Matt Damon’s controversial comment on sexual harassment sets Twitter ablaze


In a recent interview with a leading channel, the 47-year-old actor argued that while he is supportive of women being “empowered” by speaking out about their experiences of sexual harassment, he also insisted that there is a “spectrum of behaviour” that should be respected, and that certain behaviours aren’t bad enough to warrant loss of work as a result, reports E! Damon said, “I think it’s wonderful that women are feeling empowered to tell their stories and it’s totally necessary. Then I read an interview with Matt Damon and realise oh, how terribly naive. Then I read an interview with Matt Damon and realize oh, how terribly naive. I did these things. You know, there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? thing. One Twitter user wrote, “Men who splits hairs on the issue of sexual violence are waving a flag so red, it’ll burn your eyes.”
“I start to think maybe most men are learning about sexual harassment & assault? These women are all telling the truth. Because if you take responsibility for what you did, your life’s going to get ruined.”

The problem with responses like the ones Tom Hanks & Matt Damon gave today is that men are taught their opinion is important even if it’s about an issue they don’t know much about, while women are taught to apologize for their opinions even when they’re well versed in the topic. Of course not,” wrote another user. Speaking about the Weinstein scandal in October, he described the shamed Hollywood mogul as an “a**hole” and confirmed that he knew of Gwyneth Paltrow’s accusations about Weinstein.
