Ben Affleck is getting shade from all directions.
Affleck’s ex, Jennifer Lopez, appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, where she was asked to play a game of Plead the Fifth, allowing her to cop out of answering one of three questions. After refusing the first question, Lopez was forced to give her honest opinion about Affleck’s colorful new back tattoo of a huge phoenix.

Luckily, Lopez seems pretty open to sharing her true thoughts about Affleck’s new ink.
“It’s awful!” she exclaims. “I want to tell him that. I want to tell him, ‘What are you doing?'”
She continues, “It has too many colors. His tattoos always have too many colors. They shouldn’t be so colorful, you know what I mean? They should be cooler.”
And Lopez isn’t even the only one throwing shade at Affleck’s new tattoo. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Affleck’s estranged wife Jennifer Garner also dissed his back piece, saying, “You know what we would say in my hometown about that? ‘Bless his heart.’ A phoenix rising from the ashes. Am I the ashes in this scenario?”
Garner continued, “I take umbrage. I refuse to be the ashes.”
Since their breakup in 2004, Lopez has spoken publicly about her relationship with Affleck a number of times. In 2014, she dished on the style advice she used to give him — and apparently wishes she could still give him now — on another episode of Watch What Happens Live.
“I did kind of like, say, ‘You’re a movie star! You should wear a suit! You should do this with your hair!'” she remembered. “For sure. I mean, I do that. By the way, guys do that to girls, too: ‘I like that dress better than the other dress.'”
