Following a number of allegations being levied against YouTuber CallMeCarson, accusing him of grooming younger fans and being inappropriate with them, former Lunch Club member Charlie ‘Slimecicle’ Dalgleish has revealed he reported Carson to federal law enforcement.
Formerly in YouTube group Lunch Club with Carson, Slimcicle left suddenly in early 2020, distancing himself from the group and, more importantly, Carson.
Now, on January 5, 2021, allegations have been made by fans of Carson about him grooming them when they were younger, as well as other former Lunch Club members saying that he admitted to them that “he had f***ed underage girls.”
While Carson has yet to respond to the claims being made, they have been bolstered once again by a former friend, with Slimecicle now releasing his own statement about the ordeal.
Just a few hours after news started to break across social media, Dalgleish released his statement, saying that he has already reported Carson to the police after he admitted to exchanging inappropriate messages with a girl he “believed to be 17.”
“In an early 2020 phone call, Carson told all the Lunch Club members and our group manager that he had exchanged nudes with an unnamed girl he believed to be 17,” the statement reads. “I immediately reported this information to federal law enforcement, cut all ties to Carson, and withdrew completely from Lunch Club.”
At the end of the statement, Slimecicle reveals that the reason he hasn’t spoken out before was to protect the victim, saying that he “took every step to protect the unnamed victim and report the information I had to authorities.”

Obviously, these allegations and the involvement of federal law have been building for around a year, if not more, at the time of writing, despite news only breaking now.
How this pans out for Carson and his former Lunch Club friends remains to be seen, though it’s not looking good for the YouTuber. He has yet to respond to any of the allegations made against him from the Lunch Club members or victims.
