Porn actress, writer, and director Stoya accused James Deen of rape in a series of tweets Saturday afternoon. The two dated in 2013 and split the following year. It’s not clear exactly when they broke up nor when the alleged rape occurred.
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
Another one of his ex-girlfriends tweeted her support to Stoya.
Stoya is the co-owner of TrenchcoatX, a site for “curated smut”; the latest update to the site is a porno featuring Deen. He’s appeared in one other pornos on the site.
The Frisky has suspended its “What Would James Deen Do?” advice column, according to the site’s editor-in-chief.
