Over Twitter Wednesday, Ben Affleck confirmed that he groped then-host Hilarie Burton on the set of MTV’s Total Request Live back in 2003. The scandal heated up when Burton, who’s gone on to star in One Tree Hill and the Lethal Weapon TV series, recently tweeted a montage of TRL outtakes that includes her saying of Affleck, “He comes over and tweaks my left boob!“ While Burton added, “Some girls like a good tweakage now and then; I’d rather have a high-five,“ she now explains, “I had to laugh back then so I wouldn’t cry.“ Affleck, who recently denounced the predatory behavior of his onetime Miramax mentor, Harvey Weinstein, subsequently tweeted, “I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize.“
