Couple behind viral pregnancy test video 'removed' from vlogger conference 'for the safety of other attendees'

Viral vloggers Sam and Nia have had one more controversy to add to their last few tumultuous weeks.

Sam Rader has hit the headlines once again, this time for allegedly threatening other vloggers at a vlogger conference.

The vlogger, who went viral after using a pregnancy test on his wife's urine he took from the toilet, confronted other vloggers over "hurtful remarks" made on Twitter.

Following a tough two weeks in the eyes of the press worldwide, the family headed to VloggerFair in Seattle only to be 'removed' from the venue after getting into a verbal altercation with vloggers who had made "hurtful comments" about the miscarriage that followed the viral video.

The Christian vlogger is reported to have made "threatening comments" to vloggers who had "ridiculed the method" in which he revealed his miscarriage to the world.

He was then "ejected" from the event "to ensure other's safety".

Vlogger Megan Tonjes took to Twitter to blast the couple, writing "At the next Con you're not invited to, don't threaten violence against other vloggers?"

She continued; "Never seen(sic) anyone climb so high/fall so quickly so fast. I wasn't gonna drag this dude but you wanna threaten people and then play victim? Nah".

Her tweets have since been deleted.

Radar told Gawker that the claims were "absolutely not true", adding "If I made a threat, it was to the one person, and it was, "You need to watch out before he messes with my family."'

"What happened was there was a couple of fellow vloggers who had ridiculed our family on Twitter regarding the method we were mourning the loss, our miscarriage on Twitter".

In their latest vlog, Radar's wife Mia hints at something happening at Vlogger Fair but the footage does not show any altercation.

"Such an uproar of stuff happened today, all during Vlogger Fair", Mrs Radar says in the vlog.

"We're like sitting in the conference and Twitter's like, fireworks... Sam and Nia... it's crazy".

The Radar family posted a vlog in which Radar told his wife she was pregnant, which gained over 10m views, only to be forced to follow up with a video explaining that they had then miscarried the baby. That video gained around 3m views.

The family then attempted to return to normal, but the Ashley Madison leak forced Sam to create a video admitting that he had been a paying member of the illicit affairs website.

In his YouTube video admitting his Ashley Madison account, Radar said that the issue had been resolved, his wife had been "made aware" of it and he had been "forgiven.. by my wife and by God". He said that he had been absolved of the sin but stressed that he had never met anyone from the site, despite making two payments of $189 to the site, according to the Daily Mail Online.

"I sought forgiveness to God and he has forgiven me. So I've been completely cleansed of this sin".

"This account was opened out of pure fleshly desire and just simple curiosity".
