Christy Mack Posts Surgery Update Photos, Is Predictably Slut-Shamed By the UG

It has been just two months since Christy Mack was heinously assaulted by former boyfriend Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver, and the adult film star is still facing a long road to recovery. While her ex-boyfriend has been claiming that she “got what she deserved” while awaiting trial ever since, the adult film community has rallied to support Mack, raising nearly $100,000 to pay for the long list of medical expenses that she has ahead of her.

In the time since her assault, Mack has remained all but silent on social media, only occasionally emerging to thank her fans for their ongoing support. Recently however, Mack posted a photo update to to her Instagram page and let us know how her recovery is going, along with the following description:

Sometimes half of your temp teeth decide to fall out to match the rest of your face. Thanks to Dr. Motykie for fixing the damage to my nose, and Dr. Adam Lousignont of Las Vegas for the temp tooth fix… again. Left was Monday right is today. What a difference a few days makes! I’m starting to breathe out of my nose again and today I’m going to get my glasses. One day soon I’ll be going to New York to see Dr. Toscano and get my permanent teeth.

Just an awful, awful situation that Mack has been subjected to, and one made even worse thanks to the heartless reaction she has received from the always reliable Internet.

You see, because Ms. Mack happens (or happened) to work in porn, she is therefore a target of perpetual cynicism, sexism, and misogyny — a truly vile and heartless creature who deserves no sympathy other than that found in the form of a rehashed punchline. And while we all know that the UG forums have devolved from a once respectable place of humorous information-sharing to a TMZ-esque cesspool of hate and gossip (not unlike some place you know, amiright?), their treatment of Mack’s recovery has lowered the bar to a level that not even James Cameron could attempt to rescue.

So without further adieu, I give you the most horrific jokes made about Christy Mack on the “Pre and Post Surgery” UG thread.

Well, Mack’s claimed that she is done with porn, but you totally dissed her there, bro!! Up top!!

It’s more likely that her face is unrecognizable due to the 18 broken bones around her eyes, broken nose in 2 places, and several missing and broken teeth she suffered while being beaten by a trained killing machine who holds close to 100 pounds on her, but yeah, dick jokes!! (*fist pumps*)

I get it, because dongs go in there! No wonder there are so many sought-after toothless pornstars dominating the business! Logic burn FTW!!

OK, this one was kind of funny.

Alright, we’re right back to making rape jokes about a woman who was brutally assaulted! And outsiders say that our sport breeds a culture of “horrific misogyny” and “biological determinism masquerading as enlightenment.” Way to prove them wrong, buddy!

Jesus. This one’s not even a joke. It’s just plain mean-spirited, is what it is. I feel bad for the small army of stray cats this person has drowned in their bathtub in between bouts of self-scarification and crying jags.

Ehem…

Our buddy Vince over at Filmdrunk has a saying that goes something like, “Be nice to the people that give you a boner,” and it could not be more relevant to the cretins on this UG thread. For the life of me, I will never understand how people like these can…let’s say frequent the work of someone like Ms. Mack one minute while slut-shaming them the next. It would be like going to your favorite restaurant and ordering a Prime Rib, then insulting the chef before telling him that you’ll be back tomorrow to see what piece of shit he’ll cook up next.

And look, I’m not going to act like I’m someone who doesn’t appreciate dark humor. I made a joke about tryptophan being the preferred date rape drug at Thanksgiving last year, and have laughed at more 9/11 jokes than I care to admit. But I also have the common decency to realize that maybe an issue like a woman being beaten within an inch of her life warrants a little restraint, especially in the time before she has even recovered from it. Was Ms. Mack involved in a somewhat questionable industry in many of our eyes? Perhaps, but for the love of God people, that in no way equates to the vicious response she has received while trying to recover from the most physically and emotionally damaging period of her young life.

So I praise you, Parts Unknown, for being a goddamn human being. As for the other 99% of UGers who used Mack’s recovery as an opportunity to lob unoriginal, hate-filled jokes her way, congrats. MMARoasted would be so proud.
