Zoe Saldana says Hollywood bullied Donald Trump during the election

Zoe Saldana is suggesting that Donald Trump was bullied by Hollywood during the election.

During a recent interview with the AFP, the actress said about the creative community, "We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies."

She then reportedly added, "We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong...and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises."

Despite her defense of Trump, she recently tweeted a thank you message to Meryl Streep for giving a speech which was viewed as largely critical of the president-elect.

While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the recent Golden Globes, Streep pointed out that "Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. If you kick 'em all out, you'll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts."

Streep also called Trump out for allegedly mocking a disabled reporter.
