Dear “Mr. President”:
Normally, I wouldn’t bother wasting my time dignifying Rob Black by responding to his ramblings, but today I find myself thinking, “someone really needs to tell him to STOP TALKING!!!”
He not only embarrasses himself, but embarrasses the adult industry as a whole. Now most of the industry who know Rob and his “colorful” history in the business just shake their heads , chuckle and move on with their day. For the rest of you who have just recently come across Rob and his ridiculous rants… You should probably do the same. There’s nothing to see here but the train wreck that is ROB BLACK.
Before I continue PLEASE know that this letter should in NO WAY be taken as any form of validation for Rob Black, his opinions, or his behavior on this or any other topic.
It’s well known that Rob throws all kinds of shit at the wall to see what sticks, hoping someone will bite, and hopefully give him some form of credibility… Or at least drive some traffic his way. So I apologize now for biting… And he’s “welcome” for any additional hits this response might bring.
– The other day Mr. Black went off about how jessica drake, Asa Akira, Samantha Saint, myself & a number of other caring adult performers and industry workers were in some way wrong, thoughtless, or short sighted for supporting Aids Walk LA and not supporting the talent that have recently contracted HIV.
This is absolutely AMAZING to me!!! Team Wicked has participated in Aids Walk LA for the last 3 yrs. Our involvement in this years’ Aids walk was planned long before the recent cases of HIV were diagnosed, so it has no bearing on our involvement in the event and we will of course continue our pledge to help. Our donations are more important than ever, because now the disease affects us even closer to home.
Furthermore, these donations go towards helping a number of agencies whose sole purpose is to help those with HIV in the Los Angeles area. That being said, some of these donations could, in fact, go towards helping the very people Rob has accused us of turning our backs on. Hopefully the newly infected people will be able to seek these agencies out and receive treatment/assistance. If not, we’d be happy to try and facilitate a path through the great people we’ve met at Aids Walk LA and make that happen.
But if that’s still not enough to shut Mr. Black up, I’d be happy to donate to a fund for Cameron Bay, Rod Daily and the 3rd yet to be named patient.
Rob said he’s a believer in “charity begins at home”… Well, here’s his chance to put his money where his mouth is. As of today, (Sept. 11th) I’ll match dollar for dollar whatever he personally wants to donate to the fund… But in return, I beg him to please just shut up.
In closing, Rob Black has somehow voted himself “President & Protector” of the industry… I’m quite sure if there were such a position he wouldn’t get nominated… never mind elected.
The truth of the matter is that Rob Black continues to preach the use of condoms… and I’m all for it… but in this case, it’s basically like an arsonist going door-to-door selling fire extinguishers… it just doesn’t work. It’s not his place. I could be wrong, but I highly doubt Rob Black has ever used a condom in ANY of his movies… except for perhaps filling them with fake blood, or urine, or whatever else his warped imagination brought forth that day on set, and then proceeded to throw them at his poor female talent.
You see, for those who’ve never had the “joy” of witnessing a movie directed by Rob Black, just know that most of you would consider them vile & disturbing… and that’s putting it mildly. He was also the kind of director who probably would have continued shooting through the moratorium without a 2nd thought for his talent’s safety.
For him to come back into an industry (that has long since forgotten about him) and try to portray himself as some “long lost savior” that’s going to guide us to the promised land and save us… is simply ridiculous.
And those are MY thoughts over my 2nd cup of coffee…
To Rob… lemme know how much you decide to donate. We’ll take the checks down to the bank together and get the talent the help they need.
ps… I blame all the reviewers out there who put Rob Black on a pedestal back in the day. You showered him with awards and accolades for his poor behavior, and now it’s come back to haunt us. You made this monster… shame on you. And shame on you too, Rob Black.
For anyone who DOES want to support Aids Walk and Aids Project Los Angeles, you may donate here:
