Matt Damon, What Happened to You?

[Content Note: Privilege.]

Matt Damon has spent the past few years fading from a problematic fave to a problem.

His latest fuckery is waxing impressed about how John Krasinski overcame the "unfair burden" of having starred for many years on a hit TV show. Yes, really.

"Playing a character on a TV show for so long, John had this unfair burden he had to smash through, and that's been done now, clearly."

That is a real quote from a real article in the world.

Goddddddddddd I'm so glad I never had the unfair burden of being a straight white thin cis man who had to make millions of dollars toiling away at one of my first jobs in my chosen occupation! CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE???
