In two brief tweets sent Saturday afternoon, porn star Stoya accused her ex-boyfriend, fellow porn star James Deen, of raping her.
Fellow porn star Joanna Angel has also expressed her support for Stoya.
Stoya, who is also a writer, was relatively silent about her break-up with Deen, which is believed to have occurred sometime in 2014. Deen has been heralded here and elsewhere across the internet as a man who has gotten women who aren’t into porn interested in it, both for his regular dude appearance and his sort-of embrace of feminism.
Stoya previously tweeted that she’d be “mostly offline” until December 17. Deen has yet to comment on her accusation.
