Over the past few weeks, reports of sexual harassment and sexual assault have made headlines across the country. From accusations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein to accusations against music producer The Gaslamp Killer, women of all backgrounds are coming forward to tell their stories of harassment and assault. Additionally, a social media campaign called “Me Too,” started by actress Alyssa Milano, has been spreading like wildfire, showing the widespread occurrence of such incidents.

In light of recent events, Alison Wonderland took to Twitter to share her personal story with sexual harassment in the workplace. The producer has been a fierce advocate for women’s rights and has previously spoken up about sexism and mental illness, using her platform to reach fans around the world and let them know they’re not alone.

In the following series of tweets, the producer tells the story of how she was sexually harassed by a former boss and how human resources failed to penalize him or investigate the accusation. She finds the man’s wife’s Facebook profile and sends her a message to let her know what happened.

At the conclusion of a recent performance, Flying Lotus came out in support of The Gaslamp Killer, who was accused of rape last week. The Gaslamp Killer is alleged to have drugged and raped two women in a Twitter post from October 12.

At his October 14 show, Flying Lotus wrapped things up with a message of support to the embattled producer and played one of his tracks for a finale. Before playing The Gaslamp Killer’s track, Flying Lotus told the crowd:

The internet is a fuckin’ liar. Ain’t nobody judge and jury but the fuckin’ law, okay?… Thank you guys so much for coming, let truth and justice have its day.

 

The Gaslamp Killer was a longtime associate of Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder label, though the label was quick to release a statement that they had not released any of DJ and producer’s music in some time and that he is not currently signed to the label.

It remains unclear at this time if the authorities are investigating the allegations against The Gaslamp Killer.

The Gaslamp Killer has since denied the veracity of the allegations.

Better known by his stage name The Gaslamp Killer, William Bensussen has been accused of rape in a recently published Twitter post that situates the alleged assault occurred four-years agoin 2013. According to the written account posted by a Twitter user named Chelsea (@chelseaelaynne), whose full name has not been disclosed, The Gaslamp Killer is said to have drugged Chelsea and her friend RaeAn during a party at the Standard Hotel. The artist allegedly handed each woman a drink that Chelsea presumes to have been drugged. “That was out first drink of the day. After that, everything is pitch black except for a few sharp but at the same time, blurry memories,” Chelsea writes.

Chelsea considers the sexual assault allegation to be confirmed by The Gaslamp Killer’s recent blocking of her Twitter account. “I would tag him, but today I noticed he has had me blocked, which pushed me over the edge and was the clearest admission of his guilt,” Chelsea stated, posting a picture of The Gaslamp Killer’s Twitter account, displaying a message reiterating that her account had indeed been blocked from viewing the DJ’s tweets.

While the sexual assault currently remains alleged, Chelsea followed her recent tweets with a screenshot of a direct message from The Gaslamp Killer, received by RaeAn. “Can we please talk right now? Your friend is accusing me of rape and I need you to back me up here,” the message reads.

The Gaslamp Killer camp has yet to make an official statement in response to these allegations. It is unclear at the time of publication if authorities are investigating these allegations.

UPDATE:

The Gaslamp Killer has released a statement of his own on Twitter where he denies the allegations and insists his interactions with the accuser and other alleged victim were consensual.
