Ian Watkins Says Sexually Abusing a Baby Was Megalolz

Back in late November, we learned that Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins plead guilty to 11 sexual offense charges, 2 of which were for trying to rape a baby. He was sentenced to 29 years, but he still doesn’t know what the big deal is. He says it for the lulz or, as he put it, the “megalolz.” Someone find this guy’s 4chan account, stat.

To recap, he was charged with touching a one-year-old, possibly raping the one-year-old. He denies sex happened but he also said he was on a drug-fueled binge at the time. He was also charged with encouraging a fan to abuse her own child during a webcam chat. He’s now sitting in prison and wondering how it all went wrong.

During a phone call to a female friend from prison, Watkins said, “It was, like, either me go up there and say ‘Come on, it wasn’t that bad, nobody got hurt’, I do my charm. Or do I end up making things worse for myself? Or do I just say I was off my head and can’t remember?”

He added the whole sexually abusing a baby thing was just for funsies, “I’m going to put a statement on [December] 18th now just to say it was megalolz, I don’t know what everyone is getting so freaked out about.”

Though in a later conversation, reality did sort of set in. “It’s so hard. There’s a lot of ****ing meaningless bull**** like chat that I did to show off when I was ****ing off my head. There was no medical evidence, nobody was harmed at all. I’m not a paedophile, I’m not. You know I plead (sic) guilty just to avoid a trial, not realising ‘Hang on, that makes me look a bit guilty’ but I would never harm anybody.”

Asked if he would still be putting out a statement saying he did it for “megalolz,” Ian replied, “No, it’s just lulz now.”
