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.

As someone who was abused by a prominent member of the BDSM community and deleted my social media accounts because I couldn’t handle seeing him praised as a “feminist”, I’m awed by Stoya’s bravery. I hope she gets all the support she deserves.
