Kai Cenat Shuts Down New York CityAug 05, 2023
I appreciate everyone who showed up for you, bro, it's safe, yeah, but find us now so I can see, yeah, look, look, look, look, ready, bro, you feel me, I'm not gonna lie, it feels so good to be here as a hometown, as if it were home. the advantage we have at home look at this, look at this point, look at them, they're standing like a community, bro, I bet we're out, guys, oh my god, oh, make sure you protect Chris, he's got the camera, you have the mafia. Yeah, the amp here, man, yeah, let me get off work here, in Lower Manhattan, and you can watch the news, there's helicopters flying over, that's Union Square Park, the park has been invaded and basically overrun by people, look at the crowds of people there, in fact, Subway.
Lines, bus lanes, they're passing through Union Square, it's a big subway station in Manhattan, apparently what happened here is that a popular Twitch streamer was holding a video game giveaway. If you don't know what Twitch is, you're not alone. I barely know what. Apparently it's a platform where you can watch other people play video games, which is what I often mean, it's incredibly boring, but obviously it exists, so Kai Sanat was going to do a giveaway, he announced it on his Instagram account and check this out , it's basically turned into a car, they're on top of the cars, yes this is Union Square, well Sandra, as you can see, I'm standing next to the entrance to the Union Square subway station, where it looks like I was Closed due to construction, but look.
On top of that, that's what's happening on top of the subway station entrance. I can't even count countless people up there, they're going up right now, as you can see, in fact, if Hector you can move to your left. They're actually on top of the statue here in Union Square. In fact, I have a couple of his followers here with me who can explain to us what they expected, what happened, uh, young man, give me your name real quick and tell us. I, uh, why did you come here? What did you expect to happen, what happened, okay my name is Dylan quantavius um basically as you know it's a kaisenat Venom all the members of the amp oh I know but they stopped you know we got together a bit. and greeting and a gift for the fans, gift of what was the understanding, as I understand it, video game accessories for ps5, uh, PCS, but I don't think they'll actually give away a real PC because how is anyone going to carry that?
I'm pretty sure they are gift cards for them to then go and get the P5. It's safe to assume that you and your friends came here thinking you'd get some gifts. It's that right, not that we're thinking, but there's a chance to do it because you. I know there are so many people and there is so much you can give. Has any of that happened? He is here? um he's here right now, yeah, and they were giving out, but people know people are being people, there's so many people here, people are pushing. So you can't really organize it, okay?
And before we started you were telling me that, in your own words, that some people here were annoying, explain to me what he saw and what you meant by that. Well, you know you can. I see there's obviously no excuse for what happened, but you know things like that happen all the time, you know people are reckless, it's New York City. Things like this happen every day, well I wouldn't say every day, thank you and stay safe. You can see Sandra, we have also heard and seen incidents with construction equipment behind me. I'm going to show you a live look, the latest live look again of what's happening.
Construction equipment is being thrown here, we saw smoke, not sure if that was a fire or some kind of smoke bomb again. This was all sparked by a Twitch streamer, a social media influencer. He has 20 million followers. He asked everyone to come meet him here in Union Square for what was a PlayStation 5 giveaway at four in the afternoon. apparently we also heard that people showed up only to find out there were no gifts and as you heard he's here in a moment he was live streaming in a van nearby but he came out when you heard he's here waving.
The fans of him even watched the head of the Mother Department here having objects thrown at him. The cops are obviously outnumbered here. I don't want to interrupt you for a second right now because you're looking at live footage of a car that was literally covered in people and we believe that was the vehicle that had Kai sanat in it, which as you can see now, looked like he might have been abandoning the area, that's why you're seeing that crowd chasing him, that's it, that's the vehicle right there that they think Kai sanat is in right now, since Stefan was saying he was there, he was in the crowd for a time, but this was clearly an out of control crowd, so no gifts or gifts were given out. whatever getting in the car, but clearly you're looking at a very dangerous situation with this car now driving pretty fast with those people hanging on to the side and on top of it.
It's conscious, it's amazing why they don't stop. Let these people get out of the car and, oh, and then it just fell, someone fell. Okay, joining us now is Bob Boyce, former NYPD cop to talk more about this situation. Bob, can you hear us? They are Liz and Sandra Bookman's show. Okay we know you're on the phone I don't know if you have a chance to see what's going on in Union Square but tell us a little bit about police procedure obviously this was a situation that the police weren't expecting so how come they start to take the top? hand over crowd control here, so they call level three mobilization which is for the entire
city, but there will be cars from all the electoral districts of the
citythat will arrive there, first they will have to ride the stage and they will have to meet and then they will have to do it at some point.
Come in, disperse the crowd now, someone should be using a megaphone right now, disgusting this crowd. I don't know if they're doing it yet but that's what usually happens generally speaking, they'll take you on the Aid Net effect and start spreading you around to cut it off as best they can, it seems like right now you have our own mafia and they have They have to put order in it, but in the meantime units are arriving throughout the city, they will have to do the best they can. But what challenge does this pose for law enforcement?
Look, we've seen similar things at the Jersey Shore. Someone sends out an announcement on social media that there's going to be a party and the next thing you know, you have 3,000 people. on a beach at 11 o'clock at night this seems like something similar: we're giving out freebies in Union Square at four o'clock and the next thing you know, five six thousand people show up and they're not getting the freebies, so they start acting the hard part. that it is up to the department to handle this and prevent it from becoming some kind of arm wrestling match. we have floss Bob Boyce, he's on the phone, we're going to try to reset him.
