I don’t tend to write about stories going on in the news but this sickened me to the core. Austin Jones is a 24 year old Canadian you tube star, known for singing covers of popular songs he has half a million followers.
It has recently come to light that he has been using his online presence to convince young girls to send him explicit photos and videos. Disgusting.
He was manipulating these poor girls with phrases like “I thought you were my biggest fan” and telling the girls they needed to prove themselves to him by sending what ever he asked. Even asking them to talk about their age during the videos.
Even typing this is making me super uncomfortable.
It finally came to light what had been going on after he asked a young girl to send a video of her twirking in front of the camera, when she said she didn’t know how he actually SEND HER A VIDEO of himself twirking showing her how to do it. At the end of the video he smiles and says “your turn.” This was sick to watch knowing his intent behind it.
She then went on to expose messages between them as she wasn’t comfortable with what he was asking her to do. The clever clever girl had taken screen shots. I think she’s amazing bringing this to light and not letting scum like him think he’s in control.
From what I have read he will be getting a maximum of 15 years in prison. Personally I think he deserves more.
He took advantage of his social media fame, instead of using his exposure for good…. he used it to groom young girls.
More girls that were targeting are coming forward exposing him and sharing screen shots. I won’t be posting any on here as they make my stomach turn and are pretty graphic but there are hundreds of YouTube videos you can watch that include more evidence.
One look at this guy you know he’s not going to do well in prison, and I couldn’t be happier about that.
