Ben Affleck has addressed the negative side of the viral ‘Sad Affleck’ Meme.
The 2016 meme is a photo of the Batman actor whilst he was listening to negative critic reviews of the movie during an interview with Yahoo! UK.

It went viral online due to his dismayed look. However, this week, Ben Affleck has revealed that he doesn’t like the way the meme portrays him to his kids.

During an interview with the Los Angeles Times on Friday (January 7th), he said that it was difficult when his kids “started seeing the internet for themselves” before adding:

“Even the ‘Sad Affleck’ meme – that was funny to me. I mean, there’s nobody who hasn’t felt that way at a junket. But then my kids see it and I think, ‘Oh, are they going to think their dad is fundamentally sad or they have to worry about me?’ That’s really tough.”

Ben may not be a fan of the meme but the rest of the internet certainly is.
