How Matt Damon's Daughter Made Him Stop Using Homophobic Slur

Renowned Hollywood actor Matt Damon has revealed how he stopped using a homophobic slur after he was cautioned by his daughter.

The Bourne Identity star made the disclosure in a recent interview with The Sunday Times, saying he ditched the word months ago.

"The word that my daughter calls the ‘f-slur for a homosexual was commonly used when I was a kid, with a different application", Damon said. "I made a joke, months ago, and got a treatise from my daughter.”

"She left the table. I said, ‘Come on, that’s a joke! I say it in the movie Stuck on You!’ She went to her room and wrote a very long, beautiful treatise on how that word is dangerous.

"I said, 'I retire the f-slur!' I understood."

Speaking further, Damon addressed the backlash he faced due to his previous comments about disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Damon's statement in 2017 had been: "As the father of four daughters, this is the kind of sexual predation that keeps me up at night."

In the interview with The Sunday Times, he stated, "I understand. It’s a fair point. Anybody should be offended by that behaviour.”
