CEO of media company The Yogscast has stepped down from his role at the company amidst ongoing sexual harassment allegations.

Mark 'Turps' Turpin has been the company CEO since 2012. He is also a director of game code distribution platform Keymailer.

This comes just a couple of weeks after another Yogscast creator, Matthew 'Caff' Meredith, was ousted from the company as a result of allegedly using his position to manipulate fans. Multiple accusations against Turpin began to surface on Twitter soon after Meredith's dismissal.

Among these accusations were screenshots of Turpin attempting to solicit inappropriate photos from young girls across Snapchat and Instagram. Both accounts in question are run and operated solely by Turpin. It is believed that at least one of these individuals was under 18 years of age.
