Shauna Sexton: You Think I Sent Ben Affleck to Rehab?!?

by at .  Updated at .

Yes, Shauna Sexton makes a living by taking off her clothes.

But the Playboy model is not about to take it from misguided and very mean critics.

No way and no how, people.

Sexton rose to mainstream fame a few weeks ago after it came out that she was spending time with Affleck.

Almost immediately after the actor split from long-time girlfriend Lindsay Shookus, paparazzi snapped pictures of him out and about with Sexton.

And then almost immediately after that, Affleck checked into a rehab facility for the third time.

Putting two and two together and jumping to a really dumb conclusion, some folks out there blamed Sextion for Affleck's troubles.

They figured Affleck would have remained clean and sober if not for Sexton's bad influence, which is obviously absurd.

But plenty of people out there are absurd, especially when given the chance to write things to strangers on the Internet.

Which brings us to the photo above.

In response to a follower on Instagram who accused her of getting Affleck “thrown in rehab," Sexton clapped right on back.

And she did so with force.

"I love to drink and party! Absolutely dude. Most 22 year olds do. Yes you’re correct," she wrote to a hater, acknowleding a couple run-ins with the law and adding:

"I got put in the drunk tank when I was 17 for having a fake ID and drinking underage at a bar in Virginia Beach, and despite the fact most people have used a fake ID as well as drank underage, it was a dumb mistake on my behalf and an embarrassing one at that.

"Then the weekend of my 21st birthday I got obliterated and wound up getting left at a bar at the ocean front in Virginia Beach.. where I was again taken to the drunk tank for being intoxicated publicly ..while attempting to find a ride home."

She continued:

"Do these mistakes define me? No, stupid minuscule shit I learned from. Do these mistakes mean that I am human? Yes. Do these mistakes mean i would disrespect someone’s hard earned sobriety by drinking with them or in front of them? Hell no.

"I have limitless respect people who have the humility and maturity to admit when they need to fix something in their life. I have even more respect for those who take action and actually do something about it."

And when it comes to Affleck in particular?

"With that being said, Ben is a grown ass man, baby. He makes his own decisions. Blaming a 22 year old for someone’s 3rd time in rehab is just ridiculous.

"He is human. I am human. You are human. We all are going to fuck up it’s just a matter of learning from it. Don’t be so quick to throw shade on people. Take a step back, accept that we are all on our own journey, and be a little less critical."


What a perfect response.

Ben Affleck and a Fan

Affleck admitted himself to a treatment facility back on August 22.

In the days that followed, multiple reports gave credit to ex-wife Jennifer Garner for swooping in, staging a mini intervention and convincing Affleck that he needed professional assistance.

For someone who has a disease, this clearly would have been the case at some point whether or not he ever met Sexton.

Insiders have said Affleck tumbled off the wagon awhile back and recognized fairly quickly that he was in trouble.

It's unclear at the moment just when Affleck will emerge from rehab, but we hope he's a healthier man when he does so.

Best of luck, Ben.
