Hilarie Burton took to Twitter yesterday to respond to a fan’s tweet that mentioned a groping incident involving Ben Affleck over a decade ago.
The fan pointed out that the sexual assault took place during a filming of MTV’s Total Request Live, which Burton hosted in 2003.
Burton confirmed that the sexual assault did indeed occur by saying, “I didn’t forget.”
The news comes after Affleck posted a tweet yesterday condemning the actions of Harvey Weinstein, who Affleck has worked with in the past.
The Twitterverse didn’t seem to appreciate Affleck giving his two cents on the matter, largely due to Rose McGowan, a former co-star who said she told Affleck about Weinstein’s sexual advances — and Affleck responded by saying “I told him to stop doing that.”
See Rose’s tweet here.
It sounds like Affleck may have been better off had he not commented on the Harvey Weinstein accusations.
