On 25th October, Valkcy posted a Twitlonger revealing how Demetrius attempted to have sexually charged conversations with them, despite expressing their disinterest in him sexually. Valkcy was only 14 years of age at the time. "I can no longer ignore it as his audience of young and impressionable girls is growing by the second," Valkcy said.
Demetrius from Dream SMP was accused of grooming and soliciting underage girls.
"He would frequently ask me for nudes, 'joke' about us sending nudes to each other, and talk to me about my body and sex. When I was 14 and 15, Demetrius and I exchanged explicit pictures (he sent me his d*#k and asked for t*# pics, to which I agreed as well as him paying me for one instance). He was 19 & 20," Valkcy stated in their TwitLonger.
Valkcy added, "I wanted to keep talking to him because I didn't want to lose one of my best friends, so I tried to ignore and disregard it when he made sexual remarks towards me."

"We were best friends, and he was there for me when nobody else was. He made me feel safe. I trusted him and truly believed he cared about me. Our relationship turned from best friends to sexual really quickly. He constantly asked me for sexual favors… including nudes and videos. " Jaden said
Jaden continued, saying: "We exchanged pictures multiple times. He asked me for pictures every day and saved the pictures I had sent to him on a folder on his computer," adding "at this time I was 14, and he was 19."
There are at least another dozen similar accounts circulating on Twitter at the time of writing.
