Desmond Tutu said, "If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor."

An even stronger way to choose the side of the oppressor would be making concerted efforts to cover up the dark truth–a process Matt Damon seems to know all too well.

Newly unearthed information alleges that Damon helped keep early reports of Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct under wraps back in 2004. This scandal is reminiscent of sexual harassment allegations against Casey Affleck, which came to light earlier this year. Despite the accusations, Affleck managed to stay afloat and earn himself an Oscar–partly in thanks to Damon and Ben Affleck's support.

But does Damon choose to go even further than staying silent, and actually work to bury the stories of sexual predators?

20 years ago, Weinstein produced Good Will Hunting, the film that launched Damon and Ben Affleck's careers. (The movie also sort of launched Casey Affleck's career, too.) Weinstein definitely played a role in getting Damon and Affleck their big break–which could have to do with why Damon helped bury the Weinstein story 13 years ago.
