Black Twitter is in complete shambles today after party promoter @ByeCorn has been accused of allegedly sexually assaulting women at the popular Bourbon Ball and related social events. The fallout of the chatter led to ByeCorn deleting his Twitter account, with other users who were aligned with him catching some of the crossfire.
Trying to determine the definitive root of it all has been difficult, but at some point Thursday night (Nov. 9), several women have come forth saying they have been assaulted as well. Given ByeCorn’s high follower count and his involvement with the Bourbon Ball and TKAS parties, reactions by many who supported the events have been all over the map. While his original account was apparently deleted, an open letter of sorts and an apology to the alleged victims was posted earlier today.
We’ve collected some of the reaction that’s fit to print below. See the following pages for more reaction. We must warn you that the language is harsh and the accounts of the alleged assaults may be triggering to some.

My homegirl was sexually assaulted by Corn, got scared and got off twitter completely because she was afraid to block him.

In light of recent allegations, @Byecorn is no longer apart of the Bourbon Ball team, nor is he welcomed at any upcoming Bourbon Ball events. I am saddened and shocked by the allegations and truly hope these women find healing. (1/2)
