Ben Affleck Attempts To Hide His Slave-Owning Ancestors…


So… You find out that you have ancestors that were slave owners… what would you do? Hide it? or let the world know that you discovered this while performing a search during a PBS show Finding Your Roots?

Well guess what… Ben tried to hide it… and thanks to WikiLeaks… the world now knows the story…  and they also know that Sony was in on the cover up…

Affleck broke his silence on the controversy by posting an apology on Facebook Tuesday night, saying, “I regret my initial thoughts that the issue of slavery not be included in the story. We deserve neither credit nor blame for our ancestors and the degree of interest in this story suggests that we are, as a nation, still grappling with the terrible legacy of slavery. It is an examination well worth continuing. I am glad that my story, however indirectly, will contribute to that discussion. While I don’t like that the guy is an ancestor, I am happy that aspect of our country’s history is being talked about.”
