Matt Damon recently had the chutzpah to say that men who slap women on the ass should not be associated with actual rapists. Matt Damon also has a cameo in upcoming female reboot Ocean’s 8.
However, a monster (or, ‘scum’ as some are calling him) like Damon appearing in a feminist tracing-paper movie is just too much for some to stand.
By Friday, over 20,000 people had signed a petition calling on the 47-year-old actor’s cameo in the upcoming movie to be scrapped.
The outrage, according to the petition’s author, is due in part to ‘an interview where [Damon] said he’d still work people who had been accused of sexual misconduct, on a “case-by-case” basis.’
Hilarious or disturbing? You decide! Serious question, does this kind of stuff even happen in North Korea?
Anyway, with respect to the movie, which has twice as many dislikes as signatures on that petition (40,000), here’s an additional question: Out of the most high profile heists and robberies in history, how many were masterminded by women? Since this is a comedy movie about heists, might the number be as low as the number of female comedians…?
