The Ben Affleck Batman May Not Be Watchable Because He’s No Hero

Written by Joe Scudder

Because of accusations after the Harvey Weinstein scandal, people may find “Buttman” spoils their view of the Ben Affleck Batman.

In order to be able to suspend your disbelief and accept the Ben Affleck Batman you have to be able to think of him as Bruce Wayne. But Affleck has not only been accused of helping cover for Harvey Weinstein, but also exploring the buttocks of passing women against their will. Twitter has dubbed him “Buttman.” How can anyone imagine Affleck as the incorruptible, driven, courageous, and disciplined Bruce Wayne after that news has come out?

This is a small example of why the Harvey Weinstein scandal is going to cost Hollywood billions!

The Telegraph reports, “Ben Affleck dubbed ‘Buttman’ as more groping allegations emerge.

Ben Affleck has become the subject of shame and mockery after more allegations of groping emerged this week. Affleck […] has been called “Buttman” on social media since make-up artist Annamarie Tendler became the second woman to allege that he touched her.

Mild content warning, but the first six or seven minutes cover Ben Affleck’s situation rather well.

Personally, I can’t imagine enjoying The Justice League movie now that “Buttman” is in my head.
