Matt Damon's father dies after a long battle with cancer

The actor's father has died at the age of 74 due to cancer.

Speaking to Extra, Matt said: 'It's been a slow unfolding; my dad's sick, so that's been a process we're going through.

According to The Sun, the Good Will Hunting actor's father passed away on 14 December after battling multiple myeloma, a specific form of bone marrow cancer, for seven years.

'Because a handful of Twitter users don't like it, the rest of us have to pretend that Matt Damon is somehow guilty of something terrible, ' Carlson said on his show. Many are using the petition as a tool to share their displeasure with the popular actor's comments about allegations of sexual harassment in Hollywood.

'As a woman I support Matt DAmon whole heartedly [sic],' wrote one fan.

"Damon's inclusion would trivialize the serious nature of the charges against sexual abusers like Weinstein-a show [of] massive disrespect for the courageous women speaking out", the petition states.

The actor also came under fire last week, for telling ABC News that there was a "spectrum of behavior" and a "difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?" "Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn't be conflated." .

His ex-girlfriend Minnie Driver, who worked with him on 1997's Good Will Hunting, has publicly reacted to his comments.

The petition also mentions a 2004 New York Times profile of an Italian associate of Harvey Weinstein; a male producer who aided the film executive in his habitual abuse of women.
