Shame on The New Yorker — but good on Ben Affleck for calling them out with grace and class… and a little humor!
The publication ran a piece earlier this week that was very heavily critical of the actor’s current physique and body weight, noting both his “gut pooching outward” and his tattoos.
And while Twitter users were quick to point out how unbelievably mean-spirited the piece was, Affleck himself decided to call out the irresponsible and frankly unnecessary journalism in a very different way.
Look at his little message for the New Yorker that came through on Thursday morning (below):
You can read the horribly hurtful New Yorker piece HERE, but don’t bother — Affleck’s response is far better and far more all-encompassing.
BTW… you can criticize movies, or TV shows, or fashion choices, or career moves, but STOP ALL THE BODY SHAMING!!!!!
