YouTuber 'Onision', Gregory Jackson, Accused of Predatory Grooming

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2021


Onision has been profoundly disliked by the YouTube community for years, despite maintaining millions of subscribers across his multiple channels. There have been many calls to remove Onision from the platform completely, though no action has ever officially been taken. This is nothing new. Though now, it seems, the controversial personality is watching himself become the digital pariah of the year and reacting accordingly.


Onision is best known for his objectifying content and controversial reputation. He rates pictures that young women submit to him, gives his opinions on their bodies, and comments on other YouTubers. Onision's content often leaves viewers with a particular ick-factor.


Onision originally became famous for making a parody video called Banana Song (I'm a Banana) that gained traction after being shown on the television show "Tosh.0".


Sarah, a former friend and partner shared her story with Chris Hansen who collected statements involved with Onision and streamed them online. Sarah alleges that she began a friendship with Onision's partner Kai. Sarah became a fan of Onision as a 12-year-old, and began interacting with Kai on social media when she was just 14. By the time she was 15, Greg and Kai invited Sarah to their home in Washington, and when she turned 16, Sarah’s mother signed over power of attorney to Kai, and Sarah moved in with them. For years, a tumultuous relationship with the couple ensued, during which she lived in their home at various times. Sarah claims “I was just like a toy for them.” After she finally left their house in 2019 at age 19, Sarah publicly alleged years of grooming, inappropriate sexual behavior and abuse that she claims shook her to her core and changed her life forever. Onision denied the allegations.


Onision's videos are still being monetized. YouTube did not immediately return request for comment.
