Pakistani-Canadian Youtubers Sham Idrees and Queen Froggy were attacked by a mob in Karachi on Sunday evening as they made their way to Ocean Mall for a meet and greet with their fans.
Part of an ongoing conflict between the Canadian vloggers and Pakistani Youtuber Ducky Bhai, the escalation was recorded on video when fans of ‘Ducky Bhai’ arrived at the venue and started harassing Sham and Froggy to the point of physical manhandling.
After the video became viral, Sham took to social media to blame Ducky for the assault.

Froggy also posted a video on Youtube, where she explained what had happened.
Since then, Ducky has refuted claims of him being involved and have released an official statement.
Just heard about the assault on Froggy at Sham's meet & greet today. This type of disgusting behavior 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.

In response to the ongoing situation, vloggers Mooroo and Zaid Ali T have also given their official statements.
Im extremely disappointed by the act of assault on Froggy. No one should be dehumanized to the extent where violence against them is acceptable. Behaviour like this is not promoted under any circumstance. You can voice your disagreement w/ words but please dont resort to violence

@duckybhai's family got threaten this is the only reason why he made the video on them and he didn't know that there are some mental fans who will physically attack women… bcz ducky doesn't have any dushmani with Froggy, his issue is with Sham#DuckyBhai #Froggy #ShamIdrees

You're allowed to have different opinions and views. You've rights to disagree with anyone but you certainly do not have rights to disrespect, assault or hurt anyone's self-respect/esteem.#shamidrees #donthurtanyone #DuckyBhai #respect @Shamidrees

Whatever YouTube feud they’ve or have had in the past, just doesn’t give anyone the ticket to go & abuse someone (esp a woman )&cause them physical harm this is simply inhuman & awful ! We should learn to keep difference in opinions in a literate manner. #Froggy #DuckyBhai
