Alinity responds to “ridiculous” calls for Twitch ban after dog mishap

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.


2HYPE YouTube group joins 100 Thieves

100 Thieves have signed YouTube mega-group 2HYPE to the company’s impressive sheet of content creators. The six members of the collective will now represent the LA-based organization.

2HYPE is made up of YouTubers CashNasty, Jesser, ZackTTG, Kristopher London, Jiedel, and Mopi, all of who bring in millions of views per channel every month. The six YouTubers formed the group 2HYPE in May 2019, and amassed over 1 million subscribers on that channel within 50 videos.

They’re known primarily for their gym retreats and content revolving around a basketball court, each brimming with unique personalities that adds tremendous variety to their videos.

Now the talent will be creating their regular schedule of content as reps of the 100T brand, which should play out fairly similar to the org’s last groups signing with The Mob.

“We’re so thrilled today to welcome 2HYPE to 100 Thieves,” 100T announced. “This group of 6 creators sits at the forefront of sports, gaming, & culture. Just in the past few years, they’ve amassed over 18M YouTube subs across their channels. We look forward to so many collabs to come!”

2HYPE will let the org expand into yet another vertical of video creation, as the org intends for the signing to let them “branch out further in the sports realm and create an inflection point for 2HYPE on content production and brand partnerships.”

As seasoned NBA 2K players, every individual member of the group has a close read on the pulse of online sports entertainment and will now merge their own millions of subscribers to the 100T community.

In the two-part announcement video, every member was officially iced with the 100 Thieves chain to commemorate the new signing.

Just like The Mob in 2019, 2HYPE is expected to add another style of content to the org’s multifaceted hold on the streaming/video creation space.

This marks a second major expansion for the company in the fourth quarter of 2020, with the org announcing their return to Call of Duty esports with the LA Thieves franchise.

100 Thieves are making big moves, and the new collaboration with 2HYPE is only going to bolster the army of creators signed by the org.
