Popular Twitch streamer Alinity Divine has explained what she actually said, after viewers claimed she used a racial slur towards a teammate on stream.

Alinity has received massive backlash in the past from Twitch users and the gaming community for some of her actions on Twitch such as the alleged animal abuse clips that went viral while she was streaming with her cat.

The popular streamer found herself having to defend her actions yet again, after viewers claimed that she used a racial slur while playing Apex Legends.

ALINITY twitchAlinity has received massive backlash from viewers for her actions while streaming on Twitch.

During her August 10 livestream, Alinity was communicating with her teammate when she said something which did sound similar to the accused slur, although it wasn’t certain.

Alinity says she was talking about Twitch prime subscriptions, when she stumbled on her words while asking about his next Twitch prime subscription, “but Nick, your next prime is in the channel.”

After raising questions, the streamer defended herself on Twitter, explaining to her fans that she often mispronounces words due to English not being her first language.

She then apologized to anyone who felt offended and expressed that the racial slur that viewers thought they heard was actually just her stumbling on her words when speaking to her teammate.

“I’m sorry to anyone offended by things they think I said. I didn’t call my teammate a slur, I stumbled on my words telling him your next prime is in the channel.”

It is unlikely that Alinity will receive a ban for her error, although many viewers in the gaming community have put pressure on Twitch in the past for their lack of punishment against the streamer.

Many other streamers including Pokimane have given their take on the situation explaining why they feel Alinity often finds her way out of trouble in cases where other streamers have punished for something similar.

Another streamer on Twitch known as TF Blade had dealt with similar when he was banned after staff mistakenly believed he had used a racial slur while streaming, although his suspension was lifted early after community backlash.

Despite some of her previous controversial actions on the platform, many of the viewers have accepted the streamers apology and explanation, even coming to Alinity’s defense against some of the harsh comments she received online.


Hasan calls out ‘doppelganger’ Spanish Twitch streamer after hilarious rant

Hasan jokingly called out a Spanish Twitch streamer named IlloJuan who made a hilarious rant after his fans told him they looked similar.

Hasan Piker, better known as HasanAbi, has met his match. Not in terms of political commentary, but rather, his appearance. It happened after the fanbase of a Spanish streamer named IlloJuan described the two of them as doppelgangers.

IlloJuan reacted hilariously to the comparison live on stream. Somebody captured a video of it, and it went viral. Eventually, it found its way to Hasan, who watched it live on his stream.

Hasan streams games, but his priority is to keep viewers updated on major political events.

“This guy? This guy me?” said IlloJuan. He pointed to the picture of Hasan. Then, he pointed to himself and flexed his biceps. “I am stronger.” But he didn’t look too convinced about his claim, and neither did Hasan.

“Hey! Hey! Listen,” said Hasan, while jokingly cracking his knuckles. “It’s on-site, mother f**ker.” He sat back and listened to the rest of IlloJuan’s rant.

“No, I mean, with glasses, maybe,” said IlloJuan. “But no, this guy is very strong. He kills me with one punch. Dangerous guy, this guy. What does this guy stream? He seems like he streams Team Fight Tactics.”

“What?” said Hasan, in disbelief. It seems like he thought that was the last game he’d be associated with. His viewers were in stitches, and so was he. They spammed the chat with laughter.

Fortunately, somebody told IlloJuan what he actually streams.  “Politics? He streams politics?” he said. “Ah, he speaks about politics, oh okay. Well, yes, with glasses, yes, he’s a smart guy.”

Hassan burst out laughing and stopped the video. He couldn’t get over the fact IlloJuan thought he streamed Team Fight Tactics. “Mother f**ker said Team Fight Tactics, bro. What?” he said.

“I think English [speakers] and Spanish speakers are [coming together on Twitch]. A lot of Spanish streamers are talking about English speaking streamers, too. What’s going on? I mean, listen, I’ve got a big Latina community in my audience too, so.”

Hilarious rants and reactions aside, it seems like Hasan could be on to something here. The two communities have overlapped quite a bit in recent weeks. For example, TheGrefg broke his own viewership record and became a household name among English speakers.

Hasan and his reaction to IlloJuan is another example. Who knows, maybe the two of them will collaborate in a doppelganger steam at some point. Perhaps it’s something their viewers would love to see.
