He just lost all his contracts with Verizon.

They pulled all his ring tones, pics, phones, etc... In response to this story.

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

I might get some slack for this but, I don't think he should have lost his contracts and be in trouble for this single occurrence. It was a concert in a club right? where there are suppose to be rules right? If you ask me, security is should be in trouble for letting on under-ager in. And whether Akon is crude or lewd, people wanted to see him so obviously he has fans in Trinidad. And I was looking at some personal pics of her from like May of 2006 when she was like 13 then and there is one where is looks like she taking a pic of herself topless. I just have no tolerence for fast little girls who think they are grown and cry victim to daddy later. I'm done = )

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

The club was supposed to be 18+. She snuck in somehow.

I don't think she is crying victim. Someone upthread said the father had no qualms about what she did until the media made a big deal out of it.

I'm disturbed that people are emphasizing her age on this one. Sure, that's a factor, but in what world is it okay for anyone to throw around another person like that without prior consent? I don't care if she's 14 or 40; it just isn't cool.

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

I made that same statement to a friend. When I go to a music concert (of all places), I DO NOT want to see simulated sex. Volunteer or not, it's in poor taste, but not unexpected from someone who sings "I Wanna F*ck You". And, the age thing....It's the same as the R. Kelly case(s). As a 14YO, she had no business there, but since when is it OK to take advantage of women (of any age) because they're "hot to trot"?

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

Wow. I just saw the video & read the article. I had seen the one w/ him & Tara Reid. It seems that Akon likes to get a bit 'physical' when he dances w/ the ladies on stage. I think young girls who have all of these hormones buzzing around everywhere & these full-blown woman bodies...get wrapped up in trying to be these sexual beings. Their minds are still those of young girls, mind you & when the two collide, especially at a concert, on a stage, with someone like Akon, in front of a bunch of people...craziness can & probably will ensue.

Getting dry humped by Akon isn't my thing, but when I hit the clubs I was all about it. I'm sure for the most part, for her - it was hella exciting. Of course when the whole world can see it, parents-included...well then of course you're ashamed - NOW. I think she just got in way over her head...Akon didn't know her age, so when he seems someone dressed sexily & willing enough to straddle him - he probably thought all systems go. I'm not trying to defend him as I think he's mega icky - but is molesting the right word? No, I don't think so. However during that video...if she were uncomfortable it's not like she could have pulled herself away, that man had her ALL OVER that stage. Pretty f-ing intense. Ahhh, I dunno. If she was underage she shouldn't have been allowed in the club. Period.

Maybe now she'll realize that while you should never be treated a certain way b/c of your appearance - this is the real world, where you will be. And grown men can act a certain way that she might not be ready for, so she needs to avoid putting herself in sticky (ew, haha) situations. Now men behaving that way doesn't make it right or fair if it's unwarranted. You still have a responsibility to yourself to realize that a lot of shit's not fair but to still be safe. I've snuck out of the house looking decent & changed into some hooch gear after. It wasn't my parents' fault. Kids can be sneaky as hell. The world's a crazy crazy place. That's my story & I'm sticking to it!

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

I'm a VERY conservative person. And this coming from someone who's a feminazi and gets disturbed even with kissing in public. I believe that stuff to be intimate and private. I think that's plain nasty. I nearly puked when I saw that video. I felt like I was basically watching sex on my computer screen. He's throwing her around like a rag doll and what disturbs me the most is that there are people around, it's public. I don't want to see that shit! I don't care what age the girl is. I'd still think it's nasty, disturbing, and wrong even if it was a 25 year old. Her being 14 is the sprinkling on top.

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

I think people wouldn't have even cared if she were 18 instead of 14

Akon's probably done the same thrashing around before on stage.

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

Verizon dropped their sponsorships deals with him. One was ringtones of Akon, and they also pulled out as a sponsor of Gwen Stefani's tour.

Sorry if this has already been posted in this thread.

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

More astounding is that if some random man did this while a random woman was walking down the street he would be charged with sexual assault.
It's all in context.

I doubt a random man would have a random womman jump on top of him and grind on him as he was walking down the street. Having the whole thing on tape, it's hard to really say he didn't do anything she didn't want.

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

Not the point.
It's still context.

Acting in that manner to a stranger on the street is unacceptable, but acting in that manner to a stranger in a club/concert environment is apparently okay.

Yeh, basically. It's ok to behave in certain ways depending on where your at. Just like I would feel fine kissing someone in a park, but if I was at Midnight Mass with my family on Christmas Eve, making out wouldn't in the pews wouldn't be well recieved.

Had they done that in public, lets say, on the sidewalk of a main street, and witnesses seen what they did, I still don't think it would have been sexual assault. If she was saying NO, STOP! And he continued, then yes. But if she's getting up on top of him, you would have a hard time convincing anyone that she didn't do it willingly. Especially if it was on film, regardless of location.

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

The film quality is pretty poor. Even if she were grinding him before, how do we know she didn't say "Stop!" when he was throwing her about?

I don't think she did because of the way the accusations are reading, but it's a possibility.

There were plenty of witnesses on stage, so if she wanted him to stop I'm sure someone would have heard it.

The real kicker, do you really think he means a word of it?

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

Well, of course not. If he were really sincere about an apology, he would've released it ASAP.

Re: Akon accused of molesting a 14 year old on stage.

I don't think the point of this is whether or not she left the house that way or snuck out of the house that way. So 14 is what, 9th grade? What 9th grader belongs at an Akon concert at a nightclub? What responsible parent doesn't know where their 9th grader is at night? And if i'm correct, this occured on April 12th? That's a Thursday. I dunno about Trinidadian school systems, but that's a school night for most. Again I ask, what responsible parent doesn't know where their 9th grader is on a school night? I'm not a parent yet, but you best damn well believe my child will have her ass at home, and if she's not at home, I'm going to make it my duty to know where the hell she is. Parents lacking that kind of responsibility and knowledge in their kids' activities and whereabouts are the parents who get a phone call from the police department or morgue in the middle of the night.

A 14 year old has no business in a nightclub, PERIOD. The same way a grown ass man has no business humping a young woman, again whether she be 14 or 25 or whatever. It's crude, it's crass and its disrespectful. However I have to agree, for someone whose song lyrics spell out nothing but misogyny (sp?) and a lack of respect and value for women, is it really that farfetched? Did anyone really expect him to bring a woman up, sit her on a chair and sing around her with a rose in a romantic fashion? This guy sings a song that proclaims how bad he wants to fuck a stripper, and bend a woman over "til she can't take no more."

It's ridiculous to defend his actions or hers, but I will say that some of the blame should be placed on this nightclub for not executing stricter rules on checking identification. They somehow allowed a fourteen year old, presumably 9th grade girl into the environment, why hasn't anybody sanctioned them or questioned them? Why isn't any of the responsibility on their shoulders?

And I have to agree with the previous comment, that if this had happened to a girl of legal age, nobody would care as much. And I'm sure people would care even less if it were two non-famous people of legal age humping and bumping on each other at a nightclub, oh wait....this happens everynight and twice as often on Thursdays, cuz it's ladies' night!

It's not okay, none of the behavior of the parties involved is okay or defendable. Not the girls, the parents, Akon's or the nightclub.
