The video shows homeless fights on the streets of San Francisco

A viral video making its rounds on social media offers a grim new snapshot of San Francisco’s deepening homelessness crisis, as two men argue in appalling conditions on a city sidewalk.

The shocking scene was filmed and posted to Twitter by J. Terrell Allen, who said he encountered the ferocious fight while taking an evening stroll in San Francisco’s SoMa neighborhood.

Video, Posted on Twitter on Thursday, shows two men – one of whom is shirtless – wrestling on the ground strewn with rubble while the majority of the others, apparently homeless, look on with little interest.

However, another person joins the riot and hits the shirtless man with a broom.

“SOMA is not safe. Just happened. This is gross,” Allen wrote, who could not be immediately reached for comment late Friday.

“I love taking long walks and walking past them in my hood every day,” Allen added in a separate article tweet. “I love the smell of crack and poop. Beautiful San Francisco.”

Amid the chaos, a man puts a pair of shoes in a plastic garbage bag before walking away, according to the video, which has racked up 2.4 million views as of late Friday.

Suddenly, a man on an electric scooter crashes into the frame and skids to a stop directly in front of the two fighting men. The fighters then separated, the fight apparently over.

In San Francisco, a city of over 800,000 according to the 2020 census, as many as 20,000 homeless people could be living on the streets by the end of the year, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.
