Meryl Streep Just Put Her Foot In Her Mouth, Says "We're All Africans, Really"

Hollywood actress Meryl Streep just put her foot in her mouth in the worst way for saying “we’re all Africans” to defend the all-white jury for the 2016 Berlin International Film Festival.

The Hollywood actress is heading the Berlin International Film Festival jury, and as this is her first time doing so, she came out of the gate strong, saying that she’s committed to equality and will strive to be inclusive “of all genders, races, ethnicities, religions.” Good, Streep.

But, when asked by an Egyptian reporter about her understanding of films from the Arab world and North Africa, Streep said, “I’ve played a lot of different people from a lot of different cultures. 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.”
