Fortnite Champ Bugha Swatted During Twitch Stream

  • Fortnite World Champion Kyle Giersdorf Was Unfortunately Swatted Over The Weekend During A Stream

Kyle Giersdorf, 16, who just two weeks ago won $3 million at the Fornite World Cup, was live streaming a gaming session inside his parents' Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania residence on Saturday when the incident occurred.

"Swatting" is the act of reporting a made up crime to police with the intent of disrupting and/or harming someone.

Giersdorf, 16, was in the middle of playing "Fortnite Arena Trios" with some friends when he stepped away for several minutes to deal with the cops.

In March, a California man was sentenced to 20 years in prison for making bogus emergency calls to authorities across the US, including one that led police to fatally shoot a Kansas man following a dispute between two online players over a $1.50 bet in the Call of Duty: WWII video game.

No one was hurt in the exchange, which Giersdorf chalks up to one of the responding officers knowing him from the neighborhood.

Giersdorf was "swatted", a potentially deadly prank when someone calls authorities and directs them to an innocent person's home.

If you listen to the exchange carefully, you can hear Giersdorf ask his father with surprise, "I got swatted?" "I got swatted", he says on the stream.

Streaming live on Twitch, Bugha caught footage of when the police arrived. "They literally pulled up", he said. Since winning the Fortnite tournament and walking away with an incredible $3 million (£2.4 million), Bugha has already faced hackers targeting his social media accounts - but this is the first (and hopefully only) time he's been swatted. "That's scary. The internet's f--ing insane".

Finch was shot and killed by police.

Swatting is becoming a big problem in gaming, and holds serious criminal consequences - 26-year-old Tyler Barriss was sentenced to 20 years after calling in a fake emergency on a Call of Duty opponent back in March, which led to the death of a 28-year-old man in Wichita.
