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

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:
I didn't forget.

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?
