Streep spoke out at a fundraising gala for the Human Rights Campaign. 

Meryl Streep has stepped up to the plate once again. Accepting an award for her support to the LGBTQ community, actress and overall goddess Streep used her public platform again to take a stand against the cheeto who shall not be named.

Streep has been outspoken about her disapproval of the 45th President numerous times, most recently during her speech at the Golden Globes in which she said his attack of a disabled reporter "kind of broke" her heart. After, the President took to Twitter (typing with tiny thumbs we assume) to call the most one of the most beloved actresses of our time "overrated."

"Yes, I am the most overrated, over-decorated and currently, I am the most over-berated actress ... of my generation," said Streep at Saturday's fundraising gala for the Human Rights Campaign.

She added that since the Golden Globes, she has been targeted by "brownshirts and bots." Nevertheless, she persisted, taking to the podium to deliver her audience a call to action:

"It's terrifying to put the target on your forehead," Streep said. "And it sets you up for all sorts of attacks and armies of brownshirts and bots and worse, and the only way you can do it is if you feel you have to. You have to! You don't have an option. You have to."
