Now Men.com Has Paired That Porn Star With The Racist Confederate Flag Tattoo With Paul Canon

Posted April 6, 2018 by with 59 comments

10Although he came forward last month to reveal that he had his racist Confederate Flag tattoo on his hand covered up by a new tattoo (meaning that he himself knew the Confederate Flag tattoo was racist), porn actor Brian Michaels filmed several scenes for several studios prior to getting that cover-up tattoo. Another one of those scenes is being released tomorrow, and once again, MEN has chosen to put the gay-for-pay ex-convict’s racist symbol on display in their content:

9Does anyone think this can’t get more problematic? Well, this is gay porn in 2018, so of course it can.

Brian Michaels’ co-star in this scene is Paul Canon, who made headlines in 2015 after he announced that he’s “not sexually attracted to colored people“:

coloredAs Canon’s tweet made headlines both here and on mainstream news sites, he eventually told one reporter that his Twitter account was “hacked,” and that he never made the racist statement. A year later, in 2016, he told his fans that he was not racist, and that he would work with an African-American model, “if the pay was right.” And the pay must’ve been right, because Paul Canon did in fact work with black models (and models of all races) in the aftermath of his racist tweet. Today, however, he’s working with Brian Michaels and the racist Confederate Flag tattoo, and the optics couldn’t be worse.

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 1.12.50 PM24As pointed out multiple times here, the question over Brian Michaels’ racist tattoo is not about whether or not Brian Michaels is a racist (there are, unfortunately, many racist performers working in porn who don’t have any racist symbols tattooed on their body, so even if Brian Michaels were a racist, this would be nothing new for the porn industry), the question is why multiple studios are choosing—over and over and over again—to deliberately make a racist symbol part of their entertainment. People with racist tattoos like the Confederate Flag that perpetuate and normalize racist imagery don’t belong on display in porn—or on display anywhere. And now, seeing the racist flag painted onto one person who is having sex with another person who has made blatantly racist comments…? You can’t make this shit up.

      lol

    • TheLisp

      omg lol!

    • Nordschleife

      Made is racist hell.

  • B.C.

    Interesting character. I’m assuming with the tattoo “Trust No Bitch” he is also misogynist? Well, he certainly picked up a new skill while incarcerated. One more thing: vapid Paul is looking hot.

  • Cosmic

    WOW, That’s a lot of bad tattoos to be divided up between just two people.

  • whodunit?

    Ugly guys inside and out.

    • HIkkI78909

      Paul Canon aint ugly on the outside tho. Just saying.

      • Hereweare

        For sure……..

      • Scrapple

        His brother is way hotter. And less messy.

        • HIkkI78909

          Who is his brother?

          • Scrapple

            I forget his name. He has a YouTube channel with his boyfriend.

          • sam my

            Alex and the channel was deleted since they are no longer together. Doesn’t help that Canon’s brother was convicted of filming a woman being sexually assaulted.

          • Scrapple

            I almost wrote “had” because I hadn’t checked their channel in a while and didn’t know if they were still together. So the gay brother is also fucked in the head, and the other brother is a homophobic closet case. Cool family.

          • sam my

            Minus the brother that passed away from the accident. I wonder what he was like.

  • Targareyn
  • Quinton Jackson

    This scene was endorsed by David Duke and gays 4 Trump.

  • AJ’s Black Widow
  • sam my

    Just looking at this I feel like I’m going to wake up to a burning cross in my front yard.

    • McM.

      Give it a year. All those “very fine people” are becoming real comfortable under this administration.

  • Scrapple

    In response to this trashy stunt I’m going to find another Black person to hug. Just because.

  • Devin

    I came here specifically for this update Lol I was like I wonder if Zach has posted about this, yet. MEN is trolling so hard right now. They have no shame and as I’ve stated b4 I will NEVER support this studio or anyone who works for them. Trash ass studio. I’m beyond disgusted at this point. Fuck MEN. I’m shocked no one has put them on blast. Like this should be a trending topic and MEN should be getting dragged all over social media, but it’s not happening. I wonder why

  • SteadyNUnremitting

    A match in bigot heaven.

  • Mani

    Is there anyone at this studio who has a clean track record?

