YouTube singer Bryan Hawn accuses porn star Topher DiMaggio of sexual assault

Bryan Hawn opened up about the incident

A fourth man has come forward with claims that porn star Topher DiMaggio sexually assaulted them. 

Last month, porn star Tegan Zayne alleged that Topher raped him the night before the pair shot a scene together. Shortly after, two unidentified men also accused the porn star of rape, followed by a third man who was allegedly raped in the bathroom of a friend's house. 

Now, YouTuber Bryan Hawn has come forward with his own claims and recalled how aggressive Topher was to him during a night our in Los Angeles during an interview. 

Speaking to Instinct Magazine, Hawn said: "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." 

"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. I had to wrestle with all my strength to get him off of me, he was so incredibly aggressive." 

Much like previous claims, Hawn claimed Topher 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 continued calling me names as we walked back to his friends who were completely embarassed for him." 

Hawn continued: "To put your hands on somebody that you do not know in such an incredibly aggressive manner. 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."

 

He added: "This is not a petting zoo."

The YouTube star then said Topher hasn't been the only person to elicit this behaviour and called for it to end. 

"Topher is not the only one in the community that has crossed that boundary," he said. "If you don't self control, you shouldn't be allowed in the club, and alcohol and drugs does not make it excusable or acceptable." 

DiMaggio has denied the original allegations made by Tegan Zayne, saying: "These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core. All of my relations with this person have been consensual and willing."

He is yet to respond to the latest claims.
