    :facepalm:
    Batman vs. Superman’s Ben Aflleck tweeted earlier today about the card counting scandal he found himself in this past weekend.

    The comment was a retweet from The Howard Stern Show, where Howard Stern defended Affleck and said that the situation was simply proof that Las Vegas casinos don’t let their patrons win. Affleck said that Stern made a good point.

    Affleck was kicked out of the Hard Rock in Las Vegas for allegedly counting cards Affleck was reportedly playing blackjack at a high rollers’ table when he was spotted counting cards by security. Hard Rock banned him from playing blackjack at the casino.

    Go figure! Howard goes to bat for one of Jimmy Kimmel's friends. Maybe he he and Beth will be spending Christmas in Cabo with the Afflecks and Kimmels this year.

    "Robin, my friends Ben and Jennifer invited Beff and I over this weekend. He wanted to make a party in my honor, but I was busy doing show prep. Jennifer is in love with Beff Robin, its a whole thing."

    Ben Affleck lives in Howard's Manhattan building, they are neighbors like with Regis.

    I still think it is ridiculous that card counting will get you thrown out of casinos. It isn't all that easy to do and it really doesn't give you as much of a advantage as people think.

    But I am still convinced that the only reason Howard is defending Affleck is because he is Jimmy's friend and he wants to get in good with him.

    Affleck lives in the Pacific Palisades on the same street as Matt Damon and JJ Abrams. Damon until a few years ago lived in NY, but Affleck I think has lived in LA for decades.

    Counting cards is not illegal. It's called USING YOUR FUCKING BRAIN.

    And Howard's right on this one.. those bastards in Vegas will never let you win.

    Doesn't it take some supercomputer type genius to count cards? Maybe Ben has had everyone fooled over the years.

    I did counting while playing black jack in casinos too. I counted the money in my bank account after years of playing blackjack,it wasn`t pretty.
