Rumors continue about Austin St. John

As I was doing a search on facebook for other people giving word if they were cast as a new power rangers, I ran across people posting that the original red ranger's a gay porn star LOL. People still fail to do their research.

Rumors fly fast!!! Hopefully they'll get informed with the truth by a PR fan or too.

I think it just started from a misconception, someone saw someone that thought looked like him. But Austin cleared it up a while back though so that should have put it to rest.

Yea there was a really built gay man on Seancody.com who did sorta look like Austin. But clearly it wasn't. I've seen it and it's not austin.

I've seen it too and it obviously wasn't him. Sucks that a rumor like that is still flying around.

It's even sadder when parents know of the rumor and question it even now. I've got some friends who were huge PR fans in the past, who bring that up every now and then whenever there's a "red is a leader color" discussion.

Wow. This stupid rumor is still going around? Geez, don't people have something more important to do than to lie about a guy who hasn't been a tv star since the early '90s?

It's not even helping him get publicity at this point, it's just lying about him, period.

my friend dropped by today and saw my recent rediscovering of my 12 inch MMPR figures. I have all 6 on my desk above my laptop and we got to talking about PR for a lil bit. he asked me which was "touching little kids"? I said, "none, you probably heard the red ranger was in a gay porno, but that's not true." then he asked, "which one killed somebody?" *sigh* it was so frustrating haha, he just didn't get it.

"There's a gay porn actor who kinda looks like the original red ranger which confused some folks, and the convicted murderer who claimed he was a Power Ranger only was an extra in one episode."

Given that people still believe Mama Cass choked on a ham sandwich, 36 years after her death from a heart attack, this rumour still being around doesn't surprise me for a moment.

I had an arguement with a girl in one of my uni classes in first year about this. She is one of those popular people who think they know everything. They where talking about the subject loudly and she shouted that he was in a gay porn movie. She didn't believe me when I said he wasn't but I won that arguement in the end. It was pretty funny though. My uni classes where strange sometimes and pretty much figured out I liked to show or at least used to a lot.

Well, it does say good things about PR's longevity and relevance in pop culture if you're making the comparison to Mama Cass.

Anyway, I've seen the guy too, and he looks nothing like Austin St John. I guess that site doesn't like linking to particular photographs of its models? For the record, as PRdude pointed out, that link? Not really a safe one.

Too nude for my comfort, at least...

Of course, the easiest way to solve the problem is to show people pictures of Austin St. John post-PR. That's not someone who would be doing gay porn.
