The Tall Knight or The_Tall_Knight (real name Elijah Brann) is a TikToker known for wearing a knight crusader helmet and his positive, motivational, gaming and comedy content, including videos about his personal life. Tall Knight gained a significant following on TikTok throughout 2021 and 2022 on his original account @the_average_tall_knight before it was permanently banned. He restarted in March 2022 and eventually surpassed his original follower count. In February 2023, Tall Knight posted a video asking for help from his community, claiming he was kicked from his home and about to be homeless, resulting in his followers sending him over $14,000 USD. Following the donations, TikToker @othodoxmainer, whose house Tall Knight was living in, accused him of allegedly scamming fans and lying about being homeless, which Tall Knight denied.


On March 31st, 2022, TikToker[1] @the_tall_knight posted a video sharing that his old account, @the_average_tall_knight had been permanently banned. On April 3rd, he posted a video about how he planned to get them all back in a month, garnering over 250,000 views in a year (shown below).

He continued posting comedy content and videos about his personal life over the following months, some gaining millions of views. On June 29th, he posted a video to TikTok[2] that gained over 3.3 million views in eight months (shown below, left). On December 11th, he posted a video to TIkTok[3] revealing he'd been in a mental facility and was suicidal, but instead of ending his life decided to become the "strongest motherfucker in his bloodline," garnering over 777,000 views in two months (shown below, right).

Kicked From House, Homelessness, Scam Accusations

On February 20th, 2023, TikToker[5] @the_tall_knight posted a video in which he states that he just got kicked out of his house and that he was homeless. He claims that he doesn't have much money in the bank and won't get his payment from TikTok until the end of the month, calling his request for help "pathetic." The video gained over 6.5 million views in four days (shown below).

@the_tall_knight ($TheAverageTallKnight) I’m so scared, idk what I’m gonna do, please help #tallknight #the_tall_knight #homeless #apartment #tiktok #positivity #fanbase #fakesword ♬ original sound – Tall Knight

Later that night, Tall Knight then posted a video to TikTok[6] revealing that he had been sent over $14,000 by his followers (shown below, left). Two days later, he posted another video to TikTok[7] sharing that he is staying in a hotel while looking for an apartment (shown below, right).

@the_tall_knight I swear I’m going to dedicate my life to making content that can maybe give you guys a fraction of the joy that you’ve brought me πŸ’πŸ˜­ #tallknight #the_tall_knight #update #hotel #homeless #positivity ♬ original sound – they_luv_tony:)

That day, Christian TikToker[8] @othodoxmainer, who was Tall Knight's roommate and the owner of the house he was staying in before he was kicked out, posted a video accusing Tall Knight of scamming his followers. In the video, he shows Tall Knight's room, sword and helmet for proof. The TikToker claims that he let Tall Knight live in his house with himself, his wife and his kids since he was 18 under the understanding that he would be a "normal house guest."

According to the post, Othodoxmainer had a problem with Tall Knight when he flew his out-of-state girlfriend to visit and stay with him in the house without asking. His wife purportedly came home one day and saw Tall Knight and his girlfriend being "very intimate" and displaying "non-Christian values." He told Tall Knight he had until March 1st to start looking for a new home and that he wasn't kicked out or homeless at the time he made his video. At the end of the video, @othodoxmainer showed supposed texts in which Tall Knight says he refuses to come back to the home through March 1st, choosing to stay in a hotel instead (video now deleted).

On March 23rd, Tall Knight then posted a video to TikTok[9] responding to the accusations. He calls the claims by @othodoxmainer "rumors and accusations" and tells viewers to visit his Discord for the full story (shown below).

@the_tall_knight #stitch with @musclepilledv2 I have never and will never betray this invaluable trust I’ve been given from you guys. You mean too much to me. #the_tall_knight #tallknight #update #homeless #scammer #positivity ♬ Blade Runner 2049 – Synthwave Goose

On his Discord (screenshots shown below), he explains that the house he was staying at belongs to his sister Savannah and brother-in-law (@othodoxmainer). He admits that he did fly his girlfriend out to visit, then claims that Savannah walked in on the two of them talking on Discord the night before, so she knew his girlfriend was coming over. After Tall Knight's girlfriend arrived, Savannah caught them cuddling and was purportedly mad. He reveals that Savannah, a childcare provider, is currently not allowed around minors without supervision due to an incident where a child suffered a brain injury in her care,[10] also stating she cut off contact with her other brother because he voted for Biden and their sister for not being straight.

Tall Knight then claims that Savannah barged in on him and his girlfriend having sex in their room and told them to leave. He then states that she and @othodoxmainer have sex every day whether the children are home or not, even claiming they had sex in the living room once while he was there, that they leave sex toys in the kitchen sink and that @othodoxmainer purportedly likes to get pegged.

He thought Savannah was joking about kicking him out at first but then realized she wasn't, also adding that she allegedly called his girlfriend a whore. Tall Knight grabbed her suitcase and some things, went outside and recorded the video asking for help from his followers, posting it the next day. On that same day, he claims @othodoxmainer texted him offering to let him stay until March for the first time, but there was no way he was staying there after the confrontation. Tall Knight posts a link to a screenshot[11] claiming he only had $470 in his bank account before the donations (full Discord screenshots shown below, left to right).

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) β€œhes 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. (edited) (There was incident about 2 years ago at a daycare she used to own which resulted in a baby being put into a coma because of what she did. https://www.newscentermaine.com/amp/article/news/crime/maine-child-care- provider-charged-after-19-month-old-suffered-brain-injury-in-her-care-makes-first- court-appearance/97-7d6b170c-f590-405d-a8af-69a988cac16b) (edited) 156 13 So, Savannah (my sister) was in fact aware I was going to have a girl over. Fast forward to the next day Me and this perfect girl are cuddling in my bed hehe, corny I know, but it was the loveliest thing ever Shortly after, Savannah gets home from work, and is outraged that I betrayed her trust by having a girl over (edited) 126 292 5 6 She storms off, and then about an hour later, she comes back and starts interrogating my poor girlfriend with questions 127 71 W 46 H 46 "What's your name?
