Popular YouTuber Adam Saleh revealed in a recent vlog that police were called to his home after a few suspicious cars were seen making the rounds in his neighborhood.
Police told Saleh that a neighbor had reported the suspicious vehicles driving around his neighborhood, and that the cars could have a possible connection to Saleh’s celebrity status.
He admitted that both fans and haters alike will approach his house on occasion, and asked that they please desist for the sake of his family and their privacy.
“It’s not even funny, man,” he said. “Stop that shit. ...please, with all due respect, do not come to my house. [The house] is mainly for my family to live, and I don’t want to put them through that.”
Saleh admitted that he was initially nervous about the police’s presence in his home, stating that he has had bad experiences with law enforcement in the past.
While police asked for him by name and inquired about his profession, Saleh’s account doesn’t quite clarify if the drivers in question or the reporting neighbor had mentioned his YouTube fame in relation to the incident.
Saleh isn’t the only YouTuber to have his address made public to overly enthusiastic fans, either. Current YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has likewise addressed the issue, citing entire classes of schoolchildren and parents as “screaming” outside of his home in previous years.
“Just because you found my address doesn’t mean you found an invitation for you to come over,” he said of the visitors.
Saleh's vlog marks another case in the history of many YouTubers who have confronted invasions of their personal privacy by fans.
