Well, folks, it turns out there’s more to Norm MacDonald than just live-tweeting play-by-play updates of whatever sporting event he happens to be watching at the moment.
It seems he also has other interests, such as pissing off the entirety of Twitter and torpedoing his own career.
Despite the fact that his post-SNL television career has consisted of one flop after another, Norm is giving TV another shot with a new Netflix talk show.
And apparently, he’s dying to keep his cancelation streak going because dude just shot himself in the foot about a dozen times in a single interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Norm was asked a series of softball questions with very easy answers and he managed to strike out on each one.
Asked about the #MeToo movement, MacDonald had this to say:
“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.”
As you may recall, Hardwick was accused of abuse by his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Dykstra.
Though no one really knows what went on in that relationship aside from those two, old Norm decided to take that leap for reasons that defy logic.
From there, Norm expressed some concerns about the perceived excesses of #MeToo:
“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,” he said.
That led to a lengthy discussion of Roseanne Barr’s racism and Louis C.K.’s habit of masturbating in front of unsuspecting women.
“And Roseanne was so broken up [after her show’s reboot was canceled] that I got Louis to call her, even though Roseanne was very hard on Louis before that. But she was just so broken and just crying constantly,” MacDonald said.
“There are very few people that have gone through what they have, losing everything in a day. Of course, people will go, ‘What about the victims?’
“But you know what? The victims didn’t have to go through that.”
Yep. He went there.
Now, it’s worth pointing out that in no way did Louis C.K. or Roseanne lose everything.
In fact, they both enjoy lives of almost unimaginable wealth and privilege.
Comedians like to think of themselves as some sort of secret society that’s too dark and impenetrable for the rest of the world to ever understand, so Norm probably equates their inability to continue performing with death, or some such pretentious BS.
You’d think if MacDonald really feels that strongly about practicing his craft he’d be more careful about not stepping on landmines the week that his new show premieres.
But who knows, maybe this is some sort of Andy Kaufman-esque performance art piece and the whole world is too dumb to realize Norm’s not just being an assh-le.
We kid, Norm is definitely just being an assh-le.
Norm Macdonald is no friend of the #MeToo movement … and the comedian is tired of seeing showbiz types like Roseanne Barr and Louis C.K. having their careers ruined by scandals. Norm says he’s happy the #MeToo movement has “slowed down” ……
