Sounds really horrible

Gabi DeMartino, one half of Niki and Gabi, has spoken out about why she no longer attends VidCon.

In a new video, Gabi reveals a scary experience she had at the convention in 2016, which has stopped her from ever being able to return. She says that at that convention, Gabi already felt unsafe, because the event took place just two weeks after the tragic murder of musician and YouTuber Christina Grimmie.

Then, during her meet and greet, her security guard noticed a suspicious seeming older man in the queue, who was holding a binder full of pictures of her and her sister Niki. Security asked the man to leave and assured Gabi that he would not be present at her panel that day. But he was - and he worked his way through the crowd, getting closer and closer to the front of the stage, at one point even getting hold of the microphone and saying strange things.

Niki and Gabi both left the stage and no one was ultimately harmed but it was an incident that has left her shaken to this day. You can see her video here:
