"A 15-year-old YouTube skateboard star has been arrested and charged with committing lewd acts on a child under 14, along with his 22-year-old manager and another skater, 27. Steven Fernandez, who’s nicknamed “Baby Scumbag,” is accused of luring a 12-year-old girl by promising to put her on a nonexistent MTV special if she performed sex acts.
Fernandez has over 700,000 subscribers on YouTube and one million Instagram followers, and gained fame as a baby skater when he was just 13. TMZ was first to report that he was arrested Wednesday along with manager Jose Barajas, 22, and another skater, 27-year-old Keelan Dadd. A press release from the Los Angeles Police Department refers to Fernandez as a “prime mover” in a conspiracy to exploit the 12-year-old, and says they are seeking more victims."

So I don't really care about Steven. He's out, but what about Keelan. What's up with him. He seemed pretty cool
He was one perverted 15 year old . Precocious. Definitely needed help
Stop judging u stupid shit
Now I know why I haven't seen any Keegan Dadd footy recently.
this is actually utterly pathetic
I really don't see how you can put the blame on the kid. He's been basically raised by 20+ year old losers since he was 10, and they obviously were the ones condoning and suggesting it.
Steven only did it for the views
Steven has been proven innocent.
HOLLY SHIT HE HAS 6 MORE YEARS OF JAIL TIME
Shut up there is nothing wrong with him
What do you expect? He's learning from the adults.
Don't blame scumbags parents they do discipline him for the things he does but he had to keep his persona as baby scumbag so he could get the money his family needed bc his dad had like cancer in his eye I think but Ik he had cancer... && but I don't think this is entirely true bc a lot of girls just wanna do things with scumbag like that and I think she offered it to him then turned around for fame and said things bc the girl did not look 12 and is suddenly blowing up on Instagram
Please remove this video, it was proven that he didn't do shit..
He grew up in Compton
U guys are assholes
They only do this for views
stfu he got bigger than all of u guys he didn't rape nun
This is some bullshit he is just a savage
lil cloud gang
Praying for Steven
That girl lied
bruh I knew babyscumbag we went to the same middle school
He really is nasty wtf
he didn't do anything like tf
the people in the video need to shut up cause those are all lies and they are trying to make Steven look bad and make him lose his fans
You guys hating lmao
In my scul 13 yro girls talking bout bodies if yk wat i mean
I'm sitting near steven in the same classroom right now
Everybody here defending Steven and his buds are 12-15 year olds smh
Baby scumbag, hmmmmm, haven't heard that name in years haha
he didn't do anything he was proved innocent the girl lied so get ur facts straight before u judge
why is STEVEN IN JAIL
Honestly I want to punch the dude that said "Might Be A Clue"
There's always a bunch of idiots in the comments. One of the downfalls of YT.
Guess what he was falsely accused
And all bcuz of Isabella
I know this was old but Did they ever have proof or just word from what the girl said bc she CLEARLY wanted attention so it seems as if she would just say all this for attention.
Bro they judge him on his nickname these people are lame
Dammit now these young turds videos are gonna be showing up on my suggestions.
I remembered this dude outta no where and searched him up, I come to find this.. craaaazy
Shut your dumbass mouth up
Can y'all really stfu steven is not like that y'all just have mental issues
Who told yall keelan Dadd and Barajas hooked up with a 12 year old, the only one who was sexually involved here was Steven.
The girl lied
so Is He Out?
He sure lived up his reputation
He doesn't touch girl tf
watch all is stupid fans to still support him
this is so funny to me
I remember last time I saw him was in 2018 he was looking really down but he kept skating and took some slams I knew he wouldn’t come back to the park for a while and he hasn’t came back since
Yeah, I've known of the kid for a very long time (years now).... I always thought it was sad to see all the provacative acts he purposed on his channel at a young age.
wtf he did nothing this lil12 year old kid lies so stfu stupit rods4l✋
He's got girls 18+ for him and shit, why would he exploit a 12yr old for nothing, he doesn't get anything out of it, someone who owns a celebs social media accs would ideally be their 1st accused, it's a no brainer really
That bitch was 14 when he was 15 get y’all lying ass up
Can you please, please, please update this story. Much of the information is now different now. Steven was proven innocent.
Wait is that why he quit skating? Did hi sponsors leave him because of this?
The people who ruined Steven's career
Well if she said yes it isn't exactly sexual explicit they are both kids anyway
keelen dadd is innocent.
Your surprised? Every kid got a phone!
he was proven innocent and the dude who said "might be clue" lol
mmmm no bitch
This guy reminds me of John Madden
LOL ! FUCKERS
that is not true the girl was living and i know this was a long time ago but us scummy's know its all a lye
Um I'm 12 but I'm not weird like he was
Boo this is bullshit and fake all people know bitch
tbh i dont know what happened but this is what i say people now days r fucked up i think tht steven never tried doing tht knowing people now im guessin tht steven didnt do what the girl wanted so the girl got mad and acused him of tht so idk
this is bull shit
THIS IS BULLSHIT
the real blame is on the adults...that kids just a savage
If y'all watch his video He talks about everything
you guys are pieces of shit he is under age
So did the two older dudes know her age or did Steven just pick up a random girl?
Ahh she said touching them without their consent lol
did the girls parent's get arrested ?
given sexual activity for favors or gaining $ is prostitution.
hope she's getting professional help ( cps) .
You guys are dickheads
I know that was a long time ago but whatever
I USED TO TEXT W HIM LMAO he would ask for "pics" but my dumbass thought he meant selfies lmaoo
Like usual cenk is dead wrong. Again.
Old farts need to get their head out of their ass and have some knowledge about the people they talk about on their own miserable youtube show
The guy sounds jealous
I know this is old news, but I just now kind of stumbled upon this because we watched a PBS documentary that featured this kid in Philosophy class.
I was shocked when I saw how this kid went from innocent skate videos to "prank" videos. His fame blew up as he grabbed the butts of random women on the street. He was being endorsed by advertisers to sexually harass people! Now look where this has gotten him. It's terrible that he could face juvie and probably have his life ruined forever and that he was taken advantage of by corporate greed, but innocent women were getting hurt and would only continue to escalate like this situation. Hopefully jail time teaches him to respect people because obviously his parents cared more about money than actually giving him values.
I just think the girl is lying because I've been watching his videos and it looks like he's obviously into to woman that are thick and older, and I don't think he wants to see a flat chested no ass 12 year old that's just sad
Kid makes skateboarding look so bad
