In January 2017, Streep went on an anti-Trump rant during the Golden Globes Award ceremony. The Academy Award-winning actress mocked President Trump for not welcoming illegal immigrants and refugees from top terror nations into the United States, telling her adoring fans, “Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners and if we kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts.”

As it turns out, it’s a member of Streep’s own family who isn’t too fond of immigrants—in fact, according to his alleged 18-year-old Hispanic victim, David Peralta, Meryl Streep’s 31-year-old nephew, Charles Harrison Streep is a “racist.”

Meryl Streep’s nephew, Charles Harrison Streep, son of her brother Dana Streep, who is also an actor, was allegedly involved in a violent road rage incident that resulted in brain surgery for the 18-year-old Hispanic victim.

Why has the mainstream media remained silent about this horrible attack?

Daily Mail – According to David Peralta, ‘I didn’t deserve this. He said a bunch of racist things to me, just because I’m Hispanic. I don’t know what that has to do with anything.

‘He said he would throw me to the ground, threatened me and said I was ”just Spanish.”’

Meanwhile, Peralta’s family has brought a civil suit describing this as a, ‘completely unprovoked, violent and malicious attack,’ and demanding damages.

The 18-year-old college student had been due to start his sophomore year at New York’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

Instead, he has been left homebound and fearful, struggling to pick up the pieces of a life shattered in a matter of minutes, by a chance encounter one summer morning.

The 18-year-old Peralta told the Daily Mail that on August 24, he stopped at Chase Bank on his way to breakfast in East Hampton with his girlfriend, Christina.

As Peralta made to turn off the main street, he said, ‘Streep blew through a Stop sign and we almost collided.

‘He started screaming at me for no reason. I remember that I told him, ”You have to make the Stop sign.” And I thought that was it.’

But the angry verbal altercation between Streep in his Audi convertible and Peralta was just the start, as the older man made an illegal U-turn and came back for more.

Peralta said, ‘I just kept driving to the bank and then I see he followed me, and he gets out of his car and starts yelling at me multiple times about being Hispanic.’

According to Peralta, Streep also mocked his youthful appearance asking, ‘What are you? 14 or something?’

Some of what happened next is lost to Peralta due to the severity of his injuries which saw him unconscious and with a brain bleed.

But he remembers Streep got out of his car and angrily approached Peralta’s.

Peralta said, ‘I’m like, ”Why has he followed me?” and then he starts yelling and screaming. I was with my girlfriend and I have a new car and I didn’t want anything to happen [to either of them] so I got out too.’

Peralta continued, ‘He starts coming at me, pushing me. He said, ”You’re just Spanish I’m going to slam you to the ground… [after that] I don’t remember much because I went unconscious until I remember waking up. I saw I was bleeding, like my knees and my knuckles and my nose and my head.’

Peralta may never remember exactly what happened but his girlfriend Christina Lopez, 17, gave an account of what she witnessed that day.

Christina recalled Streep pushing Peralta and Peralta pushing back and bringing Streep to the ground in a brief scuffle.

According to Christina, David ‘never threw a punch and just let go,’ at which point Streep seized the moment to lock David in a chokehold.

Peralta’s parents, Edgar, 47, and Jeny, 44, are from Ecuador though he himself was born in America, where he has lived all of his life.

He said, ‘I thought this only happens in movies. I never thought anything like this would ever happen to me. I’m not a bad guy. I’m not a bad person. I just work, come home, see my girlfriend and my family.

‘I don’t know why I deserve this, why this has happened.’


Streep is listed as an “Investor Fellow” at VU Venture Partners in Manhattan.  According to Angel List, the well-educated Streep attended college at two liberal universities, Bucknell and Columbia University.

Streep was arrested at his parent’s East Hampton home three days after the alleged assault and just a five-minute drive from the Chase Bank parking lot in which the altercation took place.

He has been charged with felony counts of second-degree assault and second-degree strangulation and released on a $5,000 bail while he awaits criminal proceedings.

As well as their home in the Hamptons the family owns a large property in Connecticut and Charles is one of four siblings.

But this is not the first time he has had a brush with the law, though it appears to be by far the most serious.

Court records obtained by show that Streep was found guilty of disorderly conduct/physical offense (engaging in fighting or violent conduct, using obscene language or gestures) in an incident linked to a traffic stop in Pennsylvania in 2012.

Today, Chakmakian is adamant, ‘The legal system, both on the criminal and the civil front is going to show him that there are consequences for your actions.’

When approached the Streep family for comment at their expansive East Hampton home Charles’s mother, Mary, answered the door.

She dismissed inquiries on the subject as ‘trashy’ and said, ‘there are two sides to every story,’ but declined to elaborate further.

Meanwhile, Peralta’s family has brought a civil suit describing this as a, ‘completely unprovoked, violent and malicious attack,’ and demanding damages.

Today a crescent scar arcs across Peralta’s skull where surgeons went in to remove his skull cap and ease the pressure on his brain. The staples were only removed two days before he spoke with and he moved his hand tentatively over it.

He has not been able to start back at college and the truth is there is no way of knowing when, or if, he ever will.

He has a regimen of medication and pain killers and instead of dates with friends, his schedule is populated by appointments with specialists, check-ups, therapy and CAT scans.

According to his mother, the boy who came back from the hospital a week after surgery is not the same boy who went to get breakfast with his girlfriend on August 24.

He is forgetful, quiet, and often sad.

He doesn’t want to go out anymore she said and the car that brought him such brief joy sits unused in the driveway.

Jeny said, ‘He’s not like he was before. Seeing him at home is hard. He asks me why this happened to him. He’s totally different.

‘But I’m here trying to support him and trying to be strong for him and I am thankful to God because my son is alive.’
