Ben Affleck had one of the worst white person problems ever -- his pricey vintage Chevy Malibu SS broke down on the mean streets of ritzy Pacific Palisades! TMZ

Ben Affleck, 40, was leaving the fifth annual Playing for Good poker tournament benefiting the Geffen Playhouse when his car quit running. Affleck had to rely on the good help of the valet who brought over his own vehicle to jump the vintage Chevy Malibu SS to get it running and back on the road the afternoon of June 10.

Later in the day, Ben was presented with Guy of the Year award at the 2013 Spike TV Guys Choice award.

TMZ created their own “white people problem” video to add to their article. TMZ states, “Ben Affleck had one of the worse white person problems ever…” The article was posted at 12:01 a.m.; hours after the incident occurred.

Apparently these days being white has something to do with your car breaking down.

Judging from the comments, readers were not too impressed with the sloppy, last-minute work.

“How is a car breaking down a whites only problem?” one user asked. “Whoever wrote this story wanted to do it quickly and go to sleep.”

Way to go TMZ, way to go.

What do you think about TMZ’s “white people problems” and sticking Ben Affleck into that category?
