Woman accusing Horatio Sanz of sexual assault claims Jimmy Fallon may have known about their relationship

A woman who last year accused Saturday Night Live contestant Horatio Sanz of courting and sexually abusing her when she was a teenager now alleges that some of her cast and co-stars , including Jimmy Fallon, were aware of the abuse but did nothing to stop it. .

In August 2021, Sans’ accuser, a Pennsylvania resident known by the pseudonym “Jane Doe”, filed a high-profile complaint against the comedian, alleging that he groped her breasts and touched her genitals in front of his colleagues during an SNL after-party in 2002, when she was only 17 years old.

Sans’ attorney Andrew Brettler at the time vehemently denied these claims, calling them “ridiculous” and “categorically false” and accusing Doe of failing to secure a multi-million dollar settlement.

Now, the accuser has broken her silence with an explosive revelation released by The Daily Beast detailing her alleged history with the Sans and SNL, as well as the alleged abuse she says began when she was Fallon’s teenage superfan when he was in the cast of a long-running comedy show.

According to Doe, other NBC employees were aware of Sans’s inappropriate relationship with her, which included public displays of affection at parties attended by fellow cast members and staff.

“Horace, of course, is the main character here, but he insulted me for a reason; he insulted me throughout the show “Saturday Night Live,” the woman told the publication.

Accuser Horatio Sansa, known as Jane Doe, has spoken out about the alleged sexual assault for the first time since the lawsuit was filed last year.  She claims fellow SNL cast member Jimmy Fallon may have been aware of the inappropriate relationship between her and Sans.

Dow said she was 15 years old when she became part of the nascent online SNL community and created a fan page dedicated to Fallon, who was her favorite actor. She said that Fallon and his friend and office colleague Sans emailed her to thank her for her efforts.

This was followed by flirtatious conversations between Sans and a girl half his age, and Doe soon said she began attending after-parties and after-act parties as Sans’s guest. She claimed that many SNL employees saw her using alcohol and drugs at those events, despite the fact that she was underage at the time.

In her lawsuit, which lists Sanz and NBC as defendants, she alleged that the actor pulled her to his body and touched her buttocks, like few of his co-stars.

According to the plaintiff, Fallon, who currently hosts The Tonight Show, was aware of her age and even helped her prepare for standard fitness tests.

Her lawsuit alleged that when Dow told Fallon she was in high school when they were sharing a plate of squid, the comedian replied, “So you have a few years before graduation.”

The complaint went on to state that “the people at the table became very quiet when the plaintiff reported that she was in high school.”

At the same event, Dow said that Fallon introduced her to Lorne Michaels, an influential SNL creator and producer.

During a party in the early 2000s, Dow said that Fallon introduced her to SNL creator Lorne Michaels (pictured with the Emmys in 2021).

Doe’s friend, who attended a 2001 cast party, said she saw the teen sitting with Sans and Fallon “like buddies” and Sans, who was 32 at the time, acting like the girl’s boyfriend.

A friend who goes by the pseudonym Katherine said the couple seemed “cuddly” and hugged each other.

Katherine told the Daily Beast that at another party, a famous SNL cast rubbed her leg and called her “beautiful”, which scared her. At that time she was 17 years old.

Another friend of Doe’s, who identified herself as Melissa, told the publication that she thought Sans may have also tried to woo her when she was 15, sending her flirtatious messages and gifts, including event tickets and steaks.

Dow said she aspired to work for SNL and tried to impress Sans by looking and acting older than her 16 years.

“I felt like Horatio made me think I was more mature than kids my age,” she told the publication. “It was such a disgusting, perverted act on his part.”

In May 2002, a woman’s lawsuit alleged that she was invited to a nightly party at an unnamed SNL actor’s apartment, which was filled with provocatively dressed women.

As they sat together, Dow, then aged 17, claimed that Sans groped her breasts and touched her genitals in front of several actors and NBC employees, one of whom exclaimed, “Are you fucking serious? ‘

Later that night, a complaint alleged that Sans had digitally entered Doe through her pantyhose.

Doe said she was confused and angry after the alleged sexual assault. When she confronted Sans, she said that he blamed her for the incident and later told her that Fallon “didn’t care if she was a whore”.

Just a few days after this comment, Dow said she closed her Fallon fan page, which she had been working on for three years.

Doe told the Daily Beast that the most disturbing part of her ordeal is knowing that Fallon, whom she idolized as a teenager, witnessed her interacting with Sans.

“I don’t know how many of our conversations happened while he was in his office on NBC, which he shared with Jimmy Fallon… but I know I deserve to know,” she told the publication.

Last year, Sanz, through his lawyer, flatly denied Doe’s allegations.

“Before filing this suit anonymously, she demanded $7.5 million in exchange for her silence,” Brettler, the actor’s lawyer, said. “We, of course, refused and will strongly dispute these completely baseless claims.”

Doe’s lawsuit alleged that because of her experience, she became isolated from her peers even after entering college and suffered from shame and depression, eventually taking “dissociative drugs” to the point that she required hospitalization in 2005.

While she was recuperating, she said she exchanged text messages with Sans, who steered the conversation to the topic of sex, as was his habit, and told her that at the age of 17, she had an “awesome body.”

The two have kept in touch over the years. According to the lawsuit, Sans’s interactions with her “remained manipulative, demeaning, abusive, and abusive towards her.” In 2019, the actor allegedly admitted to Doe that he enjoyed himself during their online chats while she was in high school.

According to the complaint, Sans subsequently issued a written apology to Doe, telling her in part, “If you want to meet me, you have every right,” referring to the #MeToo movement.

Sans appeared on the NBC program from 1998 to 2011.  In recent years, he has been seen in films such as Clifford, Zeroville, Sex Addict and Actors Anonymous;  and TV shows such as GLOW, Black Monday, Duncanville and The Mandalorian (pictured 2019)

Despite admitting that what he did was “wrong”, according to Doe, the comic also sought to downplay the alleged violence.

“Hugging a 16-year-old is far from Kiddy, damn it,” he allegedly said. “Not suitable, but Jesus. Baby bastard?

Doe said that despite having chat logs from the early 2000s documenting her conversations with Sans, testimonies from her friends, and even Sans’ alleged confession, the actor still hasn’t accounted for his actions.
