John Oliver just went after Dustin Hoffman big time on sexual harassment at this Wag The Dog panel. Hoffman grew visibly uncomfortable. "You weren't there," he says to Oliver. "I'm happy I wasn't," Oliver replied.— Steven Zeitchik (@ZeitchikWaPo) December 5, 2017
“You’ve made an incredible assumption about me, sir,” Hoffman said, according to CBS’ Laura Podesta.
All hell has now broken loose on this Wag The Dog panel.

Podesta also noted that Hoffman claims he never met the woman who accused him.
