Twitter Mock Meghan McCain & Her Marriage to Ben Domenech Following Controversial Comment about Matt Damon
At 50, Matt Damon is continuing to make changes to his life both as a father and as a man, and just recently, he spoke about a major change he's made, out of inspiration by his daughter.
Matt Damon, 50, opened up about how he recently stopped using the homophobic slur when referring to gay men. This change, he says, was inspired by his daughter after she spoke to him about it.
The "Good Will Hunting" star says he jokingly used the word at home, and his daughter wrote him a detailed treatise explaining why the word was not appropriate, and he has since made an effort to stop using it.
"The View" host Meghan McCain took to her Twitter to condemn Damon, saying how isolated and sheltered he was from reality. McCain, who has always locked horns with people, including her co-hosts on the show, did not, however, expect the reactions that followed.
Irate fans took to her comment section to air their opinions on her tweet, saying that the whole essence of putting up the tweet was to drive the numbers.
Others expressed their disapproval at McCain using the curse word, saying it takes away everything else she was trying to say. Another urged her to stop with the curse words saying:
"Clean your language, please. You are such a beautiful intelligent person. Keep it classy my dear. I like you as a person and I really do."
McCain has caused a rift with her co-hosts over time following her on-air spats with colleagues. The 36-year-old even recently missed a taping of the show, citing personal reasons.
A Twitter user also reminded McCain that she was not one to mock others over inappropriate remarks, seeing as her husband Ben Domenech was recently under fire for his homophobic remarks towards Seth Meyers.
Domenech seems to have gone off when Meyers questioned McCain following her invoking comments about Ilhan Omar, a Democratic Rep, about the California synagogue attacks.
She explained that she would be leaving due to burnout and being overworked.
"The Federalist" publisher took to his Twitter to condemn Meyers, saying he was an awful person and that his reputation was known in the industry.
He continued to say that Meyers was "utterly unfunny" and "untalented," adding that he shouldn't have gone after McCain like that concerning the anti-semitic concerns.
Even though he later apologized and deleted some of the tweets, it was not before he went off on Meyers, saying he deserved the mockery he receives from people. He would follow the tweets up with a half-baked apology that said:"
"I love my wife. I apologize for rage tweeting about how Seth Meyers treated her. I don't like him, I think he's a hack, but I shouldn't have done that. I'm sorry to anyone I offended."

Just this July, Meghan announced that she would be exiting "The View" after four years of co-hosting on the show. She credited the COVID-19 pandemic for the changes in how she wants to live her life, saying it is only one of the reasons she's leaving.
She says that it was a tough decision, and she had to consult a lot with her friends and family, adding that it took a lot of prayers, counsel, and thought before she could finally decide that it was the best way forward.
She credits her late dad, Senator John McCain, for encouraging her towards joining the talk show in 2017. She explained that she would be leaving due to burnout and being overworked.
McCain said she needed a break and urged people to stop romanticizing burnout. She emphasized the need to get good sleep, a good diet time with family and friends, and relaxation time, which she says she needs to do.
