Governor Cuomo is getting a lot of criticism Wednesday after what he says was a 'joke'.

He thought reporters were getting a bit too close to him in a hallway and said:

"I'm going to bring you all up on charges under the 'Me Too' movement", according to WGRZ.

When someone asked why he said that on Thursday he responded:

"I think it was an offhand comment. I walked out into the hallway and I was assaulted by the gaggle with pieces of equipment hitting me in all sorts of my anatomy and it was an offhand comment just to get them to move back," Cuomo said.
