A Vine star with over four million followers on the social media platform has reportedly been kicked out of an online video festival.
Carter Reynolds was told over Twitter that he was not welcome at the event which is currently being held in California.
One of the founders of the event Hank Green received a tweet from a fellow festival-goer saying Reybolds "shouldn't be there".
Green replied on the social network: “Security removed him [Reynolds] from the hotel. He was not an invited guest.”

Vine star Reynolds took to Twitter to rant about his reportedly forced exit from the festival.
"@VidCon why are you guys being a bunch of b*****s?," he tweeted.
"Apparently i was a threat to the people at the hotel and they were concerned with my safety as well as the safety of the people around me.
"Vidcon had no legit reason as to why i couldn't be there haha," he added, claiming he was treated like "some criminal or terrorist".
Vidcon have yet to comment.
The incident comes just one month after an x-rated video of the star was leaked.
Carter Reynolds and his ex-girlfriend, Instagram star Maggie Lindemann, featured in the video, which showed a fully-clothed Lindemann sitting on the bed.
Carter's genitals are visible in the video and he can be heard to say "Do it" and "just pretend (the camera) isn't there". Lindemann replies "I don't think I can", repeating "I am really uncomfortable". The video ends with Carter saying "Oh my gosh, Maggie".
The two social media stars recently broke up amid a very public spat on Twitter, in which Lindemann claimed she ended the relationship because Carter "makes me feel like sh*t".
