Kai Cenat breaks his silence on the riots in New York

Twitch streamer Kai Cenat broke his silence after his New York giveaway sparked an uproar.

“I’m beyond disappointed in everyone who was disruptive that day,” he told viewers. “I had good intentions with the whole thing and none of it was my intention.”

Cenat urged his online followers to come to Union Square and thousands came. He promised to give away free PlayStation consoles, as well as gift cards and other items. Later in the afternoon, the crowd began to get noisy, and some injured others by throwing heavy objects.

He faces charges of incitement to riot, unlawful assembly “and several other charges,” NYPD department head Jeffrey Maddrey told NBC New York.

“Ever since I started it all like this, my dream has been to want to give back to the community that has made me who I am,” Cenat continued. “After Friday, I realized how much power and influence I have over people.”

The streamer added that going forward he will be using the right channels and doing it “right”. “We all need to do better, from the citizens of New York to the police, all need to be treated with equal respect.”
