Meryl Streep's speech banging Donald Trump at the Golden Globe Awards elicited a number of responses - beginning from Trump himself, and then from a number of others.

The celebrity actress was accepting her Cecille B. DeMille Award at the 2017 Golden Globes. She explained that Hollywood comprises a diversity of talent. She recalled that in one incident, Trump had jeered at a disabled reporter, to which the 67-year-old star responded that it "broke her heart."

She was then firm that actors as well as the media tend to make the powerful people "accountable" for whatever they do. Since then, the speech became viral, according to International Business Times.

Donald Trump himself said that the actress was "over-rated." A number of other celebrities responded to her speech too, and came up with surprising remarks.

Some reactions to his reactions were pretty interesting, such as from the award-winning author, J.K. Rowling, who supported Meryl Streep. ItThat elicited another response from her fan, who said that President-elect might call the author J.K. Rowling over-rated too.

To that, the 51-year-old scribe tweeted: "Never forget that some people's good opinion would be more insulting than their abuse!"

Later, she retweeted a post, in which Trump had been spotted jeering at a disabled New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski, in a 2015 rally. JKR said that she is clearly not a fan of the businessman, Donald Trump. In fact, she had once said that he was only a "giant orange Twitter egg."

In the end, the famous author answered another fan's tweet. He had explained that it would simply increase the twitter traffic, if famous celebrities just went on putting up tweets against the President. He would just keep ranting against her on Twitter.

To that, Rowling just reacted with the sentence, that criticizing the new President would be "both a pleasure and duty."
