Weinstein Protege’ Ben Affleck Apologizes for Groping Actress…

Breitbart Media has a good framing for the ongoing Hollywood sexploitation crisis.  Think about the decades of perversion and sexual exploitation and the scope of the victims within the industry.  Hundreds of thousands of examples of harassment, forced sexual encounters, rape etc., exist and could become public.

The Weinstein charges are only the tip of the iceberg. The corporate entertainment industry is intertwined with the corporate media industry.

The financial risk is exponential.

[…] This is Hollywood’s greatest fear realized, the fear that the floodgates against others will open up and every alleged harasser will be dragged kicking and screaming into the sunlight. Affleck is a major player; an Oscar-winning director and Warner Brothers’ Batman, a hugely expensive franchise. He is also a high-profile Democrats, just like Harvey.

This is already the biggest scandal in Hollywood’s long, sordid history, Second place is not even close. But if even more women are now encouraged to come forward against other big names, the entire industry could be damaged beyond comprehension.

The same is true for the multinational corporations who employed these alleged harassers, the Walt Disney Company, for instance. Major corporate liability is definitely on the table.

(Daily Mail) Hilarie Burton claims she was groped by Ben Affleck during his appearance on TRL in 2003.

The former host of the show made the shocking allegations on Tuesday night, just hours after Affleck made a statement condemning Harvey Weinstein’s alleged abusive actions in his sexual assault and harassment scandal.

In it he said he was ‘saddened and angry’ over the ‘sickening’ claims.

Affleck’s statement was quickly slammed by a number of people – including Rose McGowan who called Affleck a liar.

When a fan tweeted that Affleck might as well have ‘kept quiet,’ another Twitter user wrote: ‘He also grabbed Hilarie Burton’s breasts on TRL once. Everyone forgot though

The One Tree Hill Star then surprised the Twitter thread by interjecting with: ‘I didn’t forget.’

Actress Rose McGowan is also publicly attacking Affleck as a liar over his statement Tuesday where he appeared to claim that Weinstein’s behavior was something he was unaware of until now.

    In light of Ben Affleck’s tepid rebuke of longtime collaborator Harvey Weinstein and the revelation that he groped actress Hilarie Burton on “TRL,”this 2004 interview on Canadian television promoting the Miramax film “Jersey Girl” looks especially damning.

    “They would like the show better if you did it topless, wouldn’t they?” Affleck asks The Box reporter Anne-Marie Losique while he holds her on his lap. “That’s a lovely perfume you have on. You usually show a lot more cleavage than this, what’s the story?”

    When she responds that it’s Sunday morning, Affleck really ups the creep ante.

    “That never stopped you before, from getting them titties out,” the then 32-year-old Affleck said. “Who you trying to fool, Sunday morning? You should be in church with that rack on display.”

        It’s interesting that because of the avalanch of stories now coming out about Harvey and the disgusting culture of Hollywood, there will probably be a lot more Hollywood heavyweights that are implicated in stuff like this.

        Rose McGowan is on the warpath, and just might take out more than a few hollywood abusers and hypocrites. Hollywood women seem poised to use this moment to get some power for themselves.

They started out at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School and latched on to local Boston University commie Howard Zinn. They used their Leftist butt kissing and minimal talents to get to Hollyweird. Damon loves to ignorantly opine about the dangers of school choice and every other canned Lefty obsession. Affleck is even dumber and is a Weinstein in the making. Let’s hope all these low grade Caligulas eat each other.

    There is so much of pay-backs in this story, so seemingly packaged in time-release capsules. Someone is trying to undo someone or something with this story and the target feels to be far larger than Harvey Weinstein. And the women piling on seem to be all past peak career, so for them, nothing to lose beyond momentary ill-fame. I just think this is an IO operation against a target that is not obvious and has wealth far exceeding that possessed by the people named so far, either singly or combined.

    One fact leading me to that conclusion is this: that much sex does not exist without comparable amounts of drugs besides alcohol, and no reporting that I have seen touches upon that fact. So this is all too contrived and for a purpose not obvious and well beyond the named personalities.

