The porn world is a strange, often sleazy world. But James Deen, arguably the most famous adult film actor working today, has been able to maneuver his way through the landscape scandal-free, maintaining a likeable, boy next door image. That is, until now.
Last night, Stoya, an adult film actress and writer, tweeted about Deen, accusing the actor, who has also appeared in more mainstream work including Paul Schrader's The Canyons alongside Lindsay Lohan, of rape. In her tweets, which you can see below, Stoya expresses her disgust at the way people have been perceiving Deen as a feminist figure. Her second tweet (TW) elaborated on the rape.
That thing where you log in to the internet for a second and see people idolizing the guy who raped you as a feminist. That thing sucks.— Stoya (@stoya) November 28, 2015
James Deen held me down and fucked me while I said no, stop, used my safeword. I just can't nod and smile when people bring him up anymore.— Stoya (@stoya) November 28, 2015
Stoya and Deen not only worked together in a couple of films in the past, but they also dated back in 2013. She hasn't said anything else since her tweets last night.
