Misrepresented in the Media

I tried to ignore this and not let it effect me but its on international news companies and its gotten out of control. I don’t want to check my social media or email anymore. I don’t want to go home and work the same job anymore because its causing people to discredit me. (and I LOVE my job.) I’m considering strictly doing private cam shows until I can find something I enjoy that doesn’t paint me as a want-to-be celebrity or some shit. I am NOT here to gain attention.

I haven’t yet decided whether I will keep my social media accounts active.

I won’t be making any permanent decisions for a few days. I’m hoping people will leave me alone if I can get the articles taken down.

Its been a really fun couple of years, guys. Thank you for being there with me and for me. I really don’t want to have to change jobs yet but I chose to be a cam girl to stay out of the public eye for my safety and the safety of my child. These articles took that away from me.

I was told I should post my own press release. This is the email I’m going to send companies to try to get the articles taken down. If you see anything written about me please send me a link to sashapainxxx@gmail.com so that I can try to get it removed.


—————————————————-

When I originally agreed to talk to journalists in Ferguson (outside of Umar) I was led to believe the article was going to be about activists coming from out of town to spread awareness and bring more people. I was the only person in the entire article and they focused it on my job. I was very clear that I didn’t want anything to be about me/my job. They learned about what I do for a living from my talking to Umar/ my twitter.

The term “Sex Videos” implies I’m selling videos that contain heterosexual sex. I do not. Using the term “Private Sex Videos” implies I’m sleeping with people out here for money and filming it. That’s not at all what I do and as a result I am being solicited for prostitution and continually harassed sexually and otherwise in comments on articles, on social media, and in my email. The article is causing people to believe I’m here to promote myself and profit from the tragedy that happened here. I’m spending thousands getting myself and 5 friends here, feeding them, getting a place to sleep, and getting us all home. I’m also trying to help feed other protestors and donate to the cause in various other ways. I wanted to come out here and be able to put a lot more money into helping people but because of the articles going around about me I can’t ask my followers to help fund this. I haven’t been able to do nearly as much as I want to and I’m already running out of funds. Its disheartening to come here feeling like I was going to be able to accomplish so much and having the media ruin that for me because they want to sell a story. I don’t know how much news sites pay for an article but I guarantee its a lot less than I could have raised and put back into the community.

I’d really appreciate it if you could get the article taken down. If you care more about your story than the problems it’s causing please edit it letting people know I am NOT having sex with men for money on or off film. “Custom videos” is an acceptable term.

I’m talking to a lawyer as soon as I get home about what I can do about being interviewed under false pretenses, so blatantly misrepresented, and having the articles taken down.

My being here has nothing to do with my job. I wouldn’t be where I am in life today if it wasn’t for people giving me a helping hand and I’m here to pay it forward. The media should be focusing on why people are protesting instead of who is here protesting. I’m a regular person, I just want to be treated like one.
