Vinny Vinesauce will be seeking legal advice after misconduct allegations surfaced. The YouTuber/Twitch streamer was accused of manipulating and lying to his fans into a sexual relationship.
Vinny is a popular Zelda streamer with over 500,000 followers on Twitch, for the better part of his streaming career, he steered clear of any drama whatsoever. However, on April 3rd, a Tweet went viral accusing him of lying and manipulating his fans into a sexual relationship, later forcing them to keep quiet.
The anonymously published statement lacked evidence to back the accusation, thus it didn’t take long for his fans to cancel the statement. Vinny was quick to break his silence and informed that he might take legal action against the publication.
“I’m not sure why they would post this other than to hurt me or damage my career,” said Vinny. “I have spoken to a lawyer and I am going to continue having contact with the lawyer in figuring out any particular legal action.” “I know I am who I am and I know I didn’t do anything wrong, and because of that I am not going into any more details publicly,“ he added.
“The situation is rough and I don’t know if I will be able to stream for a while. I definitely need some time and I need to take stock of who I am and where I am. “If I figure it out and if I am comfortable, I will be back. Until then, please respect me and my privacy and especially the privacy of others,” announced Vinny. The break is quite needed and he might not be able to enjoy his streams until the issue is resolved.
