Alyssa Milano blasts Matt Damon over ‘culture of outrage’ remarks, by Riley Morgan.
Milano was a prominent figure in helping promote the social media #MeToo campaign.
The lynch mob is gathering the rope. The ABC thinks this is a meaningful exchange instead of embarrassingly trite. Here’s the evil Matt Damon:
“I do believe that there’s a spectrum of behaviour,” Damon said. “And we’re going to have to figure — you know, there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviours need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?”
So Matt committed the crime of trying to put some nuance back into the lynch mob conversation, by pointing out that some targets are more important than others.
Alyssa Milano made a tweet that has some kind of hero status on the left, as if she is brave and helpful by destroying rational conversation with outrage dialed up to 100% every time for even a pat on the bottom.
So yes, Alyssa, but we don’t cure cancer by treating every case the same way.
People are not impressed in tweets in reply. Mocking her inane comment. Cancer survivors are also protesting that she is insulting their struggles.
Matt Damon is, by the way, a rare Hollywood type who married a woman who was a bartender with one child. Now they have three other children. Still married 12 years later. His marriage has been called Hollywood’s greatest romance.
He must be the nicest guy in Hollywood but they are roasting him for interrupting their #metoo celebrity moment.
