Exposed: The Sickening Truth About Youtuber Exurb1a, Supported By Famous Male Youtubers
Rape, psychosis, breaking into a house… It’s the tip of the iceberg. Some of his victims I have been in touch with are too afraid to come forward. A “pathological liar and sociopath” they call him.
I personally will not stay silent, and will do everything in my power to warn people about this man, whom the police have been looking for but apparently can’t find. All while Exurb1a is regularly uploading online..

The Sickening Truth About Youtuber Exurb1a, Supported By Famous Male Youtubers
Exurb1a has been refusing to voluntarily make a statement to the police for almost 2 years now concerning rape, blackmail, stalking, assault and violent threats against me. This article is a follow-up. Please read my statement and the other articles before diving into this one.
I spoke out in January 2017, due to blackmail and threats from Exurb1a. I used to work with him - his fans even paid him money via Patreon so he could take planes to work with me. Soon after we started collaborating we also started dating. When I quit the collaboration after he assaulted me, he started stalking me, and anonymous accounts started to send me (death) threats and smeared my name online. Police have been wanting to speak with him but Exurb1a is nowhere to be found.
According to Exurb1a’s own digital history and deleted Reddit posts, this hasn’t been the first time police were interested in speaking with him.
A recovered post from youtuber Exurb1a, also known as author Alex McKechnie, shows a confession of Exurb1a where he claims he broke into a house while he was drunk due to being intoxicated and sleepwalking. In the Reddit post, Alex states the police found him.
Exurb1a tried deleting a couple of posts from his Reddit account, but the WayBackMachine managed to back-up some of his posts. In one of the deleted posts, Alex mentions that when he is ‘stressed out’ or a ‘little drunk‘, he sleeps in a sleeping bag and wears mittens to make sure he can’t undo it, due to sleepwalking.
In conversations between Alex and myself, he shared the same story. He also mentions in the conversation below that he suffers from psychosis.
In the deleted post on Reddit, Exurb1a describes how the police found him after he broke into a house due to being intoxicated and sleepwalking. Exurb1a describes how terrified the family that lived in the house was:
It’s not strange Alex deleted this post, considering I’ve filed multiple police reports against him for rape, assault, blackmail, threats, stalking, slander and defamation.
The deleted post is evidence of his psychosis, and how Exurb1a knew he might get psychotic more when alcohol is involved.
Any person suffering from a mental illness like psychosis, who knows they might get dangerous during psychosis, can face tougher punishment in court if they do not take any prevention to stop getting psychotic.
On the first night he raped me, he was drunk too. This makes the crimes he committed more severe: he cannot hide behind being ‘mentally ill’, because he knew he was psychotic, and didn’t take any measures to make sure others were safe to be around him or to prevent his psychosis.
Below, you can see Exurb1a and myself talk about the first rape and assault. In the conversation I describe how I had been vaginally bleeding that night on the toilet, while he passed out drunk, and I mention what it did to me emotionally.
Below, another conversation about 2 weeks before, where the night when Exurb1a assaulted me is discussed between us. Instead of acknowledging what happened, Alex tried to shame me for standing up for myself. Apparently telling the person who assaulted you that they abused you, and making them feel like a ‘sociopathic monster‘, is ‘hurtful’, according to youtuber Exurb1a.
The sickening thing is that while Exurb1a assaulted and raped me, he still jokes about abusing women in his youtube videos still. He has not taken the video below offline, in which he talks about killing an imaginary ex-girlfriend.
You might argue that the above ‘joke‘ isn’t about murdering a woman, but Exurb1a admitted himself it was. In the conversation below, Exurb1a and I discuss if it’s morally okay to ‘blow up’ a 3D cartoon GIF of a baby in a video. Exurb1a’s response:
“I just threw an imaginary woman off of a rooftop and everyone’s fine with that. Kill the baby.”
Exurb1a who jokes on Youtube about killing an ex-girlfriend, is especially disturbing considering he abused me and threatened me after he found out I was going to the police. When creators make jokes about abuse, murder and rape, these jokes aren’t funny anymore if the creator’s character in reality, reflects their personality and actions in reality.
Exurb1a said his friend ‘Foxx’ and some friends were going to kill me, to scare me, so I wouldn’t file a police report.
According to Exurb1a his friend Foxx was a “real sociopath” who “knifed down a dog once”. Exurb1a said even though he knew Foxx was a sociopath, they were great friends, because “he understood” him.
