protected by the First Amendment said the U.S. Supreme Court. (Source)
A number of actors and actresses got their starts in this line of work, were you among them?
PLEASE DO NOT STOP AS SOON AS YOU SEE HER LOVELY FACE.
There are legitimate axes to grind below.
Meryl Streep’s pedantic jab at football and MMA fans during her now infamous Golden Globes anti-Trump tirade on Sunday did not only confirm her status as a member of the out-of-touch Hollywood elite but also annoyed a few people along the way. And now they’re hitting back.
“Hollywood is crawling with foreigners and if you kick them all out all you have to watch is football and Mixed Martial Arts,” she opined.
Streep is not just inaccurate she is dangerous.
President-elect Trump, has never indicated he would remove said segments of the population.
Her words not only seemed to imply that MMA and football were lowbrow forms of entertainment for paupers, but that these sports were also less inclusive of foreigners than the Seventh Art.
Aggrieved, several fighters and mixed martial arts supporters took to Twitter to voice their opinions on Streep’s comments.
Many pointed to the double standard in her speech, which called on Americans to rise above hatred and intolerance yet casually dissed an entire class of sports and their fans.
UFC Host Megan Olivi wrote: “Really weird to see someone talk about not discriminating then basically discriminate against an entire group of skilled, hard-working ppl.”
Others reminded her that numerous Ultimate Fighting Championship’s titleholders hail from many parts of the world, with champions Jose Aldo, Conor McGregor, Amanda Nunes or MMA superstar Ronda Rousey all having roots outside the country.
Martial Arts promoter Scott Coker went even further and penned an open letter to the actress, saying:
I’m a lifelong fan of your work but also a lifelong martial artist who happens to promote mixed martial arts around the world.
The global sport of mixed martial art celebrates males and female athletes from around the world who work years tirelessly honing their crafts and – yes – arts.
They come from every country and every walk of life.
We at Bellator support them and honor their skill.
Please be my guest at the LA forum on January 21st and you will see that Mixed Martial Arts is truly artistic – which will feature fighters from all over the world competing at a world-class level.”
In a letter posted on his official Facebook page, UFC champion Josh Barnett also took issue with Streep’s remarks, joking that, to everyone’s misfortune, her nose was “so high in the air” her glasses would never fall from it and stop her from reading her pompous speeches:
“While it [Mixed Martial Arts] may not have the civil, often upper-class air to it that your art does, it is not devoid of talent, skill, training or schooling,” he said.
“Stay classy” he added.
