We’re just plain disgusted to hear that Ben Affleck threw his weight around and coerced producers of the PBS show “Finding Your Roots” to alter their documentary and eliminate the fact that one of his ancestors was a slave owner. Who does Affleck think he is? Does he think his errant ancestor (which MANY of us have) is going to reflect badly on HIS image? He pushed the reputable show to falsify research and instead focus on a Revolutionary war ancestor. All this came out in the SONY email hack – it was apparent the show’s host and producers were very upset by Affleck’s unethical demand, but afraid not to give in. Ben Affleck should be ashamed.
