TommyInnit wants people to stop drawing NSFW fanart: "I'm a child"

The Minecraft YouTuber has been bombarded with all sorts of fanmade creations in social media, with some explicit content making him uncomfortable.
TommyInnit wants people to stop drawing NSFW fanart: "I'm a child"

Thomas Simons, better known as TommyInnit, has spoken about the amounts of NSFW (not safe for work) content and fanart he's been getting, asking people to stop drawing him in suggestive and sexualized scenarios.

"Any of this not safe for work, like sex-related fanfic, whatever that is on the Wattpad or Twitter, I am not comfortable with, and I do not endorse it" Tommy stated.

The Minecraft content creator has gained a massive following over the last few months on Twitch, quickly becoming one of the fastest-growing channels on the platform soon after he joined the Dream SMP, a roleplaying server managed by Dream, a speedrunner that's one of the most beloved members in the community.

With such rapid success that's seen Tommy's Twitch reach 2.7 million followers and his YouTube channel reaching 4.52 million subscribers, a few bad apples were bound to show up.

Simons, who is 16-years-old, added that he thought it "would have been obvious" due to his age, being forced to formally address the issue instead.

Members of the Minecraft community showed public support towards TommyInnit after his remarks. JustNathanTV mentioned how people should respect the boundaries set by content creators.

"I think the fact that Tommy had to address to not sexualize him is absolutely insane. He is 16, a child! Children shouldn’t be sexualized on the internet, at all," Nathan tweeted out.

Draggiebtw chimed in as well, believing it's utterly ridiculous that Tommy has to address the NSFW content creators and plead them to stop in the first place.

"He is a f**king child, how does it sit right with anyone to do that like really??"

While it's clear fame has attracted some unpleasant followers, we're happy to see the Minecraft community backing him up after publicly speaking about issues that make him uncomfortable.
