Reacting to the same, George Cloney spoke in length about the rant on Howard Stern’s radio show. He said that Tom Crusie did not overreact and he feels that whatever Tom did was not wrong at all. “Well, he didn’t overreact because it is a problem.” he went on to say that he would have acted in the same manner but that is just not his way of dealing with things. He, however, thinks people have to be responsible in the current situation.

“You’re in a position of power and it’s tricky. You do have a responsibility for everybody else and he’s absolutely right about that. If the production goes down, a lot of people lose their jobs. I understand why he did it. He’s not wrong at all about that. You know, I just, I don’t know that I would have done it quite that personally, but I don’t know all the circumstances so maybe he had it 10 or 15 times before,” Clooney added.
