While accepting the Cecil B. Demille Award at the 2017 Golden Globes, legendary actress Meryl Streep condemned reality star Donald Trump and the rest of the "powerful bullies" in the world, encouraging Hollywood to promote empathy and protect journalists.

Trump, who has become infamous for his aggressive use of Twitter, rapidly responded via the social platform with a personal jab at Streep.

The 9-time Golden Globe winner, he said, was "overrated" anyway.

Trump can be viewed "showing him groveling" on video here:

Since Streep's statement, a variety of A-listers have shown support and, according to The Guardian, actor and renowned activist George Clooney offered a scathing view on the matter during an interview for new Netflix documentary White Helmets:

"Aren't you supposed to be running the country?" the actor said. "I didn’t vote for him, I don’t support him, I don’t think he’s the right choice.

"At this moment in our lives we have to hope that he doesn’t destroy everything," Clooney continued. "The reality is you have to hope he will do a decent job because if the United States fails, really terrible things happen, so you have to hope that he can. I don’t see any signs of it."
