I just saw this piece suddenly appear on the Globe and Mail site.
In response to Lucca Rocco Magnotta’s video in which he kills several kittens with a vacuum cleaner and a python, a group animal rights activists asked Ron Jeremy to help lure Magnotta so he could be arrested for animal cruelty.
It gets more bizarre: Rescue Ink, an activist group out of Queens, used the infamous Playboy Barbie twins ( Sia and Shane Barbi) to ask Jeremy if he would participate.
“It’s like an episode from some TV show. The [guy] comes to the set with lube in one hand and his schmeckle in the other thinking he has a job, and the cops tackle him to the ground.That’s good for the movies. That doesn’t work in real life,” Jeremy said.
He was to contact Magnotta, invite him to a fictitious adult movie set, and then a group of animal activists would leap from the shadows and nail him. An arrest would follow.
But Jeremy, one of the most recognizable adult stars on the planet, got cold feet. He didn’t want to risk getting hurt. This happened a year before Magnotta was charged with the death of Lin Jun, but Jeremy was still leery of getting mixed up with a kitten killer.
What if he had been caught? History would have been different. Magnotta would be in a US jail, where kitten killers probably don’t do too well.
Here are some pics to put things in perspective:
