DON McLEAN: Speaks out about #MeToo movement
Don McLean is apparently no fan of the #MeToo movement.
In an interview on a Louisville, Kentucky public radio station, the "American Pie" icon -- whose marriage unraveled several years ago after a spousal abuse arrest -- said it's wrong to compare it to the Vietnam War protests at which he once performed. He complains, "There’s a lot of disingenuousness around now. I think it was more sincere when we were dealing with our friends and buddies being killed in Vietnam."
McLean criticizes #MeToo as a trendy showbiz thing. "To have people in Hollywood all dressing in black as if they’ve suddenly discovered the casting couch after 60 years is a laugh."
