BEN AFFLECK: Joins BLM Protest with Girlfriend

Ben Affleck and girlfriend Ana de Armas joined protestors in Venice, California on Tuesday.

The two stars were spotted at a rally denouncing the demolition of a historic black church in the area. Ben was photographed holding up two signs — one of which read, “Save First Baptist Church of Venice,” while a smaller one read, “Black Lives Matter.”

Ana stood beside Ben in a mask as she clapped.

A friend of Affleck’s tells People magazine, “Ben wants to continue to be a model for his children. They talk about these important issues.”

According to L.A. Curbed, the church has been sold to a private holding company with plans to turn it into town homes.
