I’ve wondered about those Girls Gone Wild videos. A commercial porno producer is dealing with just a few paid professionals who are presumably signing model release forms and such. The Girls Gone Wild, on the other hand, just seems to be any silly slut they can convince to flash them on the beach. Exactly what are the standards being followed so that the producers of these videos don’t, oh, get sued for whatever some hooker thinks they can get their hands on?
That brings us to THIS STORY:
Rapper/actor Snoop Dogg is being sued by two Louisiana women who say they were offered drugs during Mardi Gras 2002 to flash their breasts for pictures that later appeared on a cover of the video series “Girls Gone Wild.”
The suit by Jaime Capdeboscq, who was 17 at the time of the alleged incident, and Whitni Candiotto, who was 18, also names Joseph R. Francis, the owner of Mantra Films Inc., which has produced the series of mail-order videos that feature nudity and sexual activity.
On April 2, Francis was arrested during spring break at Panama City, Fla., where videos were being filmed. He faces 22 charges including racketeering, procuring minors for sexual acts, filming minors engaged in sexual performances and conspiracy. Mantra Films has disputed the charges, contending crews always ask young women their age and film only those who say they are 18 or older.
Yowsa. This is a multi-million dollar operation, and their defense is that the girls all SAID they were over 18? The dumbest ass pimp on the corner would know to have a better story than THAT.
It’s all good, though, cause they always post a sign near wherever they’re filming that says, “By entering, you consent to the use of such film and your image in a commercial film product.”
Which speaks of a demerit for Snoop Dogg for being part of such unprofessional pimping. Snoop is SUPPOSED to be the goddam Superpimp, a Nietzchean uber-pimp.
Superpimp would KNOW that they have to have their papers in full legal order, and that they are absolutely NOT going to get any benefit of the doubt if any of this hits a courtroom.
“We had a sign.” Oh, ok then. No problem.
What kind of half-assed excuse for pimping is this?
