LOS ANGELES, CA — Layton Benton appeared on TMZ Live last Friday, discussing how Chase Bank had closed the 22-year-old porn star's account without warning, based on her profession as a sex worker.
The interview originally appeared on TMZ and has since been picked up by The Huffington Post and CNBC.
“I think it’s really wrong for Chase to have closed my and other adult film stars’ bank accounts just because of ignorant assumptions,” says Benton. “Some legal action needs to happen, so they don’t get away with it and so it never happens to any of us again.”
Layton will be appearing at the Exxxotica love and sex expo in Ft. Lauderdale this weekend, at the Porn Star Tweets booth. Her appearance schedule is as follows:
Friday, May 2
5:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Saturday, May 3
2:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Sunday, May 4
1:00 pm – 7:00 pm
“I can’t wait to meet all of my fans and thank them for all of the wonderful support they have been giving me on Twitter since this story broke on Friday. I want to give everyone a big hug,” says Benton.
Benton is currently featured alongside Ana Foxx, Cali Sweets, Channell Heart, Cherry Hilson, Evanni Solei, Ivy Sherwood, Misty Stone, Monique Symone, and Yasmin Di Belle in the ebony Sapphic sex-fest, Black Lesbian Seductions, from West Coast Productions.
