Matt Damon revealed he only recently stopped using the "f-slur for a homosexual."
In an interview with The Sunday Times, Damon said his daughter told him he shouldn’t be using the word after he made a “joke.”
“She left the table. I said, ‘Come on, that’s a joke! I say it in the movie Stuck on You!’ She went to her room and wrote a very long, beautiful treatise on how that word is dangerous. I said, ‘I retire the f-slur!’ I understood,” Damon said.
The 50-year-old actor was met with criticism online.
"I want to know what word Matt Damon has replaced f***** with,” actor Billy Eichner said.
Damon has four daughters. He did not say which one called him out for using the derogatory word.
