I’m nonetheless in state of disbelief about that Matt Damon interview. If there wasn’t video to associate with the detailed and horrendous transcript, I might need even questioned if it was actual. However no, it’s very actual. Matt Damon is really that tone-deaf. He actually is a large douchebag. In fact, we knew he was problematic as hell way back. That interview was so unhealthy, although, it appears like merely say “he’s canceled” isn’t going far sufficient. It’s fascinating to see the backlash – particularly from larger profile voices – in opposition to Damon within the wake of that horrendous, rubbish interview. A type of high-profile voices? Minnie Driver, who dated Matt Damon again within the 1990s till he introduced throughout an Oprah interview that that they had damaged up (it was information to Minnie). Right here’s what she tweeted:

She interacted together with her Twitter followers after that and surprisingly saved it on-topic – there was no tea-spilling of any private sh-t. Minnie appeared most offended by Damon’s argument that “we will work with that” if a sexual predator solely, like, masturbated in entrance of unconsenting ladies and supplied a bullsh-t apology about it. She was offended by the concept Damon was making an attempt to attenuate the abuses many ladies have suffered, like ladies aren’t actually victims in the event that they’ve simply been groped and assaulted a bit of bit. Minnie famous in one other tweet “You don’t get to be hierarchical with abuse. And also you don’t get to inform ladies that as a result of some man solely confirmed them their penis, their ache isn’t as nice as a lady who was raped.” Effectively stated.

Along with Minnie’s considerate responses to Damon, Alyssa Milano additionally had so much to say. I’m not going to embed all of the tweets, however right here you go:

Pricey Matt Damon,

It’s the micro that makes the macro. We’re in a “tradition of concern” as a result of the magnitude of rage is, in reality, overtly outrageous. And it’s righteous. I’ve been a sufferer of every element of the sexual assault spectrum of which you communicate. All of them damage. And they’re all related to a patriarchy intertwined with normalized, accepted–even welcomed– misogyny. We’re not outraged as a result of somebody grabbed our asses in an image. We’re outraged as a result of we have been made to really feel this was regular. We’re outraged as a result of we’ve been gaslighted. We’re outraged as a result of we have been silenced for therefore lengthy. There are completely different phases of most cancers. Some extra treatable than others. However it’s nonetheless most cancers. Sexual harassment, misconduct, assault and violence is a systemic illness. The tumor is being minimize out proper now with no anesthesia. Please ship flowers. #MeToo

I don’t have an issue with what she stated. I imply, we may all write some long-winded thinkpieces about Why Matt Damon Wants To Shut His Rattling Mouth, or How You Like Them Apples: Matt Damon Is An A–gap. However proper at this very second, I’m form of glad that somebody of Damon’s stature within the business is exhibiting his ass. We are able to all level to him and say “that is the issue, for this reason predators are enabled for therefore lengthy, as a result of that is how highly effective white males actually suppose.”