Exurb1a’s book Logic Beach: Part 1 could be dedicated to his best friend Foxx who knifed down a dog, considering the dedication reads:
“This one, with love, is for Bowles and the Dog Wrestler.”
Bowles refers to James Bowles, Exurb1a’s best friend. The ‘Dog Wrestler’ could possibly refer to Fox, Exurb1a’s second best friend who stabbed a dog to death with a knife. Both men - James and Fox - seem to have no problem having their names linked to a mentally ill rapist.
In the book, Exurb1a features the names of many people who donated money to him via Patreon. Chances are the majority of these supporters are minor fans.
Exurb1a willingly, without informing his fans about the rape case he is involved in, has linked people who gave money to him in black and white.
Essentially, he has trapped many of his fans who have been mentioned with their first and last names in his books. All these fans obviously want him to not be convicted now, considering then their name would be linked to a convicted rapist forever. This, is part of Exurb1a’s tactic, to force people to keep supporting him (and to have people target me). By linking people to him without telling them the truth, he’s making these people loyal to him. Furthermore, what he tries to trigger in his fans is narcissism, by making his fans furious with me, for speaking out. Now, people might link them to a rapist, so these fans have every motivation to try to silence and target me. I’ve been receiving death threats and targeted harassment from his fans since the day I spoke out and started to warn people about Exurb1a.
Coincidentally, Foxx, the friend who knifed down a dog according to Exurb1a, is the friend who participated in a conversation with Exurb1a and another friend, about (child) rape.
According to Foxx, ‘the weapon to end all wars’ is a dildo on a disturbing device that thrusts the dildo in violent motions. Exurb1a (Alex McKechnie) liked this post.
Online you can find video examples where the dildo-device is used to target women.
Evidence it's him/friend btw. Participating in (ch1ld) rape jokes after he assaulted /raped me, threatened me (he said this friend Fox would kill me), blackmailed me, incited violence on me on Reddit, etc etc etc. The list of @Exurb1a's abuse if long - and I WILL NOT STAY SILENT. pic.twitter.com/JZfdFWUbwY— Pieke Roelofs (@PhotoandGrime) May 4, 2018
A second friend named Dimitar Kyukchiev commented on the post:
The friend continuous in a second comment, talking about child rape:
This same friend commented on Exurb1a’s profile picture:
Exurb1a replied to this comment with:
Rape jokes between Exurb1a and his friends have become a topic since he raped me and I filed a police report against him. In the thread below, in the group Foreigners in Sofia & Friends, Exurb1a mentions to a woman “I’ll see what I can do”, to which his friend Foxx replies:
Do you think it's okay that youtuber @Exurb1a & his friends participate in rape jokes online, after he raped, assaulted, blackmailed, threatened and incited violence towards another youtuber? https://t.co/OERkIDkp5d@SusanWojcicki @TeamYouTube @amandapalmer#TIMESUPYOUTUBE— Pieke Roelofs (@PhotoandGrime) February 16, 2018
After I addressed these jokes from 2017 publicly on Twitter in February 2018, Exurb1a uploaded a video a month later, in March 2018, where he features a joke to which the answer is ‘grape’.
You can see Exurb1a pinned the top comment mentioning ‘grape’.
My guess? Exurb1a tried to cover up the rape joke between him and Foxx, by creating a joke surrounding ‘grape‘, so he could refer to this in the future.
Another dark and even more disturbing thing regarding the (child) rape jokes between Exurb1a and his friends?
Since I spoke out against Exurb1a in January 2017, I regularly received visits from users from Sofia (Bulgaria), who were marked for downloading child porn on IKNOWWHATYOUDOWNLOADED.COM. Sofia is the city where British youtuber Exurb1a and his friends mentioned in this post, live.
I messaged the guy who joked about child rape to Exurb1a about this, and called him out for supporting his rapist friend, and informed him of the the visitors on my website who had been marked for downloading child pornography.
Exurb1a knows his psychosis is influenced by alcohol. Yet, he publicly jokes about being an alcoholic.
In the Facebook past below, where Exurb1a illegally started using an image I took of him (probably to enrage me) again in 2017, you can see his friend Foxx and his own mother joking about his alcohol addiction.
