Donald Trump responded fairly quickly Sunday following the Golden Globes to respond to Meryl Streep who blasted the president-elect when she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

The iconic Streep criticized Trump on a number of issues, including immigration and his allegedly making fun of a disabled newspaper reporter while he was campaigning last fall.  

In the phone interview with the New York Times, Trump said he had not seen the speech and had not watched the awards show overall, but said that he was “not surprised” that the “liberal movie people" slammed him during the broadcast.

Streep made waves through social media when she echoed Hugh Laurie's comments about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association being a part of "the most vilified segments in American society right now" — Hollywood, foreigners and the press. 

"Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners, and if you kick us all out, you'll have nothing to watch except for football and mixed martial arts, which are not arts," Streep said. "But who are we, and what is Hollywood anyway? It's just a bunch of people from other places."
