Sexual harassment in Hollywood: Comedian John Oliver confronts Dustin Hoffman
Dustin Hoffman hit with sexual harassment claims 03:42 PM | 2 Nov, 2017
LOS ANGELES - Anna Graham Hunter (a Los Angeles based writer) has come forward with the claim that Dustin Hoffman ...
Hoffman, while apologizing for putting Hunter “in an uncomfortable situation”, claimed that her story was “not reflective of who I am.”
Mr. Oliver questioned Dustin Hoffman’s claim saying "I believe what she wrote, yes. Because there's no point in her lying."
To everyone’s shocked Dustin replied with, “Well, there is a point in her not bringing this up for 40 years,” thus defending himself.
Needless to say, Oliver was quite disappointed with Dustin’s attitude.
The Washington Post, published a part of the conversation:
Social media has come out in support of Oliver, praising his course of action.
It is so rare to see someone challenging - really challenging - someone powerful, live, about such allegations that it's startling to watch this. Good one John Oliver. https://t.co/ryE9NRRrVP— Louise Ridley (@LouiseRidley) December 5, 2017
The thing I find most fascinating about John Oliver calling out Dustin Hoffman to his face is watching a person who has spent his life surrounded by sycophants, telling him only what he wants to hear, being so flummoxed by the novelty of truth.— Mrs. Betty Bowers (@BettyBowers) December 5, 2017
