YouTube Star Bryan Hawn, 5th Man to Accuse Gay Porn Star Topher DiMaggio of Sexual Assault

Tuesday Feb 6, 2018

Two more men have come forward to accuse gay porn star Topher DiMaggio of sexual assault, bringing the total of men accusing the Andrew Christian underwear model of sexual misconduct to five.

Speaking with Instinct magazine Monday, YouTube star Bryan Hawn, who often posts sexy parody music videos of various pop songs, detailed an alleged incident involving DiMaggio from 2017.

"Last year, I was at Mickey's in Los Angeles where he was hosting for the night, and he came up to me, grabbed me by the legs trying to pick me up and put his hands on my ass," Hawn told the magazine. "I yelled for him to stop several times in the middle of the club and he persisted.

"The club went silent as everyone was staring at me," he added. "I had to wrestle with all my strength to get him off of me, he was so incredibly aggressive."

Hawn goes on to say DiMaggio allegedly started to verbally assault him.

"When he finally stopped, he proceeded to call me a 'pussy,' and tell me that I need to learn how to be more of a man," he said. "He continued calling me names as we walked back to his friends who were completely embarrassed for him.

"To put your hands on somebody that you do not know in such an incredibly aggressive manner," the YouTube star told Instinct. "It was wrong on every level. I am certain I am not the first guy that has experienced this unwanted attention and probably not the last. I can only imagine in a bedroom setting. That is scary to think about.

"Just because somebody works in an industry promoting their physique does not grant anyone permission to put their hands on someone's body. This is not a petting zoo!" he added.

Hawn told the magazine, "Topher is not the only one in the community that has crossed that boundary."

"If u don't have self control, you shouldn't't be allowed in the club, and alcohol and drugs does not make it excusable or acceptable," he added. "People have said before, 'well, it's a gay club... what do u expect.' Bullshit! Take pride in your community, we aren't a bunch of wild animals, we are humans. And if we want the rest of the world to treat us with the decent respect of a human being, it's time we start acting like ones."

The YouTuber also shared screenshots of a text message he sent to DiMaggio's boyfriend Matt O'Reilly a day after the alleged incident. Hawn claims O'Reilly tried to hug him but DiMaggio allegedly told him not to touch Hawn. Click here to see the photo via Instinct.

Not long after Hawn's interview with Instinct was published, a fifth man came forward to allege that DiMaggio sexually assaulted him. The fifth man, who remains anonymous and was referred to as "Alex," spoke with gay porn news site Str8UpGayPorn (extremely NSFW) on Saturday but the interview was published Monday, shortly after Hawn's Instinct interview went live.

Like the two anonymous men who previously accused DiMaggio of sexual assault, Alex, 28, is not involved in the gay porn industry and says he met the porn star in 2014 during Pride weekend in Seattle.

"Andrew Christian was hosting a show with some Trophy Boys for a main event at Neighbours Nightclub; Topher was one of them," Alex told the website (NSFW). "Neighbours is also an after hours from 2 to 4 a.m., and we went there with one of our friends who knew Topher. We met him, and he had this attitude the whole time. He kept saying, 'You guys know this party is because of me, right? This is my party. Everyone's here because of the party I'm throwing.'"

"I was hanging out in this VIP area to the right of the stage, and it's raised several feet above the regular dance floor area," Alex continued. "I was up there above the stage and chatting with Topher, and my boyfriend was down on the floor right beneath us, where he could see us. So I'm talking to Topher, and he just grabs my ass out of nowhere."

Alex says he thought DiMaggio was "joking" so he "pulled my waistband down a little to be like, yes, that's my ass. And then, all of a sudden, he flipped me around against the railing, crouched down and pulled my shorts down and started eating my ass." Alex goes on to say he was "stunned" and tried to "push back and tell him 'no'" but DiMaggio allegedly "reached his left arm up and pinned me down against the railing."

"I couldn't really move and wanted him to stop, and my boyfriend had this look of shock on his face," he told Str8UpGayPorn (NSFW). "All I could really do was reach back and smack him in the head with my hand. After I did, he bit down on my right butt cheek, hard."

Alex confirmed he hit DiMaggio, causing the model to "bite down really hard. But he finally undid his mouth, and he moved his arm so I could back up from the railing and get away."

He said the alleged incident "lasted less than 30 seconds"

"At first, when I got down to him and we were leaving, my boyfriend was pissed at me because he thought I welcomed that," Alex told the site. "But then I told him what happened, that I one hundred percent did not want that and I said, 'stop.' I showed him my butt cheek, and it was completely purple with teeth marks."

After getting away from DiMaggio, Alex alleges the porn start began "yelling at me and calling me a 'pussy' over and over again."

"I never saw him again after that, and I've avoided going to Andrew Christian events or to bars in WeHo when I'm there, because I know which bars he usually works at," Alex added.

Str8UpGayPorn (NSFW) also provided a flyer of the Andrew Christian event from 2014 that shows DiMaggio. The website also writes it has asked the underwear company, which currently features DiMaggio as a model on its website's front page, for a comment as at least two claims of sexual assault allegedly took place at events hosted by the porn star that were sponsored by Andrew Christian.

The latest accusations come after gay porn actor Tegan Zayne took to Twitter in late January to accuse DiMaggio of rape. Days after that, two other men, both anonymous, spoke out and also accused DiMaggio of rape.

DiMaggio initially responded to Zayne's claims on Twitter, reportedly writing in part, "I vehemently deny all these allegations" but he has deleted his message after being accused of plagiarizing his response, which was similar to media mogul Russell Simmons's statement to The New York Times when he responded to women accusing him of rape.

DiMaggio did offer a statement to gay porn news site Queer Me Now (extremely NSFW), saying of Zayne: "He's crazy and twists stories. He was so happy to film with me even the next day. It's sad. I'm [not] going to give it any attention."

DiMaggio has not responded to the latest allegations.
