LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- Hollywood actress Meryl Streep spoke critically of U.S. President Donald Trump again on Sunday, saying she has become a target of Trump.

Streep made the remarks at a fundraising gala for the Human Rights Campaign, noting that she has got verbal aggression since she first criticized Trump in her Golden Globes speech in January.

"It's terrifying to put the target on your forehead," she said. "And it sets you up for all sorts of attacks and armies of brownshirts and bots and worse, and the only way you can do it is if you feel you have to. You have to! You don't have an option. You have to."

The term "brownshirts" was first used to describe an early Nazi militia, the SA.

In Trump's tweets about Streep's criticism, he called her "one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood" and "a Hillary flunky who lost big."

Streep responded to Trump's language assault, "Currently, I am the most over-berated actress ... of my generation."
