Gay Atlanta porn star says arrest a bunch of ‘lies’

The gay Atlanta porn star arrested last month for domestic violence fired back at media reports about the incident with tweets and a smiling selfie with the girlfriend that accused him of choking her.

Hylan Anthony Taylor, who performs in gay sex films as Johnny Rapid, responded with the selfie and other tweets Tuesday as details of his Dec. 15 arrest surfaced. Taylor faces a misdemeanor battery charge after an argument with his girlfriend allegedly turned violent. 

Angie Lynn Blankenship told a Rockdale County sheriff's deputy that the couple had an argument that turned violent outside a bowling alley not far from their home in suburban Atlanta. An incident report says that Blankenship said Taylor became enraged when she refused to take part in a three way with Taylor and a 14-year-old girl. Then he allegedly choked her, pushed her to the ground, bloodied her ear and threatened to get a gun.

On Tuesday, Taylor tweeted a photo of the couple, smiling, as he claimed “the media” is mischaracterizing his arrest. It's not clear when the photo of the couple was taken.

 

Taylor followed that with a random thought.

 

Then he clarified that he's a little more then gay-for-pay. He and Blankenship have a child, according to the incident report.

 

Not yet done, Taylor seems to challenge what Blankenship told sheriff's deputies about the violent incident and dismiss the allegations.

 

After that, he turned defiant.

 

Done with blaming the media for “twisting” the story, he – maybe sarcastically? – says all their attention is providing a boost to his porn career. (Earlier this month, he and Men.com offered Justin Bieber a $2 million payday to make a sex scene with him.)

 

Taylor also poked at Str8UpGayPorn, the industry news site that first reported details of the arrest along with the Rockdale News.

 

Taylor isn't the only porn star tweeting about the arrest. Former gay Atlanta sex film actor Charlie Harding weighed in, according to Str8UpGayPorn, giving Taylor and his arrest a pass. Taylor has partnered with Harding more than any other sex film actor, according to Str8GayPorn's NSFW rundown of Taylor's filmography.
