  22. On September 2nd, 2017, while covering a pro-immigrant rally that took place in Austin, Texas for InfoWars, Shroyer repeatedly asked questions to protestors in an attempt to emotionally provoke them. He started to question a young teenager, Olivia Williams, about her views, who in return called him a "fucking idiot", leading to international coverage of the incident. <ref>{{cite web|url= |title=Girl Swears Out Infowars Reporter |publisher=Salon |date=September 7, 2017 |accessdate=December 13, 2017}}</ref>
