In August 2020, rumours began to circulate online that Tony Lopez had been engaging in sexually explicit correspondence with a girl of 15 years of age. It was stated that the influencer communicated directly with the young person through Instagram and Snapchat.
The victim of the crime who has been accused has identified herself as Cay. By taking screenshots of the alleged conversations between Tony Lopez and his friends on Snapchat, she provided evidence of the alleged conversations. She said that he would send her a snap message daily with negative remarks about his desire to have physical relationships with her and that these comments would be sent to her randomly. For the sake of building a case against him, she would go through with it even though she knew he was a bad guy.
It was also revealed that Tony Lopez allegedly attempted to have sexual intercourse with a girl less than 16 years old. This information was made public. He was suspected of having sexual relations with a minor and requesting nude photographs online, which led to a civil lawsuit for sexual battery being brought against him. According to the allegations made in the complaint, the defendant Tony Lopez “induced, manipulated, groomed, and pushed” the plaintiff into participating in sexual behaviour with him.

Even though the TikToker professed regret for his actions, he continued to fight the accusations in court, telling TMZ, “The claims are not at all true, and I’ll fight it until the very end.” Tony Lopez’s position has not improved due to the rebranding of the TikTok sound, which has not advanced the case. The influencer sent out a tweet in reaction to his most recent TikTok, in which he said, “Any time someone makes a TikTok with my face or name in it, it simply promotes me, so keep it coming, thank you.” The audience applauded him as he made the most out of a difficult circumstance.
