Ben Affleck Slammed After Blaming Jennifer Garner for His Alcoholism: Cheap Shot

The ‘Way Back’ actor is dragged online for ‘speaking poorly’ about his ex-wife and the mother of his three children when addressing his drinking problem in an interview.

AceShowbizBen Affleck has received online hate after dragging his ex-wife Jennifer Garner into a conversation about his alcohol addiction. The Academy Award-winning writer has come under fire after seemingly blaming the actress for his drinking issue.

“You blame your ex wife for drinking? You were a drunk before you married her!” one person pointed out. Another called him out, “Speaking poorly about the mother of your children pretty much makes to [sic] a terrible father and a total d***head!”

“@BenAffleck sounds like your blaming your ex-wife for your drinking! Scumbag!” a third user blasted the 49-year-old actor. A fourth added, “You’re a d***head. Even if that’s the case about unhappiness in your marriage why would you drag your ex through the mud publicly and seemingly blame that situation for your own self destructive choices.”

Someone called him “the worst” as saying, “Ben Affleck confirms… he is still the worst.” Another weighed in, “#BenAffleck is unlikeable. Don’t blame your ex-wife for your issues.” Someone else dubbed his statement “cheap shot,” tweeting, “Cheap shot saying you were trapped in a marriage and it caused you to drink. Way to take some responsibilities for your part.”

During his recent appearance on Howard Stern‘s SiriusXM radio show, Ben revealed he turned to alcohol as he struggled to keep his marriage to then-wife Jennifer intact. “We probably would’ve ended up at each other’s throats. I probably still would’ve been drinking,” he reflected on his unhappy marriage. “Part of why I started drinking was because I was trapped.”

“I was like, ‘I can’t leave because of my kids, but I’m not happy, what do I do?’ And what I did was [I] drank a bottle of scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution,” he explained. “Ultimately, we tried, we tried, we tried because we had kids, but both of us felt like we didn’t want this to be the model that our kids see of marriage.”

The former spouses eventually called it quits in 2015.
