I have always been Sensitive......
Having such a sensitive nature makes people either Love Me or Hate Me!! I have no control over which one you choose and for the record sometimes I hate myself but I will always love myself at the end of the day. Most people who do not like Me or even Hate Me will tell you the following:
He is always bad mouthing Co stars and other people in the Industry.
The Co stars I have bad mouthed in the past, was for a reason. It brought more attention to the scenes and added that alittle bit of fire and buzz surrounding the scenes. The feud with Kameron Scott was a perfect example of that!!! I took alot of the blame, people were tossing insults at Me. "Oh Diesel your older than him, and should know better" "Oh he's a kid Diesel and has the right to make mistakes" I took everything thrown at Me and still moved on to do other work. And to the other people I bad mouthed in the Industry was just because they were Users, Abusers and people who only thought about themselves and would step on anybody to reach the top or attain a goal. And that is something I can't stand esp when I helped these people get Press, or roles without even a THANK YOU from them!! But because I speak about it, I'm the bad guy who is always told "Leave it alone Diesel, and move on!!" I don't let it move on, because it was done to Me. If the same thing was done to you I bet you would see things my way. Sue Me I have a personality!!
He is always complaining about how people did Him wrong?? Or just complaining in general..
If I complain about it, that means I care about it so much I show my true reactions. If you see something that is unjust don't you speak about it?? If you let the problem go and ignore it, it just becomes bigger and bigger until you can't ignore the issue any longer. I complain about the things I see because I want change!! I paid my dues in this business, and I think I have the right to voice my opinions. Again Sue Me for having a personality...
Always pulling the Race card in the Industry and causing problems.
I will always pull the race card, it effects Me and my business. I didn't want to cause waves at first because I had to get my foot in the door. You can't address the problems with Race in this business unless you have proof, and time after time I have seen the ignorant behavior right in front of my eyes. From the models, Studio heads bah bah bah... The health issues are getting worse, and am I suppose to wait around until I become Sick or HIV positive to say something??? To help out other models, I had to step forward and become the Hated One!! Someone has to do it!!
He always plays the Mandingo character and never adds nothing new to his performances.
I guess some people are not familiar with my Porn History, I started out playing that character that everybody wanted to see!! The big bad black motherfucker that just rips the white boys a new hole. I did that so well, it has followed Me throughout my entire career!! I added dimensions to the character(Romantic scenes, fetish, being submissive in bondage scenes, bottom in water sports, and just recently being rimmed)but most people remember my scenes when I first started and I just can't shake that first impression people have of Me. Oh well..... I guess I was that convincing.
He is always so Cocky and thinks He knows everything!!!!
I will admit I can be Cocky sometimes, I call it self love though. If I don't love myself How can I expect someone else to love Me?? We all have Egos(Porn Stars), you cant be a porn star without having an Ego. I think I am grounded and have a good head on my shoulders or else I would KISS ASS, BROWN NOSE, and tell people what they wanted to hear just to work or get roles!! And I don't know everything, but I'm a Vet in this business so I do know somethings... Just saying LOL
The people Who do like Me know this about Me:
I speak my mind
I'm not a follower, and tend to "Think Outside of the Box"
You can't deny that Diesel Washington has a personality
He wears his emotions on his sleeve
You ask for an Honest opinion you will get one from Diesel, no holds barred!!
He writes his blog from the heart, none of this Glam bullshit!! And he gives you insights about his life, growing up, working in the business, Ups and Downs all the above..
So some People may Hate Me or Love Me!!
The point of this post is to illustrate that I'm doing my job. My job is to make you think, make you react(wheter good or bad) my job has been successful for almost five years.
Five years of Haters, Supporters and Fans WOW!!
So when I get all the Hate email, nasty comments on other blogs featuring stories about Me, then I have done my job. When people stop reacting to Me wheter Neg or Pos then that is when I need to retire and fade away....
Five years later....and people are still talking about Me!!! I must be doing something right!!
