In answer to everyone's questions on the article bellow, that appeared on the Liberty Network and in King Global Media / WP&A Adult News. Yes, we were very serious.
This morning at breakfast on the NBC lot in Burbank, a mainstream news reporter, whom I have personally known for many years and consider him a close and personal friend, asked me about Sean Michaels. He was apparently under the miss-guidance, that I were Sean Michaels' publicist. I told him no, it was either Jason Sechrest or Harry Weiss (just kidding).
He was interested in how Sean Michaels was dealing with the apparent hijacking of his established name, Sean Michaels. I informed him, that I was not Sean Michaels' publicist at this very moment, however, in Los Angeles at the wrap of Sean Michaels' latest video, adult AVN award winning actor, director and producer Sean Michaels discussed with me the possibility of Banan's World PR, and myself, handling some of Sean Michaels' publicity.
Sean and myself both grew up in the rough and tough neighborhood of Brownsville in Brooklyn, New York. This in itself, had to make us strong in order to survive. I can honestly say that Sean and I hope with god's help, this will be a Jagermeister year and not an on going battle with the WWF.
For maybe a select few, that have not been apprised, earlier this year Sean Michaels, the man and the Name, who has been a part of the foundation of the adult entertainment industry for many years, was handed a low blow by multi billionaire Vince McMahon.
To my knowledge, Sean Michaels, has never turned his back from lending a hand and giving employment to any new talent either male or female that knocked at his door. He has always been there and always will, for the betterment of the industry.
Sean Michaels who is loved by fans and friends alike, throughout the world, truly knows how it was for him early on in his career, when Sean Michaels decided against the advise of many and made a very controversial and bold statement of his Name. He opened his own video production company. Sean Michaels Production/SMP International.
Sean and I tabled our discussion until he returns from tour and I return from holiday in Europe this June. I have kept silent on this very issue, mainly because of my deep fond friendship and admiration for Sean. I did not want to write or say anything that could possibly harm him, in his battle to keep his name.
I did not believe when I read several years ago another company, tried so desperately to use the Internet to blind side another good and decent person in our industry. I speak of Ms. Nina Hartley. Ms. Hartley did not sit back and allow big cooperate America to take her name. If memory serves me well, I was corresponding just as a fan with Ms. Hartley by email. I so admired her stand and knew deep in my heart and mind, as long as she did not step back, turn and give up, she would win out, and she did!
What the WWF, is trying to pull just to make another few million is so tragic. To try and strip a mans dignity by taking his name away, after he worked his big black beautiful butt off, to make it what it is, is so very tragic.
In mentioning his big black beautiful butt, I was sitting here in my studio, last evening just thinking of how cruel and disrespectful they have to be to think they can do this and possibly get away with it. I was so thinking of a way to solve this dilemma, with out a long drawn out court battle in the mainstream press and the media. I truly do not believe that either Mattel Cooperation or the WWF needs that kind of bad publicity just over a doll.
My suggestion, if Vince McMahon is man enough to stop playing with dolls and ready to put this to rest, is a "Fuck-Off" in Las Vegas NV, between himself and who else: Sean Michaels, winner takes all.
We would appreciate all of your support, so we could get this match going.
