1. When he shared his unusual anti-theft strategy he keeps in his wallet
Knight shared the unusual thing he keeps in his wallet in case someone ever steals it—a Smoothie King card with a very harsh note written on it. The note reads, “FUCK YOU FOR STEALING MY WALLET YOU CHODE. ENJOY THIS UNREDEEMABLE SMOOTHIE KING CARD”.
2. When a Jell-O tweet got him banned from Twitter
Last year, Knight was locked out of his personal Twitter for 12 hours for tweeting about Jell-O two years earlier. The tweet read, “Sext: Pay someone to kill me and hide my dead body in jello. Buy a ouija board. Find the jello. We quote The Office back and forth forever.” We wish we were kidding about this.
3. When he got sexual with TGI Fridays
Back in 2016, the musician tweeted about wanting to go to TGI Fridays. The popular restaurant chain saw it and said they’d tread him “real nice.” Knight, of course, had to take it to the next level that was too ridiculous not to laugh at.

4. When he shared a screenshot of his ridiculous open tabs
Knight shared a screenshot of some open tabs he had on his phone, prompting him to ask himself why he’s a “psychopath.” The three Google searches include him asking for Victoria Justice’s location, searching for a reason behind his cat’s moods and just “eggplant purple.” We don’t know what it all means, but it’s pretty hilarious.
5. When he gave TMI back in 2012
If you go back to Knight’s pre-2014 tweets, it’s a pretty interesting place. In 2012, he hadn’t yet adopted his signature caps lock tweeting style but was still just as weird online. Exhibit A is this tweet where he just said his “butthole tastes like Dr. Pepper Cola.” Thanks for the info, Awsten.

6. When his friend convinced fans he was in Panic! At The Disco
Knight’s friend and YouTuber/rapper Elijah Daniel apparently decided to start telling people that Knight was actually in Panic! At The Disco. Knight said that one girl “wouldn’t let go” of him when she was told the false news, which is pretty ridiculous to picture.
7. When he shared this unusual vision of what he wanted Waterparks to sound like
Sometimes, it can be hard to put a band’s sound into words, even for artists in that band. However, Knight described his aspirations for his band in an unusual way, but we sort of get where he’s coming from. He tweeted he wanted “WATERPARKS TO BE GOTH COLDPLAY THAT’S ALLOWED TO SAY THE FUCK WORD.” Honestly, it makes sense.

8. When he ordered salmon at a Denny’s gas station for some godforsaken reason
The musician shared a story earlier this year about when he first moved to L.A. He was apparently so tired and wanted to eat something healthy, but his friend wanted to stop at Denny’s. Therefore, he ordered salmon, and it looked pretty sketch. He later realized he was at a Denny’s that was connected to a gas station. Honestly, we felt bad for him, but that would happen to Knight and Knight only.

9. When he was ignored by a fan at Warped Tour
The frontman shared a story about waving to a fan at Warped Tour wearing a Waterparks shirt who totally ignored him, and it honestly still makes us die laughing to imagine.
10. When his mom adorably supported his AltPress cover
When Knight graced our cover back in 2018, his mom wanted to show her support and ordered 12 copies of it. He shared a picture of her proudly displaying all of them, and it was both laugh-out-loud funny and cute.
