Oh, shut up Judd Apatow. I always count down the seconds before this wannabe SJW goes to Twitter to join in on the next witch hunt. The talented writer-director has been very  vocally supportive of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements despite, hypocritically, not condemning his buddy James Franco.
Apatow has been blatantly quiet about the Franco accusations. but in a new interview, when finally  asked about this double standard, he quickly dodged it with a hypocritical response:

 “Well, I’m not going to go into all my conversations with everybody. Oddly enough, I know an enormous amount of accusers and people who are being accused. I feel like in brief articles you can’t really get into the depth that you need to in order to be thoughtful and honest about it. Everybody wants that because it’s all click bait, but these situations are very complicated and they raise an enormous amount of questions. That doesn’t mean I let anybody off the hook for anything, but they’re not simple. We have a long way to go to figure out how we want to handle all of it.”


Yeah, doesn't that say everything you need to know about the man? It's easy to condemn people that you don't necessarily have any affiliation to, but friends? God forbid touch that, let alone even say a few words about what they did might be wrong. Hypocrisy at its finest folks. Do I think James Franco deserves the hate he got after it was revealed that he had women on a movie set strip down for him? Well, he still denies it, so do most of the actors being accused, so what do I know.


To make matters worse, during the interview, Apatow still threw darts at director Terry Gilliam, who came under fire recently for comments he made about Harvey Weinstein and his accusers. Apatow said, “What is troubling about that is that [Gilliam] is basically saying that people were getting things out of their interactions with Harvey Weinstein, like it was some financial transaction for some of these people. When in fact, he doesn’t know anything about any of these situations. It’s a big leap to ‘this is how the business works and sometimes people get hurt but sometimes it works out for them.’ 
Judd Apatow’s documentary, “The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling,” premieres March 26 on HBO.
