Ben Affleck Groping TV Host Video Resurfaces; Actor Apologises


Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who recently condemned producer Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct, has instead found himself being accused of hypocrisy. Soon after he released a statement calling Weinstein’s behaviour “unacceptable”, actress Rose McGowan accused him of lying on Twitter.

Now, Hilarie Burton, has opened up about how Affleck groped her on MTV’s Total Request Live, back in 2008. The whole incident resurfaced when a Twitter user reminded the public about that incident and how there’s a video of it too.

Burton said she never forgot and that she had to laugh it off even though the whole incident left her angry.

The video features Affleck going in for a hug but touching her left breast on camera, which she calls out. Later, a young Burton says that she’d prefer a high-five over a “tweakage” of the breasts.

Affleck has since apologised for the incident.

Amid all this, another alleged victim, Annamarie Tendler, wife of comedian John Mulaney, accused the actor of groping her at a Golden Globes party in 2014.

Affleck is yet to comment on this.
