Olympic Skier Gus Kenworthy Adopts Puppy From Korean Dog Meat Farm

Team USA’s Gus Kenworthy is once again wrapping up the Winter Olympics with a rescue dog. The 26-year-old Olympic freestyle skier took to Instagram on Friday (February 23) during the 2018 Winter Olympics to reveal that he and his boyfriend Matthew Wilkas rescued a puppy named Beemo from one of South Korea’s many dog meat [...] Team USA’s Gus Kenworthy is once again wrapping up the Winter Olympics with a rescue dog. The 26-year-old Olympic freestyle skier took to Instagram on Friday (February 23) during the 2018 Winter Olympics to reveal that he and his boyfriend Matthew Wilkas rescued a puppy named Beemo from one of South Korea’s many dog meat farms. “This morning Matt and I had a heart-wrenching visited to one of the 17,000 dog farms here in South Korea,” Gus captioned the slideshow below. “Across the country there are 2.5 million dogs being raised for food in some of the most disturbing conditions imaginable. Yes, there is an argument to be made that eating dogs is a part of Korean culture. And, while [I] don’t personally agree with it, I do agree that it’s not my place to impose western ideals on the people here. The way these animals are being treated, however, is completely inhumane and culture should never be a scapegoat for cruelty.” Beemo was one of 90 dogs living in cold, cramped outdoor cages and neglectful, cruel conditions. Good news: Gus shared that the farm they visited is being shut down, and all of the pups are being flown to the U.S. and Canada, where they will be put up for adoption with the help of Humane Society International. “I’m hoping to use this visit as an opportunity to raise awareness to the inhumanity of the dog meat trade here in Korea and the plight of dogs everywhere, including back home in the US where millions of dogs are in need of loving homes!” Gus added. “Go to @hsiglobal’s page to see how you can help.” Gus also rescued five stray dogs at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. See his full post below. This morning Matt and I had a heart-wrenching visited to one of the 17,000 dog farms here in South Korea. Across the country there are 2.5 million dogs being raised for food in some of the most disturbing conditions imaginable. Yes, there is an argument to be made that eating dogs is a part of Korean culture. And, while don't personally agree with it, I do agree that it's not my place to impose western ideals on the people here. The way these animals are being treated, however, is completely inhumane and culture should never be a scapegoat for cruelty. I was told that the dogs on this particular farm were kept in "good conditions" by comparison to other farms. The dogs here are malnourished and physically abused, crammed into tiny wire-floored pens, and exposed to the freezing winter elements and scorching summer conditions. When it comes time to put one down it is done so in front of the other dogs by means of electrocution sometimes taking up to 20 agonizing minutes. Despite the beliefs of the Korean public at large, these dogs are no different from the ones we call pets back home. Some of them were even pets at one time and were stolen or found and sold into the dog meat trade. Luckily, this particular farm (thanks to the hard work of the Humane Society International and the cooperation of a farmer who's seen the error of his ways) is being permanently shut down and all 90 of the dogs here will be brought to the US and Canada where they'll find their fur-ever homes. I adopted the sweet baby in the first pic (we named her Beemo) and she'll be coming to the US to live with me as soon as she's through with her vaccinations in a short couple of weeks. I cannot wait to give her the best life possible! There are still millions of dogs here in need of help though (like the Great Pyrenees in the 2nd pic who was truly the sweetest dog ever). I'm hoping to use this visit as an opportunity to raise awareness to the inhumanity of the dog meat trade here in Korea and the plight of dogs everywhere, including back home in the US where millions of dogs are in need of loving homes! Go to @hsiglobal's page to see how you can help. #dogsarefriendsnotfood #adoptdontshop ❤️🐶 A post shared by gus kenworthy (@guskenworthy) on Feb 23, 2018 at 8:10am PST.....»»

Joel Osteen Has A Message For Twitter Devils Who Think His Church Didn"t Do Enough To Help Hurricane Harvey Victims!

Joel Osteen is unbothered by the critics. In a new interview, the megachurch pastor spoke on the backlash he received for not opening his Lakewood Church doors sooner to shelter Hurricane Harvey victims.

