    Ben Affleck insisted on censoring the fact that one of his ancestors owned slaves from PBS show “Finding Your Roots,” the Sony email hack has revealed.

    In a hacked Sony email from July 22, 2014, now available on WikiLeaks, the show’s host, Henry Louis Gates Jr., writes to Sony USA chief Michael Lynton asking for advice: “One of our guests has asked us to edit out something about one of his ancestors–the fact that he owned slaves. Now, four or five of our guests this season descend from slave owners, including Ken Burns. We’ve never had anyone ever try to censor or edit what we found. He’s a megastar. What do we do?”

    Lynton’s advice was to take Affleck’s family secret out of the show, as long as nobody would find out. The Sony chairman and CEO writes, “On the doc the big question is who knows that the material is in the doc and is being taken out. I would take it out if no one knows, but if it gets out that you are editing the material based on this kind of sensitivity then it gets tricky.”

    Gates, who is friends with Lynton and wrote “I need your advice,” goes on to admit that hiding facts would be a violation of PBS rules. “As for the doc: all my producers would know; his PR agency the same as mine, and everyone there has been involved trying to resolve this; my agent at CAA knows. And PBS would know. To do this would be a violation of PBS rules, actually, even for Batman.”

    When Lynton responds that “it is tricky because it may get out that you made the change and it comes down to editorial integrity,” Gates responds, “It would embarrass him and compromise our integrity.”

    Affleck will be forced to throw himself off a bridge. Perfect.

    Order him some Mexican food while forcing him to watch the Alien DVD. He'll explode.

    That, he is embarrassed by. Yet he has never apologized to the world for J-Lo and Gigli. :blabla:

    Now there is an explanation why he is becoming more politically outspoken: he has that stupid PC guilt. It's not due to an independent moral outrage; it's just ordinary self hatred. Now he can't run for office as a self righteous liberal democrat.

    Most of these liberal assholes have racist skeletons they keep locked in a closet while conducting themselves like preachy PC faggots.

    especially when he has done so much of his own to be ashamed of.

    He needs to put his money where his liberal mouth is and pay the reparations.

    It's ridiculous and it runs along the same line of thinking that people whose ancestors were slaves deserve special treatment and reparations today.

    Where is TMZ?

    "Paltrow Dated Negro Slave Owner!"

    We could be rid of two pompous, self righteous PC liberals at one time.

    Conservatives don't need to be politically correct.
