Former Porn Star Threatens to Sue Me

Punk My latest book PUNK is about my time (1980-83) covering the East LA / Downtown underground music scene for a bi-weekly gay magazine, Data-Boy. This clip contains lude language because I discuss my actual job there, servicing our bar and porn clients. Well, servicing is entirely the wrong word, I was creating ads for them... it's one of those you-had-to-be-there-but-glad-you-weren't things.

This excerpt from the book PUNK below is what has self-fellator and one time Ford model Gene Carrier up in arms, he threatened me with a lawsuit over it.

 

 It seems Gene's name is a trademark now so is Johnny Harden(TM) so the former has-been feels as if it can't be uttered without him getting cashed out. Oddly, the guy made news in 2011 when he claimed to be the biological father of Ashton Kutcher, Josh Harnett, Robbie Williams, and porn star Brent Corrigan. He told Corrigan (who's mother denied the story), "I did do a DNA test with Ashton and it checked out."

He also announced a planned return to gay porn movies in 2013 which sent shivers of excitement into exactly nobody. This is not the first time Harden has threatened litigation, the internet is littered with similar appeals to just about every web site that has ever uttered his name(s). You can read the same lawsuit threat I got on many other sites.

I suspect whatever reputation Mr. Harden wishes to preserve was long ago washed away in a sea of poor quality 8mm reels and VHS tapes, most of which can be found in assisted living home garbage cans and all over the internet... including footage of Harden pleasuring himself in a most contortive manner. His reputation, like his stiffy, precedes him, and besides... I only had nice things to say about him in the book. Wish someone would describe ME in those terms!
