Ben Affleck’s speech was also given to a near-empty Senate chamber

Earlier this week, Seth Rogen gave an impassioned speech on Alzheimer’s to a Senate subcommittee. It was both amusing and heartfelt—watched by thousands of people online. It was later discovered that Rogen gave the speech to an almost empty chamber.


As it turns out, Rogen wasn’t the only celeb shafted by Senators this week . On Wednesday, Ben Affleck spoke to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the Congo. This is how many people were in the room.

Moral of the story: The government doesn’t care what you have to say, even if you’re a celeb.
