What a quick fall from grace.
Sam Rader — most famous for the viral video he shot supposedly surprising his wife Nia with her own pregnancy, and then the ensuing miscarriage, and then the ensuing paid Ashley Madison account that he copped to use to cheat on his wife — has been kicked out of a vlogger conference in Seattle for threatening violence against other YouTubers.
We probably should’ve seen something like this coming, considering the drama that went down with Sam and Nia recently, but nevertheless, here we are.
It all started at Vlogger Fair, when Sam allegedly got into another content creator’s face over supposed ridicule against the Rader family, and, well, let Sam himself tell the story about how many people he threatened:
“It was one person, and I didn’t make a threat. What happened was there was a couple of fellow vloggers who had ridiculed our family on Twitter regarding the method we were mourning the loss, our miscarriage on Twitter.”
Gawker has a solid rundown of the entire incident after speaking with Sam and a few other vloggers:
Sam told me that problems at the conference began on Friday, when he approached one of the vloggers and “told him he had hurt our family and that was that.” On Saturday, Sam said that this vlogger “got in my face” and “put his chest up against mine” and that there was a verbal altercation from there. Sam admits that after this incident, the organizers kicked him out of the conference. He said he does not know if the other vlogger was asked to leave.
For the record, Sam himself still doesn’t believe he made that bad of a threat, telling Gawker:
“That’s absolutely not true. If I made a threat, it was to the one person, and it was, ‘You need to watch out before he messes with my family.'”
Oh, Sam. Where do we even go from here??
