Another woman is coming forward with accusations against Jonah Hill.

In a series of tweets published over the weekend, “Zoey 101 alum Alexa Nikolas, 31, said that the “Superbad” star lured her away from a party and assaulted her when she was 16 and Hill was 24. (Nikolas didn’t mention the year of the party or Hill’s age in her tweets. But she does mention her age when the alleged incident occurred, suggesting that the party happened sometime in 2008.)

Nikolas’ accusations come in the wake of Hill’s ex-girlfriend, surfer Sarah Brady, publicly sharing a series of text exchanges with the “21 Jump Street” star in which he exhibits “emotionally abusive” behavior. Nikolas noted in a tweet that she felt Brady’s actions were “admirable” and the athlete inspired her to come forward.

Nikolas alleged that she and a friend — who she said was “also 16 or 17” — were at a party at “Barbarian” actor Justin Long’s home. She accused Long and his roommate at the time, “CSI: Miami” actor Jonathan Togo, of purposely getting her and her friend drunk and that they were “all aware I was 16.”

Nikolas wrote that she was pretty intoxicated once Hill arrived at the party.

“We were all pretty wasted because of course the predators were feeding us minors a bunch of alcohol,” she wrote.

Nikolas recalled asking Hill for “a cig” at one point in the night. She said he told her that if she wanted one, she’d have to go with him to his car “right outside” to get one because he didn’t want to go outside “all alone.” She said she and Hill then went to the car to retrieve the cigarettes from the front seat of his car. But she said Hill never gave her a cigarette — “which I thought was weird,” she wrote.

“And then as we walked back to the door I asked him for it and he said nothing,” Nikolas wrote. “But slammed me to the door and shoved his tongue down my throat. I was so appalled I pushed him off of me and ran inside.”

Nikolas also accused Togo of having sex with her drunk and underage friend, writing that the actor was “sleeping [with] *aka assaulting a minor*” during the party.

She also blasted Long for creating an environment in which minors could be taken advantage of by older men. She compared Long to his character in “Barbarian,” AJ Gilbride — an actor who is fired from a television series over allegations that he raped his co-star.

“Hey Justin Long I find it interesting you being in Barbarian as a predator,” Nikolas tweeted. “It must have been weird playing some of your friends. You knew your roommate was assaulting a minor under your own roof. You let it happen. Eek. I hope you regret it now.”

She added in a follow-up tweet:

“Also #justinlong why the fuck did you have children at your house late night? Ew.”

HuffPost has reached out to Hill and Togo for comment.

A representative for Long told HuffPost that the “Galaxy Quest” actor had “no knowledge” of the incident.

“This is the first time Justin has been made aware of this situation that allegedly happened nearly two decades ago. While Justin is sympathetic to any and all victims of any abuse, the simple fact remains he has no knowledge of what may or may not have happened concerning Ms. Nikolas,” his representative said.

Nikolas said in another tweet that she was sharing this information because she has been “traumatized by men in hollywood” and “Things have to change.”

“This type of predatory behavior was hyper normalized when I was a kid. I’m proud to see women standing up to abusive men now. Bad ASS!” she wrote.

Nikolas also made a disparaging remark about the people behind “Family Guy” — a show she worked on for an episode in 2011 — though she didn’t offer any other context. On Sunday, however, Nikolas offered a bit more information about the long-running animated show’s creator, Seth MacFarlane, though she kept her tweets vague.

“One day soon after more therapy we can all start talking about #sethmacfarlanes utter predatory disrespect for professional boundaries period,” she tweeted.

She added that she was “mysteriously offered the job” on “Family Guy” without any voice work experience at 18 by MacFarlane and that he is 19 years older than her.

HuffPost has reached out to MacFarlane as well for comment.
