Kardon is accused of texting children.
On October 5, 2022, a TikTok user called Mr. Goob @mrgoobreturns released a video outlining how he found Kardon was sending messages to females aged 16 and under. Another powerlifter, Arlind (Arlindthezerg on Instagram), who often conducts this kind of expose on his YouTube channel, put up a fake account. The bogus account displayed a lengthy page of a girl who was still in high school and claimed to be sixteen years old.
Mr. Goob proceeds to display a series of texts in which the influencer contacts this decoy account, mistaking him for a youngster. Despite knowing her age, he persisted to strike up a discussion with her. He also asked her to his hometown in North Carolina, where he resides. Several GymTok users have teamed together to deactivate the powerlifter’s account, which is presently limited and has just around 700 followers as of today. His lone video is of two young ladies deadlifting modest weights, after which he shows off his 800-pound deficit deadlift with the comment, “Tag @tiktok to get them to unban me.”
