Many praised Meryl Streep for her ‘ brave’ speech at the Golden Globes Sunday…but we did a little bit of fishing into her past and discovered something pretty gruesome and hypocritical. Does anyone remember a pedophile barred from the country named Roman Polanski ? Well footage shows her doing THIS for him. You don’t want to miss it!
VIA| A video from 2003 where pedophile and child rapist, Roman Polanski, received an Oscar has surfaced. As his award is announced, you can see a whole room of famous faces laughing, smiling, cheering and clapping for the man. Chief among them was Meryl Streep, who gave Polanski a standing ovation. What a hypocrite. She’s hardly one to judge President-elect Trump when she obviously hearts Polanski and condones his past crimes. He can’t come to America, because he’s a wanted man here.
Per Wikipedia, in 1977, after a photo shoot in Los Angeles, Polanski was arrested for the rape of 13 year-old Samantha Geimer and pleaded guilty to the charge of statutory rape. He was released from prison after serving only 42 days and was told that the prosecutors had agreed to ask for him to be put on probation. When he learned that the judge planned to reject his plea bargain, he fled to Paris before sentencing. He publicly offered his apology to Geimer, telling her that he regretted the episode. In September of 2009, he was arrested by Swiss police and later released after Swiss authorities denied a US request for his extradition. In October of 2015, after another request for extradition, a judge in Poland refused the request. This is the man that Streep thinks the world of. But she has the nerve to chastise Donald Trump. SMH.
