After Apex Legends streamer LuluLuvely quit mid-stream due to issues with the community’s toxicity, fans have rallied behind the Twitch star.
While Apex Legends has been praised for its inclusivity, no online game or community, especially around a personality, is safe from the rantings and ravings of toxic individuals.
Twitch streamers such as LuluLuvely often face the worst of the abuse from jealous viewers or trolls. Quitting mid-stream due to being overwhelmed by negativity, the streamer mentioned that she was being “pushed over the edge.”
LuluLuvely ends stream abruptly
Clearly distressed, Lulu’s June 9 stream ended abruptly. While the original VOD has been deleted, a 30 second clip has resurfaced.
“I haven’t been in a dark place for a long time, but this community pushes me over the edge,” confesses the streamer. “It makes me think about killing myself all the f**king time now.”
The clip cuts off, but Lulu goes on to vent that the pressure put on her to inspire is outweighed by the backlash she gets for her efforts. From what we are aware, the stream ended very quickly after this.
Fans rally behind LuLu
Lulu has not tweeted or streamed since, leading to an outpouring of positive support from both her community, and the wider Apex playerbase.
One fan reminds the streamer that “Lulu, you’re an inspiration to so many women, and you have an insane amount of support right behind you.”
How fucking low you must be to bully a streamer off for being a fucking WOMAN. To the low life’s that bullied @LuluLuvely off her stream, fuck you. Lulu, you’re an inspiration to so many women, and you have an insane amount of support right behind you. 🤍
People, do better.

Additionally, Brazilian artists at Bonnie & Clyde studio banded together to create a beautiful illustration of the streamer, writing that they “hope she’s okay.”
LuluLuvely is by far the most popular female Twitch streamer for Apex Legends, and has hosted a number of community events, such as Lulu’s Throwdown.