In a new interview, the megachurch pastor spoke on the backlash he received for not opening his Lakewood Church doors sooner to shelter Hurricane Harvey victims. For those who missed it, Osteen had to make a round of toothy interviews to address accusations saying Lakewood kept its doors closed to hurricane evacuees, and he had a rosary of excuses for doing so. Related: Tyler Perry Donates $1 Million To Hurricane Harvey Relief! Now with Lakewood finally giving shelter to a worthy amount of displaced locals, the church leader has no desire to answer to the haters on social media -- because he's only worried about serving @God. Speaking to ET's Kevin Frazier on Thursday, he explained: "You know, I'm not really concerned about the Twitter critics. We're concerned with these people [victims now at the church] and how they move forward. And there were safety issues that people don't understand. But, I really believe that if people were in my shoes, they would have done the same thing. When the building is clear, when it's safe, we can start taking people. That's what we have done for 60 years. We love helping people and that's what our message is all about." Originally, Lakewood posted that it was "inaccessible due to severe flooding." However, videos shared on Twitter appeared to show the 16,000-seat Houston church in rather dry surroundings. Osteen told critics not to go by those pictures, because he has others that prove the building flooded (Of course, you'll have to take his word for it): "I think another thing that people don't understand -- it could flood. That street could flood and in 14 hours it can be down. ... So, you can't go by that. I have video of it flooded on either Saturday night or Sunday night, I can't remember. But, you know, it can go down in 14, 15 hours." Lakewood eventually opened its doors on Tuesday. In a round of subsequent interviews, Osteen said the city didn't originally ask the church to be a shelter, but instead a "distribution center." Related: Miranda Lambert Has Rescued Over A Hundred Dogs In Texas! Still, that doesn't mean Lakewood couldn't have been better prepared for the disaster. He admitted: "Knowing what I know now, I would have put staff in here before the storm hit, put beds, do everything we could to be prepared. When it catches us by surprise, even when the cities overflow and, you know, nobody dreams that shelters will overflow. ... Hindsight, it's 20/20, but we got to move forward and do what we've done for the last 60 years and take care of these people, help them rebuild their lives, bring hope to their spirits and let them know that they can come out of this stronger than before." Despite Osteen's charitable efforts, a deluge of haters continued to rain down on him on social media. Though the 54-year-old didn't seem to care, as that's a layer of hell he has no intention on giving energy to: "I don't spend any energy on the Twitter universe or social media. And I don't mean that disrespectfully. I just don't put any energy into it. I mean, life is too short to put energy into negative emotion and I feel at peace because we did the right thing….Hey, my reputation is in God's hands and he can take care of that. We're going to continue to help people." That's right, Joel. Judgment is for the Lord -- not your 6.22 million followers on the platform you "don't spend any energy on."

A total of eight jurors will be selected from a pool of 60, and each were asked 35 questions, focusing on whether they are fans of Swift and whether they saw the photo of Mueller and the now-27-year-old.

The pastor’s father-in-law Donald Iloff released a statement on behalf of the church, saying the doors were never closed. “We have never closed our doors. We will continue to be a distribution center for those in need,” Donald told CNN. “We are prepared to shelter people once the cities and county shelters reach capacity. Lakewood will be a value to the community in the aftermath of this storm in helping our fellow citizens rebuild their lives.” The church came under fire when their Facebook page directed people to other shelters due to the church being “inaccessible due to severe flooding.” Social media users fired back, proving that the church was actually accessible......»»

