LOS ANGELES — The Free Speech Coalition was disturbed to read a recent account by an adult performer who alleged racist and sexist speech on an adult set in June.
The incidents described have no place in the adult industry, or any industry. No worker should be subjected to racist slurs, degradation or verbal abuse on set. It’s appalling in 2017 that we would have to issue a call for respect and equal treatment in regards to a performer’s race.
FSC has spoken with the performer about the alleged incidents, and is currently working to gather more information. We are also in conversation with APAC, the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, to determine the most effective way to address not only this situation, but incidents of bias and harassment in general.
The adult industry is the home to one of the most diverse workforces on the planet. Our strength comes from the diversity of race, sexuality, gender identity, and body types celebrated. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia can not and will not be tolerated.
