Twitch streamer Alinity has explained why she shouldn’t be banned from Twitch following the on-stream mishap with her dog Luna and hit out at the “ridiculous” reaction.

Back on November 30, the Canadian broadcaster was at the mercy of the internet after a clip went viral from her stream that showed her dog, Luna, poking around her groin as she tried to pull off a yoga pose. 

Plenty of folks chimed in on the strange clip, including Corinna Kopf, who used it as a way to roast Alinity after she had been banned for wearing ‘undergarments’ on Twitch in the following days. PETA have even made demands to Twitch that they ban Alinity from the platform.

Alinity is no stranger to having her pets as a part of the stream.

While Alinity hadn’t initially spoken out, she finally addressed it on December 1 – reviewing the clip as she kicked off her daily stream. 

“People are like really mad about this. Like, people think I should be banned for that,” Alinity told her viewers after re-watching the now-viral clip. “I think it’s so ridiculous, like seriously guys, y’all have gone way too far.” 

The streamer added that it wasn’t the first instance of her trying to pull off the yoga pose, claiming that there is a “million clips out there” of her doing the same thing, but this time her dog happened to get involved.

She explained that she had been wanting to show off her progress with yoga, and as the dog got involved, she tried to nudge her away – but that didn’t happen as quickly as she may have liked. 

Alinity wasn’t finished there though, noting that she didn’t think she could be “surprised” by the internet’s outcry anymore, but that anything seems possible now.

Yet, the streamer circled back around to the situation at hand. “It’s just kind of crazy, and my dog does this to everyone – especially to ladies when they’re on their period,” she explained further. “That’s just how dogs, like, get to know each other. She does it to everyone.”

After giving examples, Alinity concluded her recap of what had happened. “Anyway, so that’s been going on, that was my night last night while I was very, very stoned, I’m trying to deal with the internet and I’m just like what the f*cks wrong with people, like, why can’t we just all chill and hug and love.”

Despite her reasoning and explanation, the streamer is still likely to face some shots from the internet as they pile on with their jokes and memes.

Regardless of that, though, its unlikely to stop her from streaming on Twitch or even practicing yoga again – she’ll just have to be a bit more aware of any potential slip-ups that could arise.

After taking down Nate Robinson with relative ease, the YouTube star turned hopeful boxer will take to the ring against Ben Askren on April 17.

However, in the lead up to the fight, the two have already thrown punches over text.

Ben Askren leaked DMs between the two on February 24, claiming “this next generation has some really bad role models.”

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”

While Askren ignored most of Paul’s questions, he had the final jab ahead of the bout.

“You gave up here like you’re going to give up in our fight. You don’t have the heart. Please don’t back out of our fight.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is locked in for April 17, and is set to be one of the biggest PPV fights in history.
