Following Hollywood Film maker,Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations and a lot of actresses coming out. Hollywood actor cum film maker,Ben Affleck took to his facebook page to condem Mr Harvey,he wrote; “I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades,”
“The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick,” he continued. “This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn’t happen to others. We need to do better at protecting our sisters, friends, co-workers and daughters. We must support those who come forward, condemn this type of behavior when we see it and help ensure there are more women in positions of power.”
A fan,Shanice Brim called him out for his behavior on MTV’s TRL (Total Request Live) where he groped actress,Hilarie Burton,35. The One Tree Hill alum confirmed the act and Ben replies on twitter;
“He also grabbed Hilarie Burton’s breasts on ‘TRL’ once. Everyone forgot though.”- Ms Brim
“I didn’t forget,” -Hilarie
“I’m so sorry that happened to you,” Brim replied.
“Seriously, thank you for that. I was a kid,” Burton replied.
Ben tweeted on Oct 11.
“I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize,”
I think is nice of Ben to apologize and quite gentle manly of him .For those of you calling Hilarie an attention seeker,really?! Do your homework. Besides a fan brought it up and Ben was sensible enough to know it was wrong,so grow up!
