Chris D’Elia was accused last week of sexual misconduct by a slew of women on social media.
The 40-year-old was accused on Twitter of inappropriate sexual activities with women, some of which claim to have been under the legal age of sexual consent.
According to accusers, he sent messages allegedly saying he wanted to have “naked sex” with a then 17-year-old in 2012. During the alleged email exchange, he requested inappropriate imagery before asking “How old are you,” to which she responded, “12,”

Emails between both parties have been released to the media via his team, with one email to another female allegedly reading that D’Elia wanted to “make out,” with her, to which she followed by saying, “Chirs, I’m 16.” In his response, he said, “Oh s***. I thought you were at my [standup] show. Gotta be 18 [to get into that] at least. My bad. Bye.”
In response to the allegations made against him, he released a statement that reads, “I have never knowingly pursued any underage woman at any point. All of my relationships have been both legal and consensual and I have never met or exchanged any inappropriate photos with the people who have tweeted about me.”
A representative explained, “It is important that the public has all the information to make an informed decision on the coordinated attacks on Chris D’Elia, these messages help prove that all of Chris’s relationships were both legal and consensual.”
