Roblox Sues YouTuber For $1.6 Million In Damages


Roblox Corporation is finally taking YouTuber Benjamin “Ruben Sim” Simon to court. The company accuses the content creator of attacking its players and employees for years. A case against the boy was sent to a court in California, in the United States.

According to the producer, Simon was banned from the game/social network years ago, but continues to find ways to create new accounts to access the game and harass players, including sexually.

Among the main charges the creator of Roblox against “Ruben Sim” are attempts to upload a semi-nude selfie, photos of Hitler and a sex game mode. In addition, he is said to have frequently used racist expressions and even threatened to start a shootout and kill employees at the company’s headquarters in San Mateo, California.

On his YouTube channel, Benjamin Simon has more than 700,000 subscribers and, according to Kotaku, makes at least $600 per video uploaded to his Patreon. In some recordings, the boy would appear sexually harassing other players.

Roblox Corporation also accuses him of making a false threat of terrorism during the Roblox Developers Conference, causing police to attend the venue and the event having to be temporarily halted. The company would have spent about $50,000 to investigate the false allegations.

If found guilty, the “joke” could be expensive for YouTuber: Simon could have to pay $1.6 million in damages and be court-ordered to stop harassing players and employees of Roblox Corporation.
