HOLLYWOOD, June 7, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Disney is facing backlash after news resurfaced of it hiring in 2006 a man to work on a children's series who was convicted of sexual crimes against children two years previously. 

Brian Peck was found guilty in 2004 of lewd acts against a child as well as oral copulation with a child. The child was reportedly a Nickelodeon star. While Peck pleaded “no contest” to these two charges, his original charges also included sodomy and attempted sodomy with a child, using a child for sex acts, and sexual penetration by foreign object with a child, reported An Open Secret.

Peck was hired by Disney, owned by ABC, to work on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody just one year after he was released from prison.

Before his conviction, Peck worked on Boy Meets World, All That, The Amanda Show, and other kids’ shows, according to his IMDB resume.

Disney's hiring of a convicted child sex abuser was used by various media outlets to highlight ABC/Disney’s hypocrisy in swiftly canceling the TV show Roseanne after star Roseanne Barr’s infamous – now deleted – racist tweet.

The news comes one month after Reliance Entertainment's Show Dogs was pulled from theaters after parents complained it groomed children for sexual abuse. 

An Open Secret, which highlighted the news on Peck's hire by Disney, is the title of a 2014 documentary that investigated the reputed rampant sexual abuse of minors in the film and television industry. Through its Twitter account, the film’s producers continue to uncover the entertainment industry’s darkest secret.

According to An Open Secret’s tweet, “documents show Peck was originally charged with 11 counts including: lewd act upon a child; sodomy of a person under 16; attempted sodomy of a person under 16; sexual penetration by a foreign object; four counts of oral copulation of a person under 16; oral copulation by anestesia or controlled substance; sending harmful matter; and using a minor [for] sex acts.”

“In the end,” continues the tweet, Peck “pleaded ‘no contest’ to two counts – lewd act against a child and oral copulation – and the court found him guilty of both. The remaining counts were dismissed.”

While the Disney brand is ostensibly built on child and family-oriented programming, parents and pro-family organizations have expressed outrage over the brand's promotion of the LGBT agenda as well as other politically correct viewpoints.

An Open Secret criticized the industry for being silent on “rampant pedophilia” in Hollywood.

“The silence on the rampant pedophilia in Hollywood is totally immoral & akin to murder given the number of suicides and accidental overdoses attributed to sexual abuse & mental manipulation in an industry that protects active abusers,” noted An Open Secret in a subsequent tweet.  

Peck is not the only registered sex-offender who has been convicted of child sex abuse crimes and then hired by ABC/Disney after their conviction, According to Celebrity Insider.

The report states:

In 1988, the child actor from the movie Clownhouse Nathan Forrest Winters told his mother at the end of filming that the director Victor Salva had been molesting him for approximately five years. Salva was found guilty on five of the 11 original counts after he confessed to the sexual abuse and video recordings of him abusing Nathan Winters were found in his home.

Police also found videotapes and magazines featuring child pornography as well.

Though Clownhouse was a low budget movie backed by Francis Ford Coppola, Salva went on to enjoy a thriving, lucrative career that was continually backed and supported by Coppola.

Victor Salva is behind the three Jeepers Creepers films.

Former child star Corey Feldman has been sounding the alarm for years, trying to raise the awareness of both the public and law enforcement authorities to Hollywood’s unfettered sexual abuse of young actors.  

Feldman has spoken out about how powerful men in the entertainment industry preyed on him as a child. He also speaks of his longtime friend and co-star Corey Haim, who died in 2010 at age 38. Haim was 11 when he was raped by a man on a movie set.

Despite Hollywood’s trumpeting of its dedication to politically correct, left-wing causes, it continues to praise films such as Call Me By Your Name which romanticize and celebrate pederasty with apparently no self-awareness of its own self-indicting hypocrisy.

In a tangentially-related development, at least one Disney World employee was among eleven men arrested in an Orlando, Florida area child porn sting operation on Monday. The men face a combined total of 660 felony charges.  

According to a local news report, law enforcement found depictions of child pornography in the now-former Disney employee’s possession involving children as young as three.
