An IRL streamer who traveled to Japan with the intention of intimidating individuals on public transportation received more than he bargained for when a bystander resisted him.
Kick streamer JohnnySomali was on a train in Japan when he began yelling to fellow riders that he was going to “do Hiroshima and Nagasaki again.” The streamer said: “You know Hiroshima, Nagasaki? Why did you do Pearl Harbour? You know what we do to you. We destroy, because you don’t know how to behave. We will do it again, you understand?”
Several people on the train stepped away from the streamer throughout his tirade, indicating that it definitely made other commuters uneasy. This didn’t stop him from making even worse remarks, either. The streamer then turned to one of the passengers and addressed him directly, shouting: “I swear to God. You don’t understand our power. You don’t understand. Hiroshima, Nagasaki, you know? We’re going to do it again. You don’t know history?” After a while, one of the other travelers had had enough and got up to speak with the streamer, telling him to “just leave him alone.”
The newcomer yelled at the streamer, telling him to stop bothering everyone else and calling him “obnoxious.”
The stranger responded, “Texas, buddy,” when the streamer asked him where he was from. The streamer’s issues continued after that. When he was sighted in public, a motorcyclist who had seen his prior streams and recognized him as the same streamer approached him about the remarks he had made in another viral video. In this video, the streamer is approached after the man dismounts his bike and asks, “Are you racist?”
