    Ben Affleck, who tweeted condemnation of fellow actor Weinstein's sexual assessments, has come under fire after the internet remembered him also groping an MTV host on air in 2003.

    His tweet about Weinstein:

    "I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades," he said.

    "The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick.

    "This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn't happen to others. We need to do better at protecting our sisters, friends, co-workers and daughters.

    "We must support those who come forward, condemn this type of behaviour when we see it and help ensure there are more women in positions of power."

    Wonder how much this goes on in Hollywood. These guys have wealth, fame and many young fans.

    Noticeable that the BBC puts the word "groping" in quotation marks.
