Chris D’Elia Wiki – Biography

Chris D’Elia, is a comedian and actor known for his Netflix specials, podcast, and standup routines. His most recent Netflix special, No Pain, came out in April. He has not responded to any of these claims yet.

Chris D’Elia has been accused of “grooming” underage girls and asking for photos, among other offenses, by dozens of women. The firestorm of accusations started when Simone Rossi, an Arizona State graduate, tweeted about an alleged online interaction she had with comedian Chris D’Elia in 2015.

Rossi says D’Elia “groomed” her for a $exual interaction, and that the only reason she and D’Elia did not get involved is because she had a boyfriend at the time. Rossi’s Twitter thread has since set off a chain reaction of dozens of stories from other women about alleged interactions with D’Elia over the years.

Rossi’s tweet came about on Tuesday evening when she pointed out what she perceived to be the “irony” of D’Elia being cast in the second season of the Netflix series You. She wrote, “I still can’t believe Netflix cast Chris d’elia as the pedophile in the season too of ‘you’ like the literal IRONY”

She added in a subsequent tweet with screenshots of her alleged interaction with D’Elia (shown below), “imagine being 16 and being groomed by a stand-up comedian twice ur age and the only reason you never met up and never got physically m*lested was because u had just gotten a boyfriend ur own age”

Countless other stories have since been posted to Twitter. One woman tweeted of D’Elia, “He’s trash. He put me on the list at a venue to see him perform and casually said I could then meet him in his car behind the building and suck his [expletive]. I made up an excuse and never showed up.”

Victim

According to her LinkedIn, Rossi is a recent graduate of Arizona State University, with a degree in political science. You can read her full thread about D’Elia here.

Rossi claims D’Elia DMed her in 2015 while she was in high school, after she tweeted about some of his jokes. She shared what appears to be a screenshot of parts of her conversation with the comedian, in which he asks for a picture and she sends him a picture of a panda. It’s not clear how the alleged conversation started or ended.

At one point, Rossi wrote, “for the longest time I thought it was embarrassing for ME that I was interacting with this older man but he was the one who DM’d me on twitter and was the one who was twice my age and was the one that used the power imbalance between us to his advantage so f*ck Chris d’elia”

She added in another tweet, “…i realized what happened isn’t normal and that he was and could still be doing this to younger girls and it’s my job to say something”

A Twitter sleuth has since dug up an old tweet of D’Elia’s which shows that he was in Arizona during the exact time that he would have been talking to Rossi, per her screenshots. Rossi was enrolled at Arizona State University at the time.

D’Elia has not responded to Rossi’s story.

Stories About D’Elia

A few hours after Rossi tweeted her story about D’Elia, the Twitter account SheRatesDogs started a Twitter thread of alleged accusations against D’Elia, all of which are from anonymous senders. The account started the thread by tweeting, “This is crazy because I’ve literally had this sent to me about Chris D’Elia as well.”

The thread goes on and on. All of the submitted stories are anonymous, which is standard protocol for SheRatesDogs. In one story, a woman said she got in touch with D’Elia after tweet-quoting some of his jokes, and that D’Elia offered to fly her out to LA to “hook up.”

“I never answered after that but it was weird,” the woman wrote to SheRatesDogs.

D’Elia has not responded to any of the stories in this thread, either.

Other users have since tweeted their own D’Elia stories outside of the SheRatesDogs thread. One user tweeted, “although i’ve been publicly saying it for years, F*CK Chris D’elia. he solicited off of me when i was 17 years old and constantly messaged me whenever he was touring vancouver and asked me to come backstage to his shows.”

Another user tweeted a thread about an “uncomfortable” series of interactions she had with D’Elia at various comedy shows with her husband present, in which D’Elia was “pushy” with her. She wrote, “I think if I didn’t have someone in my life who I was about to marry it could have taken a much different turn.”

Many of the screenshots shared show D’Elia’s photo and account information, some even showing a verified check mark next to his name, which appears on some platforms like Twitter to establish legitimacy with public figures.

Though D’Elia has reached household name status in recent years through his work as a comedian, he’s kept his private life almost completely under wraps. He is rumored to be dating or engaged to Kristin Taylor, a stop-motion animator.
