During his conversation with Piers Morgan, the psychologist opened up about how he felt following Wide’s comments and the “insane” character that was based on him.
"This insane man, this pseudo-intellectual hero to the incel community, incel being these weirdo loner men who are despicable in many ways. Is that you? Are you the intellectual hero to these people?,” asked Piers.
"Sure, why not. People have been after me for a long time because I have been speaking to young men, what a terrible thing to do,” he replied.
“I thought the marginalised were supposed to have a voice?” Peterson tearfully continued.
Dr Peterson also complained that Wilde’s comments were “kind of low level.”
“When Olivia Wilde made those comments, the first thing I did was go look at the preview for a movie, which I quite liked. I thought, ‘I would go see that movie probably.’ And perhaps I will. It didn’t really bother me.”
And it seems, the psychologist is seeing the “humour” of the situation. Explaining that Chris Pine was a “very good-looking man” to play a version of him.
