Oops, Macklemore Just Referenced A Fake Meryl Streep Quote In New Interview!

Whoopsies.

During an interview on the Zach Sang Show on Thursday, Macklemore proved he got swayed by some fake news when he referenced what he thought was a Meryl Streep quote — one that was proven to be fake after a 2015 Facebook post went viral from a fan account.

When discussing criticism online, the 34-year-old mentioned a quote he saw from “Meryl” on Instagram:

“She posted something that was like, you know, my first audition or one of my first auditions, they told me I wasn’t pretty enough and that was a pivotal moment for her to either keep going or to stop and she chose to keep going and 18 Academy Awards later or 23—18 or 23—I don’t know. An exorbitant amount of Academy Awards.”

Well, first of all, the legendary actress doesn’t have an IG… but also she’s won three Oscars (20 nominations). Eep.

Well, it’s a good message nonetheless!
