After fabricating a swatting incident during one of his latest livestreams, which led to chaos in a Miami hotel, Yousef “Fousey” Saleh Eraket has once again captured the internet’s attention.
During a Kick livestream that took place on Tuesday, Aug. 22, Fousey got a call from someone who said they were banned from the platform. The caller started harassing him. In response to the harassment, the popular streamer called the police, telling them that the caller was in possession of a gun and had threatened him.

“Send the f**king cops! Send the cops,” he exclaimed. “There’s a gun to my head right now. There’s a gun to my head. Ma’am, ma’am, he left. Ma’am he left, there’s a gun to my head.”
According to TMZ, when the police arrived on the scene, the 33-year-old called them “dumb as f***,” which resulted in him getting placed in handcuffs.
After accidentally letting the N-word slip as he rapped along to J. Cole’s “Love Yourz” during a recent livestream, Fousey began to freak out, in fear that he might get canceled.
Following the incident, fans began to worry about the YouTuber’s mental health, as he has been the latest victim of many swatting incidents, and of course, walking on a busy freeway.
According to the Miami Police Department, officers did not arrest Fousey, but instead decided that he needed to be taken to the hospital for a mental health assessment.
The hospitalization followed yet another swatting incident that took place on Sunday, Aug. 20, when he and fellow streamer Sneako were live streaming inside Sneako’s apartment. This incident took place before the two headed to Lil Pump’s pool party, according to HotNewHipHop.
Fousey was recently forced to leave a restaurant after a bomb threat was reported during his stream on Aug. 19.
The 33-year-old streamer posted a video to X on Aug. 20, with the caption, “STOP CALLING THE COPS ON ME,” pleading with the trolls to stop the false calls.
In the video footage, he shows himself asking police officers to “ruin the swatters’ lives if they are caught.”
According to sources familiar with the case, the persistent harassment, threats, and swatting incidents have taken a toll on him.
