“The producers of “Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On” finally broke their silence over allegations that their Netflix documentary features sex workers without their consent — but it wasn’t to apologize or express their sympathies. Instead, in an interview with Variety, they denied the accusations, mocked their accusers, questioned whether some of their critics were in it for fame, and alleged that sex workers have been pressured into fighting the documentary.
