Amber Ruffin Responds to Allegations That She Punched Seth Meyers: “It Was a Different Time Back Then”

There have been a lot of public apologies recently from men whose history of sexual harassment and assault have finally come to light, so during last night’s Late Night, Seth Meyers welcomed writer Amber Ruffin to share the lessons she’s learned from them. After surprising Meyers with a swift punch to the face, Ruffin gets right to work, using instant-classic shitty men responses like “I categorically deny those allegations” and “I remember those events differently” to qualify her so-called apology. “I’m sorry…that your face feels punched.” “That’s not an apology,” Meyers responds. “Seth, it was a different time back then.”
