Horatio Sanz Groomed a Minor as SNL Cast Members Looked On

The onus is on the adult to not bring starstruck teenagers to parties, and certainly to not digitally penetrate them without consent.

That's the reality of our culture.

Granted, Horatio seems dumber than the average 12 year old.

I read the longer article and the more this woman talks, the more I have these unanswered questions, which I'm sure will get me labeled as blaming the victim.

Where were her parents and who agreed that it would be a good idea to let a 15 year old go to an after party? If she felt abused, molested, or violated, why did she continue to go back for more? Why did she stay in touch with her "abuser" for such a long period of time? Why did she not ask for help or tell her parents when the abuse started?

My point is that she and the people around her take no responsibility for their own bad judgment. If you wander into a dangerous situation and get violated one time, then I feel sorry for you and deserve some justice. But if you wander into a dangerous situation repeatedly over an extended period of time, then you might just be stupid.

If I'm sitting near coked out Jimmy Fallon and he's giving SAT advice at the after party, alarm bells go off. It would be nice if someone had said "Horatio, don't bring underage girls here. Go get a prostitute, or join a gym and quit pot so you can attract adult women." I can hear this in Seth Meyer's voice perfectly.

The fucker wasn't looking to tutor these girls and keep them on track for college.

At the end of the day, Jimmy is gross for being close to the situation, and Horatio is responsible for his own actions.

I was 18 when I got my first job in Hollywood. It was working as an intern at the hottest agency in town (at the time). A "boutique agency" with only young hot and up-and-coming actors and writers. I would've fucked whoever I had to, to get a leg up, right out of the gate. So, I have no sympathy for this grifter chick. She used sex as currency and was left holding the bill, and now she's pissed! The fact she named 20 additional defendants is highly suspicious to me.

No, R44, I don't. Your brain evidently keeps developing well into your twenties. Your point seems disingenuous to me.

In January 2000, Sanz allegedly “began his process of grooming Plaintiff,” which included an October 2000 in-person meeting after an SNL taping. According to the lawsuit, Sanz became “flirtatious and physically affectionate with the then 15-year-old Plaintiff by kissing her cheek and putting his hands on her waist” during their in-person meeting following an SNL taping. The lawsuit claims that in 2001, Sanz began talking to the minor on AOL Instant Messenger and intentionally “steered conversations to discuss sex, sexual experiences, sexual activities, sexual fantasies, masturbation,” as well as “solicit inappropriate photographs” from Doe. - Vanity Fair

Teens act like little kids because adults treat them like little kids. Why do you think teens act out, rebel and find high school boring? Because instinctively they desire freedom to leave their nest and be fully functional adults who work, travel and have experiences. They are full of energy and a desire to make their own path. Maturity in fact comes from life experience. A spoiled brat with rich parents will always grow up to be immature and childish. While a child from a lower-class home who has to work a part-time job and take care of their younger siblings while their parents work will more than likely grow up to be responsible. Other cultures put more adult responsibilities on their teenagers and they are far less likely to act out and be rebellious for the sake of it.

Yes the brain stops developing in the mid-20s. But clearly maturity comes more from your environment and upbringing. As way too many American adults in their middle age and above are still stupid and immature.

[quote]The timing of Jane’s connection with Sanz turned out to be significant. Weeks after the two started chatting on AIM in late August 2001, she recalls visiting the wreckage of the World Trade Center with a friend. She and Sanz had begun chatting routinely—about who might have been in on the attacks and what America’s path forward might look like. The conversations made her feel mature, an ongoing theme of her dynamic with Sanz, who at the time was twice her age—32 years old to her 16. She can still remember the smell of smoke that hung in the air over the debris at Ground Zero.

What has turned me off to her is hearing about her behavior since she has become an adult. She supposedly tried to blackmail Sanz for 7 million dollars. She also kept in contact with Sanz for years afterwards.

Also, I don't like the way that she decided as an adult to indict all the SNL cast members who may have been at parties with her. Additionally, it was obvious she wanted to get into Jimmy Fallon's pants so she pretended to be interested in his fat, ugly friend Horatio. As an adult, she should be honest with herself about that but instead she tried to make Fallon a center of the case so she could get more money out of NBC.

I hope she is also suing her parents.

The legal responsibility is on the parents to supervise and make decisions about their children.

If a company, group or individual drafted rules, created choices or made decisions about how to supervise (or not) their child and/ or interferes, supersedes or contradicts parental care or her individual’s choice - and she got raped anyways or she lost a career-changing opportunity with the job,

the parents would sue.

THIS is why no one intervenes nowadays.

