Actor and Comedian Chris D’Elia has been accused of sexually harassing underage girls, according to Newsweek [WARNING: Language]:
On Tuesday, a Twitter user named Simoné, who uses the handle @girlpowertbh started a thread in which she shared screenshots of DM conversations alleging to be between herself and D’Elia when she was 16-year-old in 2014.
She wrote: “for the longest time i thought it was embarrassing for ME that i was interacting with this older man but he was the one who DM’d me on twitter and was the one who was twice my age and was the one that used the power imbalance between us to his advantage so f*** chris d’elia.”
Another tweet by @girlpowertbh reads: “i am also definitely not the only underage girl he did this too. just an FYI.” Adding: “for the longest time i thought this was just a funny story to tell at parties when i realized what happened isn’t normal and that he was and could still be doing this to younger girls and it’s my job to say something.”
Another Twitter user accused D’Elia of soliciting compromising photos of another underage girl [WARNING: Langauge]:
