"Girls. I'm so impressed with you courageous ones", Burton tweeted, posting a link to a video of an episode of TRL outtakes. Later in the clip, Affleck says to her, "How old are you-19?"

Hours after Ben Affleck condemned the actions of Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual assault by numerous Hollywood actresses, former One Tree Hill star Hilarie Burton has claimed that Affleck once groped her on the hit MTV show TRL. "The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick", he wrote on Facebook.

Last night, Ben Affleck shared a statement in which he said the accusations made him "angry", continuing: "I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn't happen to others". We must support those who come forward, condemn this type of behavior when we see it and help ensure there are more women in positions of power'.

After a fan suggested that Affleck should have "kept quiet", another Twitter user wrote, "He also grabbed Hilarie Burton's breasts on TRL once".
