Watch Ben Affleck's Expletive-Heavy Rant During Bill Simmons Sit-Down

Goodbye #SadAffleck, hello #RagingAffleck!

Ben Affleck on Wednesday upped his angst to an 11 during an interview on Bill Simmons‘ new HBO venture Any Given Wednesday. The bizarre tirade found the Boston-bred actor-director unleashing an expletive-heavy answer when prompted to discuss the highly publicized Deflategate scandal of 2015 (or as it seems, a million years ago) that resulted in the four-game, ultimately overturned suspension of New England Patriots QB Tom Brady.

“Deflategate is the ultimate bull—t f—ing outrage of sports,” Affleck roared. “They haven’t done anything to address this crisis of domestic violence in the NFL, but the f—ing football better not be eight percent lighter.”

As social media began buzzing about Affleck’s behavior, Simmons took to Twitter to dismiss any speculation about why the two-time Oscar winner may have responded the way that he did:

    He is so effing drunk in this clip. LOL!

    • Bwhit says:

      I don’t think he is, if you say deflategate to any Patriots fan you better be prepared for what was in this clip! I sit by two Pats fans at work and it’s an unspoken rule you don’t mention deflated anything :).

      • hanna says:

        He actually was drunk. They have alcohol in the dressing room, and Barkley’s interview ran late. He had nothing to do but drink while he waited. He probably would have been passionate about it either way, but still very drunk here.

      • A fan of TV says:

        So true. Patriots fans are inconsolable over the notion that their beloved team might not play by the rules, when it’s not at all a shock as NONE of the teams in the NFL are above cheating, and instead of sobbing they just channel that to white hot blind rage.

    his plastic surgery looks so terrible omg

  3. Luis says:

    He was thinking about the reviews for Batman v. Superman, and probably thinking, “Brady could have been a better Superman than Cavill!”

  4. A.J. says:

    Is it just me or does it seem like Affleck went to this interview straight from getting some Botox? His entire face, besides his mouth, barely moves and even his mouth doesn’t seem to be opening all the way. It makes him sound strange, like he’s talking with his mouth almost closed. Weird to look at.

  5. David4 says:

    I can’t stand football, but when I do I’m a Giants fan, but he’s exactly right. The whole thing is a joke.

  6. tallsy says:

    Drunk? Botox? Coke?

  7. Charles says:

    Forget about his use of profanity, he’s absolutely correct. This has been such an extreme waste of time its not even funny. The draft pick loss and fine should’ve been the end of it. And I post this as a Jets fan.

  8. Big Cheddar says:

    He probably needed some coffee or, as a diehard Patriots fan, is incredibly worked up about it and his brain is moving faster than his mouth. Whatever it is, I also agree with most of what he said.

  9. Bwhit says:

    I can’t blame him for being so passionate about his team and QB. It pains me to say this because I’m a Denver fan but he’s absoulety right about this whole mess, couple that with the fact that he and Tom Brady are friends and this is the result.

  10. Mary says:

    I do think they have carried this a little to far, but sorry Ben anyone who can’t express an opinion without using the F work constantly has no class and cannot be taking seriously.
    Was he on something or does he ramble like that all the time?

  11. cookie says:

    Is HBO really paying Simmons $20 million for this? It looks like it’s worth about $20.

  12. colig says:

    he sounds like he had a stroke.

  13. shkamidit says:

    What happened to his face? (And his dignity?)

  14. liame says:

    Slaying the sauce.

  15. Tony Lang says:

    What the ‘Fleck?!?

  16. A fan of TV says:

    Didn’t they reverse the overturned suspension and now he has to serve it? I don’t care, honestly, Brady’s a fool who plays the dumbest game on planet Earth.

  17. A fan of TV says:

    Anyone who believes that the NFL isn’t corrupt to the core, and that Brady’s involvement in deflated balls is an isolated incident is far too trusting in a whole league full of false idols with a lot more money than they’ll ever have class.

  18. JScout says:

    The Patriots and Tom Brady cheat. They have for years. Wouldn’t surprise me if they continue to cheat any way they can. It’s systemic to that organization.

  19. Chris says:

    Drunk.

  20. Jan says:

    Ben is absolutely right! It isn’t even about deflated balls anymore. The Commissioner is on a power trip. Unfortunately one of the best players in the game is the scapegoat.

    He didn’t need to use the F word in every sentence. Overkill.

  21. Trogdor777 says:

    Well he’s not wrong. Besides, Sports talk is something a lot of peeps get fired up about. Simmons probably knew this question would get that type of response, otherwise why even go there. Damn, Wish I was hammered in ‘the late a.m.’ haha

  22. Walkie says:

    Simmons is clearly lying. Affleck was smashed and embarrassed himself.

    And of course whack job Patriots fans have to come running to his defense.

  23. Jolinda says:

    As a fellow Boston sport fan, and a diehard Patriots fan, I appreciate the response from Ben Affleck! His reaction is only a mirror of mine to this whole stupid Deflategate b***s***! He’s no drunk, just passionate, like all the other true Patriots fans out there.

  24. Jake says:

    Brady and the Patriots are a bunch of crybabies. They finally got penalized for one of their many cheating escapades and they can’t take it. Boo Hoo!!!!!!

  25. Moordie says:

    The worst kind of stupid person is the one that thinks he is actually intelligent.