As someone who had a close friend in college who I learned many years later was being accused of sexual harassment and date rape, I had no clue. I knew he was a womanizer and dated a lot of girls on campus, but I did not know either first hand or indirectly through others of improper behavior. Being friends with someone does not implicate you of things they do, especially if you were not aware of it. Personally I was bisexual and I myself had a short affair with a professor's assistant (a female) when I was 18 and she was late 20s. Today it would be not just inappropriate but grounds for possible termination. Back then it wasn't a big ethical issue. If it was consensual nobody cared.

She probably views them as "enablers: But, in the early 2000s, laws may have been lax and there might not have been anything the cast members could have done. I also think she probably has resentment towards those cast members because Tina Fey produces a lot of projects and casts Gasteyer, Rudolph, and Dratch quite a bit.

I'm surprised the accuser hasn't bitched up a storm regarding the comedy podcasts Sanz did for the several years before the scandal broke. He was in a lot of Scott Aukerman's Comedy Bang Bang podcast episodes and other podcasts produced by Paul Scheer, Matt Besser, Lauren Lapkus, and others in the LA improv crowd. But, a lot of podcasts are paywalled on Stitcher Premium. Sanz often seemed to show up on improv podcasts were the other improvisers were usually millennials who are 10-15 years younger than him.

This is 20 years ago and I don't know the extent, but they were dating at the very least in an on and off situation until 2019, when she was 37 yrs old.

She only filed this because of whatever happened in 2019. But she was fine with things until then. I can't get upset for a 17 yr old who consensually dated an adult

God, I’m so tired of this shit. It’s like the satanic panic of the ‘80s. The girl was 17. That’s young, but it’s the age of consent in New York. I’m so tired of everyone who made a bad choice when they were young now targeting their exes or hookups as groomers and predators. Evan Rachel Wood was recently talking about her abuse at the hands of Marilyn Manson, describing how he was initially sweet and caring with her as “classic grooming behavior.” Um, no, that’s classic behavior for anyone trying to date someone or simply get laid.

Also, R140, the thing that "happened" in 2019 was this:

In January 2019, New York legislators passed the New York Child Victims Act. This revolutionary Act amends the state's statute of limitations to allow child sex abuse victims more time to come forward and seek the justice they deserve against both their abuser and the compliant institutions that enabled the abuse.

A poster on that reddit thread mentioned something Google having archives of news altgroups and that might be easy to figure out her identity.

When I was 13, my family got dial up internet service and I followed some SNL fan sites. This was 1998 and back fan sites were really basic looking. I remember one fan site was run by a teenage boy who I think was 17 at the time I started reading his site. I can't recall if he attended tapings, but he had pics of himself with SNL cast members. I wonder if this young woman crossed paths with that guy because he somehow seemed to have connections to cast members. I think his name was Sean. I stopped following that site after a few years. I recall visiting some SNL forums in the early 2000s here and there.

by Anonymousreply 155June 21, 2022 4:30 AM

The Daily Beast article says the accuser lied to her parents and never told them about going to SNL parties and tapings. She had some after school job that she used to pay for train tickets to go to NYC. I might have missed it, but articles don't mention where she lived. She also said that she wanted to and believed that she would eventually work at SNL and that she viewed the activities as networking. My take she was a naive kid who thought hanging out with Sanz, Fallon, and others was going to guarantee her some kind of SNL job later in the life. But, Sanz and Fallon probably had no interest in ever helping her work at SNL. The other article that mentions Rachel Dratch and Tina Fey laughing at Sanz and the accuser. I'm guessing the accuser's networking activities rubbed Dratch, Fey, and others the wrong way and they probably viewed her someone trying to fuck her way into SNL employment.

The Daily Beast article mentions that in 2019 the accuser reported Sanz to Upright Citizens Brigade. I don't know what the fuck she expected them to do, since her incidents with Sanz never took place at UCB communities. UCB should only be held responsible for shit that goes on at their premises. I wonder if she trying to get UCB to tell her dirt on Sanz.

R156, the more you describe this woman the more she sounds like a classic groupie. But instead of rock stars, she liked comedians. I wonder how many guys in the comedy world she has gone through? Approaching 40, she must have been disappointed that she never hooked someone big in the comedy world like John Mulaney's baby mama did.

Also, if her parent really didn't know, it's because they didn't want to know or didn't care. She was out all Saturday night and returning home (if she actually did) on Sunday mornings at the earliest. As I recall, she lived in Pennsylvania which is a long way from NYC.

Also, why should Fallon or Sanz have been interested in getting her a job? Most of the people associated with that show had to struggle and go through rigorous auditions before they landed a spot there. And what exactly was her talent? What does for a living?

