Ron Jeremy and the Great Magnotta Sting Operation (Almost)

Did you hear the one about how Porn King Ron Jeremy was invited to participate in a sting operation to catch kitty killer Luka Magnotta, long before he became infamous for posting a real-life snuff film online?

Actually, it's not a joke. Media outlets reported on the bizarre story last week; I couldn't make this shit up, even if I wanted to (which I don't).

As the story goes, the plan to catch Magnotta was hatched by a group of animal rights activists who just happen to star in a reality show on Discovery Channel, Rescue Ink. They enlisted the help of former Playboy Playmates The Barbi Twins (Sia and Shane), who contacted their pal Ron Jeremy in the hopes of luring Magnotta to Los Angeles in order to confront him about the kitty-snuff videos. 

The bait? Something that Magnotta would be powerless to refuse: an invitation from the biggest name in porn to star in an upcoming skin flick.

Although Jeremy initially agreed to the cunning plot, he ultimately determined that he simply wasn't cut out to mess around at catching criminals and backed out of the elaborate operation.

"It’s like an episode from some TV show. The [guy] comes to the set with lube in one hand and his schmeckle in the other thinking he has a job, and the cops tackle him to the ground. That’s good for the movies. That doesn’t work in real life."

According to the National Post:

The Barbis and Rescue Ink expressed concern at the time that the kitten killer in the video could eventually harm humans.
“I think it kind of spooked Ron,” said Barbi. “It just got a little bit creepy for all of us.”

Creepy, indeed. It has been reported that Jeremy was unaware that Magnotta had been arrested for murder until he was informed by a journalist in a recent interview.