50 Brain Hacks You Can Use to Supercharge Your Mind

Lifehack is a word that is prevalent all over the internet today, and each day people are inundated with these small vague tips about things that they can integrate into their daily lives to improve them. You may adopt one of these habits for a few days but nothing sticks, because lifehacks don’t often include the why – which is almost more important than the how. The reasons you want to hack your mindset, your fitness, and your nutrition are abundantly clear. You deserve to be productive, healthy, and feel good about your body and your mind. With the hacks below, you get the how and the why on changes that you can make, big or small, that will transform you into your best self and allow you to create the life you deserve. Fitness & Health 1. Do yoga: There is a lot more to a yoga practice than spending way too much money on Lululemon; yoga can help you approach every aspect of your life in a better way and eliminate stress all while making you look great. 2. Fight insomnia caused by electronics: As nice as it would be to be the kind of person who gets off your laptop or cell phone an hour before bedtime, that isn’t realistic for most people. The problem is that the blue light emitted from the screens inhibits the production of melatonin (which puts you to sleep), luckily there are plenty of apps that cause these screens to emit warmer light to help you get a good night’s sleep. 3. Fix your Circadian Rhythm: Insomnia is a highly prevalent problem in the world today, which in turn leads to groggy mornings, unhealthy eating, and limited productivity; by aligning your sleep rhythm with the natural rhythm of the sun, you can solve a lot of these problems. 4. Get enough sun: Time in the sun gives you more than a great tan; it helps your body create vitamin D which helps your body absorb calcium and helps your cells to communicate better. 5. Go float yourself: Float tanks are also called sensory deprivation tanks, and they eliminate all incoming stimuli; this helps your body reach an elevated state of relaxation and has many mental and physical benefits. 6. Invest in your workouts: The Pact app can be used to earn money for healthy actions you take, and you are also financially penalized for not meeting your goals. You can use this system to keep your mind motivated to work out, even when your body isn’t. 7. Jam out while you work out: Music can create bursts of strength when a song you particularly like comes on, and can also enhance your enjoyment of certain activities that may have otherwise been difficult to enjoy; when working out, music has been proven to delay signs of fatigue and aid with endurance. 8. Lift heavy: Lifting heavier weights increases the endorphins your body releases during your workout which leads to a positive and sometimes even euphoric feeling causing you [...].....»»

Top 10 Strangest Warning Labels

We wanted to call this list “Top 10 Most Useless Warning Labels,” but the world that we live in is so unpredictable, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Perhaps that was the thought process behind some of these warning labels, and at this rate, we can only hope so. Otherwise, natural selection is certainly gaining on us. This Throat Cancer Pamphlet This looks suspiciously like someone printed out a WebMD article… At any rate, if you weren’t clear on the fact that having a throat is a precursor to throat cancer, now you know! Maybe they were offering screenings for it and wanted to cast a wide net? This Letter Opener Staples is a company with heart, and they wanted you to know how much they value your safety as one of their beloved customers, so they took the time to put warning labels on all of the products that pose a potential threat to that safety. What they assumed you were going to do with this letter opener that necessitates the use of safety goggles is beyond me. At least they don’t judge! This Coat Hanger You can see from the example how serious of a threat this is. That poor man is likely permanently disfigured from his experience with swallowing coat hangers, and this cleaner wanted to make sure that it could never happen again. If you can open your mouth wide enough to accommodate a hanger without bending it, you should call the Guinness Book of World Records, not get it stuck in your throat. This Dog’s Medication Sometimes dogs will need a prescription filled, and most pharmacies around the country fill them because medication for dogs is similar to that for babies. Usually, it’s just a very weak dose of a standard medication that an adult would need. Those pharmacies take the same care in warning your dog about the way that this drug could interact with alcohol or operate heavy machinery. Unless your dog is Brian Griffin, though, this likely is of no use. This Hat Do not put it on your foot or your backside for any reason! We don’t know what happened to the last guy who did it! Just don’t! Seriously, though, what has this world come to if something as simple and straightforward as a hat comes with usage instructions? This Fabric Marker Just in case the term vanishing wasn’t clear, this manufacturer wanted to protect you from the plight of disappearing ink. This is actually a very cool product, used to temporarily mark fabric for cutting or sewing so you can get it just right. After a while, the ink will fade off of the fabric completely. Why you would reach for it first in times of signing important documents is beyond me, but, now you know better. This T-Shirt Applique This was a picture of Shrek and friends that you could iron onto the front of your shirt to show off just how cool you were. T-shirt decoration options are way more widely available [...] The post Top 10 Strangest Warning Labels appeared first on PopCrunch......»»

