Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf, the 16-year-old Fortnite World Cup champion, was swatted yesterday while streaming on Twitch.
A clip of the stream shows Giersdorf abruptly exit the camera’s view, indicating the moment his father alerted him to the armed police at the door. A subsequent clip captured the streamer’s return and explanation of events: “Yeah, I got swatted… I was lucky because the one officer, he lives in our neighborhood… They come in with guns, bro. They literally pulled up.”
No one was physically harmed during the incident.
