      One of the most talked-about events at last night's Golden Globe Awards was Meryl Streep's speech after winning the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

      She took aim at President-elect Donald Trump, without stating his name.

      In particular, she cited his mockery of a reporter with a disability, which was repeatedly broadcast over the campaign season.

      "It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth," Streep said. "It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart and I still can't get it out of my head because it wasn't in a movie. It was in real life."

      Watch Meryl Streep take down Donald Trump.

      She pointed out that when someone in public life demonstrates an instinct to humiliate, this behaviour is modelled and filters down, giving others permission to act in this manner.

      "Disrespect invites disrespect," Streep said. "Violence incites violence."

      Naturally, Trump took to Twitter to fire back at Streep.

      In November, CNN reported that Trump mocked a New York Times reporter.
