Hilarie Burton reiterates Ben Affleck groped her in 2003

Hilarie Burton reiterates Ben Affleck groped her in 2003

The Oscar victor admitted he "acted inappropriately" towards Hilarie Burton when he was a guest on her U.S. chat show in 2003.

Ben Affleck is receiving backlash after a 2003 claim from former "One Tree Hill" star Hilarie Burton that the actor groped her on MTV's "TRL" resurfaced on social media.

The One Tree Hill alum, 35, opened up about the alleged incident after the Oscar victor, 45, condemned Harvey Weinstein amid the movie mogul's multiple sexual harassment allegations.

Burton spoke of the claims on Twitter in response to a fan who wrote: 'Ben Affleck should've just kept quiet. "Everyone forgot though (sic)".

The Twitter user Shanice Brime responded to Burton by saying, "I'm so sorry that happened to you". She then followed it up by tweeting "Seriouysly, thank you for that. Everyone forgot though", to which Burton replied: "I didn't forget". I'm so impressed with you courageous ones.

Others think that he’ll continue to use the picks himself and construct a young core that can emerge after the Cavaliers vs. Fultz is an ideal scoring guard to run alongside him, and can also take over point guard duties if the Simmons experiment fails.

Later in the video he goes on to say: "Don't make me look like I am retarded!"

McGowan was one of at least eight women who settled lawsuits with Weinstein over the course of three decades, according to the Times.

Some Twitter users thought McGowan was naming the actors due to Ben's support of Casey after Casey was accused of sexual harassment by two women in 2010.

"GODDAMNIT! I TOLD HIM TO STOP DOING THAT' you said that to my face". It was Weinstein who loved Affleck and Matt Damon's script for the 1997 drama "Good Will Hunting" so much that he pushed the movie into production. Affleck and McGowan co-starred in 1998's Phantoms, which was distributed by Weinstein's Miramax and released a year after an alleged episode between Weinstein and McGowan at a Sundance hotel room resulted in a $100,000 dollar payout to McGowan.

Burton has not publicly responded to Affleck's apology. "The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick", Affleck, 45, tweeted Tuesday. "You lie", she wrote. "This is what you said to me in front, before the press conference that I planned to do about my assault".
