Colleen has previously addressed to allegations over her behavior with fans. In 2020, fellow content creator Adam McIntyre posted a video called “colleen ballinger, stop lying” in which he accused her of putting him in uncomfortable situations when he was a teen. He specifically called out an instance in which she sent him lingerie during a livestream.
At the time, Colleen responded to Adam by acknowledging that the underwear incident was “completely stupid,” adding in a separate apology video, “I should never have sent that.”
“I don’t know what part of my brain was missing at the time that I thought, ‘Oh, this is a normal, silly thing to do,'” she continued. “But I am not a monster.”
In the wake of the recent grooming allegations and Colleen’s musical response, Adam noted a silver lining in a scathing message on social media.
“im glad her video did ONE thing,” he tweeted June 28,” show you all EXACTLY the type of evil woman she is, that a lot of us have experienced over the past few years behind the scenes, the mask has slipped…everyone meet the REAL colleen ballinger.”
