Other stories continued to be posted across multiple accounts, and across Twitter, many pointed out the ironic notion that D'Elia was accused of creepy behavior after playing characters of a similar ilk, including that of twisted comedian Joshua "Henderson" Bunter on the Netflix series You.
He finishes by saying, "That being said, I really am truly sorry".
Chris D'Elia, the stand-up comedian who starred in the NBC sitcoms Undateable and Whitney, and who has memorably played a pedophile in both Workaholics and Netflix's You, has been accused of sexual misconduct towards minors by numerous women over the last day. Another claimed D'Elia used nude photos of an 18-year-old woman to try and blackmail her.
She wrote: 'Imagine being 16 and being groomed by a stand up comedian twice ur age and the only reason you never met up and never got physically m*lested was because u had just gotten a boyfriend ur own age'. "I've been reflecting on this for some time now and I promise I will continue to do better". The following January, D'Elia asked Rossi if she wanted to meet up while he was in Tampa, AZ, the screenshots show.
Beijing locks areas down as new coronavirus outbreak gathers pace
The 57 new confirmed coronavirus infections include 36 in Beijing , the highest daily number of cases diagnosed since April 13 . More than 1,000 new infections are being recorded every day in India's capital, exposing a dire shortage of hospital beds.
A Twitter sleuth has since dug up an old tweet of D'Elia's which shows that he was in Arizona during the exact time that he would have been talking to Rossi, per her screenshots.
The accusations in the tweets range from D'Elia allegedly inviting underage girls to his room to "cuddle", to more disturbing allegations of forcing sex on minors while they were intoxicated. But I now see I told him several times. A girl with username @SheRatesDogs narrated an incident and wrote, "Fun fact about Chris D'elia: When he stayed at my hotel two years ago, he called for help with his AC unit and then exposed himself to the woman who went to help".
Comedian Lane Moore (Tinder Live, The Onion, The New Yorker, etc) tweeted, "who could've known Chris D'Elia was a creep other than anyone who's ever looked at him or heard him say things".
The screenshot not only has D'Elia's photo and account information but also shows a verified check mark next to his name, which platforms like Twitter use to confirm the legitimacy of public figures.
