Taylor Caniff had to face quite an unfortunate situation this past weekend. The social media star announced that his scheduled show in London for his tour on May 28 would be canceled due to an "unforeseen circumstance" that ended in him taking a trip to the hospital instead.
The Internet personality made an announcement on social media that he had been given a drug at his assistant's birthday party, and he had to get his stomach pumped to get the substance out of his system. He shared the announcement on Instagram, writing the details of what went down in the caption.
"Well, after getting GHB (date rape) in my system after attending my European assistant birthday and other things. I lost my mind and got my stomach pumped. I've been crying endlessly for missing this sold out show. I'm doing better now and i'm on my way to Birmingham," he wrote.
"Wanna thank @realchrismiles for being a brother and helping me make it safe. And i wanna thank all of you for the well wish's. London i'm coming back and coming with more people. This is just one of those things that [was] out of my control. Taylor"

Recovering now....london i can't even explain how sorry i am.
He shared more information on Twitter and apologized to his fans and thanked them for their love and support with a long message.
"I can't sleep at the moment...I'm heartbroken this situation went down at magcon last year...I've realized life is about learning and making mistakes," he said. "I've never been so scared in my life."
"People don't wanna see me winning and i understand that now," he wrote and clarified the rumors that he had gotten too intoxicated to attend his own event which he said were "wrong."
Refunds are being offered for the meet and greet event, and Taylor is urging fans to get tickets to a different city and promised to continue on with the rest of his appearances despite the unfortunate situation he had to face.
This is something that could happen to anyone and it is a super serious situation and super scary. We hope that Taylor stays safe and that something like that never happens to him again.
