Model Sues Abercrombie & Fitch For Masturbation Photo Shoot

Ummmm….

A former Abercrombie & Fitch model is suing the company for $1 million after he claims a modeling agent hired by them ordered him to strip down and masturbate in front of the camera.

Benjamine Bowers was referred by A&F to shoot with casting agent Brian Hilburn, whom apparently told Ben that he would look more "relaxed" in his photos if he um, well, finished himself off.

Instead of backing away and leaving the shoot, Ben decided to take things in how own hands and do what the agent told him to do.

But, now he's basically regretting everything and is afraid that none of it was to help further his career, but instead, it was all for Hilburn's benefit.

The big question is, why did he agree to do it in the first place??

Hobbit Casting Agent Fired…And For Good Reason!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm Flickers

casting agent fired from the hobbit

This is seriously NOT COOL! We're glad Peter Jackson and his production company did the right thing and immediately fired this person.

A Hobbit casting agent was fired after placing ads in a regional New Zealand newspaper which said that they were seeking extras with "light skin tones."

Not only that, but the casting agent reportedly told potential extra Naz Humphreys, a Pakistani woman, that she couldn't play a Hobbit because of her skin color.

Here's what the casting agent told people at an audition:

“We are looking for light-skinned people. I’m not trying to be … whatever. It’s just the brief. You’ve got to look like a Hobbit.”

Here's what a spokesman for Peter Jackson's production company had to say about the casting agent's claim that they are only looking for light-skinned people:

“No such instructions were given. The crew member in question took it upon themselves to do that and it’s not something we instructed or condoned. It’s something we take very seriously.”

Poor Hobbit crew! It's been such a long, tough road and now they had to deal with this too!

We hope this is the last of the drama for them!

Do U think the casting agent deserved to be fired?
