Ansel Elgort has been trending on Twitter after a girl, Gabby, accused the actor of sexual assault. The girl, whose Twitter handle is @itsgabby, has posted on June 19 alleging that the 26-year-old actor sexually assaulted her when she was 17.

Sharing her story, Gabby alleged that she met Elgort after sending him a direct message. ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ actor allegedly replied to her message, and the two met and had sex eventually. In her post, the girl claimed that she was a virgin at the time when she had sex with Elgort. “I was sobbing in pain and I didn’t want to do it,” Gabby wrote in the post.

She also alleged that though she was “sobbing in pain”, the actor continued to have sex with her and said, “we need to break you in”. Continuing further, the girl claimed that Elgort also asked her to send him nude photos of her, and wanted to have a threesome with her and one of her dance friends. Gabby alleged she did not reveal the assault details earlier because Elgort told her they could “ruin his career”.

Explaining why she has now shared the story, Gabby said years after the assault she still experiences PTSD and goes for therapy because of it. She also wanted to let other girls who have had these kinds of experiences know that they are not alone. “It’s a lot for me to post this but I think it’s time I finally talk about my story of me being sexually assaulted. I need to heal and I want others to know they’re not alone,” she wrote.

“He knew what he was doing. I’m not posting this to ‘clout chase’ because I simply don’t care for that. I’m posting this so I can finally heal and I know I’m not alone and he’s done this to other girls,” she added. In her post, Gabby said there was “much more” to her story, but she didn’t want to post it all. She also backed her claims by sharing a photo of herself with Elgort and a picture of a phone that appears to have the first messages the two shared.

Meanwhile, another report has surfaced online alleging Elgort of using a racial slur when he was in high school. The Instagram account @BlackatLaguardia that accepts posts submitted anonymously by former and present students at New York City's LaGuardia High School of Music & Art, posted: “Once I was in class and we were learning about the Niger River. Ansel (Lag's favorite) repeatedly mocked me and said 'N***** River' multiple times. Nothing was ever done about it."

Though the post did not mention the actor’s last name, commenters were quick to point out that Elgort was the student at LaGuardia. “@ansel turns our everything was true #anselisoverparty,” one user commented on the post that has received over 700 likes. “I never liked you @ansel,” another one added.
