Twitch streamer MrConRem has returned to Twitter with a new apology for grooming allegations made against him in December 2020, saying that he will be returning to streaming “soon.”
MrConRem is a streamer known for playing Fortnite on Twitch, with a follower base of just under 200,000.
In December 2020, the streamer was accused of grooming underage girls, after screenshots emerged online of a 17-year-old girl saying she had sent him pictures of herself for money. In the screenshots, the individual says that MrConRem is 22 years old, but the leaker claims he’s actually 24.
Another screenshot showed an unnamed person allege that the streamer sent her inappropriate messages despite the fact that her age was listed in her bio as 17.

Shortly after, MrConRem responded to the situation with a TwitLonger post, in which he said, “I was told she was 18,” calling it a “mistake.” He also added that he’s “so sorry to those who were affected.” He appeared to deactivate his account after posting the TwitLonger.
