“Not a single Hollywood publicist who represents child actors has obtained a permit”
The #MeToo movement has barely scratched the surface of Hollywood’s internal rot. A new bombshell report from Deadline shows that a law specifically enacted to protect child actors from sexual predators has largely gone ignored since being signed into law in 2012.
Enacted five years ago thanks to the pen-stroke of Gov. Jerry Brown, law AB 1660 protects child actors by requiring “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.” Should they pass the screening, only then will they be issued a Child Performer Services Permit.
