Following comments, people really really want Matt Damon booted from movie

Matt Damon might want to keep his mouth shut, otherwise, he could very well soon be out of a job.  According to an online petition, the actor now faces more than 20,000 signature-demands to be removed from Oceans 8 (presumably, it has something to do with these comments about sexism and assault in Hollywood). The problem came from a recent ABC interview, where, Damon tried to quash the discussion about sexual assault in Hollywood taking away the blame from those that actually assault others. "There's a difference between patting someone on the butt, and, ehum, rape"  Damon reportedly said in the interview. See the original interview, here.   Meanwhile, no word from producers of Oceans 8 on whether or not Damon will be booted from the film entirely.
