A woman and mother of two is suing the Disney Channel after she claims a handsy comedian spanked her and kissed her during the audience participation segment.

The woman Kellie Rodriguez filed a suit claiming that comedian Ron Pearson got fresh with her while she was at a live-taping of the show "Good Luck Charlie" last month, according to TMZ. She was there at the taping with her two kids, sister-in-law and nieces.

During the show, she noticed Pearson seemed to be checking her out. He picked her out to do a dance to the Village People's YMCA and that's when the trouble started. As she danced, Pearson came up to her and started spanking her. The lawsuit says, "The unwarranted and unconsented spanking was RELENTLESS and did not cease until [Kellie] physically turned around to stop it." Later on Pearson asked Rodriguez for a kiss, but when she went to give him a peck on the cheek he turned and kissed her on the lips. Rodriguez is claiming the experience was humiliating for her and confusing for her kids who were asking her why she was kissing another man.

Pearson markets himself as a squeaky clean entertainer on his website: "As a clean comedian he can take his act from comedy clubs to Christian comedy or family events."
