Christine Weston Chandler, the YouTuber known as Chris Chan, has been arrested on suspicion of incest.

Warning: the content in this article may be upsetting to some readers.

Chandler, 39, founder of the Sonichu and Rosechu web comics, is being held in the Henrico County jail in Virginia.

Police detained the YouTuber, who maintains a channel with 50,000 subscribers, on Sunday (1 August) after a leaked phone conversation spread online. The authenticity of the recording hasn’t been confirmed.

In the eight-minute audio someone purporting to be Chandler tells her friend about having sexual relations with her elderly mother, Barbara, who is believed to have dementia.

The person said to be Chandler begins by stating “the incest fanfics have come true”, before claiming that “we’ve been doing it every third night” since 27 June.

The shocking recording was posted on Kiwi Farms on Friday (30 July) alongside a text said to be from Chandler, which read: “Barb and I just had another romp in the hay.”

The message and audio immediately went viral online, making “Chris Chan” a trending topic on Twitter.

“There is drama in the air today,” Chandler tweeted on Friday. “Each and every one of you all are encouraged to withdraw from any and all dramas, gossip, rumours and whatever else will, and already has, approached your way today.”

This was her final public post before Sunday, when a livestream from the alt-right podcaster Ethan Ralph appeared to show Chandler’s arrest outside a hotel in Charlottesville.

Standing in handcuffs, she told him: “Everything is going to work out.”

In a press release, the Greene County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that they “received information involving sex crimes against a family member” on Saturday, and an investigation led to an arrest warrant being issued.

Engaging in sexual intercourse with one’s father or mother is a Class 5 felony in Virginia.

Over the past 13 years Chandler, who according to Newsweek came out as trans in 2016, has become well known for her outlandish behaviour offline, which has often piqued the interest of trolls.

In October 2011, she and her mother were arrested after her mother hit the manager of a game store with her car; they paid a fine and underwent community service and a year of probation.

Later in 2014, Chandler was arrested and barred from GameStop after she maced an employee who had asked her to leave. She was charged with assault and given a 180-day suspended jail sentence.

Coronavirus cases driven by the delta variant are rising in a “very steep fashion” across the United States and may double in the coming weeks to 200,000 cases a day, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday.

The country could be “in trouble” entering the fall unless a large portion of unvaccinated Americans decide to get the shots, with the real possibility a new variant emerges that challenges the effectiveness of existing vaccines, the chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden said in an interview with McClatchy.

“What we’re seeing, because of this increase in transmissibility, and because we have about 93 million people in this country who are eligible to get vaccinated who don’t get vaccinated — that you have a significant pool of vulnerable people,” said Fauci, who is the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

“And so when you look at the curve of acceleration of 7-day averages of cases per day, it is going up in a very steep fashion,” he said.

As of Aug. 2, the 7-day rolling average of daily COVID-19 cases was 84,389, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The highest number of cases recorded in a single day was 295,880 on Jan. 7. By June 14, reported cases had plummeted to 8,069.

“Remember, just a couple of months ago, we were having about 10,000 cases a day,” he said. “I think you’re likely going to wind up somewhere between 100,000 and 200,000 cases.”

The Biden administration has referred to the current outbreak as a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” as the vast majority of people hospitalized with COVID-19 have not taken the shots.

But recent data shows that vaccinated people who still get infected with the delta variant also have high viral loads and can spread it to others, even when they aren’t showing symptoms or are experiencing mild disease. “We’re now dealing with, really, a different virus,” he said.

Fauci is hopeful that full approval of Pfizer and Moderna’s two-dose vaccines by the Food and Drug Administration, expected in a matter of weeks, will lead to a “bump” in vaccination rates.

Vaccines take time to work — the two-dose shots are spaced out, and a person is not considered fully vaccinated until two weeks after their second dose — and so the impact would not be immediate to blunt the current surge, Fauci said.

“Even if we vaccinated everyone today, we’re not going to see an effect until the middle to end of September,” he said.

Fauci said that data shows people infected with the delta variant have viral levels “about 1,000 times higher in quantity” than were recorded in people who were infected with the alpha variant, also known as the U.K. variant, which earlier this year became predominant in the United States.

Studies have emerged in recent weeks indicating that vaccinated individuals are at risk of “long COVID” — a series of conditions associated with infection such as fatigue, shortness of breath and loss of smell that can last for weeks or months — even if they are largely protected from severe illness and death, Fauci said.

“We already know that people who get breakthrough infections and don’t go on to get advanced disease requiring hospitalization, they too are susceptible to long COVID,” Fauci said. “You’re not exempt from long COVID if you get a breakthrough infection.”

Despite the extraordinary contagiousness of the delta variant, it can still get worse, Fauci said.

He fears the virus is being given “ample” opportunity to morph even further into a deadlier strain that could diminish the effectiveness of vaccines. Continued spread provides the virus more opportunities to mutate, he said.

“If we don’t crush the outbreak to the point of getting the overwhelming proportion of the population vaccinated, then what will happen is the virus will continue to smolder through the fall into the winter, giving it ample chance to get a variant which, quite frankly, we’re very lucky that the vaccines that we have now do very well against the variants — particularly against severe illness,” Fauci said. “We’re very fortunate that that’s the case. There could be a variant that’s lingering out there that can push aside delta.”

