Hold Lady Gaga Responsible For Promoting Rape! Don't Reward Her Hypocrisy!
This petition had 75 supporters
Lady Gaga has been making the rounds telling everybody she is a victim of rape in order to promote her song “Till It Happens To You” and make herself the martyr for all rape victims. She even performed the song at the Oscars and used rape victims as props. I am not here to decide if she was actually raped or not. But I am here to call her a hypocrite.
I worked on the set of the video for “Do What You Want With My Body,” a collaboration with herself, R. Kelly and Terry Richardson. These two people are alleged sexual predators and all it takes is a simple Google search to see how they allegedly ruined the lives of many young girls.
At the beginning of the video, R. Kelly tells Lady Gaga that when she wakes up, she is going to be “pregnant.” That part didn’t make it into this clip. When the video came to light (which she leaked), it was thought that the full version was never released because of R. Kelly and Terry Richardson. However, in an “exclusive” with US, Gaga’s team claimed that the video not being released had nothing to do with the accusations against R. Kelly and Terry Richardson. The PR person told US that everybody at the label actually liked it.

The video has been described as an advertisement for rape by many websites and it was more than that. Rape actually occurred on the set and I was a victim. I was drugged up on the set (as were some of the female extras) when I thought I was drinking spiked up hot cocoa, which shouldn’t have been allowed in the first place. Lady Gaga has joked about "roofies" in her tweets before, so this shouldn't have been surprising.
I found myself in a dark room with a very-well known person and was sexually assaulted. I don’t remember much. I do remember being told that we were going to discuss the chaos that was taking place on the set, which there was a lot of. I was only slightly aware when it was happening and thought it was a bad dream. I felt an excruciating penetration and could barely open my mouth to scream for help. I don’t know how long this lasted, but I know I was told that if I say anything, I will never work in Hollywood again. I haven’t.
The last year has been a living a living Hell for me. In fact, I probably would have been better off in Hell than experience what I have. I have received death threats in real life from people who are still friends with Lady Gaga and the person who raped me. I have also died a thousand times in my dreams. I can barely walk outside without crying. I have tried to reach out to Lady Gaga and her management about what happened and that all I want is some closure. I have received nothing but death threats, horrific emails, and stalking.
I feel truly sorry for Lady Gaga if she was raped. But when I see her talk about being raped as a promotional blitz to try and make up for all the work she did with known perverts and win an Oscar, I feel like dying again. Even if she is a friend of the LGBT community, there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY she should be getting away with her hypocrisy. There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY that the fawning press should be quiet and let more people be victimized. I also know there were other victims on the set, but they are afraid to do anything about it.
