Affleck Unleashed!

Who knew Ben Affleck had this much fire in him? At the recent Netflix roast of NFL legend Tom Brady, Affleck took a surprising detour from the expected jabs at Brady to launch into a near six-minute tirade against the darker side of fandom.

"You guys out there talking s--- behind your f---ing keyboard, that doesn’t make you a fan. That makes you a b----," declared a visibly passionate Affleck.

"I can’t think of a more f---ed up, dysfunctional, horrible working system designed to perpetually make people feel awful," he added. His unexpected outburst left many wondering, "What just happened?"

Users on X deemed Affleck "the worst performance of the night."

"Ben Affleck is a walking example that fame and wealth sometimes really - really - don't make you happy," one user added. "Ben Affleck is killing this roast like he killed the Batman franchise," someone else joked.

The reaction on social media platforms like X (formerly Twitter) was swift, with users labeling Affleck's performance as "the worst of the night," while others humorously noted, "Ben Affleck is killing this roast like he killed the Batman franchise."

Despite the mixed reviews, Affleck's impassioned defense of Brady and critique of toxic online culture has sparked a broader conversation about the nature of celebrity and fan interaction in the digital age.

While Affleck's rant stole the headlines, the roast itself was filled with biting humor and shocking revelations, especially regarding Brady's high-profile divorce from supermodel Gisele Bündchen. Host Kevin Hart didn't hold back, joking about Brady's departure from the New England Patriots and his personal life post-divorce.

Another comic's take

Kevin Hart opened the roast by joking that Brady left former coach Bill Belichick "high and dry." 

"You f---ed your coach, but let me tell you something, people, that's what you do to maintain your happiness. You sometimes got to f--- your coach. You who, who else f---ed their coach? Gisele. She f---ed that karate man."

"I mean, Jesus Christ, Tom," Hart said. "One of the smartest quarterbacks to ever play the game; how did you not see this coming? Eight f---ing karate classes a day? Eight karate classes a day? Eight karate classes a day, and she's still a white belt."

Comedian Nikki Glaser got in on the action too, making a quip about the rings—both Super Bowl and wedding—involved in Brady's life.

Despite the mixed reactions to his performance, Ben Affleck's fiery defense of Tom Brady and his attack on cyberbullying will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the most talked-about moments of the Netflix special
