Christian Vlogger Kicked Out of Conference for Allegedly Threatening Violence

Screen Shot 2015-08-23 at 4.24.20 PMA Christian vlogger was kicked out of the Vlogger Fair conference this weekend for allegedly threatening violence.

Sam Rader got lots of online attention a few weeks ago with his viral video surprising his wife Nia by telling her she’s pregnant. A tearful follow-up video revealed they found out there was a miscarriage. There was a lot of subsequent online suspicion about whether the whole thing was a hoax.

And then just days ago, Rader confessed in a video that he set up an Ashley Madison account, but he’s found forgiveness both from God and from his wife.

Which brings us to yesterday, when Rader was at the Vlogger Fair conference. Gawker reports that he was “threatening violence” against other attendees. Rader confirmed to Gawker he was booted out, but provided this account of what happened:

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.

He denied threatening anyone and said, “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.'”

Two vloggers at the conference gave a slightly different take:
