What are your overall thoughts on the #metoo movement? Do you think it has gone too far?

Norm Macdonald recently spoke about the metoo movement and lightly criticized it and as a result his appearance on the Tonight show with Jimmy Fallon was cancelled. https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory/tonight-show-cancels-norm-macdonald-metoo-comments-57768320

Norm: I'm happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a little bit. 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.

What about when someone admits to wrongdoing?

The model used to be: admit wrongdoing, show complete contrition and then we give you a second chance. Now it's admit wrongdoing and you're finished. And so the only way to survive is to deny, deny, deny. That's not healthy — that there is no forgiveness. I do think that at some point it will end with a completely innocent person of prominence sticking a gun in his head and ending it. That's my guess. I know a couple of people this has happened to.
