MTV has reached an out-of-court settlement on a lawsuit brought by Tonya Cooley, who alleged that she was raped by her Real World/Road Rules Challenge: The Ruins castmates while producers watched and kept the cameras rolling. Details of the settlement have not been made public, but earlier this year MTV’s parent company, Viacom, responded to Cooley’s complaint by saying, “[Cooley] failed to avoid the injuries of which she complains. [She] was frequently intoxicated, rowdy, combative, flirtatious and on multiple occasions intentionally exposed her bare breasts and genitalia to other contestants.” So they don’t deny that a sexual assault happened; rather, she had it coming.
Yeah. I don’t even know where to begin here except that this has made me nauseous all morning.
