"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."

Da Pimp

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

lady poppin

Stop judging u stupid shit


Now I know why I haven't seen any Keegan Dadd footy recently.

Genesis Huizar



this is actually utterly pathetic

Michael Mansouri

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.



bianca bonilla

Shut up there is nothing wrong with him


What do you expect? He's learning from the adults.

Cesar Gonzalez

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

Lucas Appel

Please remove this video, it was proven that he didn't do shit..

Aaron Brotheim

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.

Charlie Castillo

An.thony. Sk8ss

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

Unknown Unknown

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.

snoop dogg dank kush


davis lockhart


idkhonestly idk

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

Pothead For life

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.

Kathryn Myers



Wait is that why he quit skating? Did hi sponsors leave him because of this?


The people who ruined Steven's career

Christian S

Well if she said yes it isn't exactly sexual explicit they are both kids anyway

Zach Hendrix

jakepaul squaddd

drayton fanning

this is bull shit

Nani D lucky



the real blame is on the adults...that kids just a savage

Literarily Maddss

If y'all watch his video He talks about everything

Alan Rochin

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) .

Gabe Sohol

You guys are dickheads

idkhonestly idk

I know that was a long time ago but whatever

beth r

I USED TO TEXT W HIM LMAO he would ask for "pics" but my dumbass thought he meant selfies lmaoo

josh smith

Like usual cenk is dead wrong. Again.

Timmy Turtles

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
