The past few days have shaken Hollywood as film mogul Harvey Weinstein was accused of many incidents of sexual harassment and three incidents of rape.
Many actors who have worked with him came forward and spoke against his actions including Ben Affleck who said, "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. 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 Twitter user replied to Ben's post and said, "Ben Affleck should’ve just kept quiet. Clearly, he wasn’t thinking about his daughters when he left them to gallivant with their nanny."
To which another Twitter user reminded us of an incident from years ago that occurred between Ben and Hilarie Burton. The Twitter user tweeted, "He also grabbed Hilarie Burton's breasts on TRL once. Everyone forgot though."
Hilarie Burton, who is popularly known as Peyton Sawyer from One Tree Hill replied to the tweet and said, "I didn't forget."
The Twitter user then said, "I’m so sorry that happened to you. It’s infuriating that people never bring up all the gross, predatory things he’s done."
Hilarie's reply to this was, "Seriously, thank you for that. I was a kid."
Hilarie also tweeted the video where the incident took place and said, "Girls. I'm so impressed with you brave ones. I had to laugh back then so I wouldn't cry. Sending love."
Ben took to his Twitter to publicly apologise to Hilarie and said, "I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize."
Makeup artist Annamarie Tendler and comedian John Mulaney's wife also recalled an incident where Ben allegedly groped her butt. Annamarie said, "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."
