Social networks may launch careers, but they are sometimes strongly criticized and find themselves at the heart of tragedies. You only have to mention the suicide of Youtuber Mavachou to understand it. The young woman could not bear the cyberbullying she had been the victim of for years and finally killed herself. Today, it’s another case that affects the Youtube giant. One of its stars, Léo Grasset, known for his channel “DirtyBiology” created in 2014, is accused of rape by a YouTuber and sexual assault by seven other women.

In an interview with Mediapart, the YouTuber in question came back to the moment when everything changed, one evening in July 2016: “I told him several times that I don't want to” before to describe a violent scene. Léo Grasset allegedly “held her with his hands around her neck and “penetrated her with very strong blows em>. A moment when she claims to have been scared in addition to being in a state of shock:“I wanted to scream and there was no sound coming out of my mouth (…) I really had a kind of maximum cognitive dissonance where I was like 'this is the person I love and that just happened.' »

No complaint filed against Léo Grasset

The alleged victim never dared to walk through the door of a police station: « At the time, I think if I file a complaint, my career will be ruined. At best, I will be seen as the girl who was raped. At worst, all the other popular videographers will gang up on me. To date, no complaint has been filed, either on the side of the alleged rape victim or those who accuse Léo Grasset of sexual assault. Contacted by Mediapart, the latter did not wish to speak: “We do not wish to respond to press requests, Mr Grasset being available to the judicial authorities in the assumption that it was seized of these allegations replied his lawyers.
