On Sunday night, Meryl Streep turned her acceptance speech at the Golden Globe Awards into a ridiculous lecture about how “evil” Donald Trump is.
Though many celebrities in the liberal world of Hollywood applauded Streep for her speech at the time, many other public figures have turned their backs on her in the days since the speech.
Fox News reported that country star Travis Tritt took to Twitter to offer some “advice to all actors.”
“Advice to all actors, musicians and entertainers: Please stick to your crafts that we all love you for and drop the political rhetoric,” he tweeted.
If you have fans who respect your talent enough to spend hard earned money to see your talent, be thankful and gracious and leave it at that

British television personality Piers Morgan agreed, saying he hasn’t “heard such elitist snobbery since Hillary Clinton branded Trump supporters ‘a basket of deplorables.'”
Morgan cited the moment when Streep said “the most vilified segments of American society right now” are Hollywood, foreigners and the press. He said that Streep was a hypocrite because right when she said that, “the cameras panned out to hundreds of the richest, most privileged people in American society sitting in the audience in their $10,000 tuxedos and $20,000 dresses, loudly cheering this acknowledgement of their dreadful victimhood.”
“You’d be hard-pushed to find an industry that encourages more disrespect and violence than Hollywood,” Morgan wrote for Daily Mail.
Other stars also braved liberal backlash to slam Streep on Twitter.
