Ansel Elgort Said He Is “The Most Threatening Guy Ever” Before Sexual Assault Allegations Surfaced
Ansel Elgort may have woken up to a Twitter firestorm this morning after a girl came forward with her story accusing the actor of sexual assault. She included a selfie as well as private messages between the two that she has been holding on to since the incident occurred when she was just 17. But, the startling things is in an interview with GQ Magazine he called himself “threatening” when it comes to inviting girls over back in 2014.
Ansel Elgort Called Himself “Threatening” Before Sexual Assault Accusations
After the girl, Gabby shared her story, another Twitter user posted a screenshot of these exact words from the interview calling his actions “disgusting.” In the interview, he said, “Girls love it when you have some nerdy things in your room.” He continued on to say “It makes you look less threatening, even though I’m, like, very threatening. I’m the most threatening guy ever.” This certainly is not helping his case as he spoke in that interview about how moving out of his parent’s house and said that he was never going back. This sexual encounter with Gabby happened after Elgort moved out of his parent’s house and made these comments about being threatening. Others called this quote “creepy.” It is worth mentioning that the interview and the sexual assault occurred in 2014.
She detailed her sexual experience with the “Baby Driver” actor as “painful.” She alleges that the star also asked her to send him nude pictures but not to make any mention of this because it would ruin his career. She posted a screenshot of Elgort’s message to her on Instagram where he gave her his private Snapchat and asked her not to share it with anyone else. In an expose written by The Telegraph, Elgort was criticized for his pompous attitude and bragging about getting female attention after the success of his movie “The Fault In Our Stars.” This includes celebrities and other girls that were fans that he would go out on dates with. He often talked about how paparazzi would continue to follow him on dates, but it did come off as bragging about his celebrity status.
Other People Shared Their Stories About The Actors Inappropriate Behavior
Elgort also spoke to Billboard Magazine in the past saying “It’s important to be able to blend in, otherwise you turn into a Hollywood douchebag. I’m sure plenty of people think I am one, too. I’m super easy to hate. But it’s fine. It’s hard to be liked and successful.” All of these comments point to the actor being quite full of himself which is something that Twitter users are quickly coming to realize. Gabby posted that several people sent her messages also sharing stories about similar interactions they have had with Elgort and others.
One Twitter user posted a Twitter conversation with the actor where he also gave her his private Snapchat username.
And another Twitter user said that he would constantly flirt with their underage friends even though they reiterated that they were too young.
Ansel Elgort has not yet spoken out about these accusations but based on the fact that he has over 10 million followers on Instagram and 3.6 million on Twitter, he should definitely address the issue soon.
