Adam22 Pedophilia and Rape Allegations refers to allegations that Adam22, host of the No Jumper podcast, began dating a Canadian girl named Desiree Elyda when she was 16 years old, admitted to it in a blog post in which he also shared her nudes, then allegedly sexually assaulted her when she was 19, as well as accusations that Adam22 hooked up with 16-year-old girls while on tour with Lil Pump. Adam22 denied the accusations made by Elyda in 2018. In March 2023, the "predator catching" page OfficialPervBusters confronted Adam22 about the allegations while filming an episode of the podcast and Adam kicked them off the show, renewing interest in the controversy.
In March 2006, Adam22 hosted an "ask me anything" on the 2+2 forums in which he answered questions about his sexual history and the girls he's slept with. In one comment, he admits to sleeping with a 17-year-old girl when he was 22 (shown below, left). In another, he says "15 is a good age" after someone criticizes him for messaging a girl who looks "14 or 15" to the commenter (shown below, right).
On July 4th, 2017, @Adam22 tweeted, "There's an account saying that I fucked a 16-year-old 10 years ago when I was 23 but actually she was 19 don't listen to it," garnering over 690 likes in six years (shown below).
On March 20th, 2018, Twitter user @ConorTripler posted a now-deleted thread on Twitter consisting of screenshots including alleged evidence that Adam22 had a relationship with a girl when she was 16 and he was in his 20s, along with accusations that he sexually assaulted her. The thread also includes allegations against his co-host Lil House Phone and a link to the 2+2 forum AMA (the screenshots were not archived). On March 22nd, one of Adam's accusers, Desiree Elyda, then made a post to TheB9 forums directly alleging that Adam abused her, calling him a "serial sexual predator" (shown below).
The allegations came right around the time that Adam22 signed a deal with Atlantic Records to launch his production company No Jumper Records.
On March 23rd, 2018, @Adam22 tweeted a statement claiming that Elyda has "no evidence" to back up her claims and that he has emails that make the claims seem "absurd" (shown below).
On March 26th, Twitter user @helen posted screenshots of the purported victim's statement, along with a screenshot from an old blog post allegedly written by Adam22 titled "The Desiree Story Part 1" in which he seemingly admits to dating Elyda when she was 16 and he was 22, writing, "If statutory rape is wrong I didn't wanna be right," as well as posting a nude image of Desiree, although her age at the time the photo was taken is unknown and Adam writes that she's "18 or 19" in "most of the pics here" (shown below).
Now any of the math-inclined out there are probably reading this and thinking something like 'she's 19 now, you were 23 then, how old was she then?' Well she was 16, but come on man, look at her. She's 18 or 19 in most of the pics here but she didn't look much different at all then. If statutory rape is wrong I didn't wanna be right.
That day, March 26th, 2018, @Adam22 then posted several tweets about the situation. In the first tweet, he writes, "It’s fucking sad how all it takes is a completely fabricated story from 10+ years ago to fool so many people. Ive got all these old emails from her about our relationship and 0 mention abuse or rape."
In the second set of tweets, he shares emails from Elyda, allegedly sent to him after the blog post about their relationship, in which she talks cordially with him and never accuses him of rape (shown below, top and bottom). About the first email he writes, "notice how there's no mention of abuse or rape? does this sound like someone who was in an abusive relationship?" and the second, "doesn't this sound dramatically different from the account of our relationship she tells now? weird how the rape/abuse narrative took 10 years."
On March 30th, Pitchfork published an article in which it talked with two alleged victims of Adam22, a girl named "D" (purportedly Desiree) and a second nameless reported victim who goes by "Jane," who describes an incident where Adam allegedly raped her. She also claimed that years after the incident, Adam discussed it online on a forum and in a blog post titled, "The Time a Girl Accused Me of Rape," and shared photos and details of the situation.
On March 15th, 2023, Instagram influencers and predator catchers officialpervbusters posted several videos of himself on an unreleased episode of the No Jumper podcast in which he brings up Adam22's allegations to the host.
In the second video, Adam comes in and asks what the problem is and officialpervbusters says he'd be a "hypocrite" if he didn't ask about it. Adam claims that "the article" said she was 19 when he met the victim and that he only talked on the phone with her when she was 16, not realizing her age. Adam eventually kicked officialpervbusters out for "spreading lies" on his platform.
A compilation of the videos was posted by YouTuber noir that day, garnering over 49,000 views in two days (shown below).
On March 16th, a video of rapper Lil Pump live on Instagram, who has filmed several videos with Adam22 in the past, was posted to Twitter in which Lil Pump accuses Adam22 of sleeping with 16-year-old girls when he was in his 20s (shown below).
Co-Hosts Leave No Jumper Podcast
On March 17th, 2023, reports that No Jumper co-hosts AD, T-Rell and DoKnow left the show, although it is unclear why some members left. AD may have chosen to leave after he disagreed with Adam22 interviewing Richard Spencer, who AD stated he believes is a white supremacist. T-Rell announced he was leaving on a stream with DJ Akademiks in which he claims he wants to start his own show (shown below).
Interview With Joe Budden
On March 16th, 2023, Joe Budden interviewed Adam22 on his Amp show, which was reuploaded to the STREETSTEA YouTube channel that day (shown below). The first 30 minutes are spent discussing the co-hosts leaving. At around the 31-minute mark, Budden asks Adam22 about the pedophilia allegations and says he had a problem with Adam telling Perv Busters they were "spreading lies."
Adam22 then denies the allegations, saying he learned she was 16 on the phone, acknowledged 16 is the age of consent in Canada but not the U.S. and claims he did not talk with her after that until they hooked up years later when she was 19. Adam also says he made edgy jokes about the controversy in his blog post about the situation.
Budden accuses Adam22 of "waiting for the girl" to reach the age of 19. Adam says he only hooked up with her years later because he saw her in his "recommended friends" on Facebook.
Adam22 Addresses Allegations
On March 28th, 2023, Adam22 addressed the allegations on YouToube during an episode of No Jumper. He said that he had nothing to add after already addressing the allegations in 2018. He also discusses his desire to make the content on the channel less drama focused.
On March 15th, 2023, DJ Akademiks reacted to the officialpervbusters videos, garnering over 83,000 views in one day on the King Akademics YouTube channel (shown below).
On the same day, a video compiling Adam22's perceived "rapiest moments" started spreading around Twitter (shown below).
