Sexgate: another woman accuses Ben Affleck of groping her butt

This post piggybacks on DCG’s post this morning, “The downfall of Hollyweird stars begins: Ben Affleck apologizes for groping Hilarie Burton“.

On Tuesday, October 10, 2017, actor Ben Affleck hypocritically said that he was “made sick” by allegations that Hellywood mogul Harvey Weinstein had raped and sexually harassed women over the course of decades, and called on his fellow Hollyweirdos to “condemn this type of behavior when we see it.”

A fan then accused Affleck of similar behavior, tweeting that Affleck had “also grabbed Hilarie Burton’s breasts on TRL once.”

In 2013, Affleck was 31 years old and in the midst of a 3-year affair with actress Jennifer Lopez, whom he planned to marry on September 14, 2013.

Actress Hilarie Burton thanked the fan and confirmed that Affleck indeed had grabbed her breasts in 2013 when she was just “a kid,” never mind that a 21-year-old adult is hardly a kid.

So Affleck tweeted an apology yesterday, that “I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize.”

Jessica Sager reports for Page Six, Oct. 12, 2017, that mere hours after Affleck’s apology to Burton, another woman has come forth accusing the actor of touching her inappropriately.

Makeup artist Annamarie Tendler, who’s married to former “Saturday Night Live” writer-turned-comedian John Mulaney, tweeted Wednesday night:

“I would also love to get an apology from Ben Affleck who grabbed my ass at a Golden Globes party in 2014. He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack. I guess he tried to play it like he was politely moving me out of the way and oops touched my butt instead of my lower back? Like most women in these situations I didn’t say anything but I have thought a lot about what I’d say if I ever saw him again.”

Tendler’s account is corroborated by comedy writer Jen Statsky, who said that Affleck had also grabbed the butts of “multiple” other women at the Golden Globes party. Statsky tweeted:

“I was also at this party and *multiple* friends had this same exact experience.”

This will snowball. As in the case of Harvey Weinstein, even more women will now come forth accusing Affleck of inappropriate sexual touching.

It’s popcorn time!

The downfall of Hollyweird stars begins: Ben Affleck apologizes for groping Hilarie Burton

Birds of a feather…

No doubt, Hollyweird PR agents are scurrying around doing major damage control right now. Good. Let all those Hollyweird hypocrites face the wrath of their despicable actions.

FYI: Ben Affleck has several projects in the works, see here. #BoycottHollywood!

From Fox News: Ben Affleck apologized to actress Hilarie Burton for groping her during an appearance on “TRL” in 2003. “I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize,” Affleck tweeted Wednesday.

The actor was accused of groping Burton on Tuesday, hours after he said he was “saddened and angry” over allegations that Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein raped and sexually harassed women over decades.

Affleck wrote Tuesday that the news about the man who helped create his career “made me sick” and that we must “condemn this type of behavior when we see it.”

A fan then accused Affleck of similar behavior tweeting, “[Affleck] also grabbed Hilarie Burton’s breasts on TRL once. Everyone forgot though.”

Burton chimed in tweeting, “I didn’t forget.” Her husband, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, played the father of Ben Affleck’s character in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

The fan wrote back, “I’m so sorry that happened to you. It’s infuriating that people never bring up all the gross, predatory things he’s done.”

Burton thanked the fan for speaking up adding “I was a kid” when Affleck grabbed her breast during a 2003 “TRL” appearance.

A rep for Affleck did not return Fox News’ request for comment.

Actress Rose McGowan, is among the women accusing Weinstein, also blasted Affleck calling him a liar and claiming the actor knew of Weinstein’s behavior but remained silent.

“@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,” McGowan tweeted.

McGowan also called out Affleck’s brother, actor Casey Affleck who has been accused of sexual assault, on Twitter Monday writing, “Ben Affleck Casey Affleck, how’s your morning boys?”

Casey Affleck recently faced intense public scrutiny for a past civil sexual harassment lawsuit. He made headlines ealier this year after reports surfaced that two women had filed lawsuits against him for sexual assault on the set of the 2009 film “I’m Still Here.” Both suits were settled out of court.

Casey Affleck addressed the allegations in March 2017 in a statement to the Boston Globe.

“I believe that any kind of mistreatment of anyone for any reason is unacceptable and abhorrent, and everyone deserves to be treated with respect in the workplace and anywhere else,” Affleck said. “There’s really nothing I can do about it other than live my life the way I know I live it and to speak to what my own values are and how I try to live by them all the time.”
