Kellie Rodriguez says she attended a recent taping of a Disney kids' sitcom with her minor children. However, But instead of a wholesome, family-friendly experience, Rodriguez says that she was forced to endure sexual misconduct by the designated “crowd entertainer” Ron Pearson.
Apparently, Ms. Rodriguez was chosen by Pearson, along with two other audience members, to take the stage and participate in a contest that involved doing a "silly dance.”.
According to suit, during the "silly dance," Pearson began spanking Rodriguez while her back was turned to him. "This unwarranted spanking was relentless, and did not cease until Plaintiff physically turned around to stop it," the suit says.
After the taping was over Pearson asked Ms. Rodriguez for a kiss on the cheek., “but when she went in to give him the peck, Pearson "turned his face and kissed Plaintiff fully on the mouth."
It is worth noting that Rodriguez did not win the contest.
Alleging sexual assault, battery, negligence, negligent hiring, and a host of other charges, Ms. Rodriguez is seeking unspecified damages, along with medical expenses, compensation for loss of earnings, legal costs and interest.
Disney has not yet responded to requests for comment.
