Matt Damon Wonders Why We Aren’t Talking About The Men Who Aren’t Sexual Predators

Hmmm 🤔

Matt Damon is in hot water again.

The actor came under fire last week for his tone-deaf comments about rape culture in an ABC News interview. On Monday, he appeared to miss the point again in a Business Insider interview about the sexual misconduct allegations rocking Hollywood.

Damon told Business Insider that he thinks the public discourse should pay more attention to the men who haven’t sexually harassed or assaulted anyone.

“We’re in this watershed moment and it’s great, but I think one thing that’s not being talked about is there are a whole shitload of guys ― the preponderance of men I’ve worked with ― who don’t do this kind of thing and whose lives aren’t going to be affected,” he said. “If I have to sign a sexual harassment thing, I don’t care, I’ll sign it. I would have signed it before. I don’t do that and most of the people I know don’t do that.”

Many people on Twitter were not too pleased with Damon’s comments. 

When asked if he would work with individuals accused of sexual misconduct, Damon responded that it would have to be on a “case-by-case basis.”

“That always went into my thinking. I mean, I wouldn’t want to work with somebody who ― life’s too short for that,” he said. “But the question of if somebody had allegations against them, you know, it would be a case-by-case basis. You go, ‘What’s the story here?’”
