Twitter Blasts Henry Cavill After He Says #MeToo Has Made Him Hesitant To Pursue Women For Fear Of Being ‘Called A Rapist Or Something’

Maybe not the best thing to say there, Henry Cavill

Speaking to GQ Australia this week, the Man of Steel unleashed some seriously controversial comments about the #MeToo Movement, and how it’s changed his dating life.

And now, Twitter is absolutely letting him have it over the controversial comments!

Talking about the recent girl power movement and sexual misconduct across society, Cavill informed readers of GQ that he is now hesitant to pursue relationships out of fear of being “called a rapist or something.”

The Superman actor acknowledged that “stuff has to change” in society, but then he went and made this very controversial and outright bizarre comment about how it’s changed how he pursues women (below):

“There’s something wonderful about a man chasing a woman. There’s a traditional approach to that, which is nice. I think a woman should be wooed and chased, but maybe I’m old-fashioned for thinking that. It’s very difficult to do that if there are certain rules in place. Because then it’s like: ‘Well, I don’t want to go up and talk to her, because I’m going to called a rapist or something.’ So you’re like, ‘Forget it, I’m going to call an ex-girlfriend instead, and just go back to a relationship, which never really worked. I’m someone in the public eye, and if I go and flirt with someone, then who knows what’s going to happen? Now? Now you really can’t pursue someone further than, ‘No’. It’s like, ‘OK, cool’. But then there’s the ‘Oh why’d you give up?’ and it’s like ‘Well, because I didn’t want to go to jail?'”

Wow.

That’s, uh, a lot to take in.
