Jon Hamm spoke — we believe — for the first time about that hazing incident from his college days that resurfaced in 2015, prior to the final season of Mad Men. Recall that Hamm was acused for fairly shitty behavior — he allegedly shoved a guy’s face in dirt, set his jeans on fire, and struck him with a paddle — and as a result, his frat was shut down. “It was a bummer of a thing that happened,” Hamm told Esquire. “I was essentially acquitted. I wasn’t convicted of anything. I was caught up in a big situation, a stupid kid in a stupid situation, and it’s a fucking bummer.” (Esquire)
