Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez Reportedly See His Grammys Meme a Little Differently

Must read

preview for Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s Relationship History

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez truly are well aware that his miserable appearance at the 2023 Grammys became social media’s favorite meme. Shortly after their seat filler spoke on TikTok about how the couple discovered Affleck was trending during the ceremony, a source told Entertainment Tonight that yes, they know, and they see the meme a bit differently.

“Jen and Ben are both aware of the memes of Ben circulating,” the source said. “She had shown him a few photos that night and he just brushed it off. He is not fazed by what the internet has to say about him.”

Lopez, meanwhile, does have a sense of humor about it: Overall, “they are not paying too much attention to them,” the source said. “Jen actually thinks some of the memes are funny.” Neither Lopez nor Affleck have personally spoken out on the memes yet.

But their seat filler at the Grammys said that Lopez alerted Affleck to the memes during the show. Her testimony echoes Entertainment Tonight‘s source: Affleck was very “oh god” about it all.

The user, @almostannna, said, “J.Lo showed Ben Affleck the phone and was like, ‘Oh my god, honey, look at this meme circulating about you,’ and he was like, ‘Oh god, this again.’ Like, he knew during the performance that he was a meme. Like he knew, and he also chose just not to change his expression. I love how unbothered that is. So, I know that she was like on her phone and saw it and was like, ‘Honey this is so funny, look at this,’ and he was like, ‘Jesus Christ.’”
