  • Norm Macdonald Just Dug an Even Deeper #MeToo Hole by Making a Down Syndrome Joke

Norm Macdonald is no friend of the #MeToo movement. and the comedian is exhausted of seeing showbiz types like Roseanne Barr and Louis C.K. having their careers ruined by scandals.

NBC has announced that it cancelled Norm Macdonald's September 11 Tonight Show appearance out of "sensitivity" to their audience after the comedian's latest remarks about the MeToo movement.

In the article, Macdonald referred to how Louis C.K., Chris Hardwick and Roseanne Barr have been treated recently, saying he's "happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a little bit". What I was saying was the reason to put Louis and Roseanne together to talk was because only a few people in the whole world have gone through this new thing where everything is stripped from them ... He stirred up ire by remarking that their victims "didn't have to go through" what the public figures did, according to The New York Times. The victims didn't have to go through that. It was obviously too late by this point, and many are starting to wonder if Netflix will take any action with the upcoming Norm Macdonald Has a Show, which premieres next week.

They both said they had a good conversation and were just giving any advice you could give to each other.

Louis CK was accused, and admitted to, masturbating in front of women without consent, while Roseanne Barr likened an African American former Obama staffer to a cross between "the Muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes".

He also continued to retract his controversial #MeToo comment, telling Stern that the movement "is what you want for your daughters".


'I have so many women in my family and so many women I know that awful things have happened to them.

"That's not healthy", he concluded, "that there is no forgiveness".

Yesterday the Hollywood Reporter published an interview with Macdonald, and he said a lot of things you're not supposed to say if you want to work in show business in 2018.

"It used to be, 'One hundred women can't be lying.' And then it became, 'One woman can't lie.' And that became, 'I believe all women.' And then you're like, 'What?' Like, that Chris Hardwick guy I really thought got the blunt end of the stick there", Macdonald said. Instead, Macdonald tells Letterman a joke about The Beverly Hillbillies and talks about how they're now part of the "brotherhood" of Netflix. "That's my guess. I know a couple of people this has happened to". Macdonald says that his comments were meant to be about someone's career getting wiped out in an instant. The victims didn't have to go through that. And I said, 'Should I not do the show?' And he said.

"I wasn't there, but everything I heard about it was that he did very well", he said. They both made bad mistakes and I would never defend their actions.

'If my words sounded like I was minimizing the pain that their victims feel to this day, I am deeply sorry'.
