Ben Affleck Goes on a Possibly Intoxicated, Expletive-Filled Tirade on HBO’s Any Given Wednesday


I’m not really into football and I certainly have no stake in the whole “Deflategate” controversy, but you’d have to have been in your robopocalypse shelter not to have heard about the Tom Brady/New England Patriots scandal. That people go so insane over sports — and particularly football — is somehow beyond my comprehension, but I’m happy to let a possibly inebriated Ben Affleck demonstrate the fervor with which a fan will defend a player or team. Forget gun debates and things like #DemocraticSitIn and #NoBillNoBreak; Ben is “fired up” about the NFL suspending Tom Brady after the player refused to allow his cell phone (which may or may not have been destroyed) to be searched.

Regardless, does Affleck have no agent or friend that might deter him from appearing in this state? I can’t say for certain he’s been drinking, but something is definitely off, and as the daughter of an estranged alcoholic, my instincts definitely lead in that direction. There’ve been rumblings about a problem for years and personally, I find this particular video more sad than anything. Dude, you have young children …

(Warning: The F-bomb is dropped too many times to count, so this is definitely NSFW/C.)

… get some help.
