Wife deletes man's YouTube account, he goes to fight with Google at the company's office
A YouTuber, was arrested on Sunday after he showed up at Google's Mountain View, California headquarters and threatened for violence believing that his only video on how to get rich quickly on YouTube was taken down by the company. What he didn't know was that it was his wife who had actually deleted his video and his account.
According to BuzzFeed, Samantha Long, wife of 33-year-old YouTuber Kyle Long, was concerned about her husband's mental health which is why she deleted the account. Kyle Long has had a history of mental health issues and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder after he completed his five years of imprisonment for drunk driving in 2002 that claimed the life of his close friend.
His wife, Samantha Long, told the website that she had deleted his account which had just one "rambling" and "bizarre" video on guide for how to become rich quickly. She said that she was afraid to tell him because she didn't how he would react in front their kids. " He was mad initially, but I said I didn't know what happened," she told BuzzFeed. She said that he was obsessed with his video and would tell his family and friends that Google would pay him in millions once they came to know of his ideas.
His wife said that after he found that his video was deleted he thought that YouTube had deleted it. He then drove over 3,300 miles, all the way from Waterville, Maine to Google's headquarter in California with an intention to get his account revoked and directly pitch in the idea to the company. "He made me sit down, and he did a mock presentation to me," she told the website.
He was arrested by the Mountain View police on suspicion of creating violence at the company. The police recovered three baseball bats from his car after he was arrested some two miles away from the headquarter.
Long's father Kevin Long told the website that he believed that his crazy idea would help solve the world's hunger problem and make everyone a millionaire.
