Imagine my surprise when Alec Baldwin actually said something that made sense about the #Metoo Movement:
Anthony Bourdain has advised Alec Baldwin to keep his opinions on the #MeToo campaign to himself.
‘Just shut up,’ was the chef and travel writer’s succinct advice for the comedian, who has repeatedly weighed in on the movement highlighting sexual harassment and assault.
Baldwin controversially appeared to attack Harvey Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan, during an interview with PBS Newshour last year, for settling with the disgraced producer.
Bourdain’s partner, Asia Argento, who was one of the first to speak out against Weinstein, called Baldwin out for comment on Twitter, tweeting: ‘Hey AlecBaldwin you’re either a complete moron or providing cover for your pals and saving your own rep. Maybe all three.’
The 30 Rock star fired back: ‘If you paint every man w the same brush, you’re gonna run out of paint or men.’
Truer words were never spoken, the movement has grown to blaming all men for not playing the part of an Uncle Tim or White Knight like Bourdain. Men are socially rewarded for being gender traitors and socially punished if they stand up for men in any way, like Baldwin.
Innocence or due process rights be damned, #Metoo and its pathetic sycophants like Bourdain should be ashamed of themselves for their misandry and paranoia towards their fellow man. As Balwin so aptly points out, painting all men with the same brush will not end well, nor is it true or fair. But truth or fairness was never the goal of the movement, and that’s the problem.
