Sky faces sexual assault claim

Lawyers acting for six men are trying to stop Sky broadcasting a reality show in which they are seen unwittingly kissing and caressing a male transsexual. They are planning a litany of legal charges against the broadcaster, including conspiracy to commit sexual assualt.

The six contestants’ case against Sky and Brighter Pictures, which is a subsidiary of Big Brother producer Endemol, is expected to include the claim that the companies conspired to commit a sexual assault on the grounds the men did not consent to being fondled by a man.

I guess I can see their point.

    I can see their point, up to a point but I think such a law suit would be unwise. For starters, kissing/fondling is hardly sexual assault and even if it was, it is a bit ridiculous to restrospectively designate the act as assault because of information subsequently received. (i.e. “Myriam”‘s sex). It wasn’t assault at the time. I’m no legal expert but I’m pretty sure that the contestants would have had to advise Sky prior to the program if there were anything they wouldn’t consent to doing.

    Anyone who volunteers for these type of programs should a) be prepared for ridicule and b) be aware that there’s so much reality tv about these days that there is more likely to be a “twist” than not, think Lapdance Island aka The Pilot Show or Joe (not quite a) Millionaire.

    I really do not agree with you because the part where you say “ghetto” kids may get the jokes but kids from the burbs mite not and take it a different way. If people do not understand em’s jokes then they are dumb and raised in an environment that is seriously to good to be true. I live in Detroit and i guess you can say imma “ghetto” kid, i grew up in brightmoe (brightmoor) right off of fenkell and im still there and im 16 years old. I mean really you cannot honestly say that “ghetto” kids and kids from the burbs are a lot different. Okay, kids from the ghetto are a lot more outspoken and are going to tell you what is on there mind but kids from the burbs try and act like “ghetto” kids if we really act that different. We may have seen more real life b.s. but really it aint that different. We talk different and dont act as proper but we still have respect and no whats right and wrong. Em is a good *ss rapper and cant nobody knock him because he is rapping about the sh*t he had to deal with growing up. Im pretty sure if you grew up in that environment, you would have just as much hate for your mother, father, and everything else so until then, i really honestly do not believe yall have sh*t to say about him.
