'You' Actor & Comedian Chris D'Elia Responds to Allegations of Sexual Harassment & Grooming

Chris D’Elia is responding to allegations of sexual harassment and grooming of underage young women.

“I know I have said and done things that might have offended people during my career, but I have never knowingly pursued any underage women at any point.” the 40-year-old disgraced comedian told TMZ after going viral from many women telling their stories. “All of my relationships have been both legal and consensual and I have never met or exchanged any inappropriate photos with the people who have tweeted about me.”

He added, “That being said, I really am truly sorry. I was a dumb guy who ABSOLUTELY let myself get caught up in my lifestyle. That’s MY fault. I own it. I’ve been reflecting on this for some time now and I promise I will continue to do better.”
