On May 25, 2023 Daniel had a public meltdown involving multiple stores. The meltdown began at a Häagen-Dazs ice cream shop after Daniel was kicked out. Daniel's subsequent freakout was recorded by some fans and uploaded to Reddit by user "Dlarstv."
Dlarstv's Summary[edit | edit source]
Dlarstv also posted a summary of the incident to Reddit.
"Okay so it all started when we walked to haagen daz [sic], his last seen location. He was talking to a couple kids inside the store and we just watched. After a while the manager started asking why people were recording him and that’s when she was informed about daniel [sic]. I was outside of the store and when she tried to [kick him out] daniel [sic] refused and punched her in the face. He was then thrown out by mythbusters [sic] man and that’s when he started freaking out. He walked to the middle of the street and started screaming and saying he’s a celebrity and that’s why he got kicked out, which is when he called everyone the N word [sic]. After that he walked into an empty, what looked like [a] crystal store and walked to the back and kneeled down saying he needs the paramedics [claiming he had been attacked]. He started hitting himself and throwing stuff in the store like the mirror. After he walked out of that store I was keeping my distance and he ran away into the abyss while still screaming and rambling. A couple homeless people also tried to fight him during it because he was freaking out. After a while I spotted him again and he seemed to calm down while talking to someone on the phone."
Calm Before the Storm[edit | edit source]
Daniel was being filmed by a couple of fans in the store before he was kicked out. In the first video uploaded by Reddit user, "Adayapan," a fan asks for, "John Summit," (the same man referenced in the Fake Security Incident), and if Daniel had showered recently. Daniel continuously asks them to leave, further claiming that, "The police are on their way," but this did little to dissuade them.
Another video uploaded by, "Adayapan," shows Daniel being filmed from outside the store and an employee approaches and asks why they are filming him. At first, he claimed that they are his security, but after being pressed, he answers that he is a pedophile.
The Storm[edit | edit source]
Upon hearing this, the female employee took it upon herself to kick him out. As reported by Dlarstv, Daniel responded by physically assaulting her. This prompted the male employee to step in, leading to events of the video, in which Daniel is being tossed out of the ice cream store.
After being kicked down the stairs, Daniel's meltdown got worse, culminating in him screaming the n word.
This eventually progressed to self harm.
Then, destruction of property.
Daniel's Response[edit | edit source]
After things had calmed down, Daniel was approached by more fans who wanted to know what happened, to which he gave his side of the story.
Daniel: We called police, we called security, no one was coming out. So the police literally said, well, we're not coming out because no crime is committed.
Daniel: So I didn't know what to do, so I literally on public air pretty much, you know, like on the media. Literally, because I had to do something, right?
Daniel: To knock everything down and get everybody to stop. People were following me blocked.
Videographer: I bet
Daniel: I mean, that's still going on. You're the, I want to say in 10 minutes, you're the sixth person that spotted me.
Videographer: Holy shit. That's a lot.
Daniel: I'm up there now.
Videographer: I see.
Daniel: I ain't coming down.
Videographer: I see.
Daniel: We are going media silent.
Videographer: I see. I do not blame you at all.
Daniel: But even if I go media silent, that's not going to help.
Videographer: No. Those Reddit, crazy Redditors always fucking find it.
Daniel: So the issue is, I ended up basically, because we had two people in the area that yelled, we have guns. I literally screamed, I will murder everybody in this area.
Videographer: Holy shit Daniel you can't be saying that stuff, man.
Daniel: But here's the thing. What am I supposed to do if somebody says they have a gun?
Videographer: I mean...
Daniel: I had to, you see what I mean? I had to protect myself.
Daniel: The police we were on the phone with, because we called 911. They literally said there's still no crime committed if the fans stop now. Good.
Videographer: I see.
Daniel: I'm sitting there going like, did I just get the, like, the fact that people are yelling guns and all this stuff, and yet I'm like threatening murder. That's on public media and they're saying no crime is committed. What am I supposed to do?
Videographer: Yeah, its not yeah...
Daniel: Like, it's of that level now that like, nobody, not even the label, the label's just learning my fanbase.
Videographer: Really? Just now?
Daniel: Just now. And they're...
Early the next day, Daniel posted a series of TikToks in which he denied the claim made by Dlarstv that he had hit the female employee.
He also claimed that since the event took place on May 25, the event tainted his late grandmother's birthday.
The following day, Daniel uploaded his recounting of events.
So, this is why yesterday I said what I said in public. I raised my fist, and I knocked over those things in public inside the store. So those trolls that were videotaping me were trying to get me kicked out of the restaurant for something that I didn't do. They were asking me very, very inappropriate questions. They were also impersonating to be my security when I said I don't have security and I don't know their company, so they need to please leave. They refused to leave, and they basically started creating a scene to where other people in the location started watching. It caught the attention of the restaurant manager. The restaurant manager then got involved, went over, you can see it on video, went over to the trolls that were claiming they were, aka, security, which is not true, and asked them to leave me alone. They refused to leave me alone, and they said that I touched children. There's not proof of that. There's never been proof of that. It's all a lie. Okay? So what they did was they got on their phone. They showed this person, literally the subreddit, the Daniel Larson subreddit, this manager at this restaurant. The manager believed it, came back in, asked me to leave. When I said why, I didn't do anything, they said that I was a pedophile and that I touched children live, like publicly, to where everybody in the entire location could hear. Okay? At that point of time, there was about 10 cameras from people in the location, 10 cameras on me. I overheard one of the people from the other side of the restaurant say, "I have a gun on me". And that is what escalated everything. Okay? Because I don't mess around with threats like that. I don't. So I said, okay, I will leave. Okay? They basically got aggressive. You can't see it very clear, but when I was coming out of the restaurant door, pretty much the front door, when I was leaving, that guy that is in the picture, in the video, pushed me out the door. Okay? My backpack went flying. It fell on the ground. Okay? And I overheard, you can't really hear it on the video because it came from like the other end of the courtyard area, you know, the street. So you can't hear this person, but the same guy, I'm guessing that was inside, was once again outside, claimed he had a gun. And at that point I started escalating because it was like, you know, it was just a really bad situation that I was blackmailed to be in. I called the police. The police never showed up and they said no crime was committed. So what am I supposed to do if the police don't show up? If they're saying that there's no crime committed and yet I'm being completely blackmailed by these fans, these trolls, until I get permanently banned for life from these places. It's not okay. Story short, that's what happened. And I panicked and I felt like I had to defend myself. I'm a celebrity and people shouldn't come up to me and try to put hands on me 24-7. That's what security is for. You know, like I put up with too much and that's the hard truth right now is this needs to, people need to understand now what I'm going through and what I've been trying to say and what I've been trying to get heard that I've been getting called a liar about because it's not okay. So I hope this, all these Reddit trolls, everybody from past management, I hope they all get exposed and they get arrested. And I hope my court cases get lifted because it's ruined my life. It's ruined my friendship with my family and it's ruined so much of my life. It pisses me off.
