    'Grandma the Clown' resigns from Big Apple Circus for photographing acrobat, 16, pornographically

    • Description

      The actor behind “Grandma the Clown,” an iconic character from the Big Apple Circus, resigned after he admitted making a 16-year-old aerialist pose for pornographic photos in 2004, according to reports.

      The circus’s chairman, Neil Kahanovitz, told The New York Times Tuesday that Barry Lubin, 65, who played Grandma, offered his resignation Friday shortly after Zoe Dunne, the former aerialist, contacted the circus with the accusation.

      Lubin, through his lawyer, released a statement Tuesday night to the Times acknowledging and apologizing for his conduct: “The allegations are true. What I did was wrong, and I take full responsibility for my actions.”
