Lisa Ann goes off about rumors she is sleeping with Ray Rice
Lisa Ann posed for a photo with Ray Rice last weekend, and she does not appreciate the assumptions that were made as a result.
TMZ caught up Ann this week, and the retired porn star turned sports radio personality unloaded on those who have asked her if she is sleeping with Rice because of the photo. The shot was taken at a charity basketball event in the Bronx, where Ann was a coach and her team won. Rice was on the losing team.
“We met, we took a photo, that was it,” Ann said. “I will tell you, I’ve been attacked by racists over the past 48 hours. I’m taking a no-social media day because I had to block over 1,000 people yesterday. I cannot believe the intensity of hate and racism directed at me because I did a charity event and took pictures with people.”
Ann said she is tired of not being shown respect because of her former career.
“Just because I do something, I’m not always having sex,” she said. “Just because I did porn — just like Ray Rice deserves a second chance in this world because he’s paid his price. He lost his opportunity. He’s no longer in the NFL. I deserve a second chance in life, too. I did my job. I retired and moved on. I’m working really hard at something else and I’m constantly harassed, disrespected and disregarded as a decent human being.”
Ann is a weekly contributor on SiriusXM Radio, where she talks fantasy sports. She is somewhat of a legend in the sports world, having claimed she helped one NBA superstar recover from a serious injury. Lisa has also offered to cook dinner for any athlete who wins a championship.
