Subject of Netflix’s ‘The Man With 1000 Kids’ Docuseries Threatens Slander Lawsuit


Meijer maintains he stopped donating sperm in 2019, and takes offense to being called a “serial donor.”

“I dislike the word serial, because every donor is a serial [donor]. It’s just like, a donor helps multiple families. That’s quite common; it’s quite normal,” Meijer said. “So this is really already adding this extreme negative aspect in the documentary, like ‘serial’—serial killer, serial donor.”

In 2017, Meijer was prohibited from donating any more sperm in the Netherlands by the Dutch Society for Obstetrics and Gynecology. However, he allegedly continued donating in other countries.

Meijer says he’s in the process of filing a lawsuit against Netflix. Josh Allot, the director of The Man With 1000 Kids, claims he spoke with Meijer about what would be covered in the series.

“We approached him a number of times to be interviewed and gave him a right to reply at the end,” Allott said. “He refused to comment on any of the allegations in the series.”
