First, let me just say that I know what Akon did to the girl was uncalled for and ridiculous...However, calling the display a "simulated rape" is reaching...it was more like "simulated sex" and what some may call "consensual" seeing that the 14 year old girl voluntarily laid her ass on the ground for Akon to hump her!
The girl thought she had won a dance contest, but instead got a Source: Fox News
simulated rape, which was caught on video.
"This week the partnership ended," Verizon said in a statement sent to FOX News. "We have music services on our cellphone service and we were promoting him as one of the artists. The other part of the sponsorship was the Gwen Stefani tour, of which he was an opening act. We are no longer sponsoring the tour."
Patrick Manning, the prime minister of Trinidad, called for a formal investigation of the explicit April 12 performance at Trinidad's Club Zen, which has since been closed by authorities, according to WorldNet Daily.
Not all reports are calling it rape, but I think it is unfair to Akon to be deemed a "rapist," simulated or not, in the media and not address the girl or her parents for their part in the incident... If she was grown woman, which she should have been being in the club, then this wouldn't be a issue! The club should also be responsible for letting a 14 year old in...
And yes I still think Akon is oogey! Plus he just cost Gwen Stefani sponsorship of her tour...Boo on him!
