WTF?! Another D-Bag YouTuber in Major S*** for Attempted Sex Acts with Minor
What. The. Actual. F*** is wrong with the YouTube world lately?! Earlier this week we were literally appalled after Sam Pepper started a GoFundMe to encourage people to pay him big bucks to get him off the internet. K. Then, Carter Reynolds proved that yes, he really is the d-bag we thought him to be after verbally attacking the girl he was accused of attempting to rape. But wait just a second, because we know you thought it couldn’t get any worse. Oh…it can. Now, 15-year-old Steven Fernandez has been arrested on sex charges against a 12-year-old girl. Let that sink in.
Is this even real life?! On Thursday, the LA police issued a statement informing the public of the YouTube slash skateboarding sensation’s plotted attempt to coax a young fan into performing sex acts on him. This punk actually had the nerve to call over the not-even-teenage girl to his car promising he’d introduce her to A-list celebs as long as she engaged in sexual activities with him, which is why the native Cali teen surely takes the cake for the scummiest YouTuber (for now).
It actually gets worse; Steven wasn’t acting alone. In fact, he had a little help from his 22-year-old manager, Jose Barajas, as well as 27-year-old skateboarder Keelan Lamar Dadd, who she also had to promise to perform sex acts on, as well. The three a**hole sex offenders made plans to meet the girl at a sex house, where the dirty deal would be put into motion.
They were this close to actually getting away with it too, until they showed up on the site to meet police officers and get escorted away into a lovely, little police cruiser. As it turns out, the girl was not as naive as they suspected and got the cops involved in his plot. After authorities were informed, detectives intervened, posing as the 12-year-old girl they believed they were going to be meeting.
Even though some individuals, who clearly need their heads examined, found ways to defend the teen for his actions, many others took to Twitter to express their disgust.

Please don't defend Steven Fernandez, yes he's only 15 but he is old enough to understand what he did was completely wrong.

All three have been charged with lewd and lascivious acts with a minor. After Barajas and Dadd paid their bail, $475,000 and $200, 000 respectively, they were released. As for Fernandez, he was released to his mother and ordered to wear an ankle bracelet.
Honestly, we’re at a loss for words and really hope that this is the last we hear of scummy YouTubers, because we’ve certainly had enough to last a lifetime.
