‘There’s a difference’ Matt Damon criticised for harassment remarks

Matt Damon is facing criticism over comments he made regarding the recent sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood.

Taking your typical ‘not all men’ style stance, the actor shared that he felt that there will be men who will be unaffected by the #MeToo movement.

He seems to believe that the men who do not sexually assault women should be praised and discussed.

‘We're in this watershed moment, and it's great, but I think one thing that's not being talked about is there are a whole s–tload of guys—the preponderance of men I've worked with—who don't do this kind of thing and whose lives aren't going to be affected,’ he shared with Business Insider.

‘If I have to sign a sexual-harassment thing, I don't care, I'll sign it.’

‘I would have signed it before. I don't do that, and most of the people I know don't do that.’

We’re not sure about you Matt, but we think that not sexually harassing women is far from an accolade, more like a hallmark of a society that’s safe for women?

The actor also told ABC News that certain behaviours are not as bad as others.

'There's a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?' he said.

'Both of those behaviours need to be confronted and eradicated, without question, but they shouldn't be conflated, right?'
