Comedian Amy Schumer was recently a guest on Katie Couric's podcast, where she weighed in on the #MeToo movement, and specifically addressed the recent Aziz Ansari story in which a woman who'd gone on a date with him said it was the "worst night of [her] life." On the podcast, Schumer, who calls Ansari a friend, said,
I don’t think anyone wants to see Aziz’s career ruined or his life ruined or anything like that, but that’s where people’s minds go. “They go, ‘Does he deserve this?’ And it’s really not about that. I think it’s about expressing and showing women that that behavior is not okay and not only can you leave, but you need to leave. Because then the women who come after you, you’re leaving a mark for them too.
