Former WhatCulture personality Adam Blampied, who was also the What Culture Pro Wrestling General Manager, announced on Twitter that he is taking a leave of absence after admitting to soliciting nude photos from multiple women. A woman on Twitter posted a lengthy statement along with photo proof of Blampied trying to manipulate her into sending the photos.
"I wanted to make this situation public for reasons that will become clear," Blampied wrote. "I want to publicly apologize for actions in my private life over the past few years: I have falsely claimed to several woman via social media that I was in an open relationship with my girlfriend as a means to repeatedly message them and encourage them to send me images of themselves."

Shortly after Blampied released his statement, a woman began to detail her experience in which he asked her for topless photos after admitting he had a girlfriend.
"Knowing that I was 19, drunk, sexually inexperienced and had moral objections to sending him nudes, he continued to try to persuade me," she wrote. "In the end, I relented. I don't feel good about my actions. I wish I had had the self-control to not do it, but I'd never really had that kind of attention from a man before, especially not someone like Blampied."

The woman proceeded to say that the situation has affected her mental health and she has had trouble sleeping. After learning about how he has done the same thing to other women, she decided to go public.
He apologised to me personally for his actions multiple times. He continued to treat women awfully. I don't trust any apology he gives.— Ice Foreleg (@SRbackwards) October 25, 2017
I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping since I found out about the extent of this— Ice Foreleg (@SRbackwards) October 25, 2017
It feels good to let it out
Also, when I confronted him about the number of women who've complained about his actions, he straight up lied about it— Ice Foreleg (@SRbackwards) October 25, 2017
When some people accused her of lying, the woman followed up with screenshots of her messages with Blampied.
people asking for receipts as if he didn't actually publicly admit to it, but sure, ask me to share private screenshots, that'll help— Ice Foreleg (@SRbackwards) October 25, 2017
Since some people don't take Blampied's own admission of guilt as proof, here you guy you vultures pic.twitter.com/ex9o3IwAGK— Ice Foreleg (@SRbackwards) October 25, 2017
Blampied is the Head of Creative of Cultaholics, a new company developed by a group of personalities who recently left WhatCulture. Blampied said he will be seeking personal help during his leave of absence.
