Blind Item #9

There was a law passed a few years ago in California, which was supposed to help protect children working in entertainment from child molesters.  Unfortunately, it looks like nobody in the business is in compliance with this law, and nobody really cares, either.

Are we guessing the law?

That’s pretty apparent. Thanks Captain Obvious.

Oh I read an article about this weeks ago, like managers or people who work with kid actors are supposed to get certified but never do.

RE: another child actor law, I was surprised to learn that the Coogan Law is state by state and not universal. All laws covering children should be enacted in every state.

"The law requires publicists, managers, acting coaches and headshot photographers who work with child actors to be fingerprinted and pass an FBI background check to screen out registered sex offenders. Only then will they be issued a Child Performer Services Permit."

"There was a law passed a few years ago in California, which was supposed to help protect children working in entertainment from child molesters."

Sooooo...all other children in other occupations have no protection against child molesters in California?
Sooooo...all other children in other states have no protection against child molesters.

What logic.

Actors are too busy here lobbying to get unconstitutional laws passed to keep IMDB from posting their ages.

It might be interesting anyway, because a few years ago is before the current surge of stories. So what prompted the law at that particular time? Who sponsored it and got it passed, and why aren't those same people pushing to get it applied? I wonder if it was a case of the foxes trying to make it look like the henhouse was safe.

Is this linked to the California primaries blind that's supposed to be revealed soon?

Parents who let their kids act, or sing, or dance, on tv or professional stage or movies, in any fashion, should have their kids taken away from them.

I'm worried about their money too...they're broke by the time they're 18.

Are we supposed to guess the law here or..??
Seriously, what kind of BI is this?

Lol exactly what I was thinking. Not a blind at all. Deadline did a story on it two weeks ago.

Brayson got it.

Hollywood Child Protection Act (2012) has been treated like a guideline. Jerry Brown signed it into law.

""A Deadline investigation, however, has found that not a single Hollywood publicist who represents child actors has obtained a permit," reports the outlet. "Dozens of managers, acting coaches and photographers who work with child stars have also failed to comply with the law, which is punishable by a year in county jail and a $10,000 fine. And yet, no one has ever been charged with breaking it."

I give up.
This is a statement, not a blind.
How drunk does Enty get for Mother’s Day, ffs?

I think the law states....

That your not supposed to have sex with minors. But nobody seems to care.

An amazingly complex blind that took hours of tedious research and sleuthing to decipher... but I think we are on the right track now!! Should we call in @himmmm to assist?

Very serious issues surrounding the lack of enforcement. So many lives impacted. assumption is, background checks have been done. I’m glad ENTY hammers at this issue to keep it in the forefront.