The 32-year-old Welsh actor described how the memorable scene where he got eaten by his own dogs came to pass. “It was the last scene I did, so I did suspect they’d actually let it happen for real,” Iwan told Jimmy about. “Realistically, I wasn’t anywhere near any dogs.” “I walked in, and I saw the dogs, and I think it was a couple of seasons previous, it was the same dogs, I was like, ‘hi doggy!’ and they were like, don’t look the dog in the eye!” Iwan continued, “They’re not like pets, they’re guard dogs, they’re trained to be vicious, really, and they only listen to their owner, so if you have eye contact with them they take that as a direct threat. So I wasn’t allowed to be anywhere near these dogs.” Iwan revealed that the scene that aired was all CGI. There may have been one shot where there’s an actual dog behind him in a cage.

Kevin Hart shared a HIGHlariously relatable Instagram Story on Wednesday about being left home alone with the kids and dogs as his wife Eniko Parrish went out for "a couple hours." Video: Kevin Hart And The Foo Fighters Stole The Show On SNL The Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle star says he was fine watching the three kids, including newborn Kenzo Kash, for a while: "I had it under control in the beginning, I really did, but then the baby started crying, so I went up and I grabbed the baby." Then after he "changed the baby's diaper" suddenly he heard barking... "Came to find out my dogs got outside. Not really sure how -- my big Doberman opened the goddamned door." Um, what? Find out what happened to give Kevin a "mini breakdown" (below): "I got the baby, so I call my other kids — my 12- and my 10-year-old — they don't hear me, 'cause they got the virtual-reality game set on, so they can't hear shit I'm saying. That's when it got real. I had to put the baby down in the crib so I could go get the dogs. Soon as I put the baby down, the baby started crying. I somehow hit my foot on the rocking chair, twist my ankle. Ouch. Now I'm going outside to get the dogs, but I still got the baby stuff hooked up to the end of the chair, so I knock all that shit over — Diaper Genie, everything. I say fuck it. Shit got real. I go grab the dogs, get the dogs inside, the baby's crying still... gotta go grab the baby. At the same time I grab the baby, I go inside the room and knock the VR (virtual reality) set right off my damn kids' heads. They said, ‘What'd we do?' I said, ‘Nothing, man. Dad just had a mini breakdown. Y'all turn the volume down on that shit so you can hear me next time I call you.'" Sounds more like Mr. Mom than Home Alone tbh, but we'd be good with Kevin remaking either. Especially if he was playing an 8-year-old. Ha! [Image via 20th Century Fox/Instagram.].....»»

On Sunday, the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum took to Snapchat to reveal that she received a visit from animal control as someone accused her family of not properly taking care of their dogs. Now, if any of you follow Mrs. Biermann's social media presence, you know the Bravolebrities take EXCELLENT care of their pups. Thus, the fam was rightfully pissed after the animal control visit. Related: Kim & Kenya Almost Got Into A Physical Altercation While Filming RHOA! Kim Z. was upset AF as she dished in a vid: "Apparently somebody thought it would be really cute to call the animal control center on my dogs today and say they were not being taken care of. I am utterly fucking disgusted and appalled by the person who did this." What a horrible prank. Still, animal control was quick to clear the Biermanns of any wrongdoing, as the reality TV vet added: "Of course we are in the clear because my dogs are very well taken care of... I will no longer be sharing any part of my dogs and their life on my social media any longer." She went on to explain that she has even spent $3,000 of her own money to take care of three rescue puppies, named Shiloh, Sage, and Stella. Good for you, girl! Kim wasn't the only one frustrated by this situation as her husband, Kroy Biermann, took over her Snapchat and went through everything they do to take care of the pups. We mean, Kroy documented every type of food, ball, and leash that those animals come into contact with. Oh snap! The athlete also warned: "I will find out who did it and there WILL be repercussions for what you've done." We've got literal chills. Hopefully, whoever did this to the Biermanns knows they've made a mistake and don't try it again. [Image via Instagram/Snapchat.].....»»

