Meryl Streep didn’t just take a dig at President-elect Donald Trump in her speech at last night’s Golden Globe Awards. The actress also dissed fans of football and MMA fighting.
And UFC President Dana White is not happy about it.
Calling the actress an “uppity, 80-year-old lady,” White said he’s not surprised to find out Streep isn’t in the UFC’s top demographic.
“So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners,” Streep said as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award. “And if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.”
White, a Trump supporter, responded telling TMZ, “Of course it’s an art. These fighters, these men and women are so talented…saying something stupid like that is like saying…she’s not a talented actress which she is.”
He added, “We have fighters from all over the world…She’s not educated about the sport and that was a completely uneducated comment.”
