‘The Tonight Show’ Cancels Norm Macdonald Appearance Over Controversial Comments

Comedian Norm Macdonald’s controversial comments about the Me Too movement have cost him an appearance on “The Tonight Show.”

Macdonald was set to appear on the late-night program on Tuesday night, but the plug was pulled after he told The Hollywood Reporter that he was “happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a bit.”

A “Tonight Show” spokesperson said it “decided to cancel” Macdonald’s appearance in light of his comments in the press and “out of sensitivity to our audience.”

“There are very few people that have gone through what they have, losing everything in a day,” Macdonald said. “Of course, people will go, ‘What about the victims?’ But you know what? The victims didn’t have to go through that.”

Macdonald later apologized via Twitter:

His new comedy program, “Norm Macdonald Has a Show,” debuts on Netflix on Sept. 14.
