Meryl Streep Labels Walt Disney a 'Gender Bigot' and 'Hideous anti-Semite'

Hollywood veteran and esteemed actress Meryl Streep took on an ancient target when she slammed late animator Walt Disney for being a "gender bigot" and a "hideous anti-Semite," during a National Board of Review gala in New York earlier this week, the Independent reported.
