YouTube Star Gets Stomach Pumped After Being Slipped Date Rape Drug

By  | 

While woman are most commonly thought of as the ones who are slipped date rape drugs, men are also frequently the victims of such a heinous crime. Taylor Caniff, unfortunately, now knows what it’s like to be drugged against your will.

The 21-year-old had just arrived in London prior to his meet & greet tour date and went out to celebrate his assistant’s birthday. Somewhere during the night the former Viner “lost [his] mind” and had to be taken to the hospital, where it was discovered that he was given gamma-hydroxybutyrate acid (GHB), a date rape drug. Taylor had to have his stomach pumped and spent quite a bit of time in the hospital, so he unfortunately had to cancel his London show.

“Well, after getting GBH (date rape) in my system after attending my European assistant birthday and other things, I lost my mind and got my stomach pumped,” he wrote on Instagram following the scary incident. “I’ve been crying endlessly for missing this sold out show. I’m doing better now and I’m on my way to Birmingham. Wanna thank @realchrismiles for being a brother and helping me make it safe. And I wanna thank all of you for the well wishes. London I’m coming back and coming with more people. This is just one of those things that was out of my control. Taylor”

The YouTube star also took to Twitter to let fans know that anyone who had tickets to the London stop would be refunded in full and also apologize for the last-minute cancellation.

That is so freakin’ scary — we are beyond glad that Taylor is okay.

Fortunately, Taylor was NOT sexually assaulted after being slipped a date rape drug. These YouTubers, on the other hand, bravely spoke out about being raped:
