Meryl Streep's passionate speech at the 2017 Golden Globes on Sunday night (Jan. 9) has earned the seal of approval from singer Frank Ocean

After accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award presented by Viola Davis at the ceremony, the prolific actress slammed president elect Donald Trump for mocking a disabled reporter. "There was nothing good about it, but it did its job," she said. "It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can't get it out my head because it wasn’t in a movie, it was in real life. That instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone’s life because it gives permission for others to do the same."

"Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence," Streep added. 

Ocean took to Tumblr to applaud the six-minute speech, typing, "Say it Meryl!"
