'Paper Towns' Author John Green Responds to Sexual Abuse Claims from Tumblr Users

John Green is defending himself after some Tumblr users posted nasty things about him on the social media site and claimed that he sexually abuses young girls.

“You want me to defend myself against the implication that I sexually abuse children? Okay. I do not sexually abuse children,” the 37-year-old “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Paper Towns” author wrote on his account.

“Throwing that kind of accusation around is sick and libelous and most importantly damages the discourse around the actual sexual abuse of children. When you use accusations of pedophilia as a way of insulting people whose work you don’t like, you trivialize abuse,” he continued.
