Cruel yobs hounded TikTok star, Cal The Dragon as he made his way through Edinburgh city centre on Saturday – a day after he performed at a popular nightclub.
Cal The Dragon, or Callum, has racked up 1.5 million followers on the popular social media app, as well as 63.9 million combined likes.
The Nottingham native, who is very distinct-looking with his long red and black coloured hair, aspires to be a professional footballer, and currently plays at an amateur level in his home town, reports Edinburgh Live.
But several feuds with other online influencers has led to a tricky couple of months for Cal, something which came to a head when several youngsters confronted him on Princes Street following an appearance at Atik nightclub on Friday night.
Footage of the encounter, which was shared on social media, shows Cal strolling down the city’s most popular street when ruthless young kids approach him.
Things soon turn sour when the group begin tormenting Cal and touching him while firing questions at him regarding his personal life and apparent feud with another famed TikTok influencer.
He was captured confronting a few members of the group for calling him various names and getting in his face.
On Friday, June 17, Cal uploaded a video of himself on the stage at Atik nightclub, saying: “Thanks so much @AtikEdinburgh.” as he got the crowd dancing along with the music.
As the group began teasing and taunting Cal on Princes Street, seemingly looking for a reaction, the two people in his company dragged him into a nearby hotel to get away from the mob.
With simple, yet effective videos of Cal playing football in his back garden, or practicing down the park, the influencer can rack up millions of views on just one single video.
Cal has also started making appearances at clubs in England, as well as the recent Parklife festival in Manchester.
