Ben Affleck Faces Sexual Misconduct Questions On The Late Show & TODAY — WATCH!

Ben Affleck

Ben Affleck is facing his sexual harassment accusations head on.

As you may know, the 45-year-old actor is currently on a press tour for Justice League — but interviewers would be remiss to not bring up Affleck's connection to the Harvey Weinstein allegations, as well as his own controversial behavior.

On Thursday night, the father of three appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, who didn't hesitate to ask Affleck the tough questions about the clear abuse of power against women in the industry.

Even though the celeb nervously quipped, "This is a comedy show, correct?" initially, we applaud him for not shying away — and encouraging everyone to believe the women (and men!) coming forward.

Taylor Swift's Lawyers Fall Silent Amid First Amendment Feud With ACLU-Defended Blogger Meghan Herning

taylor swift legal team doesnt respond to aclu

Looks like Taylor Swift isn't planning to wage war against the ACLU!

As we previously reported, the Gorgeous singer's legal team went after the blog PopFront as they threatened to sue the outlet if they didn't take down a piece titled Swiftly To The Alt-Right: Taylor Subtly Gets The Lower Case kkk In Formation.

At the time, Swift's lawyer William J. Briggs hit the publication with a cease-and-desist letter and dragged the article for being defamatory as it was allegedly "replete with demonstrable and offensive falsehoods." In response to the reaction from Taylor's team, the blog post's author Meghan Herning reached out to the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California.

Understandably, Herning felt her First Amendment rights were being encroached upon. Well it seems as though the ACLU's involvement in this issue has scared off the blonde chart topper's attorneys as they've yet to receive a response from Camp Swift.

As per the update given on Thursday, the ACLU clapped back at the "meritless legal defamation and copyright threats against" Herning and asked Swift's legal team to respond by November 13. On the 27-year-old's lawyers' recent silence, ACLU attorney Michael Risher noted in a statement:

Don't Forget, Donald Trump Has Been Accused Of Sexual Assault By 16 Women — Here Are Their Stories

Donald Trump

As we continue the fight to hold men accountable for abusing their power to sexually harass women — it's important we don't forget one very important player in all of this. Donald Trump.

What sense does it make to call out the Harvey Weinsteins and Kevin Spaceys of the world, when we're literally letting a self-proclaimed assaulter run ours? These standards cannot just apply to a few, but to all.

The new documentary short from Brave New Films powerfully reminds us of this as it compiles heartbreaking statements from 16 women who have come forward with stories of disturbing encounters with Trump.

The studio's founder Robert Greenwald said of the project in a statement:

"As a society, we are finally beginning to hold powerful men to account for abusing their positions and influence to harass and abuse women. But this movement for accountability will ring hollow if it doesn't apply to the most powerful, and public, sexual harasser in America—the president. In the post-Harvey Weinstein (or Roy Moore, Louis C.K., etc.) world we live in, we cannot ignore 16 women who over the course of decades in a broad range of situations encountered the same pattern of manipulation, misogyny, harassment and abuse. We owe it to these women, and to all women, to hold President Trump to account."

LOUDER FOR THOSE IN THE BACK, ROBERT!

Remember these courageous women's stories in the video (below):
