Meryl Streep criticizes mixed martial arts during Golden Globe’s speech

Actress Meryl Streep criticized the sport of mixed martial arts tonight during a speech she made after receiving the Lifetime Achievement award at the 2017 Golden Globe awards show.

“Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners.  And if you kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts which are not the arts.”

The actresses’ comments upset many within the industry and quite a few took to social media to unleash a response.

Bellator MMA President Scott Coker has issued a letter in response to Streep.
