Director of creator development at Twitch, Marcus Graham aka djWHEAT tweeted his opinion in regards to the whole Alinity situation.
A little recap on what went on. Alinity had tossed her cat behind her shoulder live on stream which created a massive outrage with a lot of people demanding she gets banned for abusing her pet… More on the whole story here.
djWHEAT had tweeted stating that he was upset in regards to Alinity’s actions on stream especially that he owns a cat, he continued to add that he believes that she should be banned from Twitch, but has no authority on the moderation team and is simply giving his opinion.
He listed that if he was able to take action:
– He would ban her for at least 30 days
– He would ask to see an awareness stream and potential charity drive for pet abuse or pet charities
– He would put forth 90-day probation post-ban with a no-tolerance period (you mess up = ban) & check INS
As a cat owner, I'm very upset over the recent news. I am also someone who does not have moderation powers or enforcement. Just like I can't fix your subscriptions.— djWHEAT (@djWHEAT) July 21, 2019
I want to see a ban. I do not want to be harassed because you think that's the right thing to do.
Again he emphasized that this is all hypothetical and merely his opinion. The community has been pressing on Twitch to take actions and obviously, djWHEAT has also been caught in the fire that probably led him to Tweet that he is not on Alinity’s side and is in the agreement with the community.
Things aren’t looking good for Alinity, the community seems to have had enough of her breaking Twitch TOS and getting away with it, and are determined to get her off the platform.
We don’t think Twitch will permanently remove Alinity, but we do expect them to release a statement especially that both Peta and the SPCA got involved.
Alinity claimed that people are going to the extent of knocking on her neighbor’s door asking where she is, turning the online harassment she was receiving to real-life harassment.
Please stop coming to my house and asking my neighbours where I am. Its actually really scary— Alinity (@AlinityTwitch) July 22, 2019
People were quick to comment on her tweet saying she’s lying, with some comments being:
