Anthony White, Fake Anti-#GamerGate Journalist Jailed For 3 Years For Soliciting Underage Girls
Anthony White GamerGate

We originally reported on Anthony White back on November 1st, 2017. It was discovered that White was posing as a fake game journalist in an attempt to hire in young writers for a gaming outlet that never got off the ground called Digitally Critical. The project never got off the ground because White had no intention of getting it off the ground; he only used it to comb through applications of female writers, with the sole intention of preying on those who happened to be young girls.

Well, Evesham Journal published an article on June 25th, 2018 revealing that Anthony White has been arrested and imprisoned for three years and four months by the Warwick Crown Court for being an “ongoing risk” to underage girls.

The Bidford, U.K., resident pleaded guilty for soliciting a girl for indecent pictures and for attempting to engage in sexual activity with a minor. White and the girl exchanged nude photos over the course of several months, with White pressuring the girl to send more increasingly explicit images of herself.

White, aged 30, had been communicating with the 15-year-old over the course of four months, and prosecutor Graeme Simpson informed the court that White had plans on engaging in sexual activity with the girl…

“He repeatedly made it clear he wanted to have intercourse with her, and that he particularly liked the fact that she was under-age, and would in fact prefer it if she was even younger.”

This will be the second time that White is jailed for attempting to engage in sexual activity with an underage girl. He was jailed for 16 months back in 2014 for allegedly sexually abusing his daughter since she was three years of age.

Twitter user Mombot originally outed White as a pedophile via a Medium article published back in November of 2017.  The article informed the community at large that White had spent time in prison for allegedly abusing his young daughter, and that he used multiple fake online social media accounts in order to prey on young girls. She summed up his ruse by writing…

“In spite of Anthony’s secret alter-egos, he maintained a strictly feminist persona on his “public” social media accounts. Some of the things which Anthony posted are shockingly hypocritical. Fragmentary archives show Anthony chiding his autistic brother for ‘using his mental disability to shield himself from accusations of misogyny’. On neoGAF, a progressive gaming community which recently suffered its own sexual misconduct controversy, Anthony adopted the screen name “Symphonia” and accused random GamerGaters of harassing women in the gaming industry.”

This eventually led to White being ousted from gaming forums such as NeoGaf and ResetEra, where he attempted to align him self with the anti-#GamerGate crowd by defending former Nintendo employee Alison Rapp, who was fired for moonlighting as an escort.

Anthony White joins a long list of other sexual abusers, sexual harassers, stalkers, child pornographers, pedophiles, and rapists who make up the ranks of the anti-#GamerGate side that have either been fired or imprisoned for their unlawful sexual misconduct.
