Rose McGowan Blasts Ben Affleck Over Pleading Ignorance On Harvey Weinstein

As scandals break, the shock and awe phase is quickly replaced by a phase that consists of questions on who knew what and when. We’re seeing that come to pass in the wake of the growing Harvey Weinstein scandal, and there have been plenty of insinuations that his predatory ways were well known within entertainment circles. If that’s truly the case, then there may be plenty of more dominoes that will be falling in the future.

As TMZ shares, Rose McGowan is doing her part to see if she can get some dominoes to topple over. Ben Affleck has insinuated that he knew nothing about Weinstein’s ways, but McGowan is singing a different tune - and she hasn’t been shy about belting it out.

“Ben Affleck is flat out lying if he wants people to think he didn't know about Harvey Weinstein ... at least according to Rose McGowan who says she told Ben face-to-face,” TMZ shares. “Shortly after Ben issued his first comments about Weinstein -- with whom he worked closely on several movies, including 'Good Will Hunting' -- Rose blasted the actor for making it sound like Weinstein's pattern of sexual harassment was news to him.”

This isn’t just simple ‘he said, she said’ bickering either, as McGowan has become very blunt about the situation on social media.

“@benaffleck 'Goddamnit! I told him to stop doing that' you said that to my face. The press conf I was made to go to after assault. You lie,” she wrote.

The hits keep coming for Affleck as well, as actress Hilarie Burton of ‘One Tree Hill’ fame accused the actor of groping her breast on a 2003 episode of MTV’s ‘TRL.’ A fan brought that allegation into the spotlight, and she surprisingly chimed in to confirm it.

“He also grabbed Hilarie Burton's breasts on TRL once. Everyone forgot though,” shared the fan.

“I didn't forget,” Burton wrote.

Affleck was quick to apologize after being called out so publicly for his actions.

“I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize,” he shared on social media.

The incident occurred when the actress was hosting TRL, and she recounted what happened in vivid detail during the discussion on social media.

“I was a kid...Girls. I’m so impressed with you brave ones. I had to laugh back then so I wouldn’t cry. Sending love,” she wrote, before sharing a clip of the incident. “He wraps his arm around me and comes over and tweaks my left boob. I'm just like, 'what are you doing'...Some girls like a good tweakage here and there - I like a high five.”

A female producer from the show would also chime in.

“I don't know what happened but Hilarie was like 'ooo'. There was a little squeeze, I don't know,” the producer said.

It seems like Affleck had better become familiar with the phrase ‘no comment’ whenever Weinstein is brought up around him. He’s already been called out by someone that claims he knew about Weinstein’s behavior, as well as for his own inappropriate behavior.
