Twitch Streamer “Kai Cenat” Riot: NYC Mayor Suspects “Outside Influencers” in Kai Cenat Giveaway Riot – In a shocking turn of events, New York City Mayor Eric Adams has suggested that the chaotic riot that erupted during Twitch star Kai Cenat’s IRL giveaway could have been instigated by “outside influencers.”
Mayor Adams proposed that individuals not aligned with Cenat’s fan base deliberately exacerbated the situation. He voiced concerns that these “outside influencers” may have intentionally incited chaos by bringing disruptive items and aggravating the attendees.

Kai Cenat’s in-person giveaway event in New York City drew thousands of eager fans seeking free items. However, the event quickly spiraled into a riot, prompting charges against Cenat by the NYPD.
Mayor Adams’ theory raises questions about the intentions of these “outside influencers.” Were they seeking attention, exploiting the event’s hype, or pursuing personal agendas? The presence of such provocateurs highlights security concerns for large-scale, online-driven real-life events.
“We are further looking into were there even some outside agitators. You don’t come to get free Game Boys and bring smoke bombs and bring M-80s and other disruptive items,” said Adams.
Following his arrest, Kai Cenat has remained silent, possibly due to legal advice. His perspective on the incident could provide valuable insight into the lead-up to the riot. With approximately half of the arrested individuals under 18, the incident highlights the legal implications of events that draw younger crowds. It also prompts discussions about the responsibilities of influencers organizing such gatherings.
While Kai Cenat has yet to comment, his organization, AMP, may shed light on the incident’s context and contributing factors. Mayor Adams’ suspicion of “outside influencers” introduces a new layer to the narrative. As the investigation progresses, it remains to be seen if this event prompts reevaluations of how online figures interact with their audiences in real-life settings.