Ben Affleck Faces Sexual Misconduct Questions On The Late Show & TODAY — WATCH!

Ben Affleck is facing his sexual harassment accusations head on. As you may know, the 45-year-old actor is currently on a press tour for Justice League — but interviewers would be remiss to not bring up Affleck's connection to the Harvey Weinstein allegations, as well as his own controversial behavior. On Thursday night, the father of three [...] Ben Affleck is facing his sexual harassment accusations head on. As you may know, the 45-year-old actor is currently on a press tour for Justice League -- but interviewers would be remiss to not bring up Affleck's connection to the Harvey Weinstein allegations, as well as his own controversial behavior. On Thursday night, the father of three appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, who didn't hesitate to ask Affleck the tough questions about the clear abuse of power against women in the industry. Even though the celeb nervously quipped, "This is a comedy show, correct?" initially, we applaud him for not shying away -- and encouraging everyone to believe the women (and men!) coming forward. Related: The Justice League Reviews Are In When asked specifically about the disgraced producer who helped begin his career, Jennifer Garner's ex said: "You know, for me, it was awful to see the extent of these terrible crimes. It was hideous. I haven't worked for Harvey in more than 15 years, but nonetheless, I felt this attachment. I did movies like Good Will Hunting, Shakespeare in Love and Chasing Amy—early movies that I really loved doing, when I still was totally brand new. And so, it sort of tainted that a little bit to realize while we were having these experiences and making these movies, there were people who were suffering and dealing with awful experiences. I didn't really know what to do with that, you know? It's hard to know." As we reported, the actor has since decided to donate his residual money from Miramax movies to RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) and Film Independent: "I didn't want to sort of cash a check form the guy, and I thought, 'Maybe I can feel OK about it if it's going to a good cause.'" Colbert went on to give Affleck the opportunity to comment on his own allegations of "sexual impropriety" -- to which the Argo star said: "What I was accused of by a woman was of touching her breast while giving her a hug. I don't remember it, but I absolutely apologized for it. I certainly don't think she's lying or making it up. It's just the kind of thing we have to, as men, I think, as we become more aware of this, be really, really mindful of our behavior and hold ourselves accountable and say, 'If I was ever part of the problem, I want to change. I want to be part of the solution.' And to not shy away from these awkward or strange encounters we might have had where we're sort of navigating and not knowing." Referencing a clip that went viral earlier this week, Affleck said: "I just did an interview where somebody asked me a question—it was a serious question, and I kind of felt uncomfortable and didn't know what to say and laughed awkwardly. It's just a tricky thing to try to handle. I think the most important thing to do is to support the voices coming forward, believe them, and create a business where more women are empowered and in place so less of this happens, and so there is a way of reporting this stuff so that people can feel safe doing it." The Oscar winner also acknowledged the privilege he has as a male in the business, explaining: "I thought I had a sense of the scope of the problem and I thought I understood it, and the truth is I really didn't. I didn't understand what it's like to be groped, to be harassed, to be interrupted, talked over, paid less, you know, pushed around, belittled—all the things that women deal with, that for me as a man, I have the privilege of not having to deal with. Part of this, for me, has been listening to people I really care about and love as they tell me stories of stuff that has happened to them—this is men and women—and recognizing it's a real thing. I'm not spokesman. I'm not a superhero. I can't change it by myself. I can just be accountable for myself and my actions." LOUDER FOR THOSE IN THE BACK, BEN!! You can watch the full segment (below): Ben spoke about the same issue on Friday morning with Savannah Guthrie by talking about the current cultural shift because of the courageous #MeToo movement: "It certainly feels like a really important moment. It feels like a time when survivors are finding their voice, and people—and I include include myself in this—are really discovering the terrible extent of this problem here in our country. I certainly don't think it's just limited to Hollywood. But I expect if you see it this prevalent in this industry, it must extend to finance, tech and all those other places, and it's really disturbing. It's also inspiring to see people come forward and assert themselves. That's very moving." As for whether he knew about Harvey's disgusting behavior, the director said: "I knew he was sleazy and kind of a bully, but unfortunately that wasn't that uncommon. I was brand new to Hollywood. I was 24 years old. I had never made a movie. I didn't know much of anything, really. It really is a shame, because although I stopped working with Harvey a long time ago, those movies hold a special place in my heart. To now look back on it and think, 'Gosh, some other people were going through something really ugly, difficult and terrible and disturbing and terrifying while that was happening,' is kind of...I don't know ... The only thing I can think to do is give my residuals from my Harvey movies to a couple of organizations that I think are making a difference, and try to reconcile that. It's a way for me to feel better about that early stage of my career, when I made those movies with him." When Guthrie asked Affleck to set the record straight about Rose McGowan's claim that she told Ben in the past about being attacked by Weinstein, he replied: "I don't really want to get into other people's individual stories, because I feel like those are their stories and they're entitled to tell as much or as little of those as they want. I believe Rose. I support her. I really like and admire her tenacity, and I wish her the best." Related: Jennifer Garner & Casey Affleck Helped Ben Check Into Rehab Ultimately, Ben said he's dedicated to "looking inward" and being accountable for his actions: "That's all you can do, certainly as a man in my position and recognizing how fortunate I am, recognizing the privilege that I have. I'm also really trying to open my eyes and hold myself accountable, because that's all we can really do. It's a lot harder than pointing a finger at everybody else, really asking, 'What have I done that's crossed the line? How can I do better? How can I be more respectful, more inclusive, more mindful of this?' That's the kind of person that I want to be." As for what he would have done differently, the A-lister admitted: "There's plenty of jokes I wouldn't have made, or things I wouldn't have done. It's a time when—and it's happened almost overnight—there's a heightened level of awareness. One of the good things about that is the self-consciousness of, 'How am I fitting into the world here? How are my actions affecting other people? How is this interaction going to leave this person feeling?' It's easy to sort of gloss over that stuff and get self-involved. The hard thing is really, as I said, to be mindful and live in the present moment." Watch his interview on TODAY (below): While we think Ben's past actions are inexcusable, we do appreciate him stepping into the dialogue and acknowledging his wrongdoing head-on, while calling for empowerment of women. These are the tough conversations we should all be having! P.S. to end on a light note, watch Ben reveal that Donald Trump would demand to appear in any movies filmed at his properties (lol) (below)!

