Kai Cenat celebrated July 4 like he does every year, with over-the-top indoor fireworks. But fans think this year Kai Cenat’s fireworks stream was most likely staged.

Kai Cenat’s July 4 stream called Firework Wars featured Jimmy “Mr Beast” Donaldson, so it was already set to be one of his biggest livestreams. However, clips from the stream are now making the rounds for an entirely different reason. Apparently, Kai Cenat’s room was set on fire by fellow AMP creator Davis as part of their annual antics.

The chaotic video started with Davis entering Kai Cenat’s room with a canister and setting all his crackers on fire. According to Kai, he had stacked them for defensive purposes, but the same fireworks ended up setting his entire room on fire.

Fortunately everyone, including Mr Beast, had left the room before the fire blurred the camera to the point where nothing was visible. However, a quick rewatch of the clip will reveal some curious details.

Kai Cenat may have faked the July 4 fireworks stream

If you rewatch the video, you’ll notice that the seemingly normal room actually has some minor differences from Kai Cenat’s usual setup. The background is all the same, but the placement of pillars is different than usual.

One may argue that it may be due to the camera angle, but the spot where the pillars on top of the door end are totally different in both clips, which suggests that the July 4 stream may have taken place on a set. If this is true, it means that the whole thing was a pre-planned setup, which is not entirely a bad thing.

The Firework Wars stream was extremely risky and dangerous, and if it had been real and Kai wasn’t aware of it, it could have caused serious injury. While it was still pretty reckless, fans are glad no one was hurt.
