This whole Harvey Weinstein thing has started a beautiful shit storm of fuckery in Hollywood that I am totally here for. You’ve got 90% of Hollywood condemning him, and randoms like Lindsay fucking Lohan and Donna Karen defending him (don’t get me started), and then you have guys like Ben Affleck.
Ben Affleck is the kind of guy who I have no fucking clue why he got himself involved in this shit. Given his own questionable history with women and his brother, Casey, who had to pay out an undisclosed amount of money to women in sexual harassment cases, you’d THINK homeboy would’ve just kept his mouth shut during this whole Weinstein scandal. But nope.
Like most of Hollywood, Ben Affleck initially posted a message on social media about how he was shocked and we all need to be condemning Harvey Weinstein’s behaviour. Rose McGowan was quick to jump on Twitter and call bullshit on Ben’s whole “Oh, I didn’t know act”, tweeting:
“@benaffleck ‘GODDAMNIT! I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT’ you said that to my face. The press conf I was made to go to after assault. You lie.”
Not long after Rose’s tweet, another (not famous, so god knows I can’t recall their twitter handle) twitter user reminded us all how back in the early-2000s, Ben Affleck “grabbed Hilarie Burton’s breasts on TRL once. Everyone forgot though.”
Hilarie Burton a.k.a. my beloved Peyton Sawyer from “One Tree Hill” responded to the tweet with a very simple “I didn’t forget.”
The funny thing is, this isn’t some allegation, this happened on TRL! ON LIVE TELEVISION! Back before she was the Queen of Cool on my fave American teen drama (fuck, I love One Tree Hill), Hilarie Burton was a VJ on TRL. She was interviewing Ben Affleck for his movie Pearl Harbor and he legit put his arm around her and tweaked her boob! To make matters pervier, a few minutes later he was all like “How old are you? Like 19?” WTF dude?!
Affleck recently tweeted an apology to Burton, but the dude kind of has a history of treating the women interviewing him like sex objects.
Back in 2004, and also ON CAMERA, Affleck asked Canadian journalist Anne-Marie Losique to expose herself while she sitting on his lap during promotion for that shit movie Jersey Girl. Affleck says: “These breasts are really firm, suspiciously firm, they are like two giant stones.” He then goes on to say “Don’t make me look like I am retarded! I look like I have cerebral palsy.”
The fuck is up with the Affleck brothers, man? Were they secretly raised by Trump? Either way, homeboy (I’m starting to sound like Bella Hadid) better watch out, because Peyton Sawyer is now married to Neagan from The Walking Dead, so Ben Affleck should probably keep his hands to himself….and stop playing Batman, you’re not good at it!
