Things just keep getting ickier for Sam & Nia Rader, the controversial YouTubers who have seen a lot happen for their channel lately. The latest news? Threats and cheating.
Sam was recently kicked out of a Seattle vlogger conference for threatening another guest(s).
According to Gawker, who spoke with Sam, he said: “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.”
She brings up a good point — especially when coupled with the OTHER big Sam & Nia news from this weekend:
Sam turned up on the list of people exposed by the Ashley Madison hack.
Yeah, somehow this doesn’t surprise me — but don’t worry fans of the channel, Nia has already forgiven him. Posting a video titled simply “Forgiven,” Sam admits that he signed up to the website for married people who want to have an affair two years ago.
He then turns the story of how he was looking for strange into a sort of sermon, and in the process, Sam has just furthered the weirdness surrounding him and his family, who recently claimed to have a miscarriage three days after Sam surprised his wife with news that she was pregnant.
“We’re all broken – even Christians…,” he says. “This is why we need a savior. We’re sinful by nature. And we do stupid things like this. This is what they told us all about forgiveness and second chances.” He also claims he only used the service to chat … (*editorial cough* and all that).
Yeah, you get a savior, I’ll get some disinfectant wipes. Fortunately, this video only has 650,000 views — a downturn from the 20 million they were grabbing for their pregnancy and miscarriage videos — perhaps it’s a sign that people don’t want to see ALL the details of a vlogging family in turmoil.
It’s probably best that, going forward, they just handle this one internally. The being kicked out of blogger conferences thing? I don’t know, that seems entertaining enough, just keep doing that.
