Donald Trump has launched into a Twitter tirade against Meryl Streep after the actress rebuked the President-elect at the Golden Globes.
During her acceptance speech for a lifetime achievement award, Streep attacked the President-elect for imitating a disabled reporter. She said it was the one performance this year which shocked her and argued it legitimised bullying and gave “permission” for others to do the same.
This is a reference to when Mr Trump mocked theI reporter Serge Kovaleski.
Mr Trump has now hit back at Streep on Twitter, saying she is one of the most “over-rated actresses in Hollywood” and is a “Hillary flunky who lost big”.
“Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes,” he wrote on Monday.
“She is a Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never ‘mocked’ a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him ‘groveling’ when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!”
