Larry Flynt Dangles $500,000-“Hustler” Offer to Casey Anthony
Is Casey Anthony headed to a smut magazine near you?
That seems to be the case if porn magnate Larry Flynt will have his way. According to the 68-year-old “free speech” activist, he is willing to give Anthony $500,000 up front if she agrees to pose nude for his adult magazine “Hustler.” Flynt said Anthony, who came to American consciousness during her much-publicized murder trial in connection with the death of her daughter, will also get 10 percent of all profits from her proposed magazine appearance. “If they want to get their hands on big money, they’ve got to go through me,” Flynt told the “Nancy Grace” show on Thursday.
Flynt said he decided to give Anthony the offer after “droves of men” asked him to feature the woman whose case and subsequent trial became one of the most watched events in television and social media this year. “They said, ‘Why haven’t you made an offer? Why don’t you want to publish her pictures?’ ” Flynt said. “They said, ‘She’s a really attractive person’ … I’ve never seen that happen before.”
Anthony was arrested and indicted in 2008 for the murder of her two-year old daughter. She was acquitted of all felony charges in July this year, but was found guilty of lying to a police officer. Anthony was released from jail on July 17 after serving more than 1,000 days in jail.
