So Ben Affleck might have thought he was doing something good in responding to the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment claims, but the tables have now turned on him. Ben released a statement saying he was disgusted that a man he knew would abuse his power like that. That caused a Twitter storm from people claiming Ben acted quite similar at times, groping a young woman on MTV in 2003. Another woman, a Hollywood make-up artist, also claims she was groped by him in 2014. He has since responded to the video of him on TRL, apologizing to Hilarie Burton. He hasn’t commented otherwise.

I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize
