During the Golden Globe awards on Sunday, Hollywood A-lister Meryl Streep mouthed off about Donald Trump and his supporters during a lengthy speech. Now, it has come back to bite her in a big way.
In her speech, Streep claimed that actors and foreigners are in danger because Trump wants them all out of the country.
“Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. And if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts,” Streep said Sunday.
Breitbart reported that UFC President Dana White just fired back at the “uppity, 80-year-old ” for the “uneducated comment” she made about his sport.
“It’s not going to be everybody’s thing and the last thing in the world I expect is an uppity, 80-year old lady to be in our demographic and love mixed martial arts,” White told TMZ Sports.
“If you really look at who follows the UFC and is into mixed martial arts, it’s everybody,” he added. “I don’t expect an 80-year old woman to be a big fan of mixed martial arts and listen, everybody’s into whatever — I’m not a big fan of golf. It doesn’t mean people should stop watching it. If you don’t like it, change the channel.”
White then pointed out that he has fighters from all over the world who fight in many different countries. He said this shows how uneducated Streep’s comments were.
“We have fighters from all over the world,” White said. “World champions, men and women, we do fights in tons foreign countries. She’s not educated about the sport and it was a completely uneducated comment.”
