The YouTuber concocting his foul dish (Picture: YouTube)
A YouTube wannabe has ended up in police custody and has confessed to his crimes after his foul play went too far.
It’s not unusual to see content creators do some weird stuff online, as they compete for attention on platforms like Twitch and YouTube. Like that time a streamer was accused of cooking crack in a car park (even though she wasn’t).
Sometimes their antics go too far, however, with one example being Johnny Somali, who was recently found guilty of being a nuisance in Japan and now faces banishment from the country.
That’s nothing, though, compared to the actions of a Brussels-based YouTuber who was apprehended for pouring buckets filled with faeces, oil, and food onto the heads of unsuspecting victims.
The YouTuber, nicknamed YaNike, has recorded several videos where he pours buckets of filth over people on city trains in Brussels.
The videos are all called *Surprise du chef*, and in the latest one YaNike is seen mixing a bucket with different liquids including *caca de chien*, which translates to ‘dog poo’, before pouring it over an unsuspecting person on a train.
The Brussels Public Transport Organisation (STIB) filed charges against YaNike and he was later arrested.
YaNike was indicted for assault and battery, and damaging property, according to Politico, and a spokesperson for the prosecutor’s office said:
‘Videos of these events were posted on social networks, with the aim of getting as many likes as possible.’
YaNike confessed to the charges, according to Brussels Signal, and a spokesperson from the city’s train organisation said:
‘It is intolerable to harm our customers, who find themselves humiliated.‘
Despite being willing to go to such extreme lengths for attention, YaNike’s foul play has gained him less than 300 followers on YouTube and Instagram.
