What He Confessed In A Video Online Got Him 12 Years In Prison…
A Spanish influencer with over 26 million followers on TikTok has caused widespread anger after saying he tricks of not using condoms by claiming to sexual partners that he is sterile.
Naim Darrechi, 19, is arguably the most successful social media influencer in Spain. He claimed to find sex “difficult with a condom” and so never uses them.
Darrechi said in an interview with Spanish YouTuber, Mostopapi:
“It’s weird that I haven’t got any of them pregnant, so I’m always going to start ending up inside, without any problem. And nothing’s ever happened. I’m starting to think I have a problem. So I tell them 'relax, I'm sterile'. It's true," he said, as the interviewer laughed.
On social media and in the mainstream media, his remarks were met with anger from many women and girls, with some pointing out that he could be passing on a sexually transmitted disease while others called him a “disappointment” and “disgusting.”
On Instagram, Darrechi subsequently said:
"I want to apologise, really. Sometimes I don't realise the responsibility that is mine... I made a comment that really is out of place and that is not right. Sometimes I say things and sometimes I exaggerate, but here it's just crazy what I said, I wish it had been cut at the edit and no one would ever have heard it."
Montero and others pointed out that the TikTok star’s actions constitute sexual abuse under the current laws governing the nation of Spain. Now it is up to prosecutors to charge Darrechi with sexual assault and take him to court in an effort to lock him away for the horrible things he did to women and girls.
“Taking off a condom or ejaculating inside someone without consent is now sexual abuse, and the #OnlyYesisYes law will recognize it as assault,” Montero wrote in a Twitter post referencing the bill. “Bragging to 26million followers about something like this reflects the urgency of centering consent. We will inform the prosecutor’s office.”
Instead of apologizing for abusing numerous women, he complained that his remark hadn’t been edited out of the YouTube video. Now he will have to face legal consequences for tricking women into having unprotected sex with him by spreading lies about his ability to have children.
The new bill will be debated by Parliament in September and moves to reclassify all non-consensual sex as rape – and since he lied to have unprotected sex with his victims, he could become a poster child for the new law.
According to reports, the 19-year-old could face up to twelve years behind bars.
