Underwear brand Andrew Christian has placed model and brand ambassador Topher DiMaggio on “indefinite suspension” while they investigate the many claims against him ranging from verbal harassment to sexual assault to rape.
Last month, adult star Tegan Zayne penned a long Twitter post that accused DiMaggio, who also works as an adult performer, of rape.
He claimed DiMaggio strongly pressured him into having sex the night before they filmed the scene.
Days later, two more men came forward to accuse DiMaggio of rape.
The following week, YouTuber Bryan Hawn and another man who does not wish to be identified shared stories of sexual assault and harassment at the hands of DiMaggio, one of which took place at an official Andrew Christian event in Seattle, WA.
In an emailed statement to Queerty, a representative for Andrew Christian wrote:
Andrew Christian does not condone sexual abuse or any other type of abuse or mistreatment to members of our community. We are taking allegations made by the victims very seriously. Accordingly, Topher is on indefinite suspension while we look into the matter. Late last year Andrew Christian started Project LOVE to help support various worthy charities in the LGBTQ community. Andrew Christian is committed to creating a safe welcoming environment for our LGBTQ family.
At the time of this post, DiMaggio is still prominently featured modeling product on the Andrew Christian website.
