Matt Damon on Flint Water crisis & Oscar controversy




-Believes that Governor Rick Snyder should resign after poisoned water scandal, which will leave an estimated 8,000-9,000 children under age 6 with permanent brain damage, saying, “At the very least he should resign! At the very least. Listen, everybody’s entitled to a fair trial in the United States of America, but that man should get one. And soon.”
-Damon is a long-time advocate for clean water, and is a co-founder of Water.org




-Says it was "shameful and embarrassing" that we went two years in a row without nominating any actors of color & praises Cheryl Boone Isaacs for making an effort to fix this, saying her actions are a "strong first step"
