Matt Damon And His Sexual Misconduct 'Spectrum' Have Not Gone Down Well On Social Media

Matt Damon has come under fire again after weighing in on the ongoing sexual harassment allegations being made against key figures in Hollywood.

Matt Damon has come under fire again after weighing in on the ongoing sexual harassment allegations being made against key figures in Hollywood.

The ‘Downsizing’ actor, who has hit headlines previously for his comments on the Harvey Weinstein scandal, this time shared his view that when it comes to sexual misconduct, he feels there is a “spectrum” on which certain behaviour falls.

Speaking to ABC’s Peter Travers, Matt said of the current climate: “I think it’s wonderful that women are feeling empowered to tell their stories, and it’s totally necessary.”

And then... he continued talking.

Matt then talked a little more, this time providing specific examples from the past few months and explaining where on his “spectrum” he thinks these incidents fell.

On what he called “the Louis C.K. thing”, he admitted to not knowing “all the details”, but surmised that from reading the comedian’s statement, Matt “[doesn’t] imagine [Louis C.K.] is going to do those things again”.

Matt went on to say that were a friend of his to be accused he would “know the real story” from them, putting the cherry on a cake which a lot of people on social media seem reluctant to cut themselves a slice of:

I’m so grateful we have Matt Damon to tell us which sexual assaults and/or harassment are bad, and which are just meh

Seriously? Does he know what it’s like to have his ass patted by a person who is so much bigger and stronger than him that he’s terrified the unwanted touching WON’T STOP THERE? Fuck you, Matt Damon.

Why is anyone asking Matt Damon about how he feels about Sexual Harassment? Because we are short on white men’s opinions about how women should feel about it? Because a man needs to weigh in on how women should feel? Stop. Asking. The. Men.
