Kulich Offers 'Ashamed' Ex-PR Exec a Porn Opp
LOS ANGELES — Monarchy Distribution founder Mike Kulich has presented fired public relations executive Justine Sacco a porn offer of a lifetime.
Sacco, the woman who tweeted Friday that she was "going to Africa" with a few inflammatory words — "Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white!” — has been presented the "opportunity" to star in a video Kulich has in mind. Sacco, who was promptly fired by her employer, IAC, over the comments, later said she was "ashamed" over the comments.
The porn film would be called "Justine's African Vacation," and Kulich said the career-turner for Sacco would be a five-scene interracial movie.
Kulich is offering Sacco $10,000 and 10 percent of the profits, with the other 90 percent going to Aid for Africa, which notably and promptly purchased JustineSacco.com Friday night and redirected to its donation page.
Kulich told XBIZ that "Justine's African Vacation" would be a not-for-profit production.
"I don't intend to profit off of the shaming of an entire continent and group of people," Kulich said. "Sacco screwed up and she knows it. This is giving her the opportunity to pay her bills, offer an apology to all she offended, and contribute to an organization that helps people in Africa dealing with AIDS. We hope she seriously considers this offer."
Earlier this year the adult studio owner started up the nonprofit label, Manhole Productions, a gay line that was prompted by extremist homophobic treatment and lawmaking taking place in Russia.
The proceeds from the first film, Kulich said at the time, would go to gay Russian refugees seeking asylum in other countries.
