Matt Damon Says Clickbait/Fake News Are to Blame For 'The Gr8 Wall' Whitewashing Backlash





  • In another attempt to ruin his nice guy image, Matt Damon defended his casting on the biggest Hollywood-China co production ever 'The Great Wall' by blaming the media and their fake news!!!!! during an interview with the Associated Press.

  • “It suddenly becomes a story because people click on it, versus the traditional ways that a story would get vetted before it would get to that point." He said.

  • The author mentions that even actress Constance Wu criticized the movie for perpetuating the myth that only white man can save the world.

  • Damon then proceeds to say that "whitewashing" for him is when a white actor paints his skin to appear a different race, citing the 1962 film "Geronimo" (where Irish-American Chuck Connors played a Native American Apache chief) as an example. “The whole idea of whitewashing, I take that very seriously."