        Information Operation, an element of properly-conducted warfare. It is similar to propaganda but, properly done, far more multi-directional. At best, IO gets inside an enemy’s OODA Loop (duckduckgo-able), to destroy their ability to see reality and address it factually. Thus, in war, the more the IO success, the less the friendly blood loss and treasure spend.

            It’s a way of describing how people react to things originally coined by an Air Force colonel whose name is escaping me. To ” get inside the loop” is to act more rapidly than the enemy can react, keeping them in the observe and orient stages so their eventual reactions to your actions are ineffective.

    AI International Holdings fronted a $45 million loan to TWC last year. We’ve learned AI sent a letter to TWC and their lawyers at O’Melveny & Myers Tuesday, demanding that the money be returned pronto.

    AI says in its letter, “The dismissal of Harvey Weinstein from his position as co-chairman” constitutes a “material adverse change” … allowing them to demand immediate repayment of the loan.

    I have separated myself from Hollywood so much that when this scandal started breaking I thought, “Harvey Weinstein??? Isn’t he that creepy old gay actor? Why was he messing with women???” and then I finally recalled that was Harvey Firestein or something like that.

    Then I saw photos of Harvey Weinstein and recognized him, and that included a photo of him with the actress that played Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and she looked like a hostage. It reminded me of that photo that SD posts of Kim Jong Un with his family and all the women look terrified. It was the exact same look on her face.

    My hope is that this whole scandal shoves the door open enough that the pedophilia abusers get exposed, as well. That ought to tear the whole, stinky mess known as Hollywood apart. Let it burn.

        I still watch some On Demand or on Netflix or something, but I’m pretty picky about what I choose to waste my time with. Same with TV shows. If they annoy me with their lefty crap ZAP off it goes.

    Now perhaps people like Rob Reiner and Alex Baldwin will shut their mouths about telling people what to believe and how to live.

    It’s pretty darn likely just about all of A,B,C & D list Hollywood knew about Harvey.

    The Trade has already taken a big hit in revenue by virtue of all the anti-PDJT stuff.

    This is going to hit the bottom-line too.

    Clint Eastwood, James Woods and Jerry Bruckheimer must be thinking, Karma.

    Ben entered a rehab program for alcohol addiction and Weinstein just entered a rehab program for his sex addiction. The pathetic people in Hollywood will be welcoming them both back with open arms. Dr. Drew is already out there saying Weinstein deserves a second chance. There is no sin or crime big enough for Hollywood. As bad as it seems for Weinstein right now, in a year or two he will be forgiven and back working in Hollywood. Just look at the two famous directors I listed below, both raped a child and both were welcomed back to Hollywood.

    Movie Director and screenwriter, Victor Salva is a convicted child molester and child porn horder. He served time and was forgiven by Hollywood and hired by Disney.😡

    Roman Polanski admitted to having sex with a 13 yr old, after being charged for her rape. He fled the country. Hollywood took Polanski’s side and continue to work with him. 😡

    I think Harvey is finished. His political connections are too exposed by all of this to let him come back. Hollywood might take him back but the democrats trying to get rid of the Clintons won’t. This was a political hit.

    I don’t know if hollywood will even want him back. This feels like a watershed moment for hollywood women who will not go along with it this time, and they have to power to expose all of the dirt on many powerful men in the industry right now.

    I never go to he movies or watch TV. Haven’t for decades. I have hundreds of DVD’s of movies from the 1930’s to the 1970’s and a few dozen from the 80’s o now. Hollywood has been utter pap for years and years. These people are not worth a cup of cold urine. Bob Mitchum and Steve McQueen they ain’t.

      So true. I have seen many pre code talkies. They were incredibly interesting, real examination of issues of the time. Often still relevant today. There’s also nothing greater than an old Hollywood conservative John Wayne sparring with a Liberal Kirk Douglas. Or Fonda and Stewart deciding to never discuss politics. I’ve seen the film where they met. They are young talented men.

        American New Wave (late 1960’s to mid 1970’s) was the peak of Hollywood in my opinion. It all went to hell from then on. Starting with that idiot George Lucas and his puerile franchise.