Exurb1a seems to have absolutely no shame regarding his addictions, which he acknowledged make him more psychotic (and thus, dangerous). Below, you can see Exurb1a joke about drinking. Notice the scattered bottles around his table in the second video.
Exurb1a, who confessed to me being an alcoholic and that he abused drugs, thinks his fans should fund his addictions, which make him psychotic and more dangerous. Below, in the description of this video, he says:
Exurb1a is a predator with a perverted sexuality. In the conversation below, Exurb1a mentions his sister is sexually attractive.
Exurb1a doesn’t care whether you are a woman or man or what his relationship with you is. He mentioned his sister was ‘an absolute fox’, and told me he wasn’t bisexual, but still had anal sex with a man, during which he “gave”. It seems that to Exurb1a, people are just bodies for his sexual gratification.
In another deleted post from Exurb1a’s Reddit account, Alex McKechnie describes how he deceived his employer and pretended to be working while really doing other things. He also mentions how he masturbated at work on the toilets.
Next to this, Exurb1a has a fetish for women with severe mental issues, which he told me personally, and he stated in the conversation below again:
Exurb1a’s fetish for women with severe mental issues is evidence against him in my court case, considering he threatened and blackmailed me after he raped me so i would meet him to talk, after which he raped me again while i was hospitalised and drugged due to prescription medication. exurb1a then tried to frame me and used his fans and subreddit to target me while i was hospitalised. Exurb1a’s reasons for the abuse are directly linked to his fetish for women with severe mental issues: he tried to make me mentally unstable, because it turned him on.
Exurb1a attempted to make me mentally unstable by psychological, physical and sexual abuse.
He started the abuse early on already. During the time I was working with Exurb1a and got into a relationship with him, Alex started to abuse me verbally. Below, you can see how he attempts to shame me in a conversation for mentioning I didn’t like being called a cunt, bint and whore.
In the conversation you can see Exurb1a becomes short with me after I address I don’t enjoy the verbal abuse. You can see how I attempt to ‘make-up’ by being nice again, because Exurb1a made me feel like I was too sensitive. Later again, you can see him say ‘te quiero puta’ (I love you whore), a reference also to a Rammstein song.
In this period, 2016, I was quite gullible and naive, and I didn’t know how to deal with the abuse, because at the same time Exurb1a was love-bombing me also: he would sent love-letters, poems and music he made for me. He even dedicated a book to me:
One moment I would receive the most romantic things from him, the next moment, he would abuse me verbally, lie to me, and manipulate me.
In the conversation below, Exurb1a says he worked at the Large Hadron Collider also known as CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
CERN is one of the world's largest and most respected centres for scientific research in the world. CERN was the place where the existence of the Higgs boson was confirmed.
In 2017, I e-mailed CERN myself, to ask whether youtuber Exurb1a had worked for CERN. Firm stated in the e-mail below after a couple of e-mails that Alexander McKechnie (youtuber Exurb1a) never worked for CERN.
Not only did Exurb1a rape me while he collaborated together, and did Exurb1a exploit his employer as previously mentioned in this post while masturbating in toilets at work.. Exurb1a also attempted to get free things from artists on Reddit by promising them profits if they would ‘collaborate’ with him.
In this deleted Reddit post, he is called out by one of those artists. The deleted comments from Exurb1a were recovered with the WayBackMachine. By matching the different timezones, I was able to put them in the correct order, and show Exurb1a’s response when someone is ‘sorry to disappoint’.
Exurb1a has been known to exploit other artists without their consent. In 2016, Exurb1a published the video ‘How To Pick Up Girls On Facebook’ (mirror), a video in which he used the images of devon mayson without asking her consent.
In the video, Exurb1a stole images on singer-songwriter Devon Mayson. He made a fake persona based on her images called ‘Heather Fowler’, a girl he communicated with in the video. Exurb1a describes how he tries to ‘pick her up’ by demeaning her and calling her chubby.
The video went viral, causing Exurb1a to gain more fame, subscribers, views, and donations. It was uploaded on third party websites as well.
When I found out Exurb1a had stolen the pictures (which he told me), I told him this was illegal. Exurb1a laughed and said he’d be “pretty fucked” if the girl found out.
Soon, the girl in question, Devon Mayson, did find out. Exurb1a didn’t respond to her until she threatened legal action. She demanded the video to be taken down. Exurb1a, who was making money due to the viral video, refused to delete it according to Devon. Instead, Exurb1a credited her. Someone found out by reaching out to her:
I reached out to Devon myself on Twitter, where she confirmed the story.
