Being a “celebrity” on Youtube often places a person into the “spotlight.” While this is usually a good form of problicity, for one Youtuber, this is far from that. Recently, the famous (infamous) Youtuber, Onision (Greg Daniels) has not only gotten the attention of journalist Chris Hansen, he has apparantly gotten the attention of the FBI. Allegations ranging from sexual acts, grooming, to abuse, it appears that this is one Youtuber who may not be around much longer. This article will be evaluating the situation revolving around this individual, we will also be discussing the various accusations against Greg.
Grooming and abuse
The accusations against Greg Daniels (Onision,) are disturbing to say the least. In fact, they were enough to get the attention of journalist, Chris Hansen. When interviewing varous victims, Hansen learned that Onision treaded the line of legality when it came to women. In every interview conducted, the victims explained how they were, at the time, 16-18 years of age at the time of meeting Greg. In one instance, Greg met a young girl, approx 16 years of age, at a hotel. Allegedly within minutes they were having sexual relations. To see this interview, click the link provided here.
In every interview conducted by Hansen, the common themes are: Greg met the girls prior to them being 18yo. Greg verbally (and potentially physically) abused them, he used various isolation and manipulation tactics to gain and hold control of the niave women. Beyond the above mentioned, the disturbing theme of grooming comes into play. One such example of this behavior is in how Greg would often pressure the teens into sex. If they were to reject him, he would simply find another method to which he would apply the said pressure.
in 2009 Greg’s then wife, Shiloh had a complete mental breakdown. This was a breakdown that the infamous Youtuber posted onto his channel and would later use to smear the young woman. Shiloh, prior (and post) Onision, was a very well off Canadian based singer. Upon getting into a relationship with Greg, she was isolated, forced to move out of Canada, and would later lose her music contracts; as you could imagine, years of this, and various abuses, would cause any rational person to “snap,” and snapped she did.
In regards to grooming, nothing mentioned above is new. It’s common for a groomer to isolate the target from family, friends, and even the things that are familiar to them. Often, once this is accomplished, the abuse begins. The objective with the abuse is to “break” a person, tear down their self-esteem. With their self-esteem broken, this reduces the chances of the victim leaving. In most cases, the victim feels as if they deserve what is being done, this is the best they can do, and the tragic list goes on. However, for some victims, such as in the case of Onision, the victims break away from the abuse.
Hansen vs. Onision
As mentioned above, Chris Hansen has now been investigating Greg. According to him, the FBI have also been conducting an investigation. Thus far, Hansen has interviewed, at minimum, a dozen of Greg’s former victims. Each story reveals the same disturbing trends: Isolation, verbal abuse, manipulation, and barely legal sexual acts. Another common accusation, though unconfirmed, is that Greg may had potentially recorded such acts. We mentioned that Onision had began a relationship with the, then teenaged girl, Shiloh. What we hadn’t mentioned was the two had met in PA., where they had sexual intercourse. During this time, the police had been called, the room was raided, and the two were found laying on the hotel’s bed. Next to the bed stood various electronics used for recording, though at this time, nothing had been apparantly recording.
Because of Hansen’s involvement, Greg has obviously gotten a lot of “unwanted” attention. However, this attention is warranted. In a recent video, clips can viewed to which Greg explains how a 16yo girl (child) flew herself to their house just to visit Onision’s wife. The video in discussion is here. According to the Youtuber, “no funny business” had occured during this visit. However, we have learned that the claim is very likely to be untrue.
The case is still very much open. With that, we are going to continue monitoring and watching as new information becomes available. As we learn more about this case, and the potential involvement of the FBI, we will be doing update articles. For now, we will leave it to this. Rather you know of this man or not, it is abundantly clear that something disturbing is occuring within his house. While we normally take a neutral stance to these sort of accusations, the overwhelming amount of evidence, and victims, strongly implicates truth to the accusation.
