NPN 2N2222 transistor component as switch circuit

I have watched a video on the internet. And I do my project following this and have trouble using a PNP 2n2222 transistor. It normally allows current to flow except when you supply the base with a little more current than the collector? I wasn’t able to get the PNP to work in a reliable way. I did connect the base to the ground and I’m pretty sure it melted?! Could anyone explain why that happens?

Have you solved your question? I can draw a wiring diagram for you, if it's still relevant.
