While many applauded Meryl Streep’s passionate speech against President-elect Donald Trump at the Golden Globes, rumors are that least two well-known celebrities may have not approved.
Footage of Vince Vaughn and Mel Gibson watching Streep deliver her speech have gone viral, with some speculating the two conservatives appeared unimpressed, the Independent Journal Review reports.
In the speech, Streep criticized Trump for allegedly mocking a disabled reporter during his campaign.
“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. ”Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose.”
Although Streep never specifically mentioned Trump by his name, it was clear to many to whom she was referring.
While many celebrities applauded in approval during and after Streep’s speech, Vaughn and Gibson looked on with somber expressions.
Although it’s unclear whether or not either actor supported Trump — or even had an issue with Streep’s speech in the first place — many on Twitter have already made up their minds.
Some approve of her words while many conservatives called her comments inappropriate.
“When you’re the only two conservatives in a room where Trump is getting his a** dragged,” commented one Twitter user.
“The Conservative table was not feeling Meryl’s speech,” added another.
Donald Trump himself also later responded to Streep’s speech, initially using Twitter to express his thoughts, the Los Angeles Times reports.
“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 Twitter. “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!”
“People keep saying I intended to mock the reporter’s disability, as if Meryl Streep and others could read my mind, and I did no such thing,” he added in a separate interview with the Los Angeles Times.
