“Matt Damon bizarrely admitted in a new interview that he only recently stopped using the ‘the f-slur for a homosexual’ after his daughter wrote a ‘treatise’ on why using the word to refer to people, gay or otherwise, is unacceptable.
After confessing this in an interview with the U.K.’s Sunday Times to promote his new movie ‘Stillwater,’ Damon was the target of many memes as well as pointed criticism as many people online questioned both why he decided to share this information — and also why he was still using such a derogatory term in 2021.
The Boston-born leading man said the ‘f-slur for a homosexual’ was ‘commonly used when I was a kid, with a different application.’”
It boggles the mind that Matt Damon, 50, who works in the entertainment industry where there are many open and proud gays and lesbians, only recently stopped using the slur word, faggot.
I applaud his daughter for having the patience to write a treatise explaining why the f-word is so patently offensive. If I was in Damon’s inner circle and I heard him utter the abhorrent word I would have screamed: Listen you freaking moron, if you repeat that repellent word in my presence again, I will never speak to you again.
Damon tried to justify himself by saying the f-slur was commonly used when he was a kid, with a different application. I’m sure the word “nigger” was also used when he was a kid, but as a grown-ass man he has enough sense not to utter that racial epithet in public, or private for that matter.
Damon claims that when he used that gay slur as a kid, he used it with a different application. That’s doublespeak, there is no context in which uttering that vile word is acceptable.
There is only one f-word to describe Damon: Fool!
