You star, comedian Chris D’Elia accused of sexual misconduct

By Tribute on June 17, 2020 | 3 Comments

Actor and comedian Chris D’Elia, 40, is facing several allegations of sexually harassing underage girls.

Tuesday night, Twitter user @girlpowertbh posted several screenshots to the platform of her conversations with D’Elia from 2014. At the time, she was 16 years old. She alleges the comedian, who was 34 at the time, was “grooming” her and says she is not the only underage girl this happened to.

“For the longest time I thought this was just a funny story to tell at parties when I realized what happened isn’t normal and that he was and could still be doing this to younger girls and it’s my job to say something,” Simone tweeted.

After the tweet went viral, several other women have come forward with their own stories about their encounters with D’Elia.

Toronto comic Olivia Stadler says D’Elia “almost immediately” replied to her to “hang out” after she messaged him while he was in town.

Comedian Emma Arnold shared some advice she received about D’Elia.

The Twitter account @SheRatesDogs, which shares messages women receive from men online, had multiple people claim D’Elia either solicited nude photos of them or tried to meet up with them for sex. A lot of those women say they were underage at the time.

D’Elia is best known for his work as a stand-up comedian and he has also appeared in several TV shows and films. He was cast as a pedophile in a 2011 episode of Workaholics and played Joshua “Henderson” Bunter, a comedian and child molester, on the Netflix series You.

As of publication, D’Elia has yet to comment on the allegations. ~Brie Davis

    Thank you girls for bringing this to everyone s attention! You probably saved some very naive, young girls from meeting him in the future. As far as Chris goes, you better go for some help before you end up in prison or a very angry father goes after you! You must be SICK, if you think it is normal to hook up with under age GIRLS!

    what is crazy is that he played a character like this in the Netflix show “You”

    How progressively judgmental of you ladies. It honestly depends on the situation. LITTLE GIRLS do lie on men to get attention or from being turned away due to some weird hurt jealousy. Don’t always assume things. Innocent before proven guilty. I have a friend in prison because his silly ex wife was jealous of someone he was dating and accused him of doing something with their kid. People do a lot of evil CRAP so you shouldn’t be so quick to assume things. 😉
