Ken Bone offered $100K to be on live sex-cam site in that glorious red sweater
Sunday night’s debate was a town hall event, which meant that regular, undecided voters were able to ask the candidates questions in an attempt to bring both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton back to reality. One man captivated viewers with his question about energy policies and his beefy red cardigan. Now that man, Ken Bone, was offered $100,000 by a live sex-cam site. Yes, really. As if this election weren’t terrible enough and one of the candidates hadn’t mentioned on a hot mic that he likes to grab women by the pussy, Bone, a willing participant in what could have been a civilized town hall debate, is now being offered cash money to be on a porn site. Everyone just take a deep breath.
In a statement sent to The Frisky, CamSoda said it reached out to Bone asking him to “take us all to the Bone Zone” during an hour-long broadcast in exchange for $100,000 and a stash of 25 disposable cameras. Who knew people still wanted throw-away cameras? I guess when it comes to Ken Bone, anything is possible. CamSoda reached out to Bone saying the sex-cam site was touched by how “distraught” he was when his question didn’t get the answer it deserved. An hour-long trip to The Bone Zone would surely alleviate this pain.
Bone is now an internet sensation and before you start feeling bad that he’s being objectified and offered a live-sex cam spot, remember that he sort of likes it. On Monday, he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and gushed about his 15-minutes of fame. Laughing about endorsement deals and possibilities, he recounted that his son, Logan, said, “Dad is the best kind of famous — internet famous.” Just like Kim Kardashian. Bone also said the red pullover sweater isn’t an everyday thing and told CNN he chose it because he accidentally split the pants of a suit he was going to wear.
I love that this guy asked a real question at the debate and looked like he wanted an answer. Bone told Kimmel he’s still not sure who to vote for, though. “Donald Trump is maybe more in line with my economic interests, because I work in coal, electricity, but I would really hate for anyone’s rights to be taken back,” he said. “We fought so hard to get marriage equality and rights expanded to other Americans, and it’d be unconscionable to me to see those taken away by a Supreme Court justice appointed by Donald Trump,” the potential sex-cam star said.
Yes, he is meme-worthy. But it would be a whole lot cooler if everyone listened to Bone’s solid question from the debate — What steps will your energy policy take to meet our energy needs while at the same time remaining environmentally friendly and minimizing job layoffs? — and spent more time asking the candidates one more time what they would do, since they didn’t really answer in the first place.
That being said, The Bone Zone would be a much-needed distraction from this election cycle, for sure. I’m going to go bury myself in my own oversized cable knit sweater and watch Netflix, because this is all getting to be too much.
