YouTube star Toby ‘Tobuscus’ Turner accused of alleged rape

Posted on Apr 12 2016 - 3:01am by

YouTube comedian Toby “Tobuscus” Turner is being accused of sexually abusing his ex-girlfriend.

Turner, a viral sensation with more than 15 million followers, allegedly raped fellow YouTube star April Fletcher, also known as April Efff.

Fletcher, a video gamer who works for Xbox, claims Turner drugged and sexually abused her while they were dating. She detailed the allegations in a Tumblr post titled “The Truth About Tobuscus: Abuse, rape, drugs, pretty much everything terrible.”

“Throughout my five years of knowing him, I have been mentally and physically abused,” she writes.

Fletcher recalls a time when Turner allegedly drugged her drink and another incident in which she claims Turner continued to have sex with her after she told him to stop.

“I regret never going to the hospital. I regret never going to the cops for what he did,” she said of keeping her silence because she didn’t want to ruin his career.

The duo reportedly met five years ago when Fletcher moved to Los Angeles to work with Turner. She says the last time she slept with him was when he allegedly forced himself on her in 2013.

YouTube comedian Toby “Tobuscus” Turner is being accused of sexually abusing his ex girlfriend April Fletcher.

Fletcher decided to come forward after seeing Turner in an ad for children’s toys promoting him as a hero.

“Parents don’t know how terrible and toxic he is. How he hurts and destroys the best part of you,” she continued.

“A hero doesn’t disrespect, abuse, rape and drug women,” she said.

Turner responded by defending himself in a YouTube video he posted on Tuesday.

“A person I dated a few years ago has just made some extremely serious, false accusations about me,” he said, shedding tears. 

“I want to be crystal clear. I have never done anything without her consent. I’ve never tried to trick her into anything. These allegations are absolutely false.”

Another ex of Turner’s, Amelia Talon, posted follow-up video confirming the 31-year-old’s sexually aggressive behavior. She also claims she was drugged by the high-profile YouTuber.

Fans voiced their support for Fletcher on social media.

“There are many monsters in this ‘community’ and it takes serious balls to open up about s—t like this. I support you 100%, girl!” tweeted Bree Essrig.

Turner has three YouTube channels, including a scripted comedy series about a self-involved YouTube star in the works.
