“Beginning in or about 1976 and continuing until approximately 1979, Adam Savage, would repeatedly rape Miranda Pacchiana and force oral sex upon her, and forced Miranda to perform oral sex on him, along with other forms of sexual abuse,” reads Miranda’s lawsuit filed in Westchester Supreme Court.

According to the suit, Savage would be just around 9 to 12 years old around the time when he would show such aggressive, lewd behavior towards his sister, who would be about 7 to 10 years old. Furthermore, the ‘Mythbusters’ anchor will call himself ‘The Raping Blob’ as if his deviant actions were a game to him.

Pacchiana’s lawyer, Jordan Merson gave a public statement; “he prolific abuse by Mr. Savage as alleged in the Complaint has caused irreparable damage to my client that she will live with for the rest of her life. Today is the first step in the direction of healing and justice.”

On the contrary, Adam Savage’s lawyer also read his statement on his behalf, which were consisting of a lot of passive-aggressive comments about his sister. Adam, through his statement, informs us that his sister suffers from severe mental problems and has been spreading false and heinous stories about him for financial extortion.

Miranda Pacchiana is Going Against Her Family

One thing Adam Savage said that is true is that this is not the first time Miranda Pacchiana has come out with such allegations too. She came out a few years ago to her family, but instead of support and sympathy, all she got was disdain. Miranda is currently a writer and social worker, working towards the same problem that haunts her.

She currently runs a blog, ‘The Second Wound,’ where she explains her own experience about how instead of being by her side, her family found her at fault for not trying to hide the abuse and not her brother. Regardless, she is standing her ground as she takes the matter to court.

Even their mother, Karen Savage, has publicly taken her brother’s side of the matter.

“It makes me very sad to say this, but my daughter suffers from severe mental health challenges, and it’s devastating that she’s putting Adam and our entire family through this. Adam is a good man, and I support him completely.”
