35-year-old Hilarie Burton took to social media to bash actor Ben Affleck for allegedly groping her breast. After Affleck gave his two cents about the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal, one fan told Ben that he should have kept quiet about it considering he himself once groped Burton on TRL.
The said fan added that ‘Everyone forgot though,’ to which Hilarie replied: ‘I didn’t forget.’
The woman also tweeted a video from TRL in which she was talking about getting groped by Affleck back in 2003.
The incident that gathered a lot of backlash after resurfacing came after the actor wrote a lengthy post in which he blasted the producer.
‘I’m saddened, and angry 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. It’s completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this does not happen to others. We need to do better and protect 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,’ Affleck wrote.
But now, many people are slamming Ben as well for his seemingly insincere statement.
The Hollywood actor is yet to comment on the groping incident.