      Interesting story about McQueen, in Thomas Crown Affair. In the beach scene he makes a very obvious timing mistake. It’s jarring because it makes you realise how impeccable his timing is. On the commentary, the director mentions that Dunaway was falling in love with him and she added “I love you” to the script, which as cut on the soundtrack. If you watch the scene with the Dunaway line (you can lip read), his timing is perfect.

      I’ve really taken to watching 70s movies lately. I did watch Catch 22 the other night and really enjoyed it. Funny how much of it is relevant now. Conservative Jon Voight was great in that. Cotton candy, lol.

    For those that have researched how our society, education, government, media (pravda) and entertainment industry has come to its sordid current state you need look no further than the Frankfort School of Marxists that settled in our elite universities in the 30’s, the upper echelons of the Freemason secret society and the Cabalist Iluminati that dominate the Oligarchy that runs it all.
    The masons were at work throughout the 19th century as well and majority press domination was achieved even then. All of these groups have the same ultimate goal, Global Utopia (for the ruling class and those deemed worthy), egalitarian crumbs for the compliant and necessary masses and extermination for the rest. The Utopia they have in mind is total satisfaction of their sensual appetites and the destruction of Christianity.

      Maybe, but it might also be that what’s happening to the US is what always happens to empire at the end of its “golden age”. 1-Family breaks down 2-Art becomes decadent 3- Politicians become corrupt 4-People develop eating disorders … Keep in mind the Romans didn’t know they were living in the last days of Rome. We have the advantage of having read history. The Barbarians weren’t “at the gate” of Rome, they were inside the gates of Rome, Roman “leaders” having assumed they could assimilate the Barbarians from across the Rhine and from the far reaches of the empire (the equivalent of the Third World). Also keep in mind that the end of the golden age lasts anywhere from a few years to hundreds. Rome struggled along for a long time before the end.

        Just what I was thinking except in a more simple fashion from what yy4u described. This is history repeating itself. Perversion and sexcapades rule. And it wasn’t just the Romans either…this use to happen in merry ‘ole England during the days of the kings and their courts too.

    As with good ‘ol Roman Polanski, Hollywood first has to know your politics then it will decide if you are guilty.

    For me, one of the most delicious parts of this entire Weinstein expose was watching a day or two ago when a huge Democrat supporter AND a “super delegate” for Hillary Clinton to the Democrat National Convention marched out on stage with a young actress to accuse another nuge Democrat supporter and financial donator… and close Hillary Clinton confidante of sexual misconduct. Yes, lawyer Gloria Allred was representing at least one of those actresses who are making sexual misconduct claims against Harvey Weinstein. (Is it ANY wonder that Allred’s daughter, Lisa Bloom, resigned her position representing Harvey Weinstein?) More popcorn… PLEASE!

      Lisa Bloom was going to rehabilitate HW. Perhaps she didn’t want to watch him shower?

      I remember Gloria Allred during the OJ fiasco circa 1994 — she had the opportunity to expose a huge amount of Hollywood and Brentwood corruption at the time, drug running, sex, and other stuff, but rather than having the courage to do that, she took the easy route to sell OJ as what he apparently was, and left the other things untouched.

    This is how Hollywood will fix this problem. All the men will plead mea culpa and accept “treatment” as Weinstein has shown the way. Hollywood will guarantee that women will get equal pay as the men, regardless of how good they are or level of box office receipts. At next year’s Oscars, only women will get all the honors; they will change categories like Best Leading Male to Best Leading Performer, they will make all awards gender neutral which will cut the Oscar performance show time down considerably. It will be a big win for all the female SJW’s as long as they don’t trash Weinstein, Affleck, etc and then just go back to trashing PDJT. Business as usual, no harm done.

      Lack of a moral compass and integrity for most of them. And quite frankly, this was a quid pro quo for many of them. I guess it wore on their consciences and self worth over time and built as resentment. And yet still, very little outcry and no naming of others in the industry who do the same thing or exposing any of the pedophiles.

      The fact they continue to cover up for the pedophiles erodes any sympathy I have for them.
