Former Pornstar Lisa Ann Is Not Happy People Assume She's Sleeping With Every Athlete She's Seen With
LBS- TMZ caught up Ann this week, and the retired porn star turned sports radio personality unloaded on those who have asked her if she is sleeping with Rice because of the photo. The shot was taken at a charity basketball event in the Bronx, where Ann was a coach and her team won. Rice was on the losing team.
“We met, we took a photo, that was it,” Ann said. “I will tell you, I’ve been attacked by racists over the past 48 hours. I’m taking a no-social media day because I had to block over 1,000 people yesterday. I cannot believe the intensity of hate and racism directed at me because I did a charity event and took pictures with people.”
Ann said she is tired of not being shown respect because of her former career.
“Just because I do something, I’m not always having sex,” she said. “Just because I did porn — just like Ray Rice deserves a second chance in this world because he’s paid his price. He lost his opportunity. He’s no longer in the NFL. I deserve a second chance in life, too. I did my job. I retired and moved on. I’m working really hard at something else and I’m constantly harassed, disrespected and disregarded as a decent human being.”
Despicable. Just despicable. Don't people understand that - despite what your mother told you - words can actually hurt? How quickly we forget that when you assume you make an ass out of everyone involved. Can't believe the fine folks on the internet didn't step back and calmly ask for more context when they saw a former porn star palling around with professional athletes. God forbid the woman who is hardly ever seen in the company of someone that hasn't penetrated her feels like people are harshly jumping to conclusions when she's photographed around those of the most promiscuous profession other than pornography. Come on guys. Just because having sex was her "9-5" for upwards of two decades doesn't mean she's some kind of slut or something.
Obviously I don't endorse whatever wave of racist bullshit she's been dealing with online, but can Lisa Ann really blame anyone for speculating that she's fucking Ray Rice just because she was pictured with him? We're talking about someone that has been known to sleep with athletes before. I know she's technically retired, but that doesn't mean she's abstinent. Just because Marshawn Lynch hung up his cleats doesn't mean he forgot how to catch a football, and just because Lisa Ann finally put some clothes on doesn't mean she's not quick to take them off. I feel the same way about her getting a second chance to rebrand herself as I feel about Ray Rice getting a second chance to play in the NFL. Do they deserve it? Probably. Are they going to get it? Fuck no. Sucking dick on camera in exchange for a paycheck is much like being criminal defense attorney. It's a profitable, necessary profession, but it's thankless and carries a lifelong stigma. You provide a service to the public for years and that service is going to be presumed as part of who you are. That doesn't mean that Lisa Ann is boning every person she shares a moment with, but it does mean we are allowed to act like she is for the sake of comedy.