10 Incredible Things Your Mind Can Do

Brains are incredible; they are complex and can even be terrifying at times when you consider just what they are capable of. Humans rarely ever use all of their brain power, and in some circumstances, our brains can be pushed into overdrive, and that’s when those capabilities come to light. Some of these things you may have heard of, but you’ll be learning more about why and how your brain does the incredible things that it does in the list below. Earworms, or having a song stuck in your head, has without a doubt happened to you in the past. The reason that this happens is that your brain gets stuck on a loop when it can’t finish a thought. So, when you have just portions of a song stuck in your head, your brain scrambles to complete the thought; when it isn’t able to do so, it just keeps repeating. Listening to the song and figuring out the lyrics might be a way to get it to stop. Sudden Foreign Accent Syndrome Sudden Foreign Accent Syndrome, or more recently just Foreign Accent Syndrome is usually the result of a brain injury or stroke. However, there are cases that have been linked to multiple sclerosis and some that have no discernible cause at all. This syndrome causes the person to start speaking in an accent that is foreign to them. Timing, intonation, tongue placement, and even slang terms can all change as a result of this syndrome. There have only been 100 cases of this in the past century. Hysterical Strength Hysterical strength is what it is called when humans display strength beyond that which is naturally possible. This happens to people when they are put in extreme and dangerous situations, often life or death. Examples of this can be a human being lifting a car off of someone who has been injured or being able to break through a locked door in case of a fire. Scientists attribute this to the surge of adrenaline your brain produces in these situations. Such displays of strength can also happen in states of excited delirium when stress and psychological dysfunction cause humans to feel less pain. Eidetic Memory An eidetic memory was most commonly known as a photographic memory until our favorite member of the BAU, Dr. Spencer Reid in Criminal Minds, started talking about his own incredible mind. It is typically found in children, but there are cases of adults who have incredible memories as well. People with this gift have the ability to recall images perfectly, books, series of numbers, and more. What is most interesting about this ability is that this type of memory and recall ability is not at all linked to intelligence. Sleep Paralysis Sleep paralysis is extremely scary to most who experience it, but not many people will in their lifetime. It is caused by the awkward state between sleeping and being awake where your body is asleep, but your mind is awake. It makes it so your body can’t [...] The post 10 Incredible Things Your Mind Can Do appeared first on PopCrunch......»»

