Idris Elba's Answer to This #MeToo Question Is Drawing Praise

Idris Elba gave a great answer to a question about men during the #MeToo movement, and many social media users are praising him for his on-point response.

While doing an interview with The Times, the 46-year-old actor (who was recently named Sexiest Man Alive), was asked if it’s hard to be a man in Hollywood now that the #MeToo movement has come to light.

Idris‘ response? “It’s only difficult if you’re a man with something to hide.”

Shonda Rhimes took to social media to respond, writing, “See?,” while former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett wrote, “Listen up, fellas.”

Other social media reactions include users writing, “That’s it right there! It’s like Duh!,” “Exactly,” and “In one short sentence, he shows he isn’t threatened by it, understands it, and supports women.”
