Ben Affleck's Tom Brady roast slammed by Nikki Glaser amid Jennifer Lopez split rumors

Lopez and Affleck's recent time apart sparked divorce rumors

Kevin Smith describes Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's wedding: 'Inspiring'

'Clerks' actor and director Kevin Smith spoke with Fox News Digital at the 'Clerks III' premiere about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's Georgia wedding, praising Lopez's decorating skills and the couple's relationship. 

Ben Affleck is still catching criticism for his Tom Brady roast while also dealing with rumors he has split from wife Jennifer Lopez.

During Netflix's three-hour live special, Affleck spent nearly six minutes of his time at the mic criticizing the retired football quarterback's fans instead of delivering jokes.

Comedian Nikki Glaser, who also took the mic at Brady's roast, slammed the actor's set and revealed she has not watched it again because she does not like to "watch people bomb."

"He didn't prepare," the comedian explained during a sit-down on Barstool's KFC Radio. "He's someone who's famous enough that thinks like this is probably beneath them to do this. And so I'm just going to do a favor. It's not going to be that big of a deal."

"And then you do it, and you're like, ‘Oh, this is way bigger than I thought it would be. I was kind of phoning it in.’"

Glaser noted that Affleck's possible pitch to the show writers seemed to be about him, not Brady.

"There were so many jokes that didn't get used that could have filled up an entire set of his that would have been amazing," Glaser said. "But … either … they couldn't get him on the phone enough to work out something, he didn't practice enough, or he just picked a bad premise, and then he had to stick to it the whole time. And … it didn't work right away. And so it's not going to work later."

The "Gone Girl" star spoke about the mean comments the former quarterback and other players have to read online from "fans" instead of mocking Brady.

"Fans have your back," Affleck said. "You guys out there talking s---, all right, behind your f---ing keyboard, that doesn’t make you a fan. That makes you a b----.

"I can’t think of a more f---ed up, dysfunctional, horrible working system designed to perpetually make people feel awful."

After Affleck's appearance at the roast, he skipped out on the Met Gala the following night. Lopez showed up solo for the event, which she co-chaired. Lopez dazzled in a sheer Schiaparelli gown encrusted with gems. The "Let's Get Loud" singer has attended the gala 14 times but has only been a co-chair once.
