Sam Rader of YouTube’s "Sam & Nia" channel is at the center of another controversy. Following a Saturday appearance at Vlogger Fair, an annual YouTube fan and creator gathering in Seattle, the 29-year-old Christian family vlogger and father of two was reportedly removed from the conference for threatening to assault other YouTubers.

People magazine reports that Rader was "kicked out" of the conference for allegedly “threatening violence against his peers.” As noted by People, a post on the Tumblr account Stark Raving Sane claims Rader “kept confronting people who were calling them out on Twitter and saying he wanted to punch them.”

Rader confirmed to Gawker that he was kicked out of the conference. “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,” Rader told the site.


YouTuber Meghan Tonjes, who attended the event, has since spoken out about the incident. On Saturday, the singer took to Twitter to slam Rader for his alleged actions at the conference. “At the next con you’re not invited to, definitely don’t threaten violence against other vloggers? #trash #godbless,” she wrote, sharing a link to a since-deleted tweet from the "Sam & Nia" Twitter account.

Tonjes went on to state that Rader was “tolerated past your welcome." She later congratulated Vlogger Fair for removing him from the event. Below are a few of Tonjes' tweets about Rader:


Rader’s alleged threats of violence came one day after he admitted to having had an account on Ashley Madison, a site which helps married individuals find affair partners. Rader and his wife Nia, 26, also recently came under fire for a viral video in which Sam tells Nia she's pregnant. Rader said he was able to use his wife's urine to take the pregnancy test for her, a claim which some experts have speculated against. Days after announcing the pregnancy, the couple shared that Nia had suffered a miscarriage. The couple has two children.

Sam and Nia first gained Internet fame with the March 2014 video “Good Looking Parents Sing Disney's Frozen,” which showed the family of four singing along to a song from the animated film's soundtrack. As of Monday morning, their YouTube channel had 361,573 subscribers and just over 71.3 million views.
