TV Exec Garth Ancier

I Didn't Rape That Kid

4/22/2014 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0422_garth-ancier_mochael_egan_getty_tmzGarth Ancier -- who produced and/or developed an endless list of TV shows like "21 Jump Street," "Married ... with Children," "The Simpsons" and "In Living Color" -- adamantly denies laying a finger on the man who claims Ancier raped him as a boy.

Ancier's attorney tells TMZ, "All of the allegations made by [Michael Egan] against Garth Ancier are demonstrably untrue, and we are confident the courts will agree when the evidence is presented."

The lawyer adds, "As just one of many examples, Mr. Ancier has never even visited the estate in Hawaii where the plaintiff claims to have encountered him. Mr. Ancier is grateful to his friends, family and colleagues for their support."

As we reported, Egan has sued Ancier -- as well as "X-Men" director Bryan Singer and showbiz honchos David Neuman and Gary Goddard -- claiming they sexually abused him as a 15-year-old at various Hollywood parties.

Egan claims Ancier abused Egan numerous times by sodomizing him, forcing oral sex and fondling him at an Encino estate when Egan was just 15. Egan also claims Ancier sexually abused him in Hawaii 2 years later.

What is disgusting is how the same media which presumed guilt over all catholic priests and supported without question the Penn State victims are attacking this victim as a liar and supporting without question these rich men who have a "twink" obsession. I am sure these men could care less about the effect their conduct would have on a boy when 100s of them were naked at pools. Disgusting. Like Polanski all the tribe members will circle the wagons but then cast stones at Catholics etc etc. It is just atrocious the hypocrisy of it all. Clearly media could care less about kids when it threatens their institutions.

Sorry kid, this ain't gonna go your way. If you were in a alcoholic coma for 13 years, self medicating PTSD, but managed to remember everything one week before the statue of limitations for filing expire, you aren't credible. You were a teenager caught up in the promiscuous Hollywood gay lifestyle. This IS a shakedown for wrong choices YOU made. No one gets free money for that. Good luck.

All I'm gonna' say is: better late than never, hang them by their heels after fully exposing their guilt. And hopefully, par for the course will be changed in this previously ugly little corner of the world. Evil can't thrive in sunlight. BLAST this case WIDE OPEN.

He's a failed actor and this is his way of getting his cash and 15 minutes of fame. He's a whore plain and simple.

Like he's gonna say " oh THAT kid..I remember that night, wow was I wasted!" Also notice how they specify support of family friends and 'colleagues'. In other words, the bum buddies are circling their wagons.

It's this crap that silences the true victims of rape. This is the same as the women who try to get pregnant for the 18 year paycheck then cry rape for the money if they don't get pregnant. Crying rape almost always gets a settlement. Maybe if he wants a rape prosecution his mother should be charged as being complicit in it, as it was she who sent him to these parties.
