A Duke University freshman that goes by the pseudonym “Belle Knox” was outed by another student named Thomas Bagley for starring in porn films to pay for tuition. He recognized Knox after watching her perform on an X-rated site. You watch porn, so what right do you have to judge someone you saw in something you were watching, Bagley?

Bagley had received some online backlash after he outed her, and Mike Kulich, the head of Monarchy Distribution, a pornography distribution company, gave his two cents.

“[If] he can shame girls for doing porn, I can shame him for watching it,” he recently said.

Kulich thanked Bagley for being a fan of the porn industry in an open letter to him, and he estimated that Bagley probably spends “$200 a week subscribing to the site.” He also suggested that when Bagley isn’t masturbating he gets good grades. On top of that, he offered Bagley $10,000 “to live out (his) fantasies.”

“We will make you a celebrity because it is apparent how much you love porn and attention,” Kulich said.

You sure opened up a can of worms, huh Bagley? As you might have guessed, Bagley has disabled his Twitter account, and he even told the Duke Chronicle that he regrets what he did. He says that Knox told him that he ruined her life, and he wishes he could “take it back.”

On Thursday night Knox had told Piers Morgan that probably every single person has watched pornography at some point during their life, and she thinks it’s “extremely hypocritical” that the people that consume it are the same people who condemn her.

“I think 80 percent of the world’s traffic on the Internet is pornography.”

Knox had made headlines in February when Bagley spilled the beans at a fraternity event. The news spread like wildfire on the campus after that, and Knox said there came a point where she felt unsafe, so the school let her take a few days off.

In the interview with Morgan she talked about how she decided to go into the porn industry when she got her financial aid package from Duke and saw that she was going to need to shell out $47,000 a year. She said the financial aid was “insufficient” and an “enormous financial burden” on her family.

She decided to start shooting adult films since she could set her own schedule, and the pay was good. For one scene she makes $1,200. Knox also says that she hid her part-time job from her mom and dad, and she now regrets that.

During the interview, she also talked about how she would support her own future daughter if she wanted to go into porn one day.

“I would want my daughter to make an informed decision about her career and I think it’s absolutely her choice,” Knox said.

If you’re wondering about her first name, she said it’s from the princess in Beauty and the Beast, as well as the character Belle du Jour from the TV show Secret Diary of a Call Girl. Her last name is from Amanda Knox.

I think student school tuition can be pretty expensive, and this was the way Knox chose to deal with the “insufficient” financial aid that she had received. You may not agree with what she does, but I think as long as she’s happy that’s all that matters.
