Arkansas Judge Mike Maggio has confirmed that he leaked information about Charlize Theron’s adoption on an LSU message board. The judge is also owning up to a series of racist and sexist comments on the same board.
How sad — Charlize Theron‘s adoption was leaked on an LSU message board by Judge Mike Maggio along with a series of terrible racist and sexist comments.
Judge Leaked Charlize Theron’s Adoption Online
Judge Mike Maggio, 52, confirmed on Wednesday, March 5 that he is responsible for leaking information surrounding Charlize Theron‘s adoption of her son, 2-year-old Jackson Theron, on a Louisiana State University message board under an anonymous handle. The post about Jackson’s adoption was written in January 2012, nearly two months before Charlize announced and confirmed the adoption herself.
Here is what Mike wrote in a post under the subject ‘Charlize Theron adopt a baby today?’:
“I don’t know if right board but I have a friend who is the judge that did [Charlize’s] adoption today. It was a single parent adoption. I offered to be the baby daddy. He said she came dressed with long brown wig, oversized clothes, trying to camoflauge her appearance. They took pics but can’t be published because closed proceeding. He said she did have an entourage…”
The post takes a racist turn when the first comment asks him if the baby is black and he simply responds: “Yes.”
“I take full responsibility for the comments that have been attributed to me,” Mike said in his official statement. “I apologize deeply for my lapse in personal judgment and for that, I have no excuse. The comments posted were not acceptable. These comments are not a reflection of who I am.”
Judge Also Responsible For Racist & Sexist Comments
The judge’s username is also behind numerou racist and sexist comments on the same message board in multiple different threads. Some comments are so disgusting they even compare LGBT couples to beastiality — which if you don’t already know means sexual acts between humans and animals.
Here is a taste of some of his horrifying comments:
“Men have two needs. Feed me and f**k me. Take care of both and we will be good. Whichever one you don’t then the man will find.”
“Hey look if you can have [LGBT] sex then it is just a small step to [sex with a pit bull].”
Judge Mike is a married father of five children whose term as a 20th district judge expires this year, and the Arkansas Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission is currently investigating Mike’s posting history on the website. Since admitting he is responsible for leaking Charlize’s adoption details and making racist comments, Mike ended his political campaign for a seat on the Court of Appeals.
