Ben Affleck’s comments on drinking during Jennifer Garner marriage receives backlash.

Ben Affleck recently made comments about drinking during Jennifer Garner’s marriage that caused him to receive a lot of backlash. He said, “We probably would’ve ended up at each other’s throats. I probably still would’ve been drinking. Part of why I started drinking was because I was trapped.” He continued, “I was like, ‘I can’t leave because of my kids, but I’m not happy, what do I do?’ And what I did was [I] drank a bottle of scotch and fell asleep on the couch, which turned out not to be the solution.”

Many fans were upset that Ben was essentially blaming his drinking problem on Jennifer Garner. They wanted him to take more accountability for his actions.
