What a shame.  For years he's been the biggest star at the financially troubled circus  He admits to coercing an aerialist to pose for pornographic pictures back in 2004.  She recently contacted circus management, evidently inspired by @MeToo.

A shame because he DID it or a shame because he got caught?   

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Of course it was a shame because he did it, not because he got caught. I have deleted my comments on how rude you were implying I approved of his behavior.

Why do you always assume the worst of posters?

1.  This is from nearly a year ago...obviously the op didn't care all that much.

2.  TO ME, his wording was odd....like it was a shame the biggest star lost his/her job.  

 

IT STRUCK ME AS ODD.   Shoot me.

I saw Big Apple Circus last year on x-mas day & he wasn't in the show by then.
Also, sounds like this year's show is almost all new acts, and a new ringmaster.
