Jennifer Lopez roasted for using Ben Affleck’s pledge to promote latest venture


Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s engagement drew a lot of emotional reactions Friday night and Saturday morning, but some people aren’t quite so thrilled. Lopez broke the news Friday night, but not in the traditional way. It wasn’t done in a press release, interview, or even a social media post. She instead asked fans to sign up for her newsletter, On the JLo. After receiving a few standard updates, subscribers received a short video showing Lopez wearing her engagement ring.

While Bennifer’s followers were simply thrilled with the pair, others saw the reveal as a business tactic. While a simple social media post would suffice, Lopez took advantage of the situation to get an eye on her latest venture. Some thought the reveal was artificially played to sound more authentic when it was more of a promotional tool to On the JLo. Scroll to read some of the reactions.
