YouTuber Held Up At Gunpoint During A Livestream
'No Jumper' host Adam Grandmaison -- known as Adam22 -- was threatened at gunpoint on Sunday night while recording the latest episode of his podcast.
Recording a video livestream from his studio on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, the host was addressing his 900k subscribers before a figure can be seen reaching into the frame with a gun and holding it at Grandmaison’s head.
“Give me all your fucking money! Do you want to die right now?” the assailant yelled as the host pushed the gun away, and laughed nervously -- clearly believing the alleged robbery was a prank.
A scuffle can then be heard off camera as the would-be robber is apprehended by "No Jumper's" security team, before the host ends the live stream.
In another video posted to Twitter following the alleged robbery, the suspect can be seen dazed on the floor as he flashes the peace sign before being kicked by the videographer, while another person is heard contacting the police.
LAPD soon responded to the scene and the gunman was arrested and taken into custody.
“The suspect approached the victim a with a gun, while a livestream was in process,” a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department, told The Independent.
“The suspect was taken to the ground and the police department was called. The suspect was treated and then booked for attempted robbery.”
A spokesperson later confirmed that the item police recovered at the scene of the crime was a prop gun, rather than an actual weapon.
Speaking to TMZ, the 35-year-old revealed that the harrowing event could have been far worse, explaining that someone in his crew pulled out his gun and pointed it at the assailant's head.
"That's the thing I'm thankful [about]," he said, "This guy didn't get killed cause it was really, really close to happening."
The host soon returned to Twitter to assure fans he was fine, even cracking jokes about the scary sitch.
"One minute you're tweeting jokes about f***ing cats and the next minute you got a gun to your head," he wrote.
Grandmaison’s "No Jumper" podcast is hugely popular among the hip-hop community, with 900k viewers subscribed to his channel which is credited for launching the careers of artists like XXXTentacion, Lil Peep and Lil Yachty.
