Yesterday, August 3rd, 2018, Jenny Blighe expressed her experience with Evil Angel's Cam Girls: The Movie. Jenny has since then faced both positive and negative responses to her expression of truth.
AVN Media Network responded with an article stating that "Jenny Blighe Alleges Mistreatment on Set of ‘Cam Girls’ Movie", and the link is here http://ow.ly/oqvc30lgjO5. Ginger Banks stated that she had no comment, but also took to twitter as Jenny did to express her stance on the matter. Only Evil Angel responded to Jenny's experience for AVN Network's article, here is what Evil Angel said:
“Anybody who has been around the business knows how Evil Angel conducts itself both on and off set. With Cam Girls: The Movie, like everything we have done for the last 29+ years, we did our best to make sure all participants felt good about the work they did."
“It's unfortunate that Jenny isn't proud of the work she did on this movie and feels that the experience was negative. However, after having closely reviewed everything that took place, it is clear to us that everyone involved with the project conducted themselves properly and were held to our high standards.”
Jenny did not give AVN Media Network her comment because she did not read the e-mail in time, and it is important to note that nowhere have I read that Jenny is not proud of her work. The only statement I found on her twitter stated that “On set, we were both uncomfortable at best, and assaulted at worst.” This makes Evil Angel's statement of, "it's unfortunate that Jenny isn't proud of the work she did on this movie." Null and void. Being unproud of your work and feeling violated by pressure are very different concepts that Evil Angel should understand if they are to conduct themselves properly and hold themselves to their high standards.
Jenny has been a proud cam model, entrepreneur and self-producing all-around performer for over a year. She is so successful that she has been crowned XBIZ Cam Model of the Year, ManyVids Innovator of the Year and Pornhub's Pro Model of the Year. With such an outstanding record, this is her first time ever experiencing the kind of heartache that had willed her to write this expressive post on her twitter:
Jenny stated repeatedly that if viewers were to watch the video, there is very apparent discomfort expressed on her face. She felt pressured, disrespected, betrayed, and ultimately assaulted. This is how she feels and has also stated that she clearly has nothing to gain by speaking her truth, but she wants to be heard. Her very good friend Ginger Banks did not respond to the experience the same way, but admitted that Jenny did not consent to getting urine in her mouth nor did either of them consent to being touched by the owner of Evil Angel during their Girl on Girl scene, and still he persisted to touch them during the shoot.
This is Ginger Banks' twitter response to her experience with Evil Angel and Jenny Bleighe's comments:
To end it all, Ginger Banks wrote that "all of the terribly mean things being said to, and about me, have been 1,000X more upsetting for me than everything I mentioned above."
Jenny Blighe has also experienced verbally abusive comments since coming forward with her experience, that is just how social media is. One can post a cat video and someone would still undoubtedly make a negative comment somehow. The bottom line is that even if Ginger wasn't affected the same way as Jenny by the experience, someone was affected and that someone should not be discredited for her valid and now verified experience. Jenny also posted photos on her twitter of bite marks that had bruised her after her scene with Manuel Ferrera:
The voices that matter here are the performers. It is the producer's job to ensure that their performers are all on the same page, that they are handled with care and unharmed. Although Ginger Banks is doing her best to stay neutral, I took to twitter to validate Jenny's feelings and have been blocked by Ginger Banks' twitter profile.
What I am pointing out here is that Ginger Banks did state, "Was my consent violated? Yes," and whether intentional or not, that matters! If we as an adult community brush off these incidences as, "she should have known better," "she should have said no, louder, clearer," then we will never improve as an industry and girls who are less reknown than Jenny Blighe will have no voice.
We can not stand for this, if you love porn, you will not stand for this because, yes we love porn, but we want to know that our performers who are supplying our fantasies are safe and treated well.
