BUCKCHERRY's Record Labels Sued Over Sexy Video of Minor

MTV.com reports: A lawsuit filed Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court alleges that Warner Music Group, Atlantic Records and others helped coerce a 16-year-old girl into making a pornographic rock video when the band BUCKCHERRY advertised for extras on MySpace. According to a Los Angeles Times report, the suit alleges that BUCKCHERRY asked fans to come to Hollywood's Key Club in October for a shoot for their song "Crazy Bitch". One participant was a minor identified as Jane Doe, who was allegedly given alcohol and filmed exposing her breasts, kissing another female and writhing against a pole while BUCKCHERRY performed. The video appeared online, where a "behind-the-scenes" clip was also posted that referred to the girl's first name, featured more nudity and had band members saying, "It's like watching seven hours of porn." The girl's attorney says she suffered severe emotional distress, was taunted and has been forced to switch schools since the clip circulated. The record companies and band's representatives denied any wrongdoing, saying someone was on hand to check IDs at the door and that the girl filled out release forms with false information. Once that was determined, the video was removed from the band's Web site, according to a lawyer representing the defendants.
