Hours after Ben Affleck condemned the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, 'One Tree Hill' star Hilarie Burton accused Affleck of groping her when she was the host of MTV's Total Request Live.

The incident happened in 2003 and the actress while replying to fans on twitter said that she hasn't forgotten it.

Burton, who was 21 at that time, said that she didn't know how to react then and laughed it off in a nervous situation.

Here are the series of tweets in which Hilarie Burton shares about the whole incident:

Ben Affleck's reaction was also slammed by Rose McGowan, the actress who played the character of Paige Matthews in The WB supernatural drama series Charmed. Rose was also one of the actresses who have accused Harvey Weinstein of assault and harassment. McGowan claimed that she had spoken to Affleck about Weinstein's behaviour but didn't pay heed. The actress called Affleck a liar. McGowan and Ben Affleck had co-starred in the 1998 film Phantoms.

Harvey Weinstein has been alleged of assault and harassment of actresses, including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow.
