Sean Penn Think #MeToo Is Just A Series Of Unfortunate Events

Sean Penn is worried that the #MeToo movement will separate men and women.

Speaking to Today, Penn had the following to say about the movement.

“This is a movement that was largely shouldered by a kind of receptacle of the salacious. We don’t know what’s a fact in many of the cases. Salacious is as soon as you call something a movement that is really a series of many individual accusers, victims, accusations, some of which are unfounded.

“The spirit of much of what has been the #MeToo movement is to divide men and women. I don’t want it to be a trend, and I’m very suspicious of a movement that gets glommed on to in great stridency and rage and without nuance. And even when people try to discuss it in a nuanced way, the nuance itself is attacked. I think it’s too black and white. In most things that are very important, it’s really good to just slow down.”

I think the spirit of the #MeToo movement is to out creeps like Harvey Weinstein and give power to females who have been wronged by sexual assault and harassment. But I’m a male, so maybe that’s just what they want me to think?

My favorite line from the quote is “Salacious is as soon as you call something a movement that is really a series of many individual accusers, victims, accusations, some of which are unfounded.”

Nah dude, that’s definitely a movement. This isn’t Lemony Snickett’s A Series of Unfortunate Events where these women just decide to come out all in succession to ruin powerful white dudes. It’s a women standing up and no longer being afraid of the powerful white guys. They are moving towards freedom. Thus, a movement.

Sean Penn should no longer talk unless he’s scripted to do so.
