With the advent of Uber, more and more users are looking to increase their safety options, following a string of horror stories surrounding the service – one of which happened to popular beauty YouTuber Cole Carrigan, leaving him shell shocked.

Carrigan uploaded a joint video with fellow YouTuber Eden the Doll on June 11, where the pair recounted their terrifying trip in a nighttime Uber.

According to the duo, they decided to hit up their favorite taco truck to end their night out when they were approached by a group of belligerent bystanders – an odd occurrence to Carrigan, who claimed that the area was generally well-to-do.

Carrigan and Eden then hopped back in their Uber while the bystanders continued to harass them, with one of the strangers asking Carrigan to roll down his window while yelling homophobic slurs.

Eventually, another member of the group pulled out a gun and fired a shot at the vehicle, shattering the driver’s side window.

Footage from the incident shows Carrigan asking if he should call law enforcement to the scene, with his Uber driver asking them to “please” refrain from involving the police and saying that he “didn’t want to go to prison.

Carrigan later revealed that the driver was also packing heat, which they claimed scared the bystanders off – a fact that Carrigan was immensely grateful for.

Eden felt that the two were targeted for their sexual identities, with the two having just left a Pride event at the time of the incident.

“We were literally held at fucking gunpoint,” Carrigan recalled. “That’s why we had to sit down and share our story. If we didn’t – I cannot let something like this just be swept under the rug.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Carrigan has been allegedly targeted for his sexuality, either; the YouTuber uploaded an Instagram story in early May accusing social media star Cameron Dallas of attacking him in his own home due to his status as a gay man, claiming that Dallas had thrown water on him during a house party.

YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie Kjellberg defended Elon Musk during his October 18 upload. The Swedish star hit out at those getting upset over the Tesla CEO’s viral meme about changing the price of the Model S.

The one thing PewDiePie and Elon Musk have in common is their love of memes. The YouTube star even had the tech giant host an episode of his popular Meme Review show back in 2019 that has over 26 million views.

The Tesla CEO faced backlash from critics in October after tweeting that the Model S price was being changed to $69,420. The YouTuber defended the billionaire during his latest upload, and argued that people can’t take a joke.

PewDiePie defends Elon Musk’s Model S meme

During his October 18 episode of Last Week I Asked You, Pewds addressed the criticism Elon Musk received from some over a tweet he made on October 14 about the Model S price change.

“I saw some people being so butthurt over this. It’s like, dude, it’s just a joke. I’m sure Elon knows it’s ironic,” he said, before he jokingly imitated critics in a baby voice. “So childish, he’s like a 12-year old! … Yeah, that’s the joke! Ever hear of fun?”

The creator then applauded the CEO for being attuned to meme culture: “You just want another overweight, gray-haired, boomer billionaire? I don’t. I think we have enough of that!”

The tweet that PewDiePie was referencing was made on October 14 when Musk posted, “The gauntlet has been thrown down! The prophecy will be fulfilled. Model S price changes to $69,420 tonight!”

The joke exploded on the social media platform, instantly going viral with over 330k likes and 35k retweets. While many found the meme to be hilarious, some critics hit out at the CEO for being irresponsible with the company’s prices.

This isn’t the only time PewDiePie has defended Elon. In past uploads, the 30-year-old has admitted to viewers that he’s admired the tech CEO for his innovations while still being wired into internet culture.

With Kjellberg being so fond of the tech giant, maybe the Tesla owner will someday return as a guest host on Meme Review. Maybe the Swede could also convince the billionaire to show up for a round of Among Us – now that would be entertainment gold.
