FLASHBACK: Matt Damon Admits He Knew Harvey Weinstein’s Predatory Behavior Yet Did Nothing (Video)
Matt Damon made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live’s cold open to mock Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
The skit made jokes about him having a friend nicknamed “Gang Bang Greg” and made multiple references to the fact that he likes beer.
“Let me tell you this,” Damon began. “I’m going to start at an 11. I’m going to take it to about a 15 real quick. First of all I showed this speech to almost no one — not my family, not my friends. … This is my speech. There are others like it, but this is mine. I wrote it myself last night while screaming into an empty bag of Doritos.”
Damon went on to say that he’s a “keg is half-full” kind of optimist and that the “monsters on this committee make me want to puke… and not from beer.”
The audience loved mocking the conservative judge as he is fighting for his life and name against several unsubstantiated rumors and outright lies.
Of course, Damon is the same actor who said he knew Harvey Weinstein was raping and abusing women yet did nothing to stop it.
Less than a year ago Matt Damon and George Clooney admitted they knew about Weinstein’s abuse charges for years.
In a rare sit-down interview with Good Morning America, actors George Clooney and Matt Damon admit they knew about Harvey Weinstein’s predatory behavior towards women — but claim not to the extent to which it is being reported today.
Damon says pal Ben Affleck told him about Weinstein harassing Gwyneth Paltrow. Clooney reveals Weinstein would boast about his sexual conquests. They both knew enough to speak out, and yet, said nothing.
