After the discovery of a credible threat against his life, journalist Tim Pool was forced to shut down an upcoming musical appearance in Nashville, Tennessee, over concerns that the death threat could materialize and harm attendees.

Pool stated on Twitter that he had considered proceeding with the show, but that in the interest of public safety, he had decided to err on the side of caution.

"Due to a credible death threat against me our show at Red Neck Riviera has been canceled," Pool announced on social media, adding: "I said f*ck em but I was warned other people could get hurt and we can't risk other people's safety."

In a follow-up Saturday tweet, Pool said that the death threat in question was "compounded by intel suggesting an attempt was actually being made."

The show, which had been scheduled to take place at RedNeck Riviera Bar & BBQ, would have featured music and commentary from Pool, also the host of Timcast IRL, a popular political commentary and culture podcast.

Country music star John Rich, co-founder of the whiskey brand Redneck Riviera and the restaurant and bar of the same name, expressed regret that Pool's preformance had to be canceled. "I hate this, but downtown Nashville on a Saturday is absolutely packed. The safety of the people comes first," Rich said.

This isn't the first time that Pool has received interference from attempts to shut down his shows. In an interview with the Daily Wire, Pool told Candace Owens that his show had been "swatted" multiple times—eight, in fact, he said.

Swatting, a practice that originated to prank live streamers, uses a fake threat to force law enforcement to interrupt an event. Swatters use fake bomb threats, terrorist messaging, and more to lure authorities to the desired target. Pool says that his shows have been interrupted by such efforts more than a few times before.