Exurb1a’s channel got famous through vote-manipulation on Reddit and by abusing female artists.
It might not come as a surprise when I mention to you Exurb1a was active in the ‘RedPill’ community. He spoke to me about this, and shared how he “learned a lot” from RedPill. RedPill has been described by some people as an internet subculture of “angry, thirsty, mostly white, conservative males who blame all their romantic and social failures on women”.
An interesting article about Red Pill you can research is Spitting Out The Red Pill: Former Misogynists Reveal How They Were Radicalised Online, by Amelia Tait. In the article “Subscribers of Reddit's most notoriously sexist subreddit explain what happens when you change your mind.”
Unfortunately I do not have any evidence conversations between Exurb1a and myself where he describes Red Pill and how he used to use the subreddit (many of our conversations happened on audio on Skype or in person).
I did however manage to recover a deleted post from Exurb1a, where it shows he was active in the /r/seduction subreddit, giving advice to other men about seducing women.
In the post, Exurb1a compares humans to turkeys. He also “strongly” recommends a pdf called “The Book Of Pook”.
Online, The Book Of Pook has been described as a result of the PUA (pick-up artist) movement. The PUA movement has been described as “a collection of psychological techniques for pressing women’s buttons in order to get them to be attracted to you”.
In the page below, The Book Of Pook’s message was that “PUA techniques were too simple, and focused on external manipulations (…)”.
Pick-up artists and RedPillers have been accused and exposed for their misogyny. Youtuber Exurb1a has been exposed in this article as a mentally ill and psychotic narcissist, who exploits, abuses, and even rapes people to gain fame.
Exurb1a is a danger to both women and men, and children. Youtube blocked my rape story about Exurb1a, and only unblocked it after outrage.
Youtuber Exurb1a is still active on youtube, and has been supported by the following white men, who have not taken any measures to warn the youtube community about this predator after they were warned about him:
Kurz Gesagt - In a Nutshell
Everybody who stays silent about Exurb1a while having supported him, is complicit in putting men, women and children in danger.
A petition was started by a 12-year-old boy to have Exurb1a banned from youtube, to protect children and fans from this abuser. You can show your support by signing this petition here.
I encourage every person who has ever supported Exurb1a to not stay silent anymore.
Below, a transcript of the Reddit post Exurb1a deleted, where he talks about being caught by the police after being drunk and ‘sleepwalking’:
I Believe you— Rosanna Arquette (@RoArquette) May 2, 2018
I’ll also say that I do not and will never endorse any perpetrator of sexual harassment. I am so sorry for whatever wrong this man has done you. I’ll be in touch post viewing the video.— Seth Fishman (@sethasfishman) March 2, 2018
I too believe you; and I hope that retweeting will help— RevSmith (@RevSmith0990) November 29, 2018
I wasn't drunk both times as well.... In fact, the second time I was drugged on prescribed medication by the hospital, and left the hospital to talk to him because he threatened and blackmailed me.— Pieke Roelofs [PhotoandGrime.com] (@PhotoandGrime) March 13, 2019
There may be some semblance of peace in the future, a form of solace and contentment perhaps but the good fight rages on, we need people like you, survivors, fighters, resisters, I believe in you, best wishes to you and yours, all the love for you friend— Jason (@QuiteBloodyLazy) March 3, 2019
I’m so glad that Facebook have banned alt right fascist #TommyRobinson who recently provoked his followers into harassment of a rape crisis service. Hope @YouTube follows the example and also bans wanted alleged rapist on the run @Exurb1a people shouldn’t profit from Rape Apology— SebastianPotter (@SebastianPott10) February 26, 2019
Well, this is sickening. One of my (now ex)favourite youtubers has been accused of rape, stalking, and abuse with *substantial* receipts. Gonna be unsubscribing at the very least until the case goes through the courts. Don't want to pay his legal bills.https://t.co/K2M8McGoGr— Mother's Basement (@G0ffThew) December 9, 2018
And keep fighting for truth and justice. Love to you thank you.— Rosanna Arquette (@RoArquette) September 3, 2018
