Norm Macdonald did not mince words when he previewed his upcoming Netflix show, stating that he’s “happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a little bit.”

“I’m happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a little bit. It used to be, ‘100 women can’t be lying.’ And then it became, ‘One woman can’t lie,'” the 58-year-old comedian shared Tuesday with the Hollywood Reporter while promoting his show, “Norm Macdonald Has a Show.”

“And that became, ‘I believe all women,'” he added. “And then you’re like, ‘What?’ Like that Chris Hardwick guy I really thought got the blunt end of the stick there.”

Macdonald continued, “The model used to be: admit wrongdoing, show complete contrition, and then we give you a second chance. Now it’s admit wrongdoing, and you’re finished. And so the only way to survive is to deny, deny, deny. That’s not healthy — that there is no forgiveness.”

“I do think that at some point it will end with a completely innocent person of prominence sticking a gun in his head and ending it,” the former “Saturday Night Live” star explained. “That’s my guess. I know a couple of people this has happened to.”

Macdonald then explained who he knew had lost “everything in a day.”

“Well, Louis [C.K.] and Roseanne [Barr] are the two people I know,” he added. “And Roseanne was so broken up [after her show’s reboot was canceled] that I got Louis to call her, even though Roseanne was very hard on Louis before that. But she was just so broken and just crying constantly. There are very few people that have gone through what they have — losing everything in a day.”

The comedian continued, “Of course, people will go, ‘What about the victims?’ But, you know what? The victims didn’t have to go through that.”

“Norm Macdonald Has a Show” hits the streaming site September 14.
