Duke alum who ‘won’ Twitter lawsuit against Trump is accused of sexual assault

The Duke Medical School graduate who “successfully” sued Donald Trump for blocking him on Twitter and who snapped a memorable photo of himself taking a knee to “fight white supremacy,” has been accused of sexual assault by a girlfriend he met on Twitter.

Dr. Eugene Gu took to Twitter today to tell his side of the story following yesterday’s publication of the woman’s accusations by The Daily Dot.

The woman, a medical student who goes by the user name @DoctorMeowskis, claims that in addition to groping her, attempting to kiss her, and telling her he wanted “to have unprotected sex so he could get [her] pregnant,” Gu used a sockpuppet Twitter account with the name “Mary Laury” to badger her about their relationship:

[…] @DoctorMeowskis began receiving messages from a woman named Mary Laury who claimed to be a surgeon. Things with Laury soon became “really weird.” Laury was obsessed with Gu and had “printed [Gu’s] photo and put it on her wall to admire.” Laury also asked for intimate details about  @DoctorMeowski and Gu’s relationship. Laury made @DoctorMeowskis feel “uneasy.” Laury also claimed to know Gu in real life.

Though Gu initially denied he was behind the sockpuppet account, he fessed up to it in a lengthy — and sordid — explanation on Twitter.

Gu says @DoctorMeowskis “took off [his] pants” and got on top of him “to have sex;” however, he claims he “couldn’t easily breathe” because @DoctorMeowskis “is a lot bigger and heavier” than he is:

Gu says the “Mary Laury” account originally “was an anonymous account people close to [him] created to address the trolling issues [he] was encountering from Trump supporters on Twitter.”  He admits to using it “not to harass or stalk [@DoctorMeowskis] but to corroborate the fact that [he] would be in DC for the weekend.”

“In hindsight this was immature of me and I regret the way I used it,” Gu added, “but I was desperate to find a way for her to believe me that I was unable to visit her.”

Despite the “TMI” back and forth, Gu concluded his Twitter storm with a worthy warning about the #MeToo movement:

Earlier this year, Vanderbilt University Medical Center declined to renew Gu’s contract citing “performance issues.” Gu believes he was let go because of his activism.
