There were also many voices happy to call Streep out. One such voice belonged to that of political commentator and daughter of former presidential nominee John McCain, Meghan McCain, who suggested her speech was a mistake.
McCain even went as far as saying that opinions like Streep's were “why Trump won”.
The "blonde Republican" as she has referred to herself, then got in to a Twitter slinging match with comedian Billy Eichner, who wrote in reply; “Um she asked him not to make fun of disabled people and advocated for the freedom of the press and the arts you fucking moron.”
“Calling republicans like me ‘fucking morons’ is a great way for Hollywood to bridge the cultural divide," McCain responded. "Enjoy your bubble.”
McCain and Eichner weren't the only ones calling people names. Something tells us this situation won't be resolving itself any time soon!
