Ben Affleck has apologized for "acting inappropriately" toward actress Hilarie Burton more than a decade ago, according to a tweet from the star.

In his statement, Affleck rebuked Weinstein following newly published allegations by multiple women claiming he sexually assaulted them. "Everyone forgot though (sic)". She then followed it up by tweeting "Seriouysly, thank you for that. Everyone forgot though." Hilarie responded with "I didn't forget". She claims Affleck groped her breast.

"Girls. I'm so impressed with you courageous ones", the actress wrote alongside the clip.

McGowan went on to insinuate that Affleck had known all about her personal experiences with Harvey Weinstein.

Weinstein is now facing a number of allegations involving sexual harassment and assault. "This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn't happen to others", Affleck wrote in a statement.

U.S. warship sails near islands claimed by China, angering Beijing
China immediately dispatched military vessels and tried to challenge the entry of the United States destroyer, local reports said. On Tuesday, three US officials confirmed that a US Navy destroyer sailed near islands claimed by China in the South China Sea .


The incident took place when Burton, who recurs on Fox's "Lethal Weapon", was a co-host on MTV's "Total Request Live", a daily music video countdown that ran for ten years until 2008 and was recently revived by the network.

"The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick. She later elaborated, accusing Affleck of knowing all about Weinstein's problems: "'GODDAMNIT!

In another sequence, you can clearly see Ben Affleck catch, literally, a journalist of the chain Star, even when the latter clearly seems to be wishing to put an end to this physical contact. I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT' you said that to my face.

Weinstein's alleged behaviour has prompted a wave of condemnation from Weinstein's allies in politics, including Barack and Michelle Obama, whose daughter Malia had served as an intern in Weinstein's company earlier this year, and Hillary Clinton. "You lie", McGowan tweeted. If she derails the interview, she's labeled a buzzkill, and MTV likely shows her the door.