More Than A Dozen Women Come Forward With Sexual Assault Allegations Against Porn Veteran Ron Jeremy — "He Doesn"t Hear No"

Ron Jeremy is the latest celebrity to be called out for alleged sexual assault. In a new Rolling Stone report, more than a dozen women came forward with accusations of impropriety spanning over 30 years.

In a new Rolling Stone report, more than a dozen women came forward with accusations of impropriety spanning over 30 years. Related: Al Franken Accuser Leeann Tweeden Doesn't Want The Senator To Step Down Actress Jennifer Steele claimed the 64-year-old raped her twice, once at a photo shoot and another time at his apartment, in December of 1997. She told the mag of him allegedly cornering her in a bathroom: "He was like, 'I need to look at your ass so I can get hard for the photo shoot.' Then it turned into him basically sticking it in without me knowing it was happening. I said flat-out no. It stopped, but it didn't stop soon enough after I said no ... During the whole photo shoot I was thinking, 'Was I just raped? What the fuck just happened?' [But] by the time the shoot was done, I had it in my head that I had somehow exaggerated it and it was an honest mistake ... He just kinda keeps going and pretends like you didn't say anything." When asked why she didn't report the crime, Steele replied: "I was pretty promiscuous. I was a stripper. I couldn't prove it." Adding: "He hides behind other women's scarlet letters, is what he does. [He] know[s] if someone's a porn star and they say they've been raped, people aren't gonna take it seriously." Another adult performer, Kendra Sunderland, said Jeremy sucked her breasts without permission at a Dallas expo in 2015: "People expect this from him. If I went and got mad on Twitter, people would say, 'That's Ron.' But if I said a fan did it, they'd say 'That's not OK, that's crossing a line.'" As you can probably imagine, it's very difficult for sex workers to come forward with their stories considering the stigma and gray areas that are involved when it comes to being in the adult entertainment industry. Not to mention, sex workers who come forward are "likely to be blamed or disbelieved by law enforcement." With that said, Rolling Stone spoke with several people in the industry who said Jeremy's behavior is not standard. Popular performer Julia Ann said: "I think Ron is an anomaly, and you'd be hard-pressed to say there's any other person who's been able to publicly sexually harass or assault people and get away with it. It's one thing for someone to do it in their hotel room or their condo or their office or their car, but he can do it in the middle of a convention ... When there are dollar signs involved, the lines [of consent] actually get drawn much more distinctly." In 2003, Jeremy was investigated for criminal sexual conduct after a fan alleged he held her down and raped her in his Michigan hotel room. Charges were not pressed. Also in 2003, performer Ginger Lynn said Jeremy raped her while they were on location shooting a film in 1983. In 2007, another fan told police the porn star reached inside her bra, pulled out her breast, and signed it without her permission at an expo in Miami. Jeremy told TMZ at the time: "I probably signed about 150 boobs that weekend, all of which I sign 'RJ' with a heart.'" There are just a handful of the many explosive accusations against Ron for years of abuse. Related: Sylvester Stallone Allegations Bring Half-Sister's Rape Claims Back Into The Spotlight In a statement to the magazine in response to the many allegations, Jeremy said in full: "Let me first say, that I'm fully in support of the women and men who have been coming forward about being sexually assaulted. These real predators need to be taken down. My reputation is currently being smeared by these old allegations that have already been investigated and dismissed. However, I understand how social change works, and if my reputation has to get a bit tarnished along the way for the better treatment of women, and men, so be it. I will be there to support all people, men and women, that have bravely come forward to attack this systemic problem. As for the allegations against me, these allegations have been online and in print for quite sometime. This is not new or breaking news. I'm shocked you guys are picking this up after it's been reported on over and over by other publications and has been proven over and over to be false. I have never and would never rape anyone. All serious allegations have been investigated