Brother Nature, a popular internet celebrity, came to Miami to clean beaches and have fun. A strip club visit later, he was beaten up outside a sandwich shop.
Kelvin Peña, or Brother Nature on social media, told his 2.4 million Twitter followers that he was in Miami doing a clean up on Thursday. Two days later, people started tweeting about his night on the town.
Moe, or Money_Moe305 on Twitter, tweeted that he and a group of people were with Peña at Booby Trap, which is a strip club. He’s since deleted those tweets.
Later that night, videos of Peña getting beaten up in front of La Sandwicherie at the strip mall across the street from Brickell City Centre started popping up on Twitter.
Sometime later, one of the believed suspects in the fight, Phat Dabb, posted on Twitter, “I just beat the dog s— outta brother nature in la Sandwicherie.” He has also deleted his tweet.
According to Miami Police spokeswoman Kiara Delva, officers were called out to the shop at 34 Southwest 8th Street at about 5:45 a.m. Saturday “regarding a call of a big fight.”
But when police arrived at La Sandwicherie, the subjects — including Brother Nature — were gone, Delva said. Police declined to release more information.
On Saturday, Peña tweeted about the fight.
“I know there’s a video out of me getting jumped, everyone in the pizza shop literally just watched, with their phones out, and did nothing. Oh well.”
Peña became viral on Twitter after he talked to and interacted with a small herd of deer that visited his back yard. He famously called one of the deer Canela. He has continued to post viral videos of him befriending wild animals.
Many have called him a real-life Disney princess.
