Macdonald anchored the Saturday Night Live news from 1994 to 1998. His series Norm Macdonald Has a Show is to premiere on Netflix Sept. 14. He described the program as a talk show, but one where he picks the guests, because It's hard for me to be curious about people I'm not curious about, he told B&C.

Macdonald made his comments in The Hollywood Reporter, including that he was happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a little bit, and that the public should show a bit more forgiveness for the likes of C.K., who admitted to masturbating in front of women who did not want to witness that, and Barr, who posted a racist tweet. Macdonald wrote for the original Roseanne.

He wrote on Twitter, Roseanne and Louis have both been very good friends of mine for many years. They both made terrible mistakes and I would never defend their actions. If my words sounded like I was minimizing the pain that their victims feel to this day, I am deeply sorry.

NBC said it cancelled Macdonald's appearance out of sensitivity to our audience.

The New York Times said Netflix did not respond to a query about whether Macdonald's show will launch as planned.
