Author and media personality Jordan Peterson got emotional when commenting on Olivia Wilde’s recent comments about him.
Peterson visited morgan piers uncensored on Wednesday, where host Piers Morgan asked if Wilde had told him Interview magazine that Chris Pine’s villainous character in his film do not worry honey is based on Peterson. In his interview, posted online earlier this month, Wilde called Peterson “this crazy man” who is a “pseudo-intellectual hero to the incel community,” referring to men who identify as involuntary celibate and are known to express negativity. towards women on platforms. including Reddit.
After Morgan asked if it’s fair to describe Peterson as a hero to men who are “despicable in so many ways,” the guest replied, “Sure, why not. People have been after me for a long time because I’ve been talking to disgruntled young people, what a terrible thing to do, that is.” After a long pause in which his eyes seemed to fill with tears, Peterson said: “I thought the marginalized were supposed to have a voice.”
He continued: “It is very difficult to understand how demoralized people are, and certainly many young people are in that category. And you get these casual insults: ‘These incels.’ What does that mean? Well, these men don’t know how to make themselves attractive to women, who are very demanding. And good for them, women, be demanding. That’s your gift, man. Demand high standards of men from him. That seems fine to me. But all these men who are alienated, are alone and don’t want to do anything, and everyone insults them.”
During his earlier meeting with Maggie Gyllenhaal to InterviewWilde said that incels are “disenfranchised, mostly white men, who believe they have the right to have sex with women.” He added that Peterson “is someone who legitimizes certain aspects of his movement because he’s a former professor, he’s an author, he wears a suit, so they feel like this is a real philosophy that needs to be taken seriously.”
Peterson went on to tell Morgan that he wasn’t particularly bothered by Wilde’s comments. “As far as criticism goes, that was kind of low-level,” he said. “When Olivia Wilde made those comments, the first thing I did was go see the preview of her movie, which I quite liked. I thought I’d go see that movie, probably, and maybe I will. It really didn’t bother me.”
As for inspiring Pine’s role as Frank in the much-debated film that also stars Harry Styles and Florence Pugh, Peterson quipped, “He’s a very handsome man, and that seems fine.”
