Overview

Vinesauce Vinny Sexual Misconduct Allegations refers to four anonymous accusations of sexual manipulation and abuse of power against streamer Vinesauce Vinny towards his fans. Among the allegations is a claim that Vinny knowingly passed HPV to a fan and worked to keep his sexual encounters secret. While the allegations spread on social media, some found discrepancies in the allegations which led to some doubt of their validity. Vinny denied the allegations in a stream and said he is looking into legal counsel. Defenders of Vinny started the "#IStandWithVinny" hashtag to voice their belief in Vinny's innocence.

Background

On April 2nd, 2021, Twitter account @VS_experiences[1] launched with a post linking to a 39-page Google Document[2] featuring four stories of alleged sexual experiences with Vinesauce Vinny. The stories detail four allegations of how Vinny messaged fans on social media, initiated sexual encounters, and behaved manipulatively in order to keep the relationships secret. One accuser details how Vinny knowingly initiated unprotected sex with her and gave her HPV. The Google Document contains an audio recording allegedly of Vinny talking to the accuser about their sexual relationship.

Developments

After the tweet was posted, it was retweeted by several notable content creators, including @LordMandalore and @GeeFrodo. This was suspicious, as the @VS_experiences account was brand new, which caused people to assume those retweeting the story were related to the allegations in some way. Both @LordMandalore[3] and @GeeFrodo[4] ultimately removed their retweets and posted statements admitting they retweeted it because an anonymous friend asked them to.


Mandalore ... @Lord_Mandalore I know the last day or so has seemed out of the blue for me, so I wrote up what happened on my end. TL;DR: I'm an idiot who shouldn't have retweeted anything without better insight and I'm sorry for any inadvertent damage I did. ich streams in general, but Vinny was one I would see on and off ents or messages publicly displayed on his playthroughs of slavja friend told me the full situation with one of the victims, along with are proving one of the more harrowing claims about disease.

In the accusation, Person #4 says she contacted someone Vinny was talking to, potentially romantically, to warn her of his behavior. Twitter user @actuallylichpit[5] claimed to have been this person and argued that Person #4's account of the situation was inaccurate.


lichpit @actuallylichpit ... Hi, I'm the woman that Person #4 got a DM from and then claims I blocked her. That's not what happened and I literally screenshot every single tweet of our exchange because I felt emotionally manipulated by her.

On April 4th, 2021, Vinny streamed a pre-recorded statement about the allegations, denying them and saying they misrepresented him. He stated he believed the accusers are attempting to harm him and his career. He further stated he was going to look into legal counsel about how to move forward (shown below).



Vinny's statement led to the hashtag #IStandWithVinny[6] to trend, as people rallied to his defense, with users sharing fan art alongside the hashtag (examples[7][8] shown below).

This feels like proof that even when someone tries to astroturf a harassment accusation campaign that it only works if there's any degree of truth to the situation. Nobody bought this. From what I saw browsing the hashtag even early on, there only seemed to be a small group of people who believed the bullshit claims.

This seems more like a cautionary tale about how insular the youtuber community is, where one person who knows a bunch of people and who is decently trusted can tell them to tweet something obviously factually inaccurate without people pushing back until it hits the public.

Plenty of the people who signal boosted this have tweeted out that they were told to do so by a close friend, which tells me that someone in the community wanted to take out Vinny
