He wrote on Instagram: "In support of the women & men who are leading this fight, I will be adopting the Inclusion Rider for all projects produced by my company Outlier Society".

The inclusion rider agreement will be adopted by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in production deals they plan to make in the future through their company.

Google searches for "inclusion rider" spiked in the wake of McDormand's speech and there were thousands of tweets mentioning the term in the 20 minutes after her speech concluded.

Under their Pearl Street Films banner, Affleck and Damon have produced films such as Manchester By the Sea, Jason Bourne, and Live By Night, among other features and television series, and are now working on Matt Reeves' The Batman (with Affleck still set to star as the Caped Crusader) and Affleck's remake of Witness for the Prosecution.

The producer pair go goodwill hunting.

Rose McGowan claims in her autobiography courageous that she told Affleck that Weinstein had raped her when they were working together in 1997.

Aside from Qualcomm and Broadcom , there are two other manufacturers that are no doubt following this development with interest. There are many possible targets there, many of which would match well with Broadcom's existing product portfolio.

Meanwhile, Damon also claimed he was unaware of Weinstein's alleged misconduct.

In the segment, Damon said that diversity should be handled in "the casting of the film, not in the casting of the show".

A short time later he stirred another controversy when he talked to a journalist about perceptions that he and his long-time movie star friend Ben Affleck were gay.

After the scandal broke, Affleck said: "I knew he was sleazy and kind of a bully, but unfortunately that wasn't uncommon". And sexuality is a huge part of that.

Damon has previously faced criticism for comments he made about diversity in filmmaking. "That is an ongoing conversation that we all should be having". "And so the fact that I just learned that after 35 years of being in the film business... we're not going back".
