Whitney Cummings, who has worked with the comedian, Chris D’Elia, in the past, is now addressing the accusations against him. Just Jared said today that in her series, Whitney and Chris played an unhappy unmarried couple.
Followers of Chris D’Elia know that over the last few days, Chris has been lit up on social media for allegations of “grooming” young women. Although, when one looks at the reports, it appears as though Chris had been speaking with teenage girls through Instagram. The term, “grooming,” has a different meaning.
On her Twitter account on the 20th of June, Whitney dropped a statement in which she called it “predatory behavior” and said that it was the type of abuse of power that she wouldn’t stand for. Whitney wrote about the allegations in her Twitter post below:

Cummings went on to say that women and girls should be able to be a fan of a performing artist without being targeted for a sexual relationship. The star added that it was the adult’s responsibility to behave as an adult.
In case you missed it, Suzy Kerr reported on the 17th of June, 2020, that there exists a growing list of women on the internet who have accused the comedian of being a creep. Reportedly, he has been accused of soliciting nudes and other pictures from minors.
Perhaps somewhat ironically, the stand-up comedian recently appeared in the second season of a Netflix series, You, in which he portrays a comedian who tries to date underage girls. People online now are saying that the series is becoming a lot closer to reality than what was originally expected.
It all started on the 16th of June when a woman on Twitter named Simone Rossi, spoke on the irony of Chris D’Elia starring as a much older man interested in young girls. She posted a number of screenshots of direct messages between her and the comedian when she was just 16-years-old.
She said that D’Elia, who was in his thirties at the time, must’ve known she was still in high school because her IG was littered with photos and videos of high school football games and other events.
