"It was a very specific time. It was right as the internet was starting," Jason said.

"We had that whole scene with the internet camera — which, by the way, would never get made now," he continued.

"It would be unacceptable what that represents, but at the time I remember reading the script and reading that part and being shocked that there was cameras on computers! That's what I took away from it originally!"

Shannon Elizabeth, the actress who played the girl in the scene, has made a similar comment.

“If this had come out after the #MeToo movement, there would definitely be a problem. I think that it would have gone down differently," she said.

What do you think? Would the scene be in bad taste now, or are people just more sensitive? Let us know in the comments!
