Big Apple Circus Performer Big Apple Circus Performer "Grandma the Clown" Resigns Over Sexual Misconduct

Grandma the Clown, a longtime fan favorite when the Big Apple Circus visits Boston, has departed the big tent after admitting he took pornographic photos of a 16-year-old acrobat.

In a statement released by his lawyer, Lubin apologized for his conduct, saying the sexual misconduct allegations are true and that he takes full responsibility for his actions. According to the Cut, former aerialist Zoey Dunne accused performer Barry Lubin in a letter that was sent to the Big Apple Circus on Friday.

The incident, which happened in 2004, saw Dunne told to wear a thong, spread her legs and hold a paintbrush up to her crotch, reported the New York Times.

But three months ago Dunne, now 29, learned on Facebook that Lubin was back with the circus. Before she would be able to join the troupe, though, Lubin wanted her to take a couple modeling photos for his personal photography business. In a statement published on Tuesday, Jan. 23, Lubin admitted that what he did to the then-16-year-old Dunne was wrong. He had recently left Big Apple, and a circus official told her they recognized the seriousness of her allegations, but that there was little they could do.

Dunne said she contacted police in 2011 or 2012 but was told that the statute of limitations had expired, according to The Times.

Lubin told Dunne the shoot was for a Japanese paint-on tattoo company, in return for $100 and freelance circus work. To get the best angle and show the most skin, she needed to pull her underwear to the side. In the second session, Lubin reportedly told Phillips that the company had loved the images and that they'd thought she was "one of the sexiest girls they've ever seen". "He's the friendly grandma, how could he harm you?" he told the Times.