“If another one comes along that has an equally high capability of transmitting but also is much more severe, then we could really be in trouble,” he said. “People who are not getting vaccinated mistakenly think it’s only about them. But it isn’t. It’s about everybody else, also.”

“I’m over the stupid conspiracies.”

Christine Weston Chandler — also known as YouTube star Chris Chan — was reportedly arrested on suspicions of incest.

MISSING MOM'S BODY FOUND WEIGHED DOWN AT THE BOTTOM OF POND, POLICE BELIEVE SHE WAS TORTURED BEFORE DEATH

“On July 31st, 2021 the Greene County Sheriffs Office received information involving sex crimes against a family member, who resides in the Ruckersville area,” a press released posted on the Facebook account for the Greene County Sheriff's Office confirmed. “Both the victim and the suspect reside in Greene County. Based on the investigation, an arrest warrant was issued.” The statement also noted, “Christine Chandler is currently being held without bond at the Central Virginia Regional Jail.”

The Virginia native created the popular character Sonichu. According to Insider, Chandler lost her father in 2011 due to heart failure — and in 2014, an extension cord burnt down her family's home.

Chandler took to Twitter on Friday, July 30, and shared a card selected from Collective, a community-created card game. "There is drama in the air today," the artist tweeted alongside the image. "Each and every one of you all are encouraged to withdraw from any and all dramas, gossip, rumors, and whatever else will, and already has, approached your way today."

Following Chandler's arrest, a video circulated of the vlogger — who has more than 50,000 subscribers on YouTube — being arrested in which she told the person taping her, "Everything is going to work out."

Vlogger Chris Chan arrested for alleged incest with mom suffering from dementia

New York Post 04 August, 2021 - 02:46pm

By Lee Brown

A controversial vlogger has been arrested in Virginia for incest — after audio was leaked online of her allegedly confessing to regular sex with her dementia-ridden mom, according to reports.

Comic character creator Christine Weston Chandler, known online as Chris Chan, was busted in Richmond on Sunday and later transferred to Central Virginia Regional Jail, where she is being held without bail, officials confirmed to The Post.

Greene County Sheriff’s Office confirmed in a Facebook post that Chandler was charged with one count of incest, calling Chandler “he” despite the trans vlogger’s preferred pronouns.

Her arrest came a day after the sheriff’s office “received information involving sex crimes against a family member,” the sheriff’s office said, confirming Chandler and the alleged victim both live in the county.

“This is an ongoing investigation with additional charges pending,” the sheriff’s office said.

The 39 year old — who is also known online as Sonichu — already faces up to 12 years in prison if convicted of the single count of incest, ABC7 noted.

The arrest came after a taped phone call was leaked allegedly catching Chandler confessing to having sex with her 79-year-old mother, whom she repeatedly featured in her online postings and has revealed suffers from dementia, according to Insider as well as local ABC station.

Calling it “incest fan” fiction come true, the person on the tape who is alleged to be Chandler said that her mom “made the first move,” admitting she was “partially confused” and “it took a few tries” to get right, the reports said.

They would go on to have sex “every third night” — but had an “open relationship,” the voice purported to be Chandler told an unidentified woman in the clip.

The audio suggested Chandler — who ABC7 said is autistic — admitted it happened when she was “very, very horny” — and that “God … said it was OK.”

Chandler appeared to be aware of her impending arrest in her last Twitter post on Friday.

“Today’s Collective Card, appropriately, is Turning In,” she wrote, featuring an image from Collective, a community-created card game.

“There is drama in the air today. Each and every one of you all are encouraged to withdraw from any and all dramas, gossip, rumors, and whatever else will, and already has, approached your way today,” she wrote.

Her arrest had been filmed by blogger Ethan Ralph, showing her led away from a Regency Inn in handcuffs as someone shouted at her, “Go to church!”

“I am compliant, I am good like this, Chandler called out to those filming her being detained by three officers.

“I am Chris Chan Sonichu, your Goddess Blue Heart and I continue to stand strong and I maintain everything with CWCville and my Sonichu, Rosechu and everybody,” she shouted of her cartoon creations.

“I keep in good faith — everything is going to work out,” she shouted — even joking that it “felt good” when one of the officers frisked her around her chest.

Chandler has featured her mother on her social media pages several times over the years, most recently on July 11, when she shared photos of her sporting a new haircut.

“Barbie Chan got a styling haircut. I did that; first time cutting anyone’s hair. It looks really good,” she wrote.

In May, Chandler shared a series of photos of her mother as a younger woman as part of a tribue.

“Hi, Mom. Remember, everyone, regardless of situation, your Mom, Mother, or Motherly Figure had a life and past of her own back in the day before you came along. She has gone through a lot for not only you and yours, but herself as well,'” Chandler wrote.

The pair were previously arrested 10 years ago after Barbara hit a local game store manager with her car, leading them to pay a fine and undergo community service and a year of probation, The Sun said.

Chandler was also given a suspended jail sentence for Macing a GameStop worker in 2014, the outlet said.
