Why Is 'The Tall Knight' Being Accused Of Scamming His Fans?

On February 20th, the Tall Knight, a TikToker who constantly wears a knight crusader's helmet and makes positive content, posted a video where he claims he was kicked from his home and is now homeless. In the video, he says he has no other choice but to ask for help from his viewers. Later that night, he posted a video revealing that viewers sent him over $14,000 in support of his struggle.

Two days later, Tall Knight's brother-in-law, a Christian TikToker named @theothodoxmainer, posted a video claiming Tall Knight had been staying with him, his wife Savannah (Tall Knight's sister) and his kids, showing Tall Knight's room, helmet and sword for proof.

In the video, Othodox Mainer claims that he told Tall Knight to leave by March 1st after Tall Knight invited his out-of-state girlfriend to stay at the house without telling him. Othodox and his wife, who happens to be Tall Knight's sister, also caught Tall Knight and his girlfriend hooking up in their room, which they deemed "not Christian" and inappropriate while the kids were in the house. This was the main reason for evicting him.

Othodox claims that Tall Knight was never homeless since he could have stayed there until March 1st and believes he had more money than he let on since he was able to fly his girlfriend out to visit. The original video by Othodox was deleted, but was reuploaded and can be seen below.

Did Tall Knight Really Scam His Viewers?

Since @theothodoxmainer's video was posted, some TikTokers, especially those who donated, have been accusing Tall Knight of being a scammer. However, Tall Knight recently pushed back against these claims on his Discord server, revealing what he sees as hypocrisy from Othodox and his sister Savannah.

According to the Discord messages, Tall Knight was kicked out for hooking up with his girlfriend in their room. However, he claims that Othodox and Savannah hook up every night whether the kids are there or not. He even claims they once hooked up in the living room while he and a friend were playing a board game and that Othodox and Savannah leave their "toys" in the sink sometimes.

After airing out some dirt about his sister and claiming she did know he had a girlfriend coming to visit despite Othodox's claims, Tall Knight confirms that she told them to leave after walking in on them hooking up. He thought it was a joke at first but she later confirmed it wasn't, despite Tall Knight telling her it would make him homeless. She allegedly called his girlfriend names.

Tall Knight grabbed his girlfriend's suitcase, left the house and recorded the video asking for help at around 2:00 AM, not posting it until the next day. It wasn't until that day that Othodox texted him telling him he had until March 1st to leave. Although he said Tall Knight could stay until then, he also wrote that his girlfriend could not.

Tall Knight writes that there was "no way" he was staying there after that, and posted the video asking for help and got the $14,000 from his followers. He insists he did not scam his followers and even provides a screenshot of his alleged bank account balance, showing he had around $400 before the donations.

Tall Knight Yesterday at 1:43 PM Hello! @everyone It's come to my attention that my old hyper-religious, hypocritical roommates have made a last ditch effort to make my life miserable He goes by something like OrthadoxMainer on tiktok. Feel free to go watch his video for context. He goes on to grab my stuff and say things along the lines of "he lived here for free” (lie) "he was given several warnings" (another lie) “hes scamming you for money" (also lie.) So, if you want the truth, if you genuinely want to know what really happened, please be patient. Open minded. And allow me to speak my side (edited) 5 So here is a quick run down of all the events to at took place that night. I'm leaving no details out, which will humiliate me and make me feel awful, but it's only fair. I'll do my best to be brief, I don't want to take too much of your time. And I'm addressing this on discord because I don't want to use my biggest platform (tiktok) just to talk about lies and rumors 24 BUT ANYWAY That weekend, Friday, February 17th, 2023 I had used my earnings from tiktok to fly my LDR (long distance relationship) girlfriend up to Maine to meet we had been talking for about a month and wanted to see if we were compatible in person (edited) My best friend drove me an hour down to the airport (cause I don't have a license to pick her up She was amazing... everything I'd hoped for and more So we headed back home to the apartment (of which I was paying $450 a month for one bedroom the size of a closet) (edited) 215 Tall Knight Yesterday at 1:51 PM Now, to be clear, my older sister had walked in on my and my gf the night before, calling on discord. She needed me to do the usual favor of escorting her and her child to his house with our grandparents because my sister is not allowed around minors without adult supervision.

Since then, Othodox has deleted his video on the matter and another TikToker who accused Tall Knight of scamming has apologized for thinking so. Tall Knight also claims that he's refunding hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of donations that have been coming in over the past few days to further prove his innocence.
