Part of the reason I started drinking because I was trapped.” Needless to say, Twitter was furious at the actor’s condescending statement about his ex-wife, with whom he had three children, and rightly so.

Similar thoughts echoed in another tweet and a subtle reminder, which read, “Did Ben Affleck throw Jennifer Garner, the mother of his children, under the bus?” Said he felt trapped in his marriage, blaming her for her drinking? And something like, the welfare of her children is the most important thing. Hasn’t he learned anything from all the drug addiction stays? “
