Daniel Avidan, age 42, has been a long-term presence on the Game Grumps channel, where he plays through video games and gives commentary with animator and fellow YouTuber Arin Hanson.
The two have been through many years of Game Grumps together after the exit of JonTron in 2013. Avidan’s comedy band, Ninja Sex Party, has also seen massive success alongside his work with Game Grumps over the years.
According to details of grooming allegations against him, on March 21, 2021, Game Grumps and the name of Dan Avidan began trending on Twitter after few Screenshots, a video of him appeared on Twitter along with a Reddit post, explaining the allegations of grooming by his young fan, 22-year-old girl, against Dan Avidan.
More than five minutes duration video shows Dan Avidan luring one of his female fans by his fame and asking stupid questions from her (how she would have like to be handled upon meeting with him in the private).
The voice of Dan Avidan can be heard in the video while he keeps showing the bathtub and expressing his desire to deal with her in that. Watch the video, below.
The victim also shared the Screenshot of Dan Avidan’s WhatsApp messages which were dated back to 2017. See the Screenshot, below.
The reported victim also claimed that she began texting Dan while she was underage, and as she came of age, their conversations began to turn toward a sexual nature.
This allegedly led to them meeting up at a Game Grumps live show, where sexual activity purportedly occurred. A few weeks later, the victim claimed that all contact with Avidan ceased completely.
The whole situation was explained by a Reddit user who initially received the video and Screenshots from Dan Avidan’s alleged victim. Read the complete details, below.
“For over a year now there have been accusations about Dan Avidan sexting, sleeping, and ghosting younger fans, among other things. Several girls have come forward publicly, while others have contacted me or others privately,” reddit user wrote in a post.
He further added:
“A few days ago, another girl, who wishes to remain anonymous for obvious reasons, contacted me saying that she wanted to come forward, sharing both her story and some physical evidence.
To prove that her story and allegations against Dan Avidan are true, and this is indeed Dan, she has given permission to show a video (available in this link) she received from him.”
“The video was followed up by a request from Dan asking her to tell him how she would like to be f***ed in the tub,” he added.
Her experience with Dan matches the pattern of the girls that have come forward. While she was underage, she privately contacted him as a fan and more than happily engaged in conversation.
He also shared another Screenshot from another victim of Dan Avidan who came forward with similar allegations back in 2013. See the Screenshot, below.
As the years went by, and she became of legal age, their conversations turned into sexts, and eventually led to her meeting him backstage at a Game Grumps Live show where sexual activity occurred. A couple of weeks after, all contact from Dan ceased.
Both Arin Hanson and Avidan have yet to release an official response on the subject at the time of writing.
