Kai Cenat at TwitchCon 2022


Kai Cenat, the newly-crowned King of Twitch, announced on Instagram and Twitter today that he was doing a “big New York IRL stream” at 3:30 pm ET today, complete with some kind of videogame giveaway. “Be there!” he said, and they were—literally thousands of them turned out for a shot at seeing the streamer and getting some stuff.

Times Square quickly filled with people, leaving traffic unable to move; police, who according to ABC News had no advance notice of the event, were almost immediately overwhelmed. In fairly short order, the crowd turned unruly, and some minor injuries were reported.

One witness told the site that Cenat was going to hand out PlayStation 5 consoles and accessories, although it’s not clear whether any giveaway took place. An SUV that was presumed to be carrying Cenat eventually fled the scene at relatively high speed, with a number of people sitting on or clinging to it; several fell off and landed hard as the vehicle sped away.
