Gaming world faces one of its biggest #MeToo moments yet

June 30, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

The popular gaming content creation group OfflineTV has removed Federico Michael Gaytan, better known as Fedmyster, in response to allegations of sexual harassment and unwanted touching from two of his housemates.

"Fedmyster," commonly known as Fed, overstepped boundaries, according to Yvonne Ng and Lily "LilyPichu" Ki. LilyPichu also accused former OfflineTV manager Chris Chan of sexual harassment.

Ng, who appears occasionally on OfflineTV and is the house manager, wrote that while she and Fed started as good friends, that changed once he began to touch her without consent when he was drunk.

She said that while living with Fed in the OfflineTV house over the years, he allegedly tried to manipulate her dating life and painted her in a negative light to other friends.

The group held a private intervention with Fed, but ultimately felt the need to go public, Pokimane, Ng and a third member, William "Scarra" Li said in separate statements.

On Sunday she clarified that one of the reasons she was moving out was because of Fed. In her Saturday statement, LilyPichu also accused Chris Chan, her former manager and one of the original four members of OfflineTV, of wrapping his arms and legs around her for hours while his pants were off in 2017.
