Matt Damon Believes Men Who Are Not Accused Of Sexual Misconduct Should Be Talked About More Often

The year 2017 might as well be called the year of disappointments (not to mar the holiday mood). After a series of men, actor Matt Damon, who has always come across as the affable family man, seems to have disappointed the most. The actor has weighed in several times on the Harvey Weinstein scandal, considering he had worked with the top producer for several of his films. The actor, in a recent interview with Business Insider, said that men who don’t indulge in sexual misconduct should be talked about more.


In case that was difficult to comprehend, he in so less words tried to say that those who don’t sexually abuse or harass, should be celebrated because… nobody expects that from a man perhaps?

He also said that not all men in Hollywood are sexual predators. On a side note: It’s time to kill the hashtag #NotAllMen.

Actress Debra Messing rightfully called him out on his absolute drivel of the day. If anything, she deserves a pat on the back here.

And so, a lot of people joined in, using his own statement in everyday scenarios to show how unnecessary his statement really was.

A few days ago, Matt was under fire for his not-so well put statement on the difference between a pat on the butt and rape/molestation.

“There’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?” he said. His ex-girlfriend and colleague Minnie Driver did not let this go so easily.

This is for Matt:
