The Internet Reacts to Kai Cenat Being Charged Over NYC Riot


Kai Cenat’s arrest after the chaos that ensued following his promoted giveaway in NYC has been a trending topic on social media, and several celebrities have chimed in on the matter.

Hours after news got out that the popular Twitch streamer had been arrested and taken into custody, fans and various celebrities took to Twitter to give their two cents on the situation. The 21-year-old streamer held an unsanctioned giveaway for fans in Union Square in NYC when a riot broke out. 

Cenat ended up getting charged with at least two counts of inciting a riot and unlawful assembly, along with a few other charges resulting from the massive crowd that filled up Union Square. Some of the first people to comment were Offset and NLE Choppa, who criticized the NYPD for arresting Cenat.  

“How you lock Kai up for giving back to his fans….New York be trippin!!!,” Offset wrote.

NLE Choppa took a shot at “the system” not being designed for the Black community, saying, “Y’all don’t even charge the KKK When they do that negative shit but charge a successful black man for giving back. The system so designed for us to fail it don’t make sense !”
