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."

Pinkvilla stop this campaign against hrithik...Stop posting this comments...hrithik didn't abuse her or forced her...
I know you won't post this...

Ben and Casey are known predators, they chase and hunt. Disgusting

Well, I bet all these things happen in Bollywood too, look at Akshay all the rumors of him and affair young actresses and even Shahrukh, aren't they are also adored like Ben Affleck? And, just because someone is A lister and has some good looks doesn't mean they aren't perverts!!! Plus, there are so many directors and producers that we arent aware of and many new comers most likely dont talk about this due to being taboo as India isn't open as like the West!! Just because no one is talking about in India as much doesnt mean, it's not happening there!!! In a way, look at Katrina, she had to press her breasts to some old guy in her first movie, and then she had to sleep with guy like Salman Khan who is 20+ plus older than her to further her career, in a way, it's casting couch too, maybe not full blown assault!! Only sheltered ones are the ones from well-known movie families, such as Alia, Kareena and others!

Even his brother is knowing to do the same things...the problem that the two Ben and his brother got an Oscars,rich and enjoying thier life despite all of this...
and pls don't compare kangana with this brave women...kangana after powerful married me for her own benefits...she the one who impose herself on them...
pls post don't be biased...thanks

oh please..stop abusing KR. Noone knows the truth.

oh so Kangana is the bad one here and so called married men are saints!!

Noone is clean in movie industry

And this is the same man (read Affleck)who was all out gun blazing against Trump for his crude remarks against women. Seems crude remarks are worse than groping in Mr. Affleck's book. A classic case of Pot calling the Kettle BLACK.

"c'mon galti ho jaati hai bache se, get over it." This is what people in India would say if Ben Affleck was an Indian actor.

That is exactly what Matt Damon and Ben Affleck said about Casey Affleck after he did all those things, and then Matt cast him in his movie too. Those guys are useless "bros".

Wait until mr. Hrithik will be exposed

Affleck has been videotaped on TV doing acting like a di** to non consenting women , that's proof in his face as he's been caught & the only reason for his half hearted apology . Whereas Hrithik was sent sleazy pics by Kangana clearly indicating that the woman concerned is very much into the him (& I am not even mentioning Rangoli's foul tweets here) - That's the big difference ! So women are allowed to behave like this to a man ?

If you think Hritik is the saint here..u r wrong my friend. Remember so many supported Kangana in the start of this so called battle. But now since she is head on with Roshan's people r taking their fraternity's side. Chor chor mausere bhai..sab kha rahe hain, hum bhi khaenge.

Nonsense ,if they wanted to take sides ,they'd have opened their mouths when it all started . Not a soul from within the industry or outside it spoke up taking his part, Sonam had supported Kangana in the beginning . If anything it was Kangana who played out her lil' Red Riding Hood surrounded by wolves role for the public. Hrithik is no dyed -in-the -wool babe in arms , but neither is Kangana . You have people in Bollywood with reputations stinking to the high heavens such as Subhash Ghai & RGV, people inside & outside know about what is happening . Everybody in Hollywood knew about Weinstein , it was an open secret for decades that the man was a vicious crocodile who preyed on women. Here , someone 's had an affair (& not a fling) for 7 continuous years in these days of camera phones & CCTVs with squat to show for it .

Bollywood copies hollywood in so many ways.. So why not this! When will gutsy actresses come forward?

uff Hrithik/Kangana/Rangoli fans will start here also

And in BW people still support the men in these cases

So when will bw actresses expose the male actors?

Kangana's been trying. Y'all ain't letting her :p

I hate him

Always preaching till a mirror is shown on their own actions...PV plz post

GROSS !!!!!!!
