“It’s always bad when you have to apologize for the apology,” said Norm Macdonald on ABC’s The View yesterday, regarding a comment he’d made on Howard Stern’s radio show. Macdonald had been trying to walk back comments he made in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter about the #MeToo movement that got him booted from a Tonight Show appearance (including suggesting he was “happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a little bit”), when he told Stern, “You’d have to have Down syndrome” not to feel sorry for victims of sexual abuse. Macdonald, set to host Norm Macdonald Has a Show on Netflix, told The View hosts as soon as the words left his mouth he knew he’d said something “unforgivable.”
