Welcome to another exciting edition of MTV is the goddamn devil. This time around, Real World/Road Rules castmember Tonya Cooley is suing MTV after producers allegedly stood by – and filmed – while castmates Kenny Santucci (above) and Evan Starkman raped her with a toothbrush. Although, in their defense, they did clean her vagina with it first which apparently is the polite thing to do in Shitbag Rapist Land. It’s practically the highest honor. TMZ reports:
Tonya Cooley filed the suit against MTV, Bunim/Murray Productions, Kenneth Santucci, Evan Starkman and others … claiming the two guys “took another male participant’s toothbrush and rubbed the toothbrush around plaintiff’s genitals, including rubbing her labia and inserting the toothbrush into plaintiff’s vagina.”
Cooley says it all happened while she was passed out cold … and cameras were rolling
Cooley says producers not only knew about the rape, they even replaced the toothbrush, but never told her what happened.
And if you’ve always suspected the entire set of Real World/Road Rules is a rape bonanza, surprise! The entire set of Real World/Road Rules is a rape bonanza. I’m sorry, “alleged” rape bonanza. And school of sexual assault dentistry:
The suit also claims female cast members were stripped of their bathing suits and that male cast members were encouraged by producers to “inappropriately touch female cast members’ bodies, including in intimate areas.”
Cooley alleges she and other cast members reported incidents of sexual abuse, but show honchos turned a blind eye.
Is anyone really surprised that the network that’s currently raping America with Jersey Shore and Teen Mom incorporates rape in all their programs? Because at this point they might as well just make a reality show called “Rape” and make rape look cool with pop music montages about rape. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to field calls from MTV asking how I guessed their exact mid-season line-up right down to the rape. (Spoiler Alert: I tell them I “just took a rape in the dark.” Because they like rape.)
