After shoving his foot in his own mouth so far that he has a ratty pair of sneakers lodged in his small intestine, Matt Damon vowed to listen more and talk less. Which is really words most of us should live by. But then arose a topic we needed—no demanded!—Damon weigh in on: Ben Affleck’s (clearly not for a movie) back tattoo. (Bless his heart!)
Damon appeared on The Daily Show to promote Water.org and WaterEquity, organizations dedicated to bringing clean water to those in need. But Trevor Noah did right by the world by taking a moment to address the Phoenix in the room. And Damon gave a sage yet suitably silly response.
“It’s not one man’s job to tell another man what he can do to his back. I support him in all of his artistic expression.”

It’s such a shame Damon died via Me Too mob. RIP.
