Sky Williams Smash Bro. community involvement and sexual abuse allegations
In Sky Houses, there were artists, professional gamers, and the streamer’s friends who all lived together. They did most things together, including cleaning and partying.
In most cases, parties full of influencers and Super Smash Bros. icons were held there, and the tenants would stream tournaments or events. The places seemed pleasant and fun; however, it was an eye-opening experience that most shall live to remember for the tenants.
The Sky Williams drama began following allegations involving sexual harassment, paedophilia, and more, within the Smash Bros. Community. Most of those allegations, including those featuring D’Ron Maingrette, Richard King, and Gonzalo Barrios, happened in the Sky Houses, trying him to the entire issue.
To make matters worse, some of the roommates accused him of facilitating the type of abuses that were rampant within the Smash Bros. Community. Some alleged that the YouTuber was himself abusive.
Sky Williams banned the entry of visitors within the premises without his permission. He would sometimes do stupid things like threaten to break his roommates’ properties if one invited someone over without his consent.
In another instance, the streamer threatened to spend the money needed for food, utilities, and house payments on luxurious things to punish his roommates when they accidentally walked into his room. These incidents point towards a carefree and abusive character that would facilitate heinous activities under his roof.
Who does Sky Williams owe money to? Some roommates also accused him of owing them money. Jacqueline “Jisu” Choe, an artist with an extensive background in the Smash community and the tenant in the first Sky House, came out with a detailed account of issues in the house. She accused him of not paying her for the work he commissioned.
LS (Twitter name) accused the streamer of owing him $10,000 for two years.
I'm not retweeting as a sign of support or to condone his behavior. I'm tweeting this out for visibility, because I'm supposedly going to be addressed towards the end. Sky has owed me $10,000 for 2years after promising to pay me back in 8mo. Then proceeded to keep asking for more https://t.co/73dVpfcjcB

Another artist who lived in one of the Sky Houses, Melissa “ffsade” Yabumoto, alleged that the streamer had total control over the quality of one’s life in the house.
Sky Williams’ apology backlash
In a three-hour stream, the streamer attempted to address allegations about abuse of power, harassment, and sexual misconduct in his houses. However, he seems to have only made things worse.
Initially, he had planned to give a statement via TwitLong. He went against the initial plans and instead issued an apology via his Twitch account. When he started that live stream, it became clear that if he was going to address all the allegations, he was going to take time.
He spent about one and a quarter an hour addressing debt allegations, which mainly featured derailing information and text conversations. When it became clear that his apology was not going to come, some members of the Smash Bros. Community took action. They sent messages to Twitch asking them to bring the video down.
During the stream, viewers noticed the broadcast dropped in quality and was cut out. Many thought it was Twitch finally pulling the plug. However, it turned out to be one of the streamer’s housemates taking the router.
Following the backlash, the streamer said that the live stream was a massive mistake. He said,
I still think it’s my duty to release the full and complete statement of the Sky House and the activities therein. Nothing will ever justify the pain I’ve caused, but my hope is that it shows you that I am not a monster, though I’ve caused the same pain as one.
The live stream statement was a massive mistake. I elected to not listen to any comments to not get distracted and I ended up hurting even more people than I already have with my actions for the past 7 years. I did it live because I felt it was the only non edited way to do this.
