During the interview, Padilla asked the YouTube star about her most bizarre fan interaction, prompting her to share her recent story.
“This actually happened relatively recently. So, I have a crazed fan who actually flew in from out of state and went to the 100 Thieves compound,” she revealed. “They warned me that this guy was looking for me and they called the cops.
“He ended up staying at the airport for several days and recording videos saying things like ‘I’m not leaving until Rae picks me up, I know she wants to see me.’ and it’s really, really crazy. He’s like ‘If she goes to Coachella without me I’m going to be really really sad.'”

The streamer went on to explain that she had never interacted with this person and believed he had real mental issues because he believed she wanted him to fly out to see her.
She added: “Seeing his videos really reminded me that anyone can watch you and build this sort of parasocial mindset with any streamer or content creator they watch, and it’s dangerous.”
This isn’t the first time Rae has dealt with a stalker, she had to make her Twitter profile private in 2021 due to someone stalking her there.
