The YouTuber Colleen Ballinger, better known by her stage name Miranda Sings, became the topic of conversation on Twitter overnight.
Allegedly, the internet star harassed, bullied, and s*xually pursued her underage followers.
Adam McIntyre, a former fan of Miranda Sings, published a video on YouTube in which he called out the viral content producer Miranda Ballinger.
In the video, Adam McIntyre made alarming charges against Miranda Ballinger.
The video, which has received more than 1.7 million views in the past three years and is titled “colleen balinger, stop lying,” shows McIntyre clearing the air after he was ‘cancelled’ by followers of Miranda Sings for attempting to expose her in a previous video.
McIntyre describes his unhealthy and destructive relationship with Ballinger, who was 30 years old at the time.
McIntyre describes Ballinger as being toxic and manipulative.
However, the story never goes away because, three years later, new allegations are being brought forth as more victims come out in solidarity with McIntyre and others who were outed by Ballinger.
McIntyre further claims that the YouTuber would love to bomb him with praise and encouragement, pressuring him into operating the YouTuber’s social media accounts without compensation or accreditation.
It was the last straw for McIntyre, and he decided to sever their friendship.
Since these charges came to light, several people who claim to have been Miranda Sings fans in the past have expressed regret to McIntyre for how he was treated in 2020.
Screenshots collected from group chats in which Ballinger participated reveal her engaging in inappropriate behavior against minors by asking them questions about s*xuality, genitalia, and other sensitive issues.
In a manner analogous to how she behaved toward McIntyre, she is accused of influencing followers into performing free favors to bolster her credibility.
Twitter fans take action against the case
Several threads on Twitter have comprehensively recounted the sequences of events that led to the cancellation of Ballinger’s online appearances.
Some people are continuing to rationalize Ballinger’s behavior, even though these discussions have helped to shed light on the situation.
There is a general “pass” for Ballinger’s behavior because she is a woman; however, as the informative thread below communicates, the internet would be in a frenzy if it were a male accused of such unspeakable acts; consequently, the same accountability should be held to Ballinger, regardless of factors such as gender, age, sexuality, etc.
Ballinger has lost more than 30,000 subscribers in only one week as a direct result of the outcry that these statements have provoked.
This is not the end of the story.
The young son of Christopher and Jessica Ballinger, Parker Ballinger, the nephew of Rachel, Colleen, and Trent Ballinger, appears in several of Colleen’s films.
Parker is also the son of Christopher and Jessica Ballinger. In these videos, Ballinger engages in s*xually provocative behavior in front of Parker.
Whether using a microphone as a phallic object or asking the toddler to “put a diaper on her,” the YouTuber has repeatedly exploited her nephew and used him for clout.
The platform has banned Ballinger.
There is a widespread opinion on social media that the Ballingers have exploited Parker for views, notably encouraging interactions from homophobes and pedophiles.
This is about the entire Ballinger family.
In a similar spirit, Colleen has a stage presentation in which she encourages children to come on stage and act out s*xual events, such as pretending to give birth or be on a date with her.
Similarly, she encourages children to pretend to be on a date with her.
Twitter video footage reveals that Ballinger asked a boy who was nine years old to put his hand down her trousers for a “snack,” all while the child in question appears to be becoming increasingly uncomfortable.
The now 36-year-old person has been at the center of rumors and suspicions for many years.
