Austin Jones is disgusting and deserves more than whatever punishment they give him. I feel so sorry for the girls in this incident as well as the past one. He took advantage of poor little girls who I bet were thrilled someone who was famous, that they looked up to, wanted to talk to them. He guilted them into committing those acts by saying if they didn’t then they must not be his biggest fan. No one who could be considered an idol to a group of people should ever use that power in such horrible ways. I hope those girls find someone better to look up to, who won’t deceive and exploit them, and I hope they know it’s not their fault and that we all support them and making sure Austin can’t do this to anyone else.
a little over 2 years ago I posted a story on my tumblr about austin jones allegedly asking girls under 16 to send him pornographic photos of themselves. he was 21-22 at the time & he was just beginning to get popular. I had to remove the post not even 30 minutes later after receiving HUNDREDS of abusive messages from his fans & back then, I didn’t know how to respond to or handle nasty messages so I stopped publicly posting about him. there was proof of it back then but no one seemed to believe me or the handful of people who just knew what he was doing was disgusting. people who saw & believed the proof we had, didn’t care. they didn’t think a 21 year old asking 13 year old girls for videos of themselves twerking was wrong. regardless, I reported him to his local police via email since I live in Australia I didn’t see any other way. I never heard back & austin continued to live his life, getting more & more famous. over the past few years his following got bigger & bigger to the point his videos were starting to appear in my news feed. my friends & family were sharing this pedophiles videos, making him money & giving him views without knowing. I began to comment on every post from a friend or family member that I saw, explaining the kind of person he was. I felt that if I stopped just a handful of people from watching his videos & sharing his content, that would make some difference. a friend of mine started a petition to have his facebook & youtube accounts taken down but we couldn’t find enough people to sign the petition to make it worth it & the abuse we continued to cop from his fans made it harder & harder for us to get it out there. finally, austin moved from text messaging his young fans to facebook messaging them which is a lot easier to track & prove than text messages which can be faked so easily.
on monday, he was arrested & I couldn’t be happier. if he’s convicted, he faces a minimum of 15 years in prison for child pornography. maybe now, people will believe me when I say AUSTIN JONES is a fucking pedophile & deserves to rot in jail, forever.
