A black adult film actor is suing a director after his white female costar called him the N-word twice during a scene without his permission.

Maurice McKnight, 38, whose porn star name is "Moe the Monster," filed a lawsuit at the Los Angeles County Superior Court against Arizona-based DF Productions, Inc. and James Joseph Camp III on Thursday.

McKnight claims that Camp tried to convince him twice to consent to the racial slur, but he adamantly refused. "I told him, 'No, I don't like the word,'" McKnight told BuzzFeed News. "I said, 'I don't care if she's OK with it—I don't like that word and I'm not down with it.'"

The adult film actor says his costar, Deborah Hinkle, whose porn name is Ryan Conner, was present during both exchanges but she said the word twice anyway while filming the ejaculation scene which was later uploaded to interracial porn website dogfart.com.

"I just felt violated and betrayed," McKnight told New York Daily News. "I've shot over 50 scenes for this company. For a long time, I was one of their top guys. And I'm always publicly talking about racism. For them to even ask me was an insult, then to do it against my will, it hurts. It feels like it was a setup."

Dan Gilleon, McKnight's attorney, said: "The use of the N-word in the workplace is extraordinarily harmful to African American workers. It's a violent, abusive word that embodies the pure evil of racism. It has no place in our society," he said. "Moe is going high by filing a lawsuit instead of acting in kind to this egregious act of racism."

According to the lawsuit, DF Productions, Inc. "targets racist viewers and entices them into paying DFI money in exchange for the right to view racist adult films."

After the incident, McKnight asked for the footage to be edited by the company, but the director refused his demands. McKnight alleged that Cable Rosenberg, the owner of the company, also sent him abusive messages when he continued to protest the "fraudulent act of racism in the workplace" over the next several months.

"Make your dick hard again and stop being a beta male… It's getting embarrassing. Anymore tortious interference and we'll take this to court," Rosenberg wrote in a text message to McKnight, according to the court documents.

Camp also said in a message to McKnight: "You're a disgrace. To your people. To your family. To yourself."

In the lawsuit, McKnight alleged that the messages not only "constituted further discrimination, they also determined the malice and ill will the defendants held towards McKnight."

Newsweek was unable to reach Rosenberg or Camp for comment. Hinkle has not responded to a request for comment.
