Ben Affleck Apologizes for GROPING Actress Hilarie Burton...
Noted actor, director, Lord of Virtue and King of Tolerance Ben Affleck was accused of, and has now admitted and apologized for, groping actress Hilarie Burton.
I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize— Ben Affleck (@Ben Affleck)1507742819.0
Now I want an apology for the lack of period in that sentence.
Here's the backstory: Good Will Groper here released a statement about how much he was "shocked" and "saddened" [plus other thesaurus-generated words for "I hired my publicist for a reason"] about Harvey Weinstein:

How touchy feely. Plot twist, some ladies who'd witnessed Batman fondling forbidden fruit started grumbling on Twitter:
@ShaniceBrim @naimaism I didn't forget.— Hilarie Burton Morgan (@Hilarie Burton Morgan)1507679120.0
Which means Mr. Affleck is kind of scummy. Nope, I'm not equating grabbing a woman's breasts to what Weinstein did. But I am saying this sanctimonious crap Hollywood heavyweights are putting out there about "I didn't know about Weinstein but I better cover my ass fast" is falling apart. In glorious fashion. Read Dear Hollywood: Your Reaction to Weinstein Proves You’re Disgusting, Amoral Hypocrites.
Hollywood's house of cards is falling. So, who will tumble next?
