Following the explosive allegations against Rich Campbell of sexually assaulting fellow Twitch streamer and social media influencer Azalia Lexi, the OTK co-founder appears to have accepted the request to resign from the organization in a recent tweet, hours after Lexi's Twitlonger went viral.

Rich Campbell announced his resignation from One True King (OTK) in a tweet and promised to post an update soon. Here's what he said:

"I have read the statements made against me today. I will share my side of the story, but need some time to collect my thoughts. OTK has requested that I resign from my position, and I have agreed. I will make an update soon."

Trigger warning: Mention of sexual assault

Azalia Lexi's initial allegations came after Campbell's partner Mia Malkova went on a podcast and talked about the streamer's pregnancy fetish. Clips from the video went viral on Instagram, and Campbell, now a former OTK member, even shared screenshots from one such reel on his official Twitter account.

Subsequently, Azalia Lexi shared her opinion on the same, revealing her side of the story about the assault.

The post might not have gained much traction, but it clearly ruffled some feathers as many attacked Azalia for calling Rich Campbell out without evidence. In response, she posted a lengthy Twitlonger detailing her harrowing experience. She also posted a bunch of screenshots from the night of the incident.