by police and dismissed by judges, as have most of the accusations of "Groping". I have never been charged nor spent one day in court for any of this. And these are old allegations. Check, Anything about me appearing in court or in jail, is public record. I was only arrested 20 years ago when I was fighting for Freedom Of Speech with Hal Freeman. The police who looked into the groping charges have always said that they watch the video from the event or whatever and that I did nothing wrong or illegal. They then ask if I want to press charges against The people making false accusations. I never have. As for the charges of Groping, I say yes, I AM A GROPER. And by groper, I mean I get paid to show up to these shows, events, and photo shoots and touch the people and they touch me. I'm not the young stud I was, but I still draw a crowd. And we are talking about things that are within reason, in front of police officer's and security that are always there as well as the tons of cameras And the general public. But seriously, if you were going to be around Ron Jeremy, wouldn't you assume that I'd be a little bit touchy Feely? Yes. This is what I do for a living. I am not Kevin Spacey, Louis CK, Weinstein, or Cosby. For over 40 years fans and fellow performers pay money and wait in long lines to meet me. They want autographs, pictures, to flirt with me, physically grab me in different areas (usually my clothed penis), they ask me to touch them and many ask to have me sign their boobs. When I take photos with fans and other performers at these conventions, signings or events, I do sometimes kiss people on the lips or the cheek, sign boobs or whatever they want. There is "put on" flirting and touching for the photos. This is exactly what people pay me for at conventions. The female performers flirt and touch too. It's what we do. If you watch these videos that Ginger Banks put out of me "groping," you see that everyone in the videos is laughing and "groping" too. That I'm not running up to them, they come to me. If anyone was ever made to feel uncomfortable by ANY of our interactions, I'm deeply sorry. That was never my intention and it breaks my heart in half. I hope that everyone reading this keeps in mind that I do tons of these conventions and adult signings. I take pictures with about 500,000 people each all over the world and have every year, for 40 years. These touching complaints are the exact same thing everyone else stood in line for. They couldn't be happier. I have never raped anyone. If anyone continues those claims, that is defamation. I will sue them in court. I'm not saying that I never met these people or interacted with them. I don't remember most of them, how could I? I may have seen hundreds people on those days. A girl said that I took her into a back room at a convention? Now this I remember. No one pushed anyone anywhere, she and a girl friend of hers asked if they could come in to the back tent with me. "Back room" was actually a small tent where the performers went to relax and eat crafty. There were seven other people in the small tent including security guard. And we took some sexy photos with each other as people looked on or looked at their phones. If I did anything wrong, that security guard who works for the convention, would have taken me down and called the police. And someone claimed that in hedonism in Jamaica, which is a nudist swingers resort, I tried to massage their leg years ago? Why is this even in an article? I am very happy that the scum bags of the earth are being taken down. They deserve it. But these allegations are pure lies or buyers remorse. In 40 years, I've never been punched by a boyfriend or anyone ever. I have been heartbroken over these allegations. Not because it affects me or my business, I can take that, but because they are lies and there are actual women and men out there Who have been victims of serious sexual assault, and so on, that are trying to get their voices heard. Again, It does bother me that there might be women out there that had some buyers remorse after our interactions. But I did nothing wrong or out of the ordinary for these conventions or events. These events are supposed to be a fun time. That video that Ginger Banks made looks like a pro Ron Jeremy video if you turn off the sound. Everyone in the videos is having fun with me. This really is a non-story. However I'm glad I had a chance to speak my side." Thoughts??? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)! [Image via WENN.].....»»
