CONTROVERSIAL comic book creator Chris Chan views herself as a “goddess” and has been involved in a string of controversies before being arrested over claims of “incest”.
The 39-year-old YouTuber, whose full name is Christine Weston Chandler , is the founder of the Sonicho and Rosechu comic book series that takes place in the town she created, CWCville.
It is named after her initials and features the character Sonicho which appears to be a crossover between Pokémon and Sonic the Hedgehog.
The series's main character is modeled on Chan standing her ground against witches, evil cops, and internet trolls.
Chan has used the series over the past two decades to hit back at people online who targeted her into releasing personal information by reportedly approaching her as a fake potential love interest.
"I am Mrs. Christine W. Chandler Sonichu, Goddess of the Nations of Cwcville, Comma, and the Commodore Consoles, and the Creator of Sonichu and Rosechu," she says in her Twitter profile.
She also reportedly repeated the claim as she was arrested last weekend.
“I am compliant, I am good like this. I am Chris Chan Sonichu, your Goddess Blue Heart and I continue to stand strong and I maintain everything with my CWCville, Sonichu, and Rosechu and everybody,” she shouted at internet show “The Ralph Retort” who was live streaming from the scene, KVIA reports.
‘TARGETED BY TROLLS’
Chan became infamous in the 2000s after her Sonichi comic book caught the attention of the masses on 4chan and led to a wave of trolls targeting her.
She first uploaded her content in 2000 and has around 27,000 followers on Twitter.
The vlogger has over 50,000 subscribers on her YouTube page where she last posted five days ago.
Chan has been embroiled in several controversies over the years and went viral in 2007 when Encyclopedia Dramatica mocked her comics allegedly ridiculing women and being homophobic.
She also courted controversy after creating her own cartoon porn, as well as making a video in which she told trolls "it is war" as she pointed a gun at the screen. it is not clear if the gun was real.
In September 2011, Chan described herself as a “tomgirl” and said she was going through gender dysmorphia after years of homophobic remarks for which she apologized in a later video.
Five years later, she went on to change her name to Christine and came out as transgender.
According to reports, she legally changed her gender and also came out as bisexual, telling followers she was looking for love.
HOUSE FIRE RAISES ATTENTION
Chan faded into anonymity again until a house fire at her mother's home in 2014 brought her story to the attention of another wave of online abuse.
She was again the target of trolling with fake profiles catfishing her and leaking personal details.
The 39-year-old blogger, who is autistic and receives disability from the state, is currently being held at Henrico County Regional Jail West in Virginia after being booked on Sunday, according to KVIA.
It was exclusively revealed by The Sun today that Chan has a previous criminal record, including a suspended jail sentence for Macing a GameStop worker.
A filing from Albemarle General District Court, seen by The Sun, shows she was charged with Class 1 Misdemeanour Assault in December 2014.
This was a lesser charge after she was initially booked for a Class 6 Felony for “dangerous gas unlawful release.”
‘MACED A GAMESTOP EMPLOYEE’
The controversial internet star, who was previously known as Christian, and the complaint was made by James R. Herring.
According to reports, the arrest was after she maced an employee at GameStop who had asked her to leave.
She was allegedly barred for life from the store following the altercation.
Chan was given a 180-day suspended jail sentence and ordered to pay $514 in court costs, according to court records.
Previously, in October 2011, Chandler and her mother were arrested after Barbara hit a local game store manager with her car, leading them to pay a fine and undergo community service and a year of probation.
As reported, Chan was booked at 8.23pm on Sunday in relation to incest, according to the Henrico County Sheriff’s website.
