PIC: This is the note Robert De Niro sent to Meryl Streep after her Golden Globes speech
From one Hollywood legend to another.
Last year he said he wanted to punch the businessman in the face and now Robert De Niro has expressed his support for Meryl Streep, after her now famous Golden Globes speech against Donald Trump earlier this week.
His note reads...
What you said was great. It needed to be said, and you said it beautifully. I have so much respect for you that you did it while the world was celebrating your achievements. I share your sentiments about punks and bullies. Enough is enough. You, with your elegance and intelligence, have a powerful voice – one that inspires others to speak up as they should so their voices will be heard too. It is so important that we ALL speak up.
We love you.

In her speech, Streep focused on Trump's mocking of a disabled reporter during last year's presidential campaign.
"It kind of broke my heart... and I still can’t get it out of my head, because it wasn’t in a movie,” she said.
"It was real life. And this instinct to humiliate when it’s modelled by someone in the public platform by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing."
