On June 20 night, micro-influencer Jovan Hill apologized on social media after a user on Twitter outed him for sexual assault. 

In a very lengthy post on Instagram, Jovan wrote, "I’m not trying to remove accountability from myself with this but we were both drunk to the point I wasn’t sure how or why I was in his room the next morning confused I don’t have any recollection of the night, so I’m going to take his word‬ about what happened."

Jovan also wrote that he was not in the state to consent and that he didn't think of them sleeping together was a possibility. He also said that he doesn't have much of a say in the matter as the situation as his memories from the night is blurry. He also addressed his drinking issues while writing, "‪I have no “proof” to defend myself, and I also don’t want to downplay his experiences that night, and regardless I clearly have both a drinking and boundary issue that needs to be addressed."

Jovan reiterated a number of times in his apology that he wasn't sure what transpired the other night. He also wrote that he was apprised of the matter only when the person who's seemingly called Riley, tweeted about the experience. "This is serious to me and I don’t want it to look like I was ignoring it‬. If there’s anything I can do for Riley, you can contact me if you’re comfortable and I am honestly sorry. Sorry again to anyone I’ve ever possibly made feel this way".

The apology came after a Twitter user which we now know as Riley wrote about his experience with Jovan. "Last year Jovan Hill pressured me to get way drunk at a bar and then tried to have sex with me while I was past (sic) out and didn't stop until I said "Stop I'm too drunk" like three times."

Riley is also a rapper and he wrote that he was nervous to say anything about this initially as he felt it was weird to do so. He also alleged that Jovan has sexually assaulted other people in the past.  "I wanna be known for my music and comedy not ruining someone's shit - in fact, I wouldn't care if he has a career still - I just want him to stop," he wrote in the following tweet.
