While promoting his new movie Stillwater, Matt Damon made headlines when he admitted in an interview with The Sunday Times that he only stopped using the gay slur f****t a few months ago.

When he used the word in front of his kids, one of his daughters wrote, ‘a very long, beautiful treatise on how that word is dangerous. I said, “I retire the f-slur!” I understood.’ 

Several celebrities and writers took to Twitter to respond to the actor’s surprising revelation, including Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen.

‘I want to know what word Matt Damon has replaced f****t with,’ said comedian Billy Eichner, who is also gay.

He also said in another tweet, ‘And to think I didn’t throw a retirement party!’ 

He added in another tweet, ‘Imagine this headline about any other derogatory ethnic/racial/religious etc slur being used in 2021. People would be up in arms and rightfully so. But you’re still allowed to be homophobic in this fake-woke industry. HAPPY PRIDE!!!’

Film journalist Jordan Hoffman tweeted, ‘Do celebrities not realize they are not legally required to speak to the press?’

The tweet also garnered a response from actor Seth Rogen, who said, ‘They actually literally are a lot of the time,’ referring to actors being required to promote their projects by the studios in their contracts.

Even with that being the case, many were baffled that Damon revealed that information so casually in the interview.

TV writer Chase Mitchell stated, ‘Everybody: The National news media: The trades: TMZ: Matt Damon: ‘Y’know I said f****t until like last Tuesday.’

Writer Charlotte Clymer, who is also a lesbian, added, ‘This news bit about Matt Damon only recently deciding to stop saying “f****t” after his daughter wrote him a “treatise” on it just makes me sad. Geez.’

She added in another tweet, ‘I have a bad feeling that this is an incredibly clumsy attempt at marketing for a film in which Damon plays a good ole boy trying to save his queer daughter from harm, and I gotta tell ya: I know a lot of good ole boys who already get why this is wrong and don’t do it.’

Writer-director Travon Free added, ‘So Matt Damon just figured out “months ago”, by way of a “treatise” from a child, that he’s not supposed to say the word f****t. Months ago. Months ago. 

The Young Turks contributor Adrienne Lawrence added, ‘If Matt Damon’s using homophobic slurs at the dinner table in 2021, you can’t tell me he’s not using racist slurs too. Bet.’ 

TV writer Jaclyn Moore added, ‘Remember when the joke was that Ben Affleck was the dumb one and Matt Damon was the smart one? Because one is dating J-Lo and the other is spending the year of our lord Dolly Parton 2021 bragging about how he just stopped saying “f*g.”

Another entertainment journalist, Daniel Fienberg, added, ‘As a member of the press, I like when celebrities talk to the press, but it’s always illuminating to hear the stories that folks like Liam Neeson or Matt Damon think are humanizing and charming, but actually reveal insulation and isolation (among other unsavory stuff) instead.’ 

Freelance writer Erin Biba tweeted, ‘Matt Damon really becomes more intolerable by the second, huh? Like the hole that dude has dug himself might come out the other side of the Earth soon.’ 

Damon has yet to publicly comment on the controversy after the interview was first published.
