Two 13-year-old girls attending a live show based on the Universal movie The Purge: Anarchy at Universal Studios Hollywood weren’t expecting to be abused. The R-rated film’s plot is described as “one night a year, all crime – including murder – is legal for 12 hours.” As part of the theme park’s Halloween Horror Nights, during the stage show, one of the actors incorporated the two 13-years-olds into the show. He allegedly called them hookers and sluts. After the show the girls complained to their parents, one of whom lodged a complaint at the theme park’s website and tried to get management on the phone but her calls were not returned.
Famous feminist attorney Gloria Allred has been hired to represent the girls. Allred said “she is not yet seeking monetary compensation for her clients, just a meeting with Universal management, an apology and some policy changes.” At a press conference this week, Allred set out to prove that the girls didn’t deserve to be call hookers or sluts by showing people what the girls wore that night. (Does that mean if they had dressed differently they would have deserved it?)
