Following an appearance at Vlogger Fair, an annual YouTube fan and creator gathering, in Seattle, Washington, on Saturday, the 29-year-old Christian family vlogger and father of two was reportedly removed from the conference for allegedly threatening to assault other YouTubers.
The billing address for the Ashley Madison account is also the same address where Rader and his 26-year-old wife, Nia, live.
Vlogger Fair program director, Liz Bradshaw, didn’t specify why Sam and Nia left early but did say the event prides itself as a place “where our guests and community feel welcome and safe”.
“I did make the account”. “… I brought this to my church at the time, the church I’m at now, my discipleship partner”.
“Over 2 years ago I did create the Ashely Madison account”, Sam said in a video.
The Daily Mail reported that Rader made six payments to Ashley Madison in 2013. I’ve never met with a single person face to face through that website, and that I never had an affair with anybody, ever, while I’ve been married with Nia.
When asked to comment, Rader said he would explain himself in his videos. “The account was opened out of pure fleshly desires and out of simple curiosity”. “This is in our past and it’s unfortunate that it’s being dug up right now”.
Soon after, they posted the first of numerous daily YouTube videos centered on their biblical beliefs.
They released a second video days later, tearfully telling their 360,000 subscribers of an apparent miscarriage.
“It was one person, and I didn’t make a threat”, he said.
Sam tells Gawker someone “ridiculed our family on Twitter regarding the method we were mourning the loss, our miscarriage on Twitter”.
