Ben Affleck is in hot water after Rose McGowan dragged him and his BFF Matt Damon into Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment controversy.

In a tweet, McGowan accused Damon of stopping a story about Weinstein. She also called out Affleck for lying about Weinstein's history of sexual harassment. Following this incident, a number of reports about the "Justice League" actor touching and groping women resurfaced. According to Shanice Brim, Affleck groped Hilarie Burton back in 2003 when they appeared on "Total Request Live."

The "Batman" star didn't deny the allegation and issued a public apology to the actress on Twitter. "I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize," Affleck tweeted.

According to Us Weekly, Affleck's apology came just a few hours after Brim revealed the incident on Twitter and Burton confirmed it. "He also grabbed Hilarie Burton's breasts on 'TRL' once. Everyone forgot though," she wrote. The "One Tree Hill" alum then responded, "I didn't forget … I was a kid."

In addition, a new video of Affleck touching a girl when he promoted his film "Jersey Girl" in 2004 has been making rounds online. In the clip, Affleck had the reporter sit on his lap during the interview, put his arms around her and nuzzled into her chest. For the entire duration of the interview, the "Argo" star made inappropriate comments towards her.

"I like the perfume. They would like it better if you did this show topless," Affleck told the reporter. "We should do the interview like this. That's a lovely perfume you have on. You normally show a lot more cleavage than this. What's the story? Why are you covering it up today?"

This comes after Affleck shared his thoughts about Weinstein's sexual harassment controversy via Twitter on Tuesday. "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," Affleck wrote on Twitter. "The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick. This is completely unacceptable."

Addressing his statement, McGowan revealed that Affleck allegedly told her about his knowledge of Weinstein's sexual harassment history. On the other hand, his best pal, Damon, denied McGowan's claims that he stopped a story about Weinstein.

"My recollection was that it was about a one minute phone call," Damon told Deadline. "As I recall, her piece just said that Russell and I had called and relayed our experience with Fabrizio. That was the extent of it and so I was very surprised to see it come back."
