Popular Twitch streamer Alinity Devine had a talk with Twitch psychiatrist Alok ‘Dr. K’ Kanojia live on stream sharing her experience with the constant hate she’s been receiving and addressed the rumors of being the reason Dr Disrespect was banned from the streaming platform.
Alinity has been the target of criticism for past mistakes she’s done on stream, but the criticism often turns into hate and online bullying.
Although the reason behind Dr Disrespect’s permanent ban is still unknown, a rumor circulated on Reddit that Alinity was responsible, which in return led to a massive hate wave towards the streamer.
On July 6 Alinity responded to the claims during a therapy session with Dr. K and shared her struggles with the online hate she’s been receiving.
“You have to understand, I became the punching bag of the internet,” she said. “Dr Disrespect got banned, okay, I’ve never met the guy, never talked to him, never had an interaction with the guy. He got banned, and I was trending on Twitter with his ban. People telling me that it was my fault he got banned.”
“People were harassing me, like, ‘Why did you get him banned?’” she continued. “‘Did you cheat with him?’ And I’m like, dude, what the f**k? So I became obsessed with finding out why he got banned, because I wanted to prove to these people that it had nothing to do with me.”
Alinity even admitted to having suicidal thoughts as a result of the constant online bullying she’s been receiving. She said that she currently feels like in hell and going to prison would probably be much better than what she’s going through.
She explained that her only option might be getting off of social media, but since she committed her life to streaming and hasn’t gone to college, she wouldn’t be able to provide for herself and her pets.
Fans have been asking Dr. K to talk with Alinity in the hopes of helping her with her mental health following the tragic death of streamer Byron ‘Reckful’ Bernstein, who took his life after struggling with his mental health and online bullying.
