The Disturbing Allegations Against Sam Altman: A Closer Look
Social media users have recently discovered troubling allegations against Sam Altman, the co-founder and CEO of OpenAI. These accusations were made by Altman’s sister, Annie Altman, in a series of old tweets that have resurfaced online. The revelations have caused outrage and concern among netizens, who are disturbed by the nature of the abuse allegations.
In her tweets from 2021, Annie Altman accused her brothers Sam and Jack Altman of subjecting her to sexual, emotional, and physical abuse during her childhood. She urged others who had been victimized by her brothers to come forward and seek legal justice.
“I experienced sexual, physical, emotional, verbal, financial, and technological abuse from my biological siblings, mostly Sam Altman and some from Jack Altman. I feel strongly that others have also been abused by these perpetrators. I’m seeking people to join me in pursuing legal justice, safety for others in the future, and group healing.”
It is important to note that there have been no official reports of sexual misconduct against Sam Altman, who is openly gay and has been in a long-term relationship. Additionally, Annie Altman accused her brother of withholding her trust fund after their father’s death, which led her to engage in sex work due to financial struggles.
Although these tweets were posted in 2021, they went unnoticed until this year when Annie brought attention to the old allegations, including the disturbing claim that her “brother” climbed into her bed when she was only four years old.
“I’m not four years old with a 13-year-old “brother” climbing into my bed non-consensually anymore. (You’re welcome for helping you figure out your sexuality.) I’ve finally accepted that you’ve always been and always will be more scared of me than I’ve been of you.”
As the tweet from March 2023 went viral in the following months, social media users dug up the old posts, shedding light on the extent of the abuse that went unreported by the media for years. Annie has since reshared the tweets on her feed, and people continue to offer their support.
Netizens React to Allegations Against Sam Altman
The resurfaced allegations against Sam Altman, revealing his sister Annie’s horrifying accusations, have triggered a strong backlash from social media users. Many are outraged that these accusations, which first emerged in 2021, were not widely reported despite the disturbing nature of the claims.
Some netizens even accuse the media of participating in a cover-up, suggesting that they fear losing access to OpenAI if they criticize Sam Altman. Additionally, a Reddit user claimed that social media platforms have been shadowbanning Altman’s sister for speaking out against her brother.
Furthermore, there is widespread condemnation of Altman for allowing his sister to live in poverty despite his own millionaire status, as well as for withholding her trust fund after their father’s death. These actions reportedly led Annie to engage in sex work as a means of financial survival. While the exact nature of her work is unclear, social media users have discovered that she has an OnlyFans account.
However, it has been pointed out that Altman did offer to buy Annie a house in 2022, but she claims that the offer was made to silence her after she spoke out about the abuse.
“The offer was after a year and a half of no contact, and I had started speaking up online. I had already started survival sex work. The offer was for the house to be connected with a lawyer, and the last time I had a Sam-lawyer connection I didn’t get to see my Dad’s will for a year.”
As social media scrutinizes the old tweets, Sam Altman has remained silent about the allegations. It is worth noting that there is currently no criminal investigation underway regarding Altman and the allegations, which seem to be circulating primarily online.
The Complex Relationship between Annie and Sam Altman
These renewed allegations come on the heels of a recent New Yorker profile that portrayed Sam Altman as a highly influential figure. However, the profile also highlighted the Altman family’s struggles, particularly involving Annie.
According to the New Yorker, Sam Altman maintains a close relationship with his brothers Jack and Max but does not have a similar connection with his sister Annie. Annie has dealt with mental health issues since the age of five, and her father’s death in 2018 exacerbated these issues.
Annie shared with the New Yorker that her sensitivity has always been heightened, referring to herself as the “family’s pain sponge.” She also revealed that Sam Altman offered financial assistance after their father’s passing, but withdrew it when she refused to take her prescribed medication for her mental health struggles.
Additionally, Annie expressed resentment towards her brothers, recounting an incident where Sam and Jack refused to promote her podcast, “All Humans Are Human,” which they had agreed to appear on following their father’s death in 2018.
“I was like, ‘You could just tweet the link. That would help. You don’t want to share your sister’s podcast that you came on?’” He did not. “Jack and Sam said it didn’t align with their businesses.”
Sam Altman has not publicly acknowledged his sister since 2021 and has yet to address the recent allegations that have surfaced.
These allegations against Sam Altman are deeply troubling and warrant serious attention. It is essential to conduct a thorough investigation to determine the truth behind these claims. The wellbeing and safety of all individuals involved should be the utmost priority.
