On Sunday, March 17th of 2019, hip-hop and pop culture podcaster Adam22 was threatened with a gun during a live stream of his show No Jumper. Adam22's studio is located on Melrose Ave in Los Angeles, an area of heavy foot traffic in the West Hollywood district. Just after having food delivered to his studio space, Adam22 was confronted by a man who put a gun to his head and said: "Give me all of your money."

When the attempted robbery was happening, Adam22 first believed the ordeal was a joke, as he admitted in an interview with DramaAlert's Keemstar. "I thought that it was a prank. Then over the course of the two or three seconds that the gun was pointed at me, I'm processing the fact that it wasn't a joke."

Immediately, Adam22's security had a gun pointed on the assailant and they were able to get the guy on the ground. The police were quickly called to the scene and the gunman was taken into their custody. The police did not comment whether the firearm was real, however, luckily no shots were fired. To learn more about this story and Adam22's experience, check out the interview he and his girlfriend Lena gave to Logan Paul's Impaulsive podcast.
