#JohnOliver hammers #DustinHoffman over sex crimes

Screenshot 2017-12-05 at 06.52.49HBO host John Oliver hammered Dustin Hoffman on an allegation of sexual harassment and the actor fired back with a ferocious defense as a seemingly benign screening became an explosive conversation about Hollywood sexual misconduct on Monday night.

“This is something we’re going to have to talk about because … it’s hanging in the air,” Oliver said to Hoffman at the discussion, an anniversary screening of the film “Wag the Dog.” He was alluding to an allegation made by Anna Graham Hunter last month that Hoffman groped her and made inappropriate comments when she was a 17-year-old intern on the set of the 1986 TV movie “Death Of A Salesman.”

Hoffman said Oliver was not keeping an “open mind” and was “unquestionably believing accusers.” Oliver responded that he was unsatisfied by the actor’s statements and felt he was trivializing his accuser’s concerns.
