Norm MacDonald's Appearance On The Tonight Show Cancelled Due To Controversial Comments

Following widespread backlash over comments Norm Macdonald made about the #MeToo movement in an interview published Tuesday, the comedian's appearance on "The Tonight Show" has been canceled just one hour before the episode was set to air. And I meet all kinds of women with awful stories of what's happened to them.

Barr, who hired Macdonald to write on her original Roseanne series, lost her comeback series over a racist tweet. Now it's admit wrongdoing and you're finished.

In an interview in which Macdonald seemed to criticize and awkwardly defend everything he was asked about (he talked about how the Constitution was created to survive President Donald Trump, but also said the world was not as bad as he feared it would be with Trump as president), one segment stuck out. Touching on a variety of politically charged issues, Macdonald's controversial opinions on the #MeToo movement, Louis C.K. and Roseanne Barr sparked waves of criticism. In it, he revealed that he served as a friend and confidant for both Roseanne Barr and Louis C.K. in the wake of their career-imploding scandals, the former for her incendiary and racist tweets and the latter for a history of sexual misconduct. In a new interview, he voiced sympathy and support for Roseanne Barr, Louis C.K. and Chris Hardwick, and is now facing the wrath of Twitter and late-night TV execs. People will go, 'What about the victims?' But you know what? And he said, he was very, very broken up about it, he didn't want this, but he said, "I don't know what to do",' Macdonald told Stern. It used to be, "One hundred women can't be lying". Netflix comedy execs Robbie Praw and Lisa Nishimura were recently asked about giving Louis C.K. another special and were barred from answering the question.

During his interview with THR, the comedian said very few people have gone through what Barr and C.K. went through, "losing everything in a day". Senior producers are crying'. In typical dry Macdonald fashion, he then said, "You'd have to have Down syndrome", to not feel sorry for victims.

Pope calls meeting of key bishops on sexual abuse: Vatican
Cardinal McCarrick during Pope Benedict's reign, going so far to making him a close adviser. He admitted to sex abuse survivors that he had been "part of the problem" in that instance.

"I wasn't there, but everything I heard about it was that he did very well", he said.

'I said, "Good Lord, bring them in and let me talk to them". And I said 'Should I not do the show?' And he said. And I said, 'Jimmy I don't want to hurt your show.

Unfortunately, Macdonald may not have helped his case by also telling Stern that he'd "have to have Down syndrome to not feel sorry" for the victims of harassment and adding, "Down syndrome, that's my new word". The first half made me a little nervous but Fonda is a pro and never gets flustered, whether she's talking about her mortality or contemplating Macdonald's bad pickup line. "What the victims went through is disgusting".
