Twitter set its sights on another target for the cancelation chopping block: Ansel Elgort. It seems Ansel has as many faces as he does selfies and is in the process of being exposed on Twitter for racism AND for sexually assaulting an underage girl. Say goodbye to your weekend, Ansel’s PR team.
This all started when 26-year-old Ansel was accused of throwing around the N-word in high school. Newsweek says he was accused of mocking a Black student at New York City’s Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School. On an Instagram account, BlackatLaguardia, students shared their experiences of racism at school. One post seemingly referenced Ansel as the perpetrator of racial bullying:
People assumed this was the smug over-microwaved potato known as Ansel Elgort (because who else?) and immediately tagged him in. And once the story gained some traction on Twitter, another shitstorm came through.
A woman with the username ItsGabby posted a story about Ansel which allegedly happened when she was 17 and he was 20, so not that long ago. In December 2014, she slid into Ansel’s DMs and she says he responded, giving her his private Snapchat. Gabby claims they chatted until they eventually met up. Ah, meeting an underage girl through DMs: a Chris D’Elia Special. She went on to write that he took her virginity and when she cried in pain, he kept going and told her he needed to “break her in.” Excuse me while I clean up the puke from my floor.
Okay, I’m back. Gabby also accuses Ansel of trying to have a threesome with her and her underage friend and told her that if she told anyone it would ruin his career. That experience was so traumatizing for her that she ended up going to therapy. She also included a selfie they took together.

Twitter has been busy looking through Ansel’s life with a fine-tooth comb and they’ve already found red flags including allegations that he asked underage girls for nudes:

And another Twitter user accused Ansel of hitting on her when she was just 15:

Newsweek had previously reached out to Ansel’s people about his use of the N-word and an automated message replied they were out for Juneteenth, so they’re probably going to have a lot of emails when they back. The Wrap also reached out to Ansel’s people for a comment on Gabby’s claims and got nothing back so far.
Another day, another man accused of being a disgusting creep. And I bet Ansel Elgort is searching eBay to buy a time machine so he could go back to simpler times when everyone was just roasting his shitty music video.
