John Oliver got into argument with Dustin Hoffman over sexual harassment

Vastavam web: Popular host John Oliver got into a heated argument with veteran Hollywood actor Dustin Hoffman over sexual harassment allegations against the Oscar- winning actor at a film panel.The duo was a part of a panel at the screening of the political drama “Wag the Dog” when Oliver questioned Hoffman about recent accusations levelled against him by author Anna Graham Hunter, when she was a minor while working as a production assistant on the 1985 TV film “Death of a Salesman”.
Zeitchik added, after sometime, Hoffman touched upon the debate and accused Oliver of being biased and “unquestionably believing accusers”.CBS News correspondent Laura Podesta tweeted, “‘You’ve made this incredible assumption about me, sir,’ Hoffman said to Oliver. Oliver says it’s something he had to bring it up before we watch the film #wagthedog.” Interestingly, “Wag The Dog”, narrates the story of a spin doctor (Robert De Niro) from Washington, D C, who barely days before a presidential election, distracts the electorate from a sex scandal by hiring a Hollywood film producer, played by Hoffman, to construct a fake war with Albania.
Last month, in an article written for The Hollywood Reporter, Hunter opened up about the episode, along with the notes she took as a teenager detailing what transpired on the sets in the fives weeks she was there.
