James Deen is speaking out after multiple women have accused him of rape in the last few days.
“There have been some egregious claims made against me on social media,” the 29-year-old porn star tweeted. “I want to assure my friends, fans and colleagues that these allegations are both false and defamatory. I respect women and I know and respect limits both professionally and privately.”
TMZ is reporting that James has told friends he thinks his “aggressive” on-camera image led him to be accused of rape. Two porn stars have accused him of sexual assault, one of whom is an ex-girlfriend who claims it happened off camera. None of the accusers have gone to the police yet.
