iShowSpeed said in the clip: “Yo, Scotland’s hella f****** lit man, holy s***balls! Look at f****** Scotland!”
Then, some of the people began climbing on top of the vehicle, sparking fears inside the car.
One of the people in the car told him: “Careful, they’re on the car.”
“They’re on the f****** car!” the streamer said. “Oh my god. Holy sh**.”
Thankfully, the clip shows the vehicle making its way clear of the crowd, showing the fans in their dozens watching Speed leave.
It bore more than a passing resemblance to a recent incident involving fellow streamer Kai Cenat. On 5 August, Kai held a huge giveaway at Union Square that saw gaming consoles given away.
More than 6,000 people were said to have attended the event which soon turned sour. Footage showed teens damaging cars, throwing objects, fighting and blasting fire extinguishers.
The NYPD arrested 65 people, including 30 minors, on counts from disorderly conduct to assaulting a police officer.
