Finally, The Sword isn’t the only blog that a porn star is threatening to sue.
Because when you have already been on a reality show, gone str8-for-pay, thrown a Fleshjack out a window, been arrested (and cleared) in a domestic assault charge, and made a hotel sex tape with fake poop, what else is there to do but sue a porn blog?
This blog war is pretty stupid/boring as far as blog wars go, but never overestimate the threshold of what constitutes “news” here. Last week, Manhunt Daily’s blogger Dewitt attacked Steven Daigle when he wrote this blog post about him, which is actually about an event that happened three months ago.
In the end, the award show itself wound up being a lot of fun! It really got me into the spirit of the night, so I decided to make my very first introduction—to [Daigle’s dog] “Porno Payton.” For those of you who aren’t in the know, that’s the nickname given to Steven Daigle’s dog.
As I swooped in to shower Payton with my puppy love, Daigle did a complete 180 degree turn and walked in the other direction. I stood in the same spot for what felt like forever, insulted that I had just been given the cold shoulder. […] Fuck you, Steven Daigle. And your little dog too.
If telling a dog to fuck off on a blog seems harsh, don’t worry, Dewitt has since apologized (to the dog, not to Daigle).
And today, The Sword has obtained this response letter that Steven Daigle wrote to Dewitt. You should X out of this window right now and go do something else.
I have asked you on numerous occasions, and in numerous formats, to respond to me concerning the blog you wrote about me on March 29th, 2012…In this blog you go above and beyond your duties as a Manhunt Blogger (I would hope that your duties don’t include airing personal feuds or issues with individuals on a personal level and completely unrelated to Porn, Manhunt or anything remotely resembling news.) by bashing my reputation. Specifically my reputation as it pertains to event appearances and general public behavior towards fans or any individuals I come in contact with. I have specifically asked that you respond to one thing in particular you wrote “Daigle did a complete 180 degree turn and walked in the other direction. I stood in the same spot for what felt like forever, insulted that I had just been given the cold shoulder by someone whose fantasy I made come true.” However true your statement may be that I did do a 180, it is written out of context and lacks all Merit and Validity when combined with the following: I have no clue who you are or what you look like and you made no attempt to contact or speak to me therefore I had no idea you were wanting my attention or waiting for me. I also have explained that I was in a rush to get my dog out of the bar as the music had started playing very loudly and the bar was filling up with patrons, both were beginning to frighten her, any immediate 180 that I made was simply because you were in my way and not allowing me to exit. Being in the public eye for many years now I have learned to deal with so called “writers” and “Bloggers” who, for whatever reason they have, chose to bash my time in the Big Brother House, porn performances, my online behavior and/or my many public “meltdowns” as they like to refer to them. This has become a normal part of my life and for the most part I am happy to let them write what they choose to write and get on with my life. However, your post specifically hit a soft spot with me for several reasons. First is the fact that I was always told by the staff at Manhunt, those that I have had contact with, what a good guy you are and they even asked that I autograph numerous items for you because you had always been a big fan of mine. In addition I do not understand why you have chosen a public venue, like your blog, to suddenly attack my personality and credibility as being known as a friendly and down to earth person in public settings. You may or may not be aware that part of my income is generated from the appearances that I do nationwide at Gay Prides, Bars and other venues where I am asked to meet with fans and patrons to chat, take photos or just simply say hi. It is essential that I be a social and friendly representative of not only my name, but the Venue themselves, promoters and studios who help sponsor these events. As I stated in one of my many responses to you, I can provide references from bar owners and promoters starting from the West Coast and moving to the East Coast of the US, Canada and the UK. I have proven myself as being an outgoing, friendly and down to earth guy that never leaves an event without hearing “Great job, we would love to have you back anytime.” Basically your accusations are not only hurtful on a personal level, but also on a professional level which can very easily effect my ability to get further appearance work in the future. I have spoken to a lawyer who has stated that by printing what you have I do have grounds to start a defamation of character suite against you and Manhunt Daily if a sincere apology and retraction is not printed and the original story removed.
While Steven Daigle is actually a very nice person in real life and The Sword can objectively state that Dewitt is an awful monster who should never be allowed to blog again, Steven Daigle’s suite against someone’s personal experience and opinion probably won’t hold up in court, seeing as how, uhh, duh.
