Meryl Streep Comes Under Fire For Saying: "We're All Africans Really"

The queen is under ATTACK.

Meryl Streep is drawing harsh criticism right now, after a comment she made during a press panel at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Streep, who's serving as jury president, dismissed a reporters questions about the panel being 'all white'.

She continued to say that she was committed to equality, as well as inclusion of "all genders, races, ethnicities, religions.” She further stated: 

“This jury is evidence that at least women are included and in fact dominate this jury, and that’s an unusual situation in bodies of people who make decisions,” 

 “So I think the Berlinale is ahead of the game.

“There is a core of humanity that travels right through every culture, and after all we’re all from Africa originally,”  

“Berliners, we’re all Africans really.”
