Amid the Harvey Weinstein scandal in October 2017, Burton retweeted a video clip from TRL Uncensored, in which she is seen recalling how Ben Affleck "wraps his arm around me, and comes over and tweaks my left boob" during an interview in 2003. Burton said, "I didn't forget [about it] . . . I was a kid. " Affleck responded on Twitter shortly afterward, stating, "I acted inappropriately toward Ms. Burton and I sincerely apologize. " When asked about the incident on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in November 2017, Affleck said, "I don't remember it, but I absolutely apologize for it. I certainly don't think she's lying or making it up. As men, I think as we become more aware of this we need to be really mindful of our behavior and hold ourselves accountable and say, 'if I was ever part of the problem, I want to change, I want to be a part of the solution. '" In November 2017, Burton also spoke out in light of charges that One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn had sexually harassed some of the female crew, alleging that she had also been sexually harassed by Schwahn.
