Chris Hansen and his camera crew approached YouTuber Onision’s house in an attempt to land an interview last week. In response, Onision called 911.
Onision, who is the current subject of Hansen’s YouTube livestream series, Have A Seat With Chris Hansen, has denied allegations of child grooming and emotional abuse. Since October 2019, Hansen has interviewed multiple women who have accused Onision and his husband, Kai, of grooming them when they were minors. The couple has also been accused of exchanging explicit photos with a minor. Social media users have been pushing YouTube to ban Onision.
Hansen obtained Onision’s 911 call and posted it to his YouTube channel. Onision refers to Hansen and his camera crew as “YouTube stalkers.”
“There’s a 19-year-old who I didn’t want to hang out with … I said I didn’t want them in my life anymore, they went to this person [Hansen] and said a bunch of mean things about me,” Onision told the 911 operator. “And so now this person’s trying to aggressively pursue me in a really hateful way.”
Onision also claimed that the teenager in question had mental health issues that were “really affecting” his life in “a negative way.” The woman he’s referring to, known as Sarah, alleged that Onision and his husband took advantage of her after they became her legal guardians.
Onision hasn’t publicly commented on the 911 call.
