Hollywood hypocrisy runs rampant! Not less that a day after Ben Affleck went nuclear on Harvey Weinstein for his lewd and misogynistic behavior against women, he was called out for exactly the same.
What an embarrassing saturation for Affleck as he now bows and scrapes for forgiveness.
FOX News reports his apology:
Ben Affleck apologized to actress Hilarie Burton for groping her during an appearance on “TRL” in 2003.
“I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize,” Affleck tweeted Wednesday.
I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize

The actor was accused of groping Burton on Tuesday, hours after he said he was “saddened and angry” over allegations that Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein raped and sexually harassed women over decades.
And then he was exposed for this:
I didn't forget.

Seriously, thank you for that. I was a kid.

In this video, Burton describes how Affleck takes liberties with her.
But that’s not all. Affleck has a history of groping women.
While promoting the 2004 film “Jersey Girl,” Affleck, who seemed to be intoxicated, sat down with Canadian TV personality Anne-Marie Losique. During the interview, Affleck spends the majority of his time touching her, having her sit on his lap and trying to convince her to take her shirt off.
And again, Affleck has his hands all over Losique and takes all kinds of liberties, in a very Harvey Weinstein kind of way.
And that’s not it! Another woman, Rose McGowan, a victim of Weinstein, called Affleck out for lying in his disdainful statement about Weinstein.

Actress Rose McGowan, is among the women accusing Weinstein, also blasted Affleck calling him a liar and claiming the actor knew of Weinstein’s behavior but remained silent.
Kind of makes you wonder just how many Hollywood elites are due to be exposed in the very near future. As Weinstein addresses his sex addictions in Europe, maybe Affleck can join him and they can get rehab advice from Roman Polanski.
