Ben Affleck went on a expletive-filled rant while making an appearance on HBO’s Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons on Wednesday (June 22).
The 43-year-old actor and director, and huge fan of the New England Patriots, defended NFL quarterback Tom Brady against the deflategate allegations.
“This is a conspiracy of people working inside the NFL who all come from organizations that Tom Brady whipped their [butts] over the last 10 or 15 years. These are guys who work for the [expletive] Jets, the Broncos and everybody else, who are now like, ‘Get him! Hang him!’ because they now have some slight, flimsy [expletive] pretense. And Tom is so classy,” Ben said on the show.
During the airing, many fans were wondering why Ben was slurring his words and getting so upset. Bill responded on Twitter, “BTW – we taped AGW in the late-AM, Ben got fired up about DeflateGate during the convo, that’s it.”
If you watch the interview, be warned, it’s NSFW!
