Hilarie Burton says Ben Affleck groped her on 'TRL'

When the fan replied to her about Affleck, telling her, "I'm so sorry that happened to you", Burton said, "Seriously, thank you for that".

Ben Affleck recently joined the growing chorus of Hollywood voices that have spoken out against Harvey Weinstein amid the deluge of sexual harassment claims levied against the executive.

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". Through various reports at media outlets such as The New Yorker and The New York Times, actors including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Asia Argento, Ashley Judd have come forward to detail their interactions with Harvey. To make matters worse, Affleck is now being DRAGGED as a hypocrite as he apparently groped actress Hilarie Burton without her consent back in the '00s!

Affleck and his brother Casey had been called out on Twitter for their silence by actress and alleged Weinstein victim Rose McGowan.

"@benaffleck "GODDAMNIT! I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT" you said that to my face".

After a fan suggested that Affleck should have "kept quiet", another Twitter user wrote, "He also grabbed Hilarie Burton's breasts on TRL once". The video doesn't show the incident, but a separate YouTube video does appear to capture the moment in question. "I don't know what to do so that it doesn't happen to others".

Asia Argento, an Italian film actress and director, claimed that Weinstein "forcibly performed oral sex on her" but that she refused to speak out because "he has crushed a lot of people".

Affleck has yet to respond to Burton's tweets, but if he does, expect him to say something about he was young and stupid at the time. She shared a video from the show where Affleck asks her how old she is, and she briefly describes the alleged groping incident.
