The Harvey Weinstein scandal already has caused enough chaos in Hollywood and actresses have gathered the courage to speak up against him.The situation has not yet cooled down and now we have actor Ben Affleck being accused of groping the butt of a makeup artist and now she wants an apology. Affleck had earlier apologized publicly to MTV host Hilarie Burton for groping her when she was younger and he wrote on Twitter that he was very sorry for his inappropriate behavior towards her.

The video of the incident emerged when Affleck denounced the actions of Harvey Weinstein along with many others. Weinstein has disgraced the industry by harassing women and has also been accused of raping three women. Now, Annamarie Tendler, a makeup artist, and author of The Daily Face and Pin It has said that she hopes she won't be the last to be apologized by Affleck. The lady has taken to Twitter and has claimed that the 45-year-old actor made sexual advances towards her at a Golden Globes party in 2014. He did not just grope her but pressed his finger against her butt according to another tweet of hers.She also went about saying that she was not the only woman to experience this and apparently her friends also experienced the same. Now in the wake of the Weinstein sex scandal, a lot of stories are surfacing and one can only wonder how many of them are true.
I would also love to get an apology from Ben Affleck who grabbed my ass at a Golden Globes party in 2014. — Annamarie Tendler (@amtendler) October 11, 2017
He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack. — Annamarie Tendler (@amtendler) October 11, 2017
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? — Annamarie Tendler (@amtendler) October 11, 2017
Like most women in these situations I didn't say anything but I have thought a lot about what I'd say if I ever saw him again. — Annamarie Tendler (@amtendler) October 11, 2017
Earlier Justice League actor Affleck released a lengthy statement regarding the sexual harassment accusations against the media mogul Harvey Weinstein and he said that he was angry and disgraced to know that the man who has worked with, used his power and position to manipulate and sexually offend women for over a decade. He added that the allegations made him sick and it is completely unacceptable. He also mentioned that everyone should make sure to protect their sisters, co-workers, friends, daughters are safe and they do not have to face such ills. He stressed that everyone should support and help people who come out and condemn such kind of behavior.
