Elijah Daniel’s VidCon experience was cut short this year after he was thrown out of the three-day online video festival. On June 24th a fan of Elijah, one half of the hilarious viral comedy duo Elijah and Christine, tweeted out a video of him being ejected from VidCon. In the video, Elijah is seen being escorted outside of a building, flanked by a mob of fans.
But nobody seems to know why Elijah Daniel was asked to leave
Elijah spoke out against being “banned” from the event, which took place from June 21st to June 24th at the Anaheim Convention Center in California, U.S.A. In a now deleted tweet, he offered up more details of the incident in question: “Vidcon your fuckin employees rly gonna grab my wrist take off my bands & kick me out w no reason & refuse to tell me her name? Ok babe,” he wrote.
Elijah also claimed that he wasn’t actually in the venue when he was “grabbed” by VidCon staffers. However, the YouTuber hasn’t given any more information as to why he was removed. VidCon have offered no comment in response to Elijah’s claims.
Elijah’s fans even made a petition to convince security to let him back into VidCon
Written on a styrofoam burger box, obviously.
In the early hours of June 25th Elijah hit out at VidCon, describing the convention as “the most poorly planned event on this planet” before apologising to fans he didn’t get the chance to meet.
While nobody knows why Elijah was kicked out, nobody seems to be too surprised that it happened
