Stand-up comedian, actor, writer, and podcast host, Chris D’Elia is known for playing Henderson in the Netflix thriller series 'You' and Kenny on ABC's 'The Good Doctor'. Recently, he came under the scanner on social media when a string of sexual misconduct accusations were hurled at him.

Screenshots of his alleged conversations started floating around on Twitter where several girls said he allegedly propositioned them. It started when a Twitter user posted a tweet saying, "I still can’t believe Netflix cast Chris D’elia as the pedophile in Season 2 of “You” like the literal IRONY." On the same thread, his accuser posted screengrabs from her emails, where he had asked her to "send a pic" to which she sent a panda's photo. In another screenshot, the message read: "Do you wanna meet up tonight?" 

"Imagine being 16 and being groomed by a stand-up comedian twice ur age and the only reason you never met up and never got physically m*lested was because u had just gotten a boyfriend ur own age," she wrote. "For the longest time I thought it was embarrassing for ME that I was interacting with this older man but he was the one who DM’d me on twitter and was the one who was twice my age and was the one that used the power imbalance between us to his advantage so f*ck Chris D’elia," she added.

Moreover, she revealed that she was "not the only one". I am also definitely not the only underage girl he did this too. Just an FYI," her tweet read and said, "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." She then posted, "F**k you @chrisdelia and also @netflix I highly doubt casting this creep as a pedophile was a coincidence. At least I got to see him fake die."

No sooner did she post it, a set of tweets started pouring in from the other girls who may have gone through a similar experience. "This is crazy bc I’ve literally had this sent to me about Chris Delia as well," one tweet read with a screenshot of a private chat. It allegedly accused the comedian of exposing himself: "Fun fact about Chris D'elia: When he stayed at my hotel two years ago, he called for help with his AC unit and then exposed himself to the woman who went to help. Then he tried to get her to come back to the room." 

With all the support that came her way, the Twitter user posted, "I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has been so kind to me about all of this. I’m glad that other girls are finding the strength to speak up as well. my notifs are uncontrollable but just know that I’m very grateful."

The allegations left the Twitter world in deep shock. "This Chris D'Elia shit is wild, but I guess it's always the first person you suspect," screenwriter Django Gold wrote. Soon, the viral tweets sparked fury and D'Elia was slammed. "Do y’all remember how Chris D’elia played a Child Predator on Workaholics as well?" one posted and another wrote, "I’ve always had a weird feeling that Chris Delia is a creep. No more Chris D’elia get rid of Chris D’elia." One said, "Chris D'Elia played a pedophile on both Workaholics and You. Now he's being exposed on twitter as one. He typecast himself as himself."

Another Twitter user posted, "On the Chris D’elia situation: why is it so hard for men to not be trash? why can’t y’all just wake up, eat breakfast, read the news, go to work, resist the urge to harass women, go to sleep, repeat? a new celebrity gets exposed every week and that’s just the guys we hear about." D'Elia  is also known for his roles as Alex Miller on NBC's 'Whitney' and Danny Burton on NBC's 'Undateable'.

"I had a friend that loved Chris D’elia and would show me his videos that I would kinda half-a** chuckle at. Come to think of it, every time I saw him he’d always have some significantly younger girl w/ him that he was clearly preying on. Anyway, I don't hang out with that dude anymore," one tweet read. Another woman posted a long thread about him. "Long story short he said he just really wanted me to come to the show and started giving off weird vibes. After several messages, I was very uncomfortable. He was pushy."

"16-year-olds love Justin Bieber, Justin Bieber loves Chris D’Elia, and Chris D’Elia loves sixteen-year-olds. Talk about a messy triangle," one tweet read and another said, "I’m sure it’s awful to learn your favorite comedian has been preying on underage girls, but love yourself enough to not publicly claim Chris D’Elia as your favorite comedian." While the tweets have led to major criticism, there is no legal action taken against him.
