The beef between the desi YouTube influencers Saad Ur Rehman aka Ducky Bhai and Sham Idress has been topic of the town ever since Ducky ‘exposed’ Sham on his channel. The YouTuber basically alleged Sham and his wife Froggy for staging pranks, copying content and putting a filter on this comments section so critics cannot comment.
Recently the fight heated up again after Sham allegedly bullied Saad’s family. The ‘leaked’ call recording included Sham’s voice, which lead to a messy scene inside Pakistan’s YouTube community and people protesting against bullying.
Things took a further ugly turn when the couple was attacked by (allegedly) Ducky fans during their meet and greet in a mall in Karachi this Sunday. They were circled by a mob, that can be heard chanting slurs and hurling abuses at them. However, the YouTube duo also claimed that someone from the crowd came up to Froggy and punched her in the face as well.
This is one of the worst examples of how online trolling can potentially turn into real life physical abuse.
“An individual attacked my wife and this is heartbreaking. Hurting women and children is what we have come down to?” – Sham said.
On the other hand, Ducky also condemned the event and said such sort of violent outbreak at any event is condemnable.
“Just heard about the assault on Froggy at Sham’s meet and greet today. This type of disgusting behaviour should never be tolerated at any cost, especially on a woman. Fans should enjoy the occasion by staying in their limits. This is not what I or any other YouTuber encourage to do.” – Saad said.
The Twitter community has also reacted to the event, raising voice against violent and abusive behaviour. However, some also believe Froggy is cashing on the event, directly blaming Ducky for it.
#ShamIdrees I love how you stood up for your wife. Well done and more power to you both. Allah bless you. Attacking a women in blind love for a YouTuber? Disgusting and shameful!

#ShamIdrees saying abusive words to public was not the right way to handle an angry crowd. YouTube fame doesnt give you the right to abuse the PUBLIC. all #YouTube vloggers should learn how to handle the PUBLIC nowhere in WORLD celebrities start fighting with angry crowds his

You don't need to be their fan to condemn what's happened to them, you need to be a good human being to think about that. Shame the humanity doesn't exist anymore. ?
More power to you both ?@Shamidrees @QueenFroggy#ShamIdrees pic.twitter.com/3a3m9Kjtah

You can't trust such people. At the end of the day you might come to know that it is all being done for the views and likes etc. But whatever it is, they are proving themselves stupid, especially this man Sham Idrees. #shamidrees
