Andrew Christian underwear brand removes gay adult film star’s head from site after rape allegations
Andrew Christian has removed the head of Topher DiMaggio from its online modelling shots after the disgraced adult porn star was accused of rape.
Last month, gay porn star Tegan Zayne accused DiMaggio of engaging him in anal sex without his consent.
DiMaggio denied allegations about the incident, which Zayne said took place two years ago, the day before filming for CockyBoys.
Andrew Christian, an underwear brand, placed DiMaggio on “indefinite suspension” as its ambassador – but something’s not quite right.
Although the head of the adult star has been removed from the shots, the torso of the star is very much in place in the modelling photos.
“Andrew Christian does not condone sexual abuse or any other type of abuse or mistreatment to members of our community,” said a company spokesperson.
“We are taking allegations made by the victims very seriously. Accordingly, Topher is on indefinite suspension while we look into the matter.
“Late last year Andrew Christian started Project LOVE to help support various worthy charities in the LGBTQ community. Andrew Christian is committed to creating a safe welcoming environment for our LGBTQ family.”
However, it is clear that the company is still using the torso of the star due to DiMaggio’s unique stomach tattoo.
On the UK site alone, several promotional videos and images of DiMaggio are still available on the website.
At present, five men have accused Topher DiMaggio of sexual assault and rape – including allegations of an assault which happened at an Andrew Christian event.
One man, who was in the presence of his boyfriend at the event, said that the star groped him and then continued to assault him at the event in a Seattle gay bar in 2014.
“I thought he was joking, so I jokingly turned around and pulled my waistband down a little to be like, yes, that’s my ass.

“And then, all of a sudden, he flipped me around against the railing, crouched down and pulled my shorts down and started eating my ass,” the man said to Queerty.
“Initially, I was stunned. I tried to push back and tell him no, and he reached his left arm up and pinned me down against the railing.
“I couldn’t really move and wanted him to stop, and my boyfriend had this look of shock on his face. All I could really do was reach back and smack him in the head with my hand. After I did, he bit down on my right butt cheek, hard.
“When I got away from him and was leaving, Topher was yelling at me and calling me a pussy over and over again.
“I never saw him again after that, and I’ve avoided going to Andrew Christian events or to bars in WeHo when I’m there, because I know which bars he usually works at,” he added.
