Controversy: What Happened to Carter?
Carter Reynolds has been involved in several controversies. One of the biggest took place in June 2015, when a private sex video was leaked to the public through a Tumblr account featuring him and his ex-girlfriend Maggie Lindemann.
In the video, Carter’s genitals were visible since he took his pants off and tried to convince Maggie to have oral sex, even ordering her to do it and told her to pretend that the camera wasn’t there; Maggie didn’t want to. This is the type of scandal that could end the career of any public personality, as although he apologized to his fans and Maggie, Carter continued to make livestreams in which he trashed her. It didn’t take long for Maggie to respond, which led to a public altercation between them on Twitter. It all culminated during the following month at the VidCon event – he was eventually escorted out from attending it.
Many fans have condemned his behavior and called him a ‘rapist’, and as a result, Carter lost a huge number of followers, and companies he promoted ended collaboration with him, dropping their contracts. Following the sex scandal, Carter is active only on Twitter and Instagram.

The young social media sensation has short dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. He stands at a height of 5ft 8ins (1.73m), while he weighs around 145lbs (66kgs). His shoe size is 8.5 (US).
Carter Reynolds was romantically involved into an on-and-off relationship with Maggie Lindemann between 2014 and 2015 – she is also a social media personality. Following the end of their relationship, Maggie confirmed it and tweeted that Carter made her feel bad. In 2017, Carter started dating Demi Plaras, and they are still together. His current residence is in Los Angeles, California. Carter’s dream job is to perform as a stand-up comedian, although he once stated that he actually hates his fans.
