Allegations of sexual assault are nothing to take lightly, and when those accusations are made against fixtures in pop culture, things can get very public and very messy, very fast. That's what happened this week when popular YouTuber Austin McBroom of the Ace Family was accused of brutally raping a friend of beauty vlogger Cole Carrigan. The situation has continued to grow, with both sides gearing up with lawyers and ready to take action, and an intense game of "he said, she said" continues.
Trigger warning: Some of the ahead allegations may be extremely disturbing.
On Tuesday, beauty vlogger Cole Carrigan released a video alleging that YouTuber Austin McBroom raped his friend in a Miami hotel.
In a graphic and detailed video, Carrigan alleged that his friend was brutally raped by McBroom and members of his team, including his father, during a scheduled vacation in Miami. Providing what he claims are receipts to back up the story, Carrigan posted alleged text messages between McBroom and the said victim, photos of the alleged aftermath of the assault, which included a horrific photo of blood covering a hotel bed comforter, and even spoke to the alleged victim while filming.
