A talent manager whose new talent appears in a primetime show was banned from the set of this show. Melo (not his real name), the talent manager was accused of asking one of the new male talents of the show if he is game for sex for pay.
I talked to Melo and he confirmed to me that he actually asked if Arthur (again, not the real name), the new young talent is game for a paid sexual service. Melo claimed that Arthur's manager himself confirmed that Arthur is game for such kind of deals. Melo simply asked Arthur inside the rest room if he would go for this deal with him. According to Melo's story, Arthur declined because the boy was quoting a high price that Melo can't afford.
After the incident, Arthur told their Executive Producer about what happened. And the management decided to ban the talent manager from showing up on the set.
I have been thinking. Was it really fair for the management to ban him just because he asked the talent for such kind of service? In the issue hurled against Melo, the talent was never forced. It was clear that there was no forceful act that was done against the talent. He was just queried for his asking price.
What do you think? Was the management fair in making such decision?
