The article is actually the recounting the story from about 4 different sources, Katie Rice, Robyn Byrd, and two guys I forget their names, that all worked at Spumco at some point.
There's actually two stories here, Katie's and Robyn's. Jonk K never actually fucked Katie, he just harassed her constantly into fucking him, showing up on his couch nude (they worked in his home office, probably so he could harass her), joking that "you keep ignoring my advances. a friend of mine told me that i should just rape you"
While he did nothing more than harass Katie, what he did to Robyn was to me way more fucked up. He pretty much went out of his fucking way, like really played the long game since she was 13, at first under of auspices of "I'm the creator of Ren and Stimpy and I'd like to take an interest in mentoring you as an artist". He actually flew to her trailer park in Arizona a few times. They fucked in a hotel room in her home town on one of those visits while he was 15. He offered her a internship a Spumko, she ended up living with him at 16, while he was 37.
He basically succesfully groomed a 13 year old into a teen gf.
and then while she worked there, he would fuck her and take polaroids of them fucking. apparently he had binders, like STACKS of them that he'd show his male employees while his child girlfriend was blackout drunk at parties. The stories bout the pictures have been corroborated by the two former male employees named in the article.
Even if she was age of consent, the polaroid thing alone makes John K a piece of shit.
