Matt Damon says he never used 'f-slur' in his 'personal life': 'I stand with the LGBTQ+ community'

The “Stillwater” actor, 50, clarified an idea that he had only just stopped using the “f-slur” after he was admonished by one of his daughters. Damon is quoted in a Sunday Times interview as saying the offensive slur was “commonly used when I was a kid, with a different application.”

He maintained that his daughter had actually written him a “treatise” on “how that word is dangerous.”

Now, in a memorandum to Variety, Damon carefully clarified his statements and firmly pressed that he has never used the word in his “personal life” and does not “use slurs of any kind.”
