A rising YouTuber named ‘Jesus Christ’ has had to deny sexual misconduct allegations made against him, with the accuser now apologizing for his initial claims.

Jesus Christ – whose real legal name is in fact Jesus H. Christ, according to the YouTuber himself – has risen to popularity on the platform, largely thanks to PewDiePie.

Christ would use his role play of the biblical Jesus on a site called ‘fiverr’, where users would pay to have him read a message of their choosing, but he was banned from the platform in 2017, effectively losing his income.

PewDiePie was sympathetic to his situation, and helped boost Jesus’ website and YouTube channel, and helped him out again recently by sending his millions of fans to donate to Jesus to help with legal costs in a custody battle.

This attention from YouTube’s biggest channel has helped Jesus amass over 900,000 subscribers, which caused a smaller YouTuber, ‘The God of Cringe’ to want to expose Jesus for ‘who he really is’.

On January 8, this YouTuber uploaded a video accusing Jesus of touching him inappropriately at a VidCon convention and filming the encounter. He also believes Jesus may now be using the video for sexual gratification.

However, in responding to the claim, Jesus provided the footage in question, which exposed the accuser’s claims of being largely false, with a much different version of events shown in the footage.

The God of Cringe’s original video has received over 21,000 dislikes with only 321 likes, prompting him to make a follow up video apologizing for his claims.

“I want to apologize if I got anything wrong on my previous video. I was solely relying on my memory from that period in time, and as we all know, memories do fade. Since you had the actual video where you drew on my nipple, and I never had it, I really had nothing to refer to.” 

Jesus has suggested that his accuser made up the allegations in an attempt to gain ‘clout’, or simply more attention and views on YouTube.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
