For the second straight day, Matt Damon spoke about Hollywood's sexual assault problem and put his foot in his mouth.
Damon’s career was built by disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. So Business Insider asked Damon would he become more cautious with who he collaborated. Damon replied, (quote) “One thing that’s not being talked about is there are a whole load of guys — the preponderance of men I’ve worked with — who don’t do this kind of thing.”
The #MeToo movement doesn’t want to hear Damon talk about the good guys. They actually don’t want to hear Damon at all. Chertweeted, (quote) “Matt Damon is the epitome of a faux ally whose performative wokeness is more about servicing his own ego than the needs of the oppressed & disenfranchised.”
One film critic alluded to Damon’s movie The Martian when tweeted, (quote) “For real though, should have left Matt Damon on Mars.”
Debra Messing said, (quote) “How about we NOT celebrate men who are simply decent human beings. Stay on track, Matt. It’s not about you.”
Rachel Evan Wood simply pleaded on Twitter, (quote) “Stop talking.”
