Meryl Streep: Excellent use of her platform

This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone on a public platform, someone powerful, it filters down into society. It kinda gives permission for others to do the same thing.

Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When the powerful uses their position to abuse others, we all lose.

~ Meryl Streep, 2017 Golden Golds acceptance speech