    MEN needs a new set of directors!
    By using these racist pornstars, these studios are supporting them indirectly OR do the directors feel having such people makes the scene HOT? (for him maybe!) yuck. 🤢

    Anyways, I have membership at a better studio which is a bit pricey but its worthy since their actors are better looking and they have new guys very often instead of churning the same guys often like how this studio does. PITY!

    • BryBryTheNiceGuy

      what studio?

  • peter

    Paul’s gettin’ a bit of a dad-bod there. The 6-pak is becoming folds of fat.

    • Mani

      What else can we expect from MEN? For such a low membership rate, they’ve got to pay their actors too.

  • nick

    The tattoos I can deal with, but that hair “do”, no.

  • sassytop

    Haven’t paid attention to Paul since the racist story broke. Uhm, is that biohazard tattoo new? Maybe I just now know what it means.

    • Atticus

      He has had it forever. I assume that he had no idea what it meant before he got it.

  • pje821

    Brian is hideous-looking; this scene is unwatchable, despite my liking Paul.

  • Hereweare
  • Hari Kalyan

    Are we giving MEN too much credit though? They’ve proved time and again to be clueless. This scene was obviously filmed before he removed the tat. i doubt MEN was aware of the tat and have developed amnesia over Paul’s 3 yr old tweet for which he’s atoned all sins, at least where on screen is concerned. It was a mistake. People grow.

    • Scrapple

      At no point in the casting or creation of this scene did they notice the tat? At no point in uploading the scene, which was after the controversy, did they think “Maybe we shouldn’t?” Men has tons of scenes backlogged. They could’ve easily not released this one, taken the ‘L’ and posted something else. At the very least, they could’ve not used pictures where the flag is prominently featured. They could’ve reshot the scene after Brian’s tat removal. They don’t care. It’s as simple as that.

      • Hari Kalyan

        Agreed, they don’t care. And was this really that big a controversy? He’s not even a huge name in porn so I doubt MEN knew anything. Honestly i dont think they do tat checks of their models.

        • Scrapple

          They’re making it a bigger controversy by playing into it.

    • James Johnson III

      Atoned all sins how? by working with 3 dark-skinned people in his entire career (Including his 4 years at Broke Straight Boys)? There’s no way that’s atonement even for them

      • Hari Kalyan

        But is there a number that would be enough? I’m just saying sometimes you have to forgive people and give them room to grow and stop waving their past mistakes in their face. From what I know of the situation his remarks were about his personal preferences and then he claimed he was hacked? And seemingly in response to backlash he did a few scenes with the aforementioned dark skinned models to prove himself, so to speak. Now unless he’s continued to indicate a disdain/hatred/preferences against working with anything but white models then I’m inclined to let bygones be just that.

  • RioVerde

    Brian is so fucking ugly. Lay off whatever nasty drug you’re using.

  • TheThom

    I think Brian is beautiful. Despite the ink choices he’s made.

  • CamCam

    MEN is a TRASH studio that doesn’t deserve ANY of our money. We need to stop supporting them and this is a perfect example as to why. This is a disgrace.

  • ANTSLC
    • Scrapple

      Paul is Pro Mices. I thought every knew that. He even wants them to have their own country.

      • ANTSLC

        That was cute @disqus_6nRkGdeR7U:disqus I see what you did there.

    • pangelboy

      I thought he was making a “tired of your promices promices” joke, though it doesn’t really make sense in the context he used it in. Should’ve known better lol.

  • GN
  • pangelboy

    I always assumed Paul Canon was taking up for his boyfriend Damien who was getting heat when he said he wasn’t attracted to black people. Either way, I’ve avoided all scenes of those two asshats since. And forgot watching anything with Ms. General Lee in it.

    • Mani

      Damien as in Damien Stone, Paul’s BF?

      • pangelboy

        Damien Kyle was his bf at the time.

  • Jay

    Neither model is that appealing to me but I have to wonder after reading many of the comments below if toning down the hysterical headlines only designed to encourage a mob mentality amongst the readers and consider this; it seems that each of them has endured enough trauma for a lifetime and problematic childhoods. Give them a break. Did you see the mob at the baseball game in Ohio today? Sickening and Pathetic. And far worse than what we’re milking for all it’s worth.

  • Maximus
  • BLACKjHAMMER

    WOW 2 RACIST in one scene !!!

    So how much of a problem do you really have with racism in gay porn when you just promoted Paul Canon with the above link on your homepage?
