Norm Macdonald is apologizing for his apology. After initially coming under fire for saying he was "happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a bit," among other things, the comedian has come under more fire for saying "you'd have to have Down syndrome to not feel sorry for [sexual harassment victims]." On the View Thursday, he explained that the comment came during an appearance on the Howard Stern Show, and that "there is a thing with Howard where there’s a recklessness in the studio," per Variety. "There used to be a word we would all say to mean stupid that we wouldn’t say any more. You know the word I’m talking about? Stupidly I was about to say that word," but he stopped and subbed in something "equally [offensive]." He said it was "unforgivable," and a "terrible, terrible thing for me to say."
