Greg uploaded "Shiloh Threatened Me" on July 16, 2011. In the video, he explains that he fled his Washington home because of Shiloh's threats. In the video, he mentions that he was afraid of people she knows that want to hurt him. (Source)
After watching the video, some viewers were left scratching their heads about Greg fearing Shiloh and these unnamed people that want to hurt him. Many began to refer to these people as the "Canadian Mafia", most likely in a mocking manner as many people believed Shiloh was lying. The term caught on so fast that Shiloh even wrote about it in her blog post reply to Greg's video the next day. (Source)
The "Canadian Mafia" rumor was even mentioned in web articles written about Greg and Shiloh's relationship. (Source)
In Shiloh's 2019 interview with Chris Hansen, she revealed it was her father and his friends who threatened to hurt Greg. She explains early in her relationship with Greg, she overheard her father threatening Greg. After that she didn't speak to her father for 2 years. After her chaotic, public breakup with Greg, she found out her father and his friends wanted to hurt Greg and her father was ready to go to jail over it. She believes if she didn't stop them, they would have killed Greg. (Source)
After this particular drama had settled, people would often use the term as a warning in a joking manner in the comments of Greg's social media.
After 2011, the meme essentially disappeared and is no longer used.
