The article, along with jokes from social media had many fans of Ben Affleck stepping up to say that he was being body shamed, but Affleck stood up for himself in a amusing tweet. The piece started with, of course, the writer noting Affleck's enormous phoenix tattoo on his back, which had been the talk of the town since he was recently seen on Honolulu beach during the production of his upcoming project with Netflix, Triple Frontier.
Affleck was first spotted with the tattoo in December 2015, but denied it was real, telling Extra TV's Mario Lopez that he just got a fake, temporary tattoo for a movie. "Thick skin bolstered by garish". "It's not one man's job to tell another man what he can to his back". Even the New Yorker took shots at him in an article titled "The Great Sadness of Ben Affleck", which described the actor as looking "despondent", called his tattoo "garish", and pointed out his "pooching" gut.
Hopefully Affleck can give fans a better look at his ink in another training montage for the Batman movie, that is if he actually returns to the role.
While a third said: "Ben Affleck's back tattoo is, and I'm saying this without hyperbole, one of the funniest goddamn things I've ever seen in my entire life".
Affleck's exes have also weighed in.

Ben and Jennifer are still friendly as they work to co-parent their three kids-Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, five.
Recently, Affleck's close friend Matt Damon protected him in an interview with The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. "Am I the ashes in this scenario?" "I refuse to be the ashes", Garner said back then. "There is something about this exhausted father that reflexively induces panic", Fry concluded.
"You know what we would say in my hometown about that?"
