Jennifer Lopez victim of despicable racist remarks when she was in a relationship with Ben Affleck

There were the Brangelina. There were the Kimye and the Jelena. But we often forget, in July 2002, THE most coveted couple in Hollywood, it was the Bennifers, the shock duo formed by Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck.
