Updated at 10 p.m. PT with Twitter reaction from James Deen.

Deen responded to the accusations via Twitter Sunday night by saying: “There have been some egregious claims made against me on social media. I want to assure my friends, fans and colleagues that these allegations are both false and defamatory

“I respect women and I know and respect limits both professionally and privately.”

Porn superstar James Deen has been accused of rape by his ex-girlfriend in a string of inflammatory tweets.

Stoya, who is also an X-rated actress, dated Deen in 2013 and claims that he held her down and sexually assaulted her, but did not reveal when the alleged attack happened.

“That thing where you log in to the internet for a second and see people idolizing the guy who raped you as a feminist. That thing sucks,” she wrote on Twitter Saturday.

James Deen held me down and fucked me while I said no, stop, used my safeword. I just can’t nod and smile when people bring him up anymore.”

Joanna Angel, another of Deen’s ex-girlfriends, voiced her support in a tweet to Stoya, but the actor has yet to respond on Twitter.

The X-rated actor has recently been dispensing sex advice in his own column, “WWJDD,” short for What Would James Deen Do? on TheFrisky.com, but on Sunday the site announced it will no longer be publishing Deen’s writings in the wake of the accusations.

“I learned of Stoya’s accusation a few hours after she posted her tweets, and immediately made the decision to end James Deen‘s sex advice column with The Frisky effective immediately,” wrote Amelia McDonell-Parry, editor-in-chief of the women’s lifestyle site.

“Sometime tomorrow, the ads on the Sex section which link out to James Deen‘s website will be removed. We won’t be publishing WWJDD going forward, and I will be making a decision about how to handle the columns we’ve already published in the next day or two,” she continued.

Deen, who made his name in porn hits such as “My Sister’s First Anal,” “Gangbang Me” and “Wet Asses 2,” has recently found mainstream success in projects such as 2013’s “The Canyons,” opposite Lindsay Lohan, Showtime’s “Happyish,” and several short films, which he produced.

“It was a lot of luck,” Deen told TheWrap in October. “I’m loud, I do interviews and I get around. I’m slutty like that.”

He just finished shooting a new TV pilot. A documentary about his life has already been picked up by Showtime and is scheduled to air sometime next year.

Deen did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
