disturbing behavior

Todrick Hall’s former videographer just made some explosive accusations and… wow

Jacob, Todrick Hall

A former videographer for Todrick Hall has gone public alleging exploitation and psychological abuse at the hands of the singer.

A Twitter user identified as “Jacob” and using the handle @bewilderberry took to the platform on February 14 to report his experience touring with Hall in 2018.

Jacob shared an image of himself following the tour, in which he looked thin and exhausted. In his post, he also claimed Hall never provided him meals, that his paychecks were frequently late, and that he was forced to load-in sets to venues–something a videographer would not be forced to do on a union production.

Throughout his series of posts, Jacob alleges that Hall played “mind games” with his crew and would “make an example” of anyone who complained by humiliating them in front of the rest of the company. He also alludes to even more “egregious” behavior on the part of Hall, but did not go into detail.

Jacob further claims to have stayed silent for four years out of fear of reprisal, writing, “I barely told anyone about how horrible my time with him was because I didn’t want to affect future work.”

This isn’t the first time Hall has come under fire for alleged mistreatment of his employees.

In 2019, several former dancers and crew for his music videos claimed he never paid them for their work. That same year, Hall’s former assistant Tommy McKissock said that he had witnessed Hall sexually harassing employees. McKissock also leaked documents alleging that Hall had engaged in a legal settlement involving sexual harassment.

At the time of this writing, Hall has not responded publicly to Jacob’s allegations. Queerty reached out to the singer for comment but did not hear back.
