This message was shared by his ex-girlfriend “Vi” in a tweet that has since been deleted. Only through this tweet did the case and the verdict become fully public.
Many people on Twitter were shocked by the news and there was a lot of encouragement for the young woman. On the other hand, fans and colleagues of Danny were shocked and at first did not know how to deal with and react to the situation.
Gradually, many colleagues distanced themselves from the YouTuber with whom Danny had worked on Twitter. Including that one Rapper T Lowwhich has been the focus of Danny’s VLOGs lately.
This also showed up “shocked, super confused” and don’t know how to deal with the situation. He also writes in a story on his Instagram profilethat he knew about the topic, but had initially believed in Danny’s view. Only after the court ruling did he distance himself from Danny and announced that the joint VLOGs would also end.
Many other YouTubers and streamers spoke up on this topic and sharply condemned the act.
The Twitch streamer MontanaBlack writes on Twitter:
“Someone who rapes a woman, under whatever circumstances, shouldn’t be a part of our society for a long, long time. The German judicial system disgusts me at least as much as the perpetrators themselves.”
“Yesterday the double rape of a woman by an influencer went viral. Today in the Drukos people are discussing ‘what could justify rape’ ‘whether he had to confess’ ‘that he seems too nice to have done that’ and ‘who would protect his bro too’.
Many others stated on Twitter and other social media platforms that they clearly distance themselves from sexual violence and wish the victims of such acts a lot of strength.
Former sexism debate about YouTuber Danny
There was already a heated debate at the beginning of 2021 sexism debate on Twitch and Twitter, which are also about said Danny and the streamer Tinker Leo turned. It was about a situation that took place in the game “Rust”. Danny asked in the game Tinkerleo: “Want to sit on my face?” However, this sentence did not go down well with her.
Apparently it was just a well-known inside joke from Danny’s circle of acquaintances. However, since the two streamers met for the first time on the “Rust” server, Tinkerleo could do very little with the spell.
Ultimately, Danny apologized to Tinkerleo and he apparently realized his sexist insider was misplaced. In the meantime, both streamers have spoken out and the debate has ended.
