Cherished actress, political activist, wonderful eye-roller: Meryl Streep is a woman of many cultural roles. Now, she joins the ranks of other greats as a big, bright, beautiful meme.
An old picture from the 2015 SAG awards shows the inimitable actor shouting through closed hands. The internet wisely chose to use this pic as a way to shout out the things they most want to shout.

It's truly an all purpose meme, relevant to teens and drunk wedding attendees alike.

It's bringing back some of the biggest bangers of all time. Stanley Steemer theme still rides.

Meryl Streep is probably not spending a lot (read: any) of time scouring night Twitter for memes of herself, but it's nice thinking that somewhere out there in a mid-century modern furnished sitting room, she's looking at an iPad and giggling.
