As for Steffens, he has actually been implicated by former Method banner AnnieFuchsia of unwanted sexual advances and abusing his power to control, gaslight and eventually blacklist her.
As seen in Darrie’s e-mail reaction to somebody raising concerns over Josh’s behavior, which was similar to the org’s position with AnnieFuchsia, Method appears to close down accusations as a nuanced matter of “he said, she stated” without taking any actions against the implicated nor mounting any more examination.
Method statement on Josh Read:
https://t.co/S8t5eCfeua– Method (@Method) June 25, 2020 While no complete declaration has actually been launched about Steffens, the org’s declaration on Josh restates that the brand’s initial response to accusations against their affiliates is to “strongly encourage you to call the cops and make a report, so that a comprehensive – and appropriate – investigation can take place.”
I’ve been partnered with Method for quite a long time and we’ve been in settlements for a contract renewal for the
last few months. All things considered, I’ve concerned the decision to decline the deal and move on from Method and explore my choices as a complimentary agent.
— Esfand (@EsfandTV) June 25, 2020 Method’s most popular material creator, Esfand, has been participated in leaving the brand name by fellow streamers djarii, FloppyAdult, pandatv, Ziqo, Payo, MartinCreek, Ellesmere, Tips Out, Snowmixy and Graycen. Of staff members, auxidental has resigned from his business advancement role therefore has social networks manager, Shana ‘darrie’ Sarr, who has actually been linked in the company’s carelessness herself. While not totally devoted to a contract termination, streamers Whaazz, Naowh and Zizaran have all removed any Method branding from their social networks.
Multiple females, consisting of minor girls, have appeared just recently to publicly speak out about Josh’s habits. This follows a February 2019 Kotaku short article that discussed his control of underage girls and a June 2019 long-term ban of his Twitch channel by the app for unspecified factors.
They also clarify the agreement that the organization understood about the “level of Josh’s behavior” is “sickening and categorically false to read.”
Considering the installing evidence in years of screenshots supplied by various victims, the brand name’s content creators appear unswayed by this deflection and think the years of inaction belie a dishonest organizational character.
I took 24 hours to sleep and capture up on circumstances I had no idea about.
After some research I’ve chosen I will parting ways with the Method org instead of a bad grammar tweet I believed I ‘d make a video

While a lot of these “decisions” have yet to come to light, one must envision that more will emerge over the coming weeks– potentially in court, as Steffens apparently told AnnieFuchsia he may need to take “legal action” due to the fact that of her “tinkering [his] credibility.”
For now, Method is handling an exodus of their most popular developers and has indicated that they are focused on “revamping our internal policies.”