God bless you for your courage and strength to stand up to him.— Rosanna Arquette (@RoArquette) August 4, 2018
I'd really appreciate it if you guys could help signal boost this, and I'm speaking as someone who once outright loved Exurb1a's content when I say that. He stands accused of some ghastly things (with lots of evidence to back it up) and now the police are looking for him. https://t.co/rgsT66F48y— Mother's Basement (@G0ffThew) December 20, 2018
Disgusting— Rosanna Arquette (@RoArquette) August 13, 2018
Dear @PhotoandGrime , when I accidentally clicked on a thread about your experience with Exurb1a, I did not believe my eyes. I was a fan of his and I admired his work blindly, oblivious of the shit behind the curtains. You have proof and I hear your voice. I believe you.— Natália (@natkakomi) January 4, 2019
Youtuber @exurb1a just uploaded another video, meanwhile, Dutch police confirmed they have been looking for him but can't find him. @TeamYoutube is complicit in supporting a RAPIST. PLEASE STOP THIS. #TimesUpYoutube @SusanWojcicki @PatreonSupport @YouTube https://t.co/fc5HNH5tZR— Zara‘s Comics 🎈 (@zarascomics) January 22, 2019
.@TeamYouTube, why are you allowing accused rapist @Exurb1a to post monetized videos when he’s been on the run from Dutch police for nearly eight months? I can think of few companies who would be comfortable with facilitating a contractor’s flight from authorities. https://t.co/G4lSesYih7— feminist next door (@emrazz) January 22, 2019

Welp I had no idea about this and tbh didn't care for anything else he'd done other than that Sci-Fi short about the AI.— Tetraquark (@tetraquarky) March 11, 2019
What a terrible person, and disappointing reaction from other YouTubers as well. Kill your heros indeed
Yikes, people are so ignorant.— Kieran (@SirKatticus) March 12, 2019
I love(d) Exurb1a. His content is so good and well done. Unfortunately he's a fucked up person, and he's done some really horrible shit. I told a few commenters on YouTube, and lo and behold, they're all idiots who are trying to justify what he did.
She has substantial proof. Hence going forth to court against him. How stfu and find something better to do— charl (@CharlWadex) March 2, 2019
Wondering if you would care to make a statement on rapist Youtuber Exurb1a, and possibly withdraw your endorsement - given your vocal support for him in the past? https://t.co/r3PGkS6zZO— SamuJones (@samu_jones) November 20, 2018
Just incase anybody knows exurb1a know that he is Rapist and an abuser #JusticeforPieke— Ironic Christian (@Ironichristian1) September 22, 2018
@Exurb1a knows exactly what he did. Pieke deserves justice, but hes too cowardly to even *sincerely* apologize. Doesn't see anything wrong with being a rapist. So the question is, do you?— LippyLibby the Feminist (@Lizseeds0311) May 14, 2018
Please stop giving a platform to abuser and rapist @Exurb1a— Ashish (@AshishChauhan_) February 13, 2018
Everyone, @photoandgrime has been silenced by twitter after speaking out against her rapist youtuber @exurb1a and his fans who said she should die and kill herself.

Why the hell would people do this, when they know neither the rapist nor victim personally. The facts and common sense speak for themselves. To those who are supporting Exurb1a and financing this sick behaviour, you should be ashamed of yourselves!— Chris Doyle (@realChrisMDoyle) December 2, 2018
Just finding out about all this, YouTube needs to be held accountable for allowing his videos to stay up. It's been long enough now that @PhotoandGrime needs some justice and deserves some peace!— 🌸 Holo 🌸 (@lackaholo) February 20, 2019

.@PhotoandGrime I believe you. And I am deeply ashamed that some prominent members of the #ActuallyAutistic community haven’t stood up for you. I’m so tired of the silence and intentional looking-the-other-way that happens in the autism sphere. #MeToo— Sara Luterman (@slooterman) July 31, 2018
I don’t care who tries to bully or harass me (as I hate cyber bullies & know they’re nothing more than cowards hiding behind a keyboard), I believe you Pie and I’m proud of you for speaking out & and going after your rapist💕— Vanessa Denise Capella (@SexnerdsVanessa) July 23, 2018
You are harassing because weather you choose to accept it or not the evidence is there. FACT that's why @Exurb1a is hiding. If you feel so strongly about it then tell MR Rapist himself to stop hiding. See that tells me Alex knows it all true, if not why hide?— Heather Danielle 💜 (@heatherboggs1) May 16, 2018
