The Bourne Identity actor later retracted and said he never actually said the slur, and merely shared with his daughter how it used to be a casual and often used word not too long ago, even used in a 2003 movie he starred in.
‘I not only agreed with her but thrilled at her passion, values and desire for social justice,’ said Damon in a statement after the controversy.
His remarks especially infuriated many because his latest movie, Stillwater, which is based in Amanda Knox’s wrongful murder conviction in Italy, featured a queer character.
Damon was cast as the father of Allison, a lesbian woman trying to prove her innocence after being accused of killing her girlfriend while studying in France.
