WATCH: Matt Damon Explains Racial Diversity to Black Filmmaker from a Couch of White Men

According to Matt Damon, the racial diversity quota of a film set is substantial as long as it’s seen on-camera. 

Damon is receiving backlash from the black filmmaking community for a comment that he made on a recent episode of Project Greenlighthis reality show-love child with buddy Ben Affleck.

In conversation with the producer of Dear White People Effie Brown regarding the director’s treatment of a black character in her film, Damon “whitesplains” his definition of racial diversity as such:

“When we’re talking about diversity, you do it in the casting of the film, not in the casting of the show.”

And the internet was not pleased.
