Actress Meryl Streep caused the audience to laugh out loud on Monday night when she teased Maria for stealing her seat during the event.

The singer took to Twitter to elaborate on the whole showdown. She wrote, “Got caught mingling on the way to the loo during a commercial break.. took the first seat available, happens to be right next to Steven Spielberg. Cut to next commercial break, guess who comes back to her seat…”

In the following tweet, Mariah Carey explained what happened next and also extended the Sophie’s Choice actress an olive branch, saying, “(me) Dear Meryl, please forgive me!!! (MERYL STREEP) You can take my seat anytime!”

Meryl Streep told Jimmy Kimmel her own version of the story. Watch the entire interview below:

The 68-year-old joked: “Yeah, bitch stole my seat,” adding “I came over and there she was next to (Steven) Spielberg sucking up.”

What follows is a hilarious explanation of how Meryl offered to sit on Mariah’s lap and everybody had a good laugh.

Meryl Streep and Mariah Carey were just two of the female attendees at the 2018 Golden Globes that chose to wear black. They showed solidarity with sexual assault victims. Other actresses who donned black included Michelle Williams, Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Angelina Jolie and many others.

Eva Longoria spoke about her participation in the Golden Globes blackout: “For years, we’ve sold these awards shows as women, with our gowns and colors and our beautiful faces and our glamour. This is a moment of solidarity, not a fashion moment.”

Another actress chose to wear a scarlet red dress instead. Blanca Blanco, who has appeared in Beverly Hills Christmas and Showgirls 2: Penny’s from Heaven defended her choice, saying that she loved the color red.

“I love red. Wearing red does not means I am against #timesup movement. I applaud and stand by the courageous actresses that continue to break the circle of abuse through their actions and their style choice. It is one of many factors leading women to a safer place because of their status in the acting world. I am excited about the ‘Time’s UP’ movement because true change is long overdue.”

Here are some other actresses who didn’t wear black to the event.
