Reiko's "Trap Harem" refers to a controversy surrounding allegations that an /r9k/ poster on 4chan associated with the Discord handle Reiko#3333 convinced various young men to take hormone therapy pills and become "traps". According to the allegations, Reiko forced several /r9k/ users into his "harem" by persuading them to share nude pictures of themselves after they had taken the hormone therapy pills to prove they were taking the drug. These were subsequently used to dox and blackmail the victims, although this was never confirmed.


Reiko's campaign dates back to at least March 13th, 2018. It involves spamming /r9k/ encouragement for the men on the board to begin taking hormone therapy and become traps to relieve their sexual frustration, along with a link to a Discord chat run by Reiko and others, which he also encourages the users to join. A thread on /r/drama[1] links to several screenshots[2] of messages from the Discord in which Reiko brags about convincing users to consider hormone therapy and getting users to join his Discord (examples shown below).

The campaign began being exposed after an April 4th, 2018, post by an anonymous user on /r9k/ caught up in the campaign outlined the plot (shown below).

The plot led mods of the board to ban trap posting, but Reiko and others found a way to circumvent the ban.[3] On April 7th, YouTuber Esoteric Poster 1388 posted a video outlining the developing drama, gaining over 22,000 views (shown below).

Included in the video are screenshots which surfaced of the photos Reiko received and used to blackmail the people in them (example shown below). Users on 4chan have also attempted to dox Reiko and claimed to have found his Steam page (screencap shown here). However, none of the doxxes perpetuated on the site had been confirmed and various were later proven false.

Twitter user @WeWuzMetokour[4][5] brought the controversy more mainstream attention by posting screenshots of the drama unfolding on /r9k/. Rumors have also circulated that the /r9k/ user Shuaiby, who committed suicide on live stream, was caught up in the scam, but those rumors were later confirmed to be false.

YouTuber Esoteric Poster 1388 posted two follow-up videos from his initial one which ended up bringing a lot of attention to Reiko. The first video, uploaded on April 11th, was a recording of an hour long voice chat discussion that took place in Reiko's Discord channel which included him allegedly apologizing.[9] However, the second video, uploaded on April 12th, summarized the events on /r9k/ and Reiko's Discord after his initial video, alongside the events after Reiko's apology. In the video (shown below), Esoteric Poster 1388 shows several screencaps from Reiko's Discord channel, including evidence that Reiko has allegedly been spreading false information and faking his public apology.

Additionally, Esoteric Poster 1388 added further information that the attention for Reiko resulted in an unrelated transgender user on Twitter getting doxxed and having had the police at her house at least four times (shown below), alongside another person getting Swatted, and that Discord's admins and the authoritities have been well informed of Reiko's channel.

Threads about the controversy appeared on Kiwi Farms, which included possible pictures of Reiko,[3] and also on Encyclopedia Dramatica's forums,[6] and /r/OutOfTheLoop.[7] According to a different /r/OutOfTheLoop post,[8] alleged personal information about Reiko and the controversy was posted to iFunny, but moderators deleted the content and banned its users, leading to angry iFunny users saying the mods support pedophiles.

“who allegedly convinces members of the boards to take hormone therapy pills and become traps. He allegedly then forces these users to post nudes and pictures of themselves”

I think the most important question here is, “How the hell did that work?”. Is that easy to fool people from 4chan (or at least /r9k/)?
