It's not unusual that I'm out of the loop on hot adult-industry (or real-life gore) news, so it's not entirely surprising that I missed this one. But heck, I had no idea that Luka Magnotta killed cats, too!
You guys remember Luka, right? He was all the rage a month or so ago when he killed that dude and ate his body or something? Then he posted the thing on the internet? Then he got arrested, I think? Also, he made pornography from time to time before that? Anyway, it turns out that before he became a big star for his "one lunatic, one icepick" video (which was awesome, by the way), he made a bit of a name for himself by making similar videos in which he killed cats and posted them on the interwebs! Weird!
But hey, it gets even more slightly interesting! Did you know that an elaborate sting was set up to catch Luka for his kitten-killin' activities, involving none other than pornographic household name, Ron Jeremy? It's true! Except for the part about it being elaborate, as it turns out that the sting operation was actually about as far from elaborate as you can get, but whatever!
Yeah, apparently there's this group of hard-ass dudes who called themselves Rescue Ink. They're an animal rescue organization made up of ex-cops, street thugs and various other types of tough guys. I had thought it sounded like the sort of group you'd see on a Animal PLanet or TLC show, and lo and behold, when I looked 'em up it turns out that they have a National Geographic Channel show! TV party tonight! Anyway, these dudes had a brilliant plan to have Ron Jeremy (along with the Barbi Twins in some manner I don't fully grasp as of yet) attempt to hire Luka Magnotta for a shoot, and then - this part's the kicker - pounce on him once he appeared on set!
Foolproof, right? Yeah, I guess not. And sir Hedgehog wasn't 100% sold on the idea either.
"It's like an episode from some TV show. The (guy) comes to the set with lube in one hand and his schmeckle in the other thinking he has a job, and the cops tackle him to the ground. That's good for the movies. That doesn't work in real life," Ron recently told the press.
So Ron backed out. Which makes sense, because the plan was pretty half-baked. Honestly, the one-sentence description I wrote above is about the enitre scope of it from what I can tell.
Lucky for everyone involved, Luka moved on to murdering people and thus found his way into the authorities hands without the need to involve any other celebrity porn faces. And only one guy had to get eaten.
