Onision is a YouTuber who is popular for being controversial. That’s mainly because of his child predatory behavior that has been going for years. Onision’s problematic behavior has been exposed by the victims themselves and many popular YouTubers such as Blaire White. Recently, Chris Hansen from To Catch a Predator, who now has a YouTube channel of the same name, revealed that the FBI is investigating the actions of YouTuber Onision (Gregory Jackson).
History of Allegations against Onision
The controversial nature of the YouTuber first came into the public light when Vidcon banned him in 2012. The ban came after he made a statement about his ex-girlfriend which was highly problematic.
He stated that his ex-girlfriend ‘had sex with more than 20 people’ which meant that she’s not capable of being raped.
Onision and Girlfriend Shiloh
In 2011, he also taped his then-girlfriend Shiloh in a state where she is helpless and suffering from a sickness in the shower. Onision is standing there just filming her and not doing anything to help her. Shortly afterward, the two broke up and Shiloh stated that she was suffering from a miscarriage.
In a statement, Shiloh revealed the mental and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of Onision. Furthermore, she also stated that she had sexual relations with the YouTuber when she was just 17. This was in a state where it was legal.
Chris Hansen even had Shiloh on his YouTube channel where we got to hear her side of the story where she reiterates her allegations against Onision.
Child Grooming Allegations Against Onision and Partner Kai
Child grooming is when you befriend a child and slowly get them comfortable enough to a point where you can sexually exploit them. There have been multiple stories of child grooming like Shiloh’s where Onision and his partner Kai (formerly known as Lainey) befriended young girls and then ended up emotionally manipulating them. The emotional manipulation often resulted in them eventually having an intimate relationship with Onision and Kai when they turned 18. The disturbing fact is that Onision’s partner Kai was originally a minor as well when the two started dating.
Sarah | A Victim of Child Grooming
A popular YouTuber Blaire White, who previously exposed a trans pedophile by the name of Jessica Yaniv, shared a story of a victim of Onision and Kai. The survivor’s name is Sarah and she was a fan of Onision who regularly tweeted at him. When she was 14, Kai and Sarah started talking and eventually, she became very close with both Kai and Onision. Their friendship was of an inappropriate nature and Sarah claims that she sent graphic nude images of herself to Kai. Most of the conversations were definitely not appropriate. Then at 16, Sarah was facing trouble at home and revealed that to both Onision (Gregory Jackson) and Kai who offered her to stay at their home. Then Sarah started living with them and even appeared in their YouTube videos.
Later on, Sarah reveals that she was being groomed by the couple because just 4 days after she turned 18, she started to engage in sexual relations with Onision and Kai. Onision even forced Sarah to make a video to clear out his and Kai’s name. Now, Sarah stands firm with her allegation.
Billie | Another Victim of Manipulation
This is similar to other cases as well where girls have been groomed. One, in particular, is Billie who came on the Chris Hansen show as well. Billie stated she was more interested in Kai but Onision pressurized her and Kai to kiss in front of them. Though Billie was 18 at the time, she ended up having a three-way sexual relationship with Gregory and Kai. This three-way relationship happened both ‘naturally’ and from Gregory insisting it on. Billie also shares that her time with Sarah overlapped. As per her, they both would often end up doing all the house chores like babysitting their kids and cooking food. They did all this without getting paid.
Chris Hansen Is Getting the FBI Involved With Onision and Kai
After a lengthy interview with Billie, Chris Hansen revealed that he was getting the FBI involved in this. He stated that there’s a great chance Onision and Kai could be convicted of their crimes when all the allegations against them are proven to be true. There are many victims of theirs that are willing to come out and testify. As they have already shared their harrowing stories in the public forum.
Can Onision and Kai Go To Jail?
Now, Onision (Gregory Jackson) and Kai were careful. They did not engage in any sexual acts with their victims unless they were in a state where it was legal for them to do so or until the victim turned 18. Though, Hansen shared that sharing sexually explicit pictures with a minor who is underage is actually a federal crime that can get you up to 10 years in prison. This is, in fact, true.
The Department of Justice of the United States of America states:
Notably, the legal definition of sexually explicit conduct does not require that an image depict a child engaging in sexual activity. A picture of a naked child may constitute illegal child pornography if it is sufficiently sexually suggestive. Additionally, the age of consent for sexual activity in a given state is irrelevant; any depiction of a minor under 18 years of age engaging in sexually explicit conduct is illegal.
What will happen with Onision?
Recently, Patreon banned Onision for doxxing (sharing of personal information of someone with a malicious purpose). This resulted in the YouTuber in question having a complete meltdown. It must be noted that his YouTube channel is still not banned. Let’s see if the FBI investigation against him is successful in providing justice or not.
