We’ve featured quite a lot of the excellent queer web series The Three Bits, which follows three different members of the Bits family – the gay Henry, lesbian Roman and straight Madison. Now the show has gotten the creators in a bit of trouble with the police, but it wasn’t for anything gay they did.
Nope, the law was fine with the fact Henry’s episodes are about him trying to set up an orgy, but they did want to check up on controversial scene featuring a woman appearing to snort cocaine off a baby’s body.
Because of this scene actress Erin Markey (who plays Madison) was contacted by authorities on Nov. 4th, according to a press representative for the show. Writer-directors Max Freeman and Margaret Singer told HuffPost they ended up being rather amused by the incident, saying, “After we’d had a minute to sit with the news, we wondered who had called the cops in the first place. It’s a silly skit on youtube, but someone actually picked up the phone, dialed 911, and told them that we were endangering a child.”
They also note that the fuss “reveals the very baby hysteria that the skit was meant to poke at… Did the person not understand that the scenario was fictional? Or, knowing that it was fiction, were they so angry that they wanted us to get in trouble with the cops?” However they have added a disclaimer to the video at the request of the police, which you can see below.
