Tendler then went on to detail the alleged incident, which Affleck has never publicly acknowledged or addressed.
“He walked by me, cupped my butt and pressed his finger into my crack,” Tendler wrote.
“I guess he tried to play it like he was politely moving me out of the way and oops touched my butt instead of my lower back?
“Like most women in these situations I didn’t say anything but I have thought a lot about what I’d say if I ever saw him again,” the artist concluded.
