Roman Polanski: #MeToo is "collective hysteria"

Oscar-winning filmmaker Roman Polanski says the #MeToo movement that sheds light on sexual misconduct of powerful men in Hollywood is “collective hysteria” and “total hypocrisy.”…

He said everyone is trying to sign up to #MeToo “chiefly out of fear” and compared it to North Korea’s public mourning for its leaders that is so intensive that “you can’t stop laughing.” He did not explain further.
