that got your attention, huh?
well this is not that kind of entry.
one of the f-bi,
left a comment about a blog he wanted me to read.
it was written by michael g,
the owner of black boy addictionz,
who knew the dl chill spot ceo personally.
it actually explains a lot and i wanted to share it with everyone…
I just returned from traveling out of the country to hear the shocking and tragic news that the DL Chill Spot CEO was murdered this past weekend. According to multiple news sources, he was shot several times in broad daylight while shoveling snow in front of his apartment on Saturday afternoon. No arrests have been made and no suspects have been named so far.
An investigation is still underway, but I think it’s fair to conclude that the CEO’s killer was almost certainly a former model, an acquaintance or family member of a former model, or an enemy of his work overall. Ever since his website achieved national attention and local notoriety after being profiled on a well-known black gossip site several months ago, the DL Chill Spot CEO and most of his models have been exposed, harassed, and threatened on an almost daily basis. I know that in recent weeks, the CEO was taking extra precautions to stay safe, but sadly there’s not much you can do to protect yourself if someone is crazy, enraged, and/or determined enough to gun you down in broad daylight.
Needless to say, this is tragic and devastating news for anyone who knew the DL Chill Spot CEO or enjoyed his work.
Even though I never actually met the DL Chill Spot CEO in person, we have communicated on an almost daily basis for nearly two years, and I considered him a friend as well as a business associate. Most of our conversations focused on work, swapping stories about our models and video-shoots as well as discussing goals and ideas for how to make our sites better. But we occasionally talked about our personal, non-porn lives as well, and words cannot express my deep sadness over the sudden and senseless loss of a good friend and confidante who will be greatly missed.
It’s easy to stereotype porn producers as greedy, unscrupulous people who don’t give a damn about their performers. And while I’m sure there are some producers like that, I’ve still yet to meet one and I’ve been working in this business for over six years.
The DL Chill Spot CEO that I knew was a compassionate and generous person who frequently helped out his models even when sex and porn weren’t involved. He took them shopping and out to eat, and sometimes even let them stay at his apartment when their homophobic families kicked them out simply for being gay or bisexual. He was like the father many of these guys never had. If anything, he got TOO close and cared TOO much about the guys that he filmed.
The CEO had a great sense of humor and made me laugh out loud almost every time that we talked. Like me, he was close to his family and spent countless hours over the past couple weeks visiting and caring for a sick relative in the hospital.
We didn’t always see eye to eye and we frequently disagreed over creative choices and our approaches to porn. But we always encouraged and supported each others’ work, even after our business partnership officially ended.
Nobody was more passionate about hot boys and gay porn than the DL Chill Spot CEO. He truly loved what he did, and I admired his drive and determination to be successful and make a name for himself in this industry. He was constantly striving to become a better director and make his new website the best that it could possibly be, asking me almost daily for advice and feedback to his goals and ideas.
The CEO was able to find some of the hottest boys I’ve ever seen in gay porn. His videos might not have been perfect, but they were edgy, fresh, and unlike anything black gay porn had ever seen before or will likely ever see again.
Like a wildlife photographer or intrepid reporter, he took risks that few other porn producers (myself included) are willing to take in order to film the types of guys that one rarely ever sees in gay porn and create the unique types of scenes he most wanted to make (and we most wanted to see). Tragically, pursuing this dream ended up costing him his life.
I have been disgusted and appalled by the callousness and ignorance of some bloggers and others on social media sites who are already trashing the CEO’s reputation and basically saying that he got what he deserved. And these are GAY people saying such hateful things! I’m sure they will say the same types of things if something similar ever happens to me.
If a gay person gets beaten up or even killed as part of a hate crime by people who see that person leaving a gay club late at night, we wouldn’t blame the VICTIM for his own death, or the owner of the gay bar. The blame lies solely with the homophobic assholes who chose to gay-bash an innocent person. Why should this be any different just because DL thugs and gay porn are involved?
Let me set the record straight: The CEO was running a legal and legitimate adult entertainment business. The guys in his movies were CONSENTING ADULTS who were fully aware they were being filmed and signed legal contracts before any filming took place. Regardless of their sexual orientation, nobody was forced to have gay sex on camera, and many of them were simply agreeing to be filmed doing what they were already willingly doing with the CEO off-camera.
The ONLY people who should be blamed for this senseless tragedy are:
1) The selfish coward who pulled the trigger, taking an innocent man’s life;
2) the gossip-hungry gay men and homophobic females who have devoted their pathetic lives to exposing, harassing, and humiliating the CEO’s models;
3) the criminally reckless and irresponsible editor behind the black gossip site that first exposed the CEO’s work to a national audience of predominantly heterosexual and homophobic people for which it was never intended, resulting in the mass exposure and subsequent harassment of most of his models;
4) and last but definitely not least, the pervasive ignorance and homophobia within the urban black community that even in the year 2014 makes parents disown their own children, casually condones and even celebrates violence against GLBT people, and breeds so much fear, insecurity, and self-hatred in so many young black men that they feel driven to the extreme of either killing themselves or others when they are exposed.
These are the people who should be blamed for this horrible tragedy, not the innocent man whose life was violently taken from him without warning while shoveling snow on a sunny afternoon.
It will take some time to fully recover from the shock and sadness caused by the CEO’s death. It’s still hard to believe that instead of catching up with him about my vacation, joking around about who has the best ass between Chippy and Cory, or discussing our goals and plans for the new year, I am composing this sad blog entry about his tragic death.
I hope they find the person who did this and bring him swiftly to justice. And I wish the CEO’s friends and family great comfort and peace as they grieve his loss.
that was a interesting read.
it sucks this person’s life was taken so viciously.
ironic that a community that knows hate also displays it as well.
and gay folks.
its like most of our people are fuckin miserable,
or blithering idiots.
lowkey: what black gossip site was involved in all this drama?
my spirit says mto.
