I have always liked an admired Meryl Streep, but in the past hour I have decided that she is a MORON.
Yep, you heard me right.
"Variety reports, read a letter that Disney, described as a “gender bigot,” sent to a female animator in 1938 that included the line: “Women do not do any of the creative work in connection with preparing the cartoons for the screen, as that task is performed entirely by young men.”
I am also not ant-Semitic, racist, sexist, or anything else, BTW. I would never defend people who espoused those sorts of viewpoints.However, to diss famous people that one disagrees with - famous people who died decades ago - is insane. He wasn't there to defend himself. The speech was supposed to be about Emma Thompson. What Streep did was utterly and unforgivably INAPPROPRIATE.
