During a July 6 stream with Dr. K, Twitch star Natalia ‘Alinity’ Mogollon claimed that her copyright strike against YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg happened by mistake. The incident sparked drama between the two back in 2018. 

Drama between the two personalities broke out in 2018 when Alinity appeared to issue a copyright strike against PewDiePie’s YouTube channel. At the time, she was offended by the Swede’s joke about “Twitch thots” and called him out in front of her viewers.

However during her latest broadcast, the 32-year old sat down for a live talk with popular streamer Dr. K. During the emotional conversation in which she opened up about internet hate, she also revealed how the claim against Pewds’ video was an “accident.”

Alinity claims she didn’t copyright strike PewDiePie

During her sit down with the Twitch personality, Alinity revealed how much internet hate for her past mistakes has impacted her. The talk came after her breakdown during a stream on July 2 for similar reasons.

During the discussion, the star opened up about her drama between PewDiePie in 2018. “There were compilations of myself… I got up and yelled at my roommate “Oh, can we copystrike PewDiePie?!”… It was just like for show.”

The streamer then claimed that “it was just, like, a joke” and that she wasn’t being serious. “I was trying to play it up for the stream. But I didn’t actually copystrike his video. I didn’t do it. It was the company that was working for me, [they] accidentally and coincidentally put a strike on the video.”

The Twitch star also explained that the company she used to work with issued a statement 0ver the incident, and stated that it was an employee who made the strike and not her. “But nobody paid attention to that! Everybody is like “she’s evil, she’s abusing the law!” she exclaimed.

Alinity then revealed that she got a ton of backlash for the situation, and that viewers started to dig through her old content to find any type of mistake she might have made.

Despite past controversy, Alinity has seen a wave of support from the streaming community after she opened up about her mental health. On July 4, she promised to “be better” in the future in a post on social media.

At the time of writing, PewDiePie has yet to respond to her explanation. However, it is likely the Swede will give his thoughts in a future reaction video.

Pokimane slams Fedmyster’s second OfflineTV document: “Who asked?”

⁠Former Offline TV member Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan has released yet another lengthy Google Doc regarding the accusations of misconduct against him from OTV streamers, claiming he wants to “move on” from the drama.

Fedmyster was released from OTV in June 2020, after streamers LilyPichu, Yvonne and Pokimane levied accusations of harassment and inappropriate conduct against him.

Following these accusations, it seemed that all was resolved, with Fed having been removed from the group as a result; but a Google Doc seemingly leaked from the disgraced streamer in late November, which set off a chain reaction of outrage across the internet.

In the leaked November document, Fed appeared to accuse Pokimane of not being honest about their relationship to her viewers, and included screenshots of private text messages between them.

While Pokimane went on to respond to this document, saying he’d admitted his guilt, Fedmyster released yet another lengthy statement on December 1, claiming that he had actually never intended to release the original Doc. Instead, he explained that it had actually been a “form of therapy for myself, to address my concerns about the way Poki portrayed me in her stream.”

Fedmyster also purported that a formerly-trusted member of his community had leaked the document, leading to a “violent breach of my trust and against my wishes as I’ve been working hard to grow, heal, and move on from everything.”

The leaked document of Fedmyster’s in November had been titled “My Truth,” and mostly centered around his relationship with Pokimane.

The former streamer likewise addressed allegations that he had attempted to get Yvonne fired from the group due to her accusations against him. Denying that he had ever wanted her kicked from the crew, he claims that his concerns were due to her “lack of excitement and willingness to help with OfflineTV projects when it’s the only reason she’s in the house.”

He included several other explanations regarding his text messages with Pokimane, as well as his portrayal of Jodi toward Poki, who he apologized for, “painting her to Imane in such a poor light.”

Fedmyster ended his document by claiming that he wants “to move on and start a new chapter in my life,” hoping to put the issue to rest once and for all.

Pokimane has since responded to the document with a scathing tweet, writing, “Who asked lol.”

Fedmyster’s long document has been met with similar reactions from readers online, marking yet another episode of an ongoing incident between some of Twitch’s top content creators.
