On 27 April, 2020, it was just regular for the 19-year-old Josh Richards until he joined Griffin Johnson on Instagram live, and it went in an unexpected direction. At first, things were perfect, with hundreds of viewers tuning in to their conversation, but then they took a disturbing turn when Josh dropped his phone while still recording him. He stripped off his jeans, flashed himself to the audience by sitting straight onto a phone. The live video spread like wildfire over various platforms, including YouTube and Twitter, which allowed countless people around the globe to watch this event occur.
The live stream was met with a range of feedback in the comments section. Some fans were extremely happy to see Josh strip, while some felt very awkward and called out Josh for his improper movement towards minors who might have been watching as well. Many were especially upset because many underage people watched the broadcast on chance.
The audience not only censured him for exposing himself, though they also made fun of him. Some have even shared zoomed-in shots on Instagram as well as trolled Josh for doing this publicly. However, after that scandal, Josh published an apology on 28 April. He posted a long statement on Twitter and asserted that the entire situation was unintentionally “oozed.”
Additionally, Richard stated that “I have a duty because of the fans I’ve been blessed with; last night I took benefit of that. Next time I will strive harder to think before proceeding. It was never my aim to have flowed what got shown; however, it is now clear how harmful this can be, so in the future, I will ensure nothing like this happens again.”
