Liberal Disney Star Charged with Child Sex Crimes
Hollywood actor Kyle Massey arrested and charged
Liberal Disney actor Kyle Massey is the latest Hollywood star to be arrested and charged with child sex crimes, according to reports.
Massey was arrested for attempting to lure and groom a 13-year-old girl into being raped.
Massey, the former Disney Channel star of That’s So Raven, is facing a felony charge for allegedly sending pornographic material to the minor.
He is the latest in a long line of Disney employees who have been charged and convicted of sex crimes against minors.
Rather unsurprisingly, Massey was vocally critical of President Donald Trump, who fought hard to stop child sex trafficking while in office.
Old tweets have now resurfaced that show Massey's anti-Trump messaging.
In 2016, shortly before Trump was elected into office, Massey blasted Trump by tweeting: “You ain’t got the answers trump….”

In March 2020 he also slammed President Trump for offering stimulus money to hard-working American families who were struggling financially due to lockdown.
He tweeted: “Trump.. we will give Americans a 2 trillion dollar bail out. Voters.
"We paying for that s**t”

The case against him was filed in King County, Washington on June 14.
He is accused of grooming a 13-year-old girl during the period of December 1, 2018, and January 31, 2019.
The 29-year-old actor has, so far, been charged with "one count of communication with a minor for immoral purposes" according to TMZ.
Per legal documents obtained by the outlet, Massey has been accused of sending sexually explicit content to the girl electronically, around December 2018 and January 2019.
In March, Massey was sued for $1.5 million for allegedly sending "numerous sexually explicit text messages, images, and videos" via Snapchat, but the actor claimed he was being extorted.
The report adds that this most recent charge is connected to the previous civil suit.
Back in March, Massey vehemently denied the first round of allegations, calling the $1.5 million lawsuit levied against him a case of extortion.
Massey said in a statement through his attorney, Lee Hutton, at the time: "No child should ever be exposed to sexually explicit materials and I unequivocally and categorically deny any alleged misconduct."
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the unidentified girl and her family met Massey when she was four years old and stayed in touch with the actor over the years as she began her own entertainment career.
She reached out to him in late 2018 with hopes of auditioning for a role on the recently-rebooted Raven's Home.
The lawsuit also contends Massey then suggested that she fly out and stay with him and his girlfriend in Los Angeles while she looked to get a talent agent.
Just days later, the child contended Massey sent her a number of sexually explicit text messages, images, and videos.
Supporting his claims of extortion, Massey maintained the accuser's legal team demanded $1.5 million earlier this year and threatened to go public to destroy his career if he didn't comply.
The actor said he shot down the demand.
He has asked fans, and the public in general, "not to jump not to jump to conclusions based on the allegations alone but reserve judgment until the whole story comes to light, proving these allegations baseless."
Massey played Cory Baxter on the Disney Channel sitcom, That's So Raven, from 2003 until 2007, and the spinoff show, Cory In The House, as the title character from 2007 until 2008.
His resume also includes Dancing With The Stars season 11 in 2010 and guest-starring roles on The Practice, Gotham, Being Marie Jane, and the voice of Jeremy on Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Accoridng to The Daily Beast, several other children have now come forward claiming Massey sent them lewd messaged on social media.
