Not Only Did Trisha Paytas Date a Pedophile, But She Defended Him, Too

By  | 

Despite the fact that she came out as gay at the end of 2016, Trisha Paytas has primarily dated guys in the last couple months. One of those men she went out with? A literal freakin’ pedophile.

The 28-year-old YouTube star “randomly met” Evan Francisco Gomez on Tinder and posted a picture from their date a few days ago. Fans quickly did some digging and found out he actually admitted to taking a picture of a 3-year-old boy using the bathroom at Dodger Stadium in 2012.

The then-26-year-old pleaded no contest to secretly photographing the toddler and was sentenced to three “years’ probation, 300 hours of community service and 10 days of Caltrans labor.” He was also banned from the baseball stadium, “taking photographs of anyone without their permission or possessing a camera, cellphone or any other recording device while using a public restroom.”

As expected, fans freaked the eff out about this information — Did Trisha know about this guy’s past and not care? Apparently, the answer is no. The YouTuber addressed everyone’s concerns in a video posted over the weekend, and while she often said she wasn’t trying to defend him, there was a lot of defense going on.

The blonde basically said she doesn’t know the whole story and therefore doesn’t feel comfortable judging the man who she hardly knows.

“Do we have to treat people as less than human because they made a mistake,” she questioned her viewers. “Do we just not treat them as human beings? Do we just not associate with them? Do we just shun them because of a mistake? Because at the end of the day, the only one who can judge them is god.”

Trisha confirmed that while she wants to get to know Evan more, she broke off all contact and unfollowed him on social media because the unwanted attention is not fair to him.
