The disgustingly hypocritical Hollywood media STILL covering up “Buttman” allegations surrounding actor Ben Affleck

Americans are regularly lectured by Hollywood stars about what is and is not ‘proper’ behavior, especially when it comes to the treatment of women. To hear the average Left-wing Hollywood type tell it, only liberals like them really know how to treat women right.

Except now we’re finding out what many of us already knew: Hollywood is full of perverts, sexists, and hypocritical abusers of women.

But it’s not all on mega-director Harvey Weinstein, who was finally outed this past week as a decades-long perv who (allegedly) sexually harassed and may have even raped women who were seeking parts in his movies, some of them (like Kate Beckinsale and Ashley Judd) who were barely legal at the time.

No, we’re finding out now that more Hollywood men — leading A-List actors and comedians — are no knights in shining armor rushing to help damsels in distress. Rather, they’re the ones putting damsels in distress. And of course, the pathetic Hollywood media is doing all it can to look the other way.

One of these leading men is Ben Affleck who has now earned the nickname “Buttman” — a spoof on his recent portrayal of Batman — after a video has emerged of him touching a then-18-year-old actress, Hilarie Burton, live on camera in 2003.

As reported by the UK’s Telegraph, Affleck has become the object of shame and mockery following additional allegations of groping that have emerged this week, and it could deeply impact a film he’s to star in that is nearing release. In the movie “Justice League,” which was a big-budget deal, he plays Batman once again, but the Buttman nickname really started in earnest after make-up artist Annamarie Tendler became the second women to allege Affleck groped her.


On Twitter, Burton responded to tweets about Affleck’s groping — in particular, grabbing her breasts — that she had not forgotten the incident:

Her claim was followed up by Tendler, who explained on Twitter — where else? — that Affleck touched her inappropriately during a post-Golden Globes awards party three years ago:

“I would also love to get an apology from Ben Affleck who grabbed my a** at a Golden Globes party in 2014,” she tweeted. “He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack. I guess he tried to play it like he was politely moving me out of the way and oops touched my butt instead of my lower back?”

Affleck, as of this writing, had not yet responded to Tendler’s claims (he apologized, via Twitter, for touching Burton). But another woman, comedy writer Jen Starkey, said that “multiple women” had endured similar experiences via Affleck at the same party:

“I was also at this party and *multiple* friends had this same exact experience,” she tweeted. (Related: Parade of dirtbags: Ben Affleck, Jimmy Kimmel, Harvey Weinstein all exposed as liberal Hollywood elitists who abuse women.)

As for Affleck’s upcoming movie, Justice League, there is already concern among executives at Warner Brothers, which produced the film, it’s most expensive franchise: They are worried that the allegations will turn off moviegoers and the company will take it on the chin at the box office.

As Breitbart News notes, the movie — “a tentpole coming out in less than five weeks, a blockbuster the entire industry is counting on to salvage the 2017 box office, a crowd-pleaser needed to remind people why they love going to the movies, an investment that with promotional costs probably reaches $250 – $300 million — is now in serious jeopardy.”

Worse, Affleck’s exposure is coming at a time when sexual assault by powerful men (in Hollywood) just became a very big thing. This could capsize his entire career, just as it has cost Weinstein his.
