Episodes Featuring Joey Ryan Pulled from Being The Elite YouTube Series
The producers of the Being The Elite series on YouTube announced that they are in the process of removing all episodes that featured Joey Ryan, who has been accused of multiple incidents of sexual abuse.
Hi guys and girls. We hope this video provides an escape, or even maybe makes you laugh during these tough times. We love you all.
Out of respect to the victims, we have began the process of taking down BTE videos which featured an accused serial sexual abuser. Our biggest regret is providing a platform unknowingly to such a despicable person. Our hearts go out to the victims and anyone else affected.
– From the BTE Team
Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp reported that the episodes removed at the time of his report were episodes #82, #83, and #109 which all featured Joey Ryan.
