Unraveling the Enigma of Onision: 10 Intriguing Facts About the Controversial YouTuber

Onision, a polarizing figure in the YouTube community, has garnered a problematic reputation over the years. With a large following and an equal number of detractors, he has faced numerous serious allegations, leading to a recent documentary on Discovery+ titled Onision: In Real Life. The documentary delves into accusations of grooming underage girls, thrusting Onision further into the spotlight. Here are 10 lesser-known facts about this controversial YouTuber.

1. A Washington Native with Rural Roots

Unlike many popular YouTubers, Onision has been open about his personal life. Born and raised in a rural area of Washington, he spent his childhood on his family’s farm with his mother and two older sisters. He continues to reside in Washington state.

2. The Patreon Ban Incident

Onision was permanently banned from Patreon, a platform that allows users to offer premium content for a monthly subscription fee, after deliberately posting another YouTuber’s phone number.

3. The YouTuber Turned Author

While most people know Onision for his YouTube content, he has also ventured into the literary world. He has published three novels between 2015 and 2018, with his most recent work titled Stones To Abbigale. It remains unclear if he plans to release more books in the future.

4. Fatherhood Amidst Turmoil

Onision is a proud father to a son and a daughter. However, his online persona’s chaos has seeped into his real life. In 2019, he found himself under investigation after his daughter fell out of a two-story window at their home. The incident was deemed an accident, and Onision faced no charges.

5. Exploring OnlyFans

Despite his ban from Patreon, Onision has found another premium content platform: OnlyFans. Known for its x-rated content, OnlyFans operates similarly to Patreon. Subscribers can access Onision’s OnlyFans for $4.20 a month.

6. A Grandfather’s Influence

Despite a challenging upbringing, Onision had a close relationship with his grandfather, whom he cites as one of his early role models. However, little else is known about his grandfather.

7. A Religious Upbringing and a Shift in Beliefs

Raised in a 7th Day Adventist household, Onision spent several summers attending a local church camp. As he grew older, he chose to follow his own path, and religion no longer plays a significant role in his life. He currently identifies as agnostic.

8. Military Service and Deployment

Although not one for following rules, Onision served in the United States Air Force in the mid-2000s. During his time in the military, he volunteered for several deployments and was eventually sent to South Korea.

9. Mental Health Struggles and Military Discharge

Onision has been open about his mental health struggles over the years. While in the military, he was diagnosed with chronic depression. According to a video on his YouTube channel, he was honorably discharged in 2008.

10. The Potential End of Onision’s YouTube Career

Could 2021 mark the end of Onision’s YouTube career? A video uploaded in January 2021 titled ‘Farewell’ suggests that he may be done with the platform. With years of drama and YouTube’s move to demonetize him, it’s understandable why he might want to move on. However, YouTube has likely been his primary source of income, so this decision could significantly impact his livelihood.
