Someone standing in line for Fortnite literally shat in a bag and left it there. The source is in German, and I'm on mobile so I'll translate it later.

Short version: people stepped in it, the hall started to stink so badly that a young kid had to vomit...

What the fuck.

Searched but found nothing

Edit:
Quick and dirty bullet point translation:

- Suspect probably didn't want to leave the waiting line
- Probably to snag the exclusive spray that was given out there
- used a paper bag to shit in and left it on the ground
-the line was so packed that people started stepping on it and spreading it throughout Hall 8
-People complained to the organisers of the Fortnite stand from the get go
-A young boy had to vomit
-service personell was so disgusted they refused to clean it up
-in the end it seems a leading employee (not sure if Epic or from Kölln Messe) started to clean up.
- presumably was standing in the line to get a DLC-code / in-game item which you can sell for 150€ on ebay (thanks to Bundy for reminding me of that point)


EDIT: STORY IS FAKE:



Talk about a smear article.

This made me laugh more than it probably should have.

On a serious note, grow up and use the fucking bathroom. I mean, you can play Fortnite on the toilet at home these days!!

I think that's actually worse than that Pokémon player who starting flinging their feces in the hallway of the hotel they were staying at a couple of years ago

He's probably shit at Fortnite too and just wanted to cement that.

On a more serious note... I can't imagine anyone ever thinking that this is even remotely okay. Which brings me to my next thought: Dude ain't right in the head.

Gamescom halle stinken in the URL has me rolling. I don't even need to know German.

That's why I'll never attend these big gaming conventions. I'd much rather follow the news from the comfort of my own house.

Scheiße

the article also mentions that the cleaning crew did not want to clean up the "shit" he left behind.. and that a (leading) worker had to "step in" and pick up what the kid had left behind..

and .. they probably were there because you could win a gamescom exclusive spray, that sells on ebay for around 150€..

According to the article, you can get an exclusive in-game item if you play there

For those wondering why
