It’s funny how some people just flat out lie and that’s okay apparently. But if you are stupid enough to defend yourself when they do, you are the bad guy? Really? This is just getting so ridiculous.
LIE: I am not an employee of LA Direct Models.
But hey what’s a little thing like the truth when you can just make up your own version?
While it is true I work under contract to run the twitter of LA Direct Models, I also work with several other agents, porn stars, and studios. I’ve been in this industry for 22 years. I work with MANY people. I am not now, nor have I ever been an employee of LA Direct Models.
You can argue that I’m just splitting hairs, as I do in fact do work with them, which is true, but Adria Rae goes out of her way to make it clear she does not work for LA Direct, and to define the employee/employer relationship. So if those rules apply to her, then they apply to me as well.
I spend no more than 5 hours per month on any work I do for them. I am no more an employee of LA Direct Models than I am for one for Twistys, Brazzers, Vivid Video, Elegant Angel, Sofi Ryan, or Bella Rose.
LIES: I did not harass her twitter or say a single thing to HER. I made a series of like 11 tweets, none of which mentioned her by name in a single one of those tweets. It was only when she saw my tweets, that she herself responded and outed herself as the person I may or may not have been talking about.
By her own admission, I couldn’t have tagged her twitter anyway, as she had me blocked. I admit I said some harsh things. I said that the one regret I had over the span of my entire career is that I didn’t speak up when she and her band of bully friends attacked a girl who tried to kill herself, and at the time I did not speak up against them. She and her band of bullies would go on and do that very same thing to other girls.
I don’t regret saying those things on twitter, because are true. I should have been a stronger person. I should have tried harder to help those girls. I did not. I backed down. I was wrong for that and it honestly one of the biggest regrets of my career.
LIES: I have no idea about any trip to Florida. I don’t know about which she speaks there, other than the one trip she took to Orlando and that was the Lana Rhoades incident. But that wasn’t what I was talking about.
Now I did tweet about a story a producer once told me which was the time some girl (who I did not mention by name) took so much X she thought she was going to die and then later used that same story to twist it say she almost killed herself to get sympathy and try and get out of a kill fee. Although I should mention I never once mentioned her or anyone by name. SHE decided to come forward herself and lay claim to those stories being about her.
So by your own admission, you witness abuse of other female performers but did or said nothing because you thought it would never happen to you. REALLY?! Umm okay. So that’s good to know how you really feel about other girls in the industry.
LIES: I do not now, nor have I ever had access to 100s of twitter accounts. I mean damn, that would be impressive if I did. But hey, who cares about a little thing like the truth when you can just flat out lie?
Beyond that, Twitter themselves said they don’t care about the number of reports that an account gets reported by, they only take into account the exact things said and base their decision to ban an account (or not to ban) based on the messages and their context in which they were said.
In fact here is the exact thing Twitter says:
In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.
- Some Tweets may seem to be abusive when viewed in isolation, but may not be when viewed in the context of a larger conversation. While we accept reports of violations from anyone, sometimes we also need to hear directly from the target to ensure that we have proper context.
- The number of reports we receive does not impact our assessment of whether something violates the Twitter Rules.
Adria Rae knows this isn’t true for another reason. She knows this because Twitter themselves told her why they banned her account and that she wouldn’t be getting it back and why that is the case.
In closing, I’m going to leave with these words from Adria Rae’s own mouth about her agent.
As a millennial, I was like, he’s fucked. I know how to use and manipulate social media so well that it doesn’t matter how much truth … he could …
From that point, I decided enough was enough. It’s time to make this post.
This is not okay.
It’s okay to be upset and fight against something someone did to you, but tell the truth when you do. Fight against them for the things they’ve actually done to you and don’t lie about other things.
If you have to lie to fight your battle, that only shows you are on shaky ground, to begin with.
To be honest, I would have dropped it all, as her friend called me and ask me to do and never spoken of it or her again. But she wanted to go on BlogTalkRadio and Tumblr and YouTube and post her story, well I can do the same. It works both ways.’
