End UK Private Jets posted a video on Twitter immediately after Kai’s stunt explaining why he was going to set Kai’s arm on fire.

He said: ‘In a few hours I am going to go to the Laver Cup tennis tournament and set my arm on fire on the court.

“People are going to say things like ‘this is horrible,’ people in the stadium are going to be upset, and anyone who finds out is going to be really traumatized, especially if they’ve had experiences with things like self-harm.”

“Because right now we are on a path where hundreds of millions of people are going through unimaginable suffering which is social collapse, torture, famine, drought and war and things like that.”
