WATCH: Ben Affleck Runs From Paparazzi, SILENT When Asked About Troubled Friend Harvey Weinstein
Five days after sexual abuse allegations first were reported liberal actors and politicians finally condemned Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein on Tuesday.
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally released statements condemning the top Democrat donor and close friend Harvey Weinstein.
Even Hollywood actor Ben Affleck condemned Harvey Weinstein on Tuesday after he felt it was safe to release a statement.
Affleck’s former co-star Rose McGowan told Ben to “F*ck off!” and accused him of knowing about Weinstein’s abuse for years.

The Daily Mail reported:
Rose McGowan slammed Ben Affleck as a liar Tuesday after he finally broke his silence over the sexual harassment and assault allegations leveled at Harvey Weinstein.
Five days after the claims broke about the producer, who backed Affleck and Matt Damon’s screenplay for Good Will Hunting, Affleck said that he was ‘saddened and angry’ over the claims.
He also said that ‘The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick,’ and that he wants to see more support for women in the media.
But McGowan, who was allegedly assaulted by Weinstein in 1997 and has been crusading against silence over Weinstein’s grim past, stuck out at his claims to obliviousness.
She tweeted: ‘@benaffleck “GODD*MNIT! 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.’

According to x17online, Affleck visited a LA Buddhist rehab facility on Tuesday, when he was approached about his embattled friend Harvey Weinstein. Affleck didn’t say a word, despite denouncing him in a tweet.

The camera man asked the actor if he thought Weinstein was a sick individual. Affleck didn’t say anything, simply ignoring the question as he entered into the facility.
Affleck is now being accused of groping former TRL host Hilarie Burton’s breasts.
Daily Beast reports:
When a fan tweeted that Affleck might as well have “kept quiet,” another Twitter user wrote: “He also grabbed Hilarie Burton’s breasts on TRL once. Everyone forgot though.”
Burton, who starred in the show One Tree Hill, quickly jumped into the thread, confirming that she recalled the incident.

Hilarie then wrote: “I was a kid.”
