IShowSpeed Swatting

The famous Youtube Streamer IShowSpeed got swatted on August 8th, 2021. Swatting is a type of prank when a streamer’s address gets leaked and put out to the public and someone calls the police in the area of the streamer and tells the police that the streamer is going to do something terrible to somebody or a false emergency. Nobody wants to go through Swatting, but sometimes people are cruel and do this to someone without them knowing. Many streamers are being careful because Swatting cases have risen in the past couple of months.

Popular streamer Adin Ross also got swatted and the police had guns on him. There have been many more cases of swatting in the past even on people that aren’t famous or they don’t even stream. There have been situations where the person who gets swatted gets killed or wounded by police but thankfully this didn’t happen to IShowSpeed.
