People Forget That Casey Affleck Also Has a History of Sexual Harassment

Amid all the Nate Parker drama, people seem to have forgotten that Casey Affleck also has a history of sexual harassment. 

As Mashable points out, Ben Affleck’s little brother was accused of sexually harassing two women — a producer and a cinematographer — while shooting the mockumentary I’m Still Here in 2010. So why is it that Parker, the Birth of a Nation director, is being talked about as if he’s out of the running for an Academy Award?

It might be because Affleck’s cases were settled in court, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that these two share a similar past. Unlike Parker, who was accused of rape, one woman still claims that Affleck climbed into bed with her and groped her as she slept.

Although people seem to have forgotten about Affleck’s past, do not be surprised if it becomes part of the actor’s narrative too as his film Manchester By the Sea gets more attention.
