A second video has gone viral showing Hollywood actor Ben Affleck allegedly groping an interviewer.
The latest clip shows Affleck with a Canadian TV presenter on his lap, while encouraging her to present the show topless.
They would like the show better if they did it topless, wouldn’t they?
In the same controversial clip, which has been dubbed ‘disgusting’, the Good Will Hunting actor also mocks people with Cerebral Palsy.

Affleck is yet to respond to latest video.
However, the host, Vanessa Media, told The Hollywood Reporter that it was all ‘for the camera.’
You have to understand that we have done dozens and dozens of interviews like that. It was for a show I was producing, so I was not at all a victim. When the cameras rolled, we would start to do that game. As soon as it stopped rolling, there was none of that. He never touched me in any improper way. He was very respectful, I must say.
This comes hours after the actor made an apology for acting ‘inappropriately’ towards actress Hilarie Burton on a 2003 episode of TRL.
She previously accused him of groping her breast on the music show.
The A-lister released a statement via Twitter after the One Tree Hill actress came out and made the revelation following the news Harvey Weinstein had abused several actresses over the last 20 years.
I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologise.
Affleck said he was ‘saddened and angry’ over the ‘sickening’ claims made against movie mogul Weinstein who has produced countless Oscar-nominated and winning films since founding Miramax.
A recording was released yesterday of him asking a model to watch him shower.
To be clear what Harvey Weinstein did was a disgusting abuse of power and horrible. I hope we are now seeing the beginning of the end of these abuses.

The New Yorker leaked the audio Tuesday in light of the Hollywood mogul’s history of sexual abuse against women that was reported by The New York Times.
The news report exposes the moment Weinstein begs a Filipina-Italian model named Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, who was recording the meeting for a 2015 NYD sting operation, to come in his room and watch him shower.
He also confesses to groping her breast and saying ‘I’m used to that,’ saying he won’t do it again if she comes into the bathroom.
After numerous refusals, the producer eventually dismisses her.
Harvey Weinstein was fired from The Weinstein Company on Sunday following the exposé that revealed decades of sexual harassment allegations made against him by actresses.
