She also accused Lamberof “using his clout as a manipulation tactic” to try and pressure her into making explicit content with him.
Brandy also Tweeted that upon telling her two friends, aged 18 and 20, about her experience, they too came out and said that they had been harassed by the creator.
Yesterday, I came out to my friends about this and expressed the emotional damage that I am recovering from. During this time, two other girls came forward and explained that they have been also harassed by Nick Ray. They are 18 and 20 years old.

Who is Brandy from UCNick TikTok drama?
“I am extremely upset that my friends were affected and this could have been potentially stopped sooner if I had come out publicly, months ago, when this first started,” Brandy wrote.
She continued: “No man should EVER sexually harass a girl. Nick is a boy using his clout to manipulate and prey on girls. He needs to be confronted and held accountable for his actions.”
Since going public with these allegations, Brandy revealed on Twitter that “over a dozen” young women between the ages of 16 and 21 had come forward with allegations against Lambert.
I’m so proud of the girls posting publicly on Tiktok and social media. That’s hard. Over a dozen girls have spoke up to me. Their ages are 16-21. Minors. I’m so sorry. I just want to hold y’all. I’m so sorry. Please talk to me. I’m here for you.
