Ben Affleck fires back at body-shaming jokes

The actor and director was targeted by the New Yorker in a new piece called “The Great Sadness of Ben Affleck,” which made light of his “Homer Simpsonesque." The article, which stemmed from the Oscar winner’s recent shirtless appearance on the beach, was met with some criticism by fans who thought Affleck was being body-shamed. But Affleck is quite happy to defend himself, as evidenced by the tweet he just sent to the esteemed magazine.
