The Duke University freshman who turned to a career in porn to fund her education identified herself Tuesday in an online column in which she revealed a photo of herself under her stage name, Belle Knox. Knox – previously identified by her college newspaper as ‘Lauren’ – was the subject of an article that appeared in the Duke Chronicle last month about the male classmate who outed her as a porn star to fraternities and sororities at the university. In her column, Knox describes the bullying she’s received since word of her porn career spread across her college campus – and the Internet. Revealed: The Duke University freshman revealed this photo of herself in a column for XOJane.
My decision to do porn to pay for college was a private one I made, and then I was outed to my university classmates by another Duke student who had seen me on the Internet a few months ago,’ Knox wrote in the column, which appeared on the website XOJane. He proceeded to reveal who I was to the entire Greek system . Some of the harassment Knox describes include calls for her to leave Duke because of the humiliation she has caused the university, and some even saying that she killer herself. I bring nothing but bad publicity to my school, and I need to be silent,’ she writes.
Do I want to behave and be a good girl? Then “no more media,” I am told. The message repeated to me seems clear: “You are not a human being. You have no rights or feelings.
No matter what, just stay silent. Knox ends her column with ‘today, I am choosing to reveal my porn identity to the world. My name is Belle Knox, and I wear my Scarlet Letter with pride. Knox admitted that she acted in pornographic films under a stage name, but swore him to secrecy.
Have you ever seen such gross disrespect? For his part, Bagley denies having recognized her in porn, telling the Daily Caller that she actually confessed her secret to him. Both agree that despite his promise, Bagley blabbed at his next fraternity rush event. Once he leaked the secret, people across campus were texting and tweeting about the Duke freshman porn star within a matter of days.
The aspiring lawyer was crudely mocked and attacked online. We going to pretend like she was unaware of the social consequences of going into that business? She soon found herself talking to the campus newspaper about her life in porn, which Lauren would later call an attempt to control the conversation. However, Knox wasn’t entirely pleased with the Chronicle’s representation. While she thanked them for giving her a forum she also accused them of skewing her words and betraying her trust in a response on the blog Develle Dish, adding that they had ‘portrayed me as a naïve, attention seeking little girl who flaunts her wealth. 60,000 in tuition, my family has undergone significant financial burden, and I saw a way to graduate from my dream school free of debt, doing something I absolutely love,’ Knox – as ‘Lauren’ – wrote.
