Gregory ‘Onision’ Jackson has been banned from crowdfunding membership site Patreon after allegedly doxxing a fellowing YouTuber on Twitter.

On Sunday, November 24, Onision tweeted out screenshots of private messages allegedly between himself and Billie Dawn Webb, who recently appeared on Chris Hansen’s YouTube channel claiming he had harassed her.

According to reports, one of those screenshots include Webb’s full telephone number, prompting Patreon to disable his account which had over 500 patrons, no longer allowing him to receive monetary support from his audience on the platform.

Onision has been banned from Patreon for alleged doxxing.

In a statement to The Verge, a Patreon spokesperson confirmed that Onisions actions constituted doxxing, which was a direct violation of the company’s bullying and harrassment rules, leading to his removal from the site, even though the images weren’t posted on the platform.

The company has a strict “no doxxing” policy no matter where the action takes place, explaining that they don’t allow “Patreon to fund the practice of doxxing,” and that any creator caught in the act of doxxing may be banned.

“Simply put, doxxing is a way that people try to hurt each other on the internet,” a blog post from the company reads. “In those rare circumstances that a Patreon creator participates in doxxing, we take a strong stance against it because we know the potential harm it causes.”

Twitter have yet to ban the YouTuber, stating that the screenshots do not violate their terms of service, but any that includes a phone number would be grounds for punishment if they were reported to them.

When reached for comment by The Verge, Onision said that the screenshots were taken from a relationship he had with Webb in 2016 to express how sad he was that it didn’t work out, and was confused as to why he was punished by Patreon.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”

 

After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
