Several such screenshots began doing rounds on the internet accusing Vinny of sexual misconduct. But many users on the internet felt that these screenshots were fake and photoshopped, and came to Vinny's defense and pointed out the glaring errors in these screenshots.

A user pointed out how one of the screenshots from an alleged mail sent by Vinny featured the wrong display picture of the accused. "I don't watch Vinesauce anymore but I know for a fact no human being would ever say "creeperinos" in any context. I call bullsh*t, Vinny is innocent. also thats not his email nor is it his profile picture."

Another user too shared the same above screenshot and pointed out that Vinny only responded to his mails on Sundays, and the alleged mail was sent on a Friday. "One thing about this Vinny Vinesauce fake email that conclusively makes it fake - March 16 2018 was a Friday. Vinny has only done emails on Sunday since 2012," wrote a user.

 



 

 

"As someone whose been with @VinnyVinesauce since the beginning, lets debunk this 1. Vinny never refers to himself as "Vinesauce" He's always been open with his first name. 2. Vinesauce has had the same logo from the start. Its not that. 3. The "bobs" meme started late 2019. (+)," declared a supported of Vinny.

 



 

 

Several users were left feeling very frustrated by the allegations against the gaming streamer. A user commented, "This Vinny sh*t is disgusting. Why would anyone think its ok to frame someone of sexual assault. All it does is invalidate actual victims. Get your sh*t together. https://pic.twitter.com/p4l6hXCLc8." Another user echoed similar thoughts with, "To anyone who genuinely believes the accusations levied against Vinesauce's Vinny, press Control+Shift+I on your keyboard. Fabricating emails is extremely easy."

 



 

 



 

 

Currently all these screenshots are being treated as fake until any further proof is produced.
