The Phandom took no chances.
Dan and Phil were forced to alert their management after a set of strange videos from a fan claiming to have a VIP ticket to their upcoming Interactive Introverts tour emerged online.
This weekend the Phandom trended #SaveDanAndPhil on Twitter after discovering a fan who has posted several bizarre videos about the pair - at least one of which appeared to warn of Phil's death.
"It is about the red-winged blackbird or the red-winged starling," the fan can be seen saying on the video. She says she will make a video to "warn of Phil and its death IRL." She later says, "to Phil and I's death IRL in August."
After watching the video, some Dan and Phil fans decided to band together to raise the alarm over the disturbing video content, inspired by the tragic death of YouTuber Christine Grimmie at the hands of a fan.

After seeing the hashtag online, Phil reached out to a fans to thank them for their concern and assure them they were dealing with the issue. "We are aware of this and our management is looking into it," he wrote.