I think a NY jury would laugh at her story. Too bad for her, so much time has passed since the original MeToo# outcry that she is likely to get the Amber Heard treatment.

by Anonymousreply 157June 22, 2022 12:32 AM

R157 She does sound like a classic groupie and I'm sure she was viewed as that by some of the people at SNL. There have been probably other SNL groupie types before this woman was involved with Fallon and Sanz. There have probably been other groupies after this woman.

[quote] I wonder how many guys in the comedy world she has gone through? Approaching 40, she must have been disappointed that she never hooked someone big in the comedy world like John Mulaney's baby mama did.

I wonder about this as well since one of the articles mentioned something about her seeing Sanz at comedy festival in 2019. I'm betting she probably went to various comedy fests nearby to either get near Sanz or other comedians. If she lived in Philly as a teenager, the train ride into NYC would be a few hours. She probably found ways to sneak into comedy clubs or improv theaters in NYC. She reported Sanz to UCB, she may have been hanging out at UCB NY as a teenager with Sanz. I wouldn't be surprised if she also hung out at comedy clubs or other improv communities.

[quote] Also, why should Fallon or Sanz have been interested in getting her a job? Most of the people associated with that show had to struggle and go through rigorous auditions before they landed a spot there. And what exactly was her talent? What does for a living?

SNL has/had a practice in which cast members can recommend people for writing jobs on the show. Katie Rich, the SNL writer who got suspended for making the joke about Barron Trump was hired to SNL writing staff on recommendation by Cecily Strong. . Strong and Rich are friends from i0 in Chicago. The other example I recall is that Mikey Day was hired on recommendation by Nasim Pedrad. My guess is that this woman was somehow hoping Sanz or Fallon would do something similar for her. I think SNL cast members getting their improv pals jobs isn't necessarily a bad thing if the pals recommended for jobs have decent writing talent. It seems like this woman likely thought she was on a faster track because she was hanging out at SNL as a teenager.

R158 that is what I'm wondering. Did she ever do improv? Like Colin Jost recommended Michael Che to SNL and Fallon recommended Andy Samberg but both Che and Samberg were already doing things in the comedy. They had experience. That's why I want to know what type of work this woman has been doing.

Like Colin Jost recommended Michael Che to SNL and Fallon recommended Andy Samberg but both Che and Samberg were already doing things in the comedy. They had experience. That's why I want to know what type of work this woman has been doing.

I also wonder what she's does for a living. I have the feeling she isn't working in the entertainment industry as seems to have resentment towards some of the monetary success some SNL cast members like Fey, Meyers, and Fallon have had. One of the articles that mentioned her going to UCB to report Sanz gave the impression that she didn't really know in the beginning about how to take legal action against him. Basically UCB told her to contact NBC.

It's possible Sanz told the accuser to get into an improv group as SNL mostly scouts from improv communities for writers and cast members. Improv isn't glamorous and basically performers have day jobs or do commercial work to pay the bills while doing improv at night or on weekends. I listen to a lot of comedy podcasts from improv performers or actors who got started in improv and the stories they tell range from audience members constantly giving them shit when performances flop, having shows cancelled due to low ticket sales, issues with improv team members, theatre owners and artistic directors, theaters moving spaces because of rent issues and property tax issues etc. Some improv performers have done cruise ship work or college campus tours which can be draining. There was some podcast where a performer mentioned doing shows on an Alaskan cruise ship and she described it as miserable because most of the people going to the shows were older people who just didn't understand improv.

Given that Sanz's accuser got to go SNL after parties as a teenager at expensive restaurants or SNL cast member homes, I can't imagine she would have been happy to hang around other unknown performers at improv theaters doing very low budget sketch or Harold shows or traveling around in cruise ships or college campuses. On the other hand, SNL isn't all that glamourous. SNL is one of the lower paying workplaces in the entertainment industry. Former cast members and writers have said the work schedule is exhausting. Larry David hated the all night writing sessions and fought with higher ups on that when he was writer back in the 80s. I also recall a former SNL cast member saying that working on sitcoms was easier than SNL. It's sort of sad that the accuser had it in her head that SNL was some kind of comedy utopia. But, she doesn't come off as all that sympathetic with how she basically expected Fallon, Sanz, Lorne Michaels, and others to get her work at SNL just because she was tagging along to afterparties.

I think it could have been a situation where the girl wasn't attractive enough for Fallon and Sanz went after her.

If this goes to trial, I hope newspaper or magazine journalists are allowed in because it would be interesting to see how defense attorneys would cross examine the accuser especially since 20 plus years have gone by. Also, articles mentioned she asked NBC for 7.5 million in exchange for her silence.
