Maybe he’s got a point. While no one wants to see women victimized, it sometimes seems like the #MeToo movement is more about slicing up men than protecting and supporting women.
Here’s a video where he explains the degree of severity in which men are being judged and accused:
The liberal HuffPo has the interview:
Actor Liam Neeson spoke up this week for two celebrities accused of sexual harassment. While he said the effort to expose sexual harassers was generally “healthy,” he called the #MeToo movement a “bit of a witch hunt.”
Neeson cited the cases of fellow actor Dustin Hoffman and writer and radio personality Garrison Keillor during an interview on Ireland’s “The Late Late Show” that was posted online Friday.
“There is a bit of a witch hunt happening,” said Neeson.
“There’s some people, famous people, being suddenly accused of touching some girl’s knee or something, and suddenly they’re being dropped from their program,” he said, referring to Keillor.
And then he weighed in on gender pay discrepancies.
Neeson weighed in earlier this week on another issue concerning women: the gender pay gap. During an interview about his latest film, “The Commuter,” he called the pay disparity between men and women “fucking disgraceful.” He said men need to step upand help fix the problem.
Neeson is right. There’s no excuse for abuse and harassment, but there’s also no need destroy men to raise women up.
