Allegations

The Kevin Leonardo Allegations refers to a series of allegations leveled at content creator Kevin Leonardo for his Discord server, which purportedly allowed minors to discuss sexual and NSFW topics without significant moderation and for claims that he roleplayed as a child victim on Epstein's island, among other problematic claims, including claims that he has had sexual interactions with his cat. Leonardo gained viral fame in June 2023 for his "Nair video," an educational video in which he goes full frontal nude to show viewers how to use Nair on their posteriors to remove hair. The allegations against Leonardo were first made in August 2023, becoming more widely known in early 2024 after a YouTube posted an expose video on Leonardo. The 18+ Discord channel has since purportedly been removed from the server.

Online Presence

In June 2023, following the viral Nair video, fan pages dedicated to Leonardo began appearing on TikTok. Most notably, TikToker[11] @kevinleonardo1fan began posting comedic highlights from Leonardo's TikTok live streams on June 26th, 2023 to hundreds of thousands of views. In many of the clips, Leonardo picks his preference between Taylor Swift and a potentially controversial topic or event, such as Pride Month or September 11th. This stems from a prior live on Leonardo's Taylor Swift TikTok account where he claims that Taylor Swift's album 1989 deserved to with the Grammy in 2016 over Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly.

On June 27th, the TikToker[12] posted a clip of Leonardo picking Taylor Swift over a BLM protest, garnering over 413,000 views in three days (shown below, left). On June 29th, the TikToker[13] uploaded a similar video where Leonardo gives his opinions on various topics, garnering over 630,000 views in a day (shown below, right).
