Twitch star Alinity Divine was part of yet another viral internet moment when her pet cat bit her arm during a live stream — but it seems that she has finally explained the painful scenario with a compilation video of similar moments.

Alinity was the talk of the social media world during the summer of 2019 after she tossed her cat Milo over her head during a game of Apex Legends.

After previous footage was discovered of the streamer also feeding her cat vodka, the Saskatoon SPCA stepped in, but ultimately ruled that she had “no malicious intent” and had “expressed remorse” regarding the viral incident.

Twitch star Alinity Divine became the topic of internet drama in summer 2019 after tossing her cat Milo, pictured here, over her head during a game of Apex Legends.

However, further drama arose months later, after her cat Maya seemed to enact its “revenge” on the star by biting her arm while she was singing for the camera, appearing to be annoyed by the loud noise.

While many critics speculated that the cat may have been reacting out of fear, Alinity has seemed to respond to the online outrage with a compilation video of other such interactions with her pet feline.

Her March 10 video, titled, “Maya HATES when I sing!! She a sweetheart tho,” features a number of moments where Maya seems to react to Alinity’s singing by biting her forearm or her leg, interspersed with clips of the broadcaster snuggling and kissing the animal.

“Is my singing that bad?” she wrote in the video’s description.

“C’mon Maya, none of the other cats seem to mind. Milo is cool about it, Nova doesn’t mind. It’s just my beautiful voice!”

Thus far, Alinity’s video has been met with mixed reviews from critics and fans alike — but it does seem that Maya’s biting is a regular occurrence, especially when its owner is belting out the tunes during Twitch Sings broadcasts.

Considering Maya’s seemingly indignant chase-down of her owner after her viral March 6 bite, where she followed Alinity as she retreated in her gaming chair, it comes as little surprise that the streamer “promised” her pet she’d stop singing — although it would appear that the two have a much better relationship when she’s not putting her vocal talent on display.

Stormzy has officially made his Watch Dogs Legion debut with the release of his ‘Rainfall’ music video, which was filmed entirely inside Ubisoft’s upcoming trilogy sequel and if we’re being honest, the whole thing is kind of awesome.

Every day another celebrity seems to find their way into the digital world. This year, Ninja and Aussie Twitch streamer Loserfruit were both added to Fortnite. Then, just last month, Dr Disrespect had a unique variant skin and themed ‘Arena’ map he designed released in Rogue Company.

Now it’s British grime rapper Stormzy’s turn, in Watch Dogs: Legion.

The rapper, 27, released a music video for his new single “Rainfall” on Thursday, Oct. 22, with a bit of a twist ⁠— the entire clip was filmed in Ubisoft’s upcoming sequel.

A digital Stormzy first appeared in a virtual studio, singing his new single. The scenery soon changed, however, and he was transported ⁠— all in-game ⁠— to the rooftops of London, where the new Watch Dogs sequel will mainly be taking place.

Here’s the new music video, featuring Tiana Major9, in all its glory.

This isn’t the only time Stormzy will be appearing in Watch Dogs Legion either. When the full Legion title drops on Oct. 29, players will get the chance to team-up with the grime rapper, or at least a virtual version of him, for an exclusive side-quest.

The mission, “Fall on My Enemies,” is a reference to Stomrzy’s lyrics in ‘Rainfall.’ 

When accepted, players will be tasked with “protecting the broadcast of the music video across the entire city.” Ubisoft has yet to confirm how long the mission will be, or whether it has any major bearing on the main Watch Dogs storyline.

Stormzy first revealed his collaboration back in September. He said, “You lot are about to have your minds blown. What [Ubisoft] have done in terms of recreating London is one of the most insane, epic, incredible things I’ve ever seen.”

Stormzy ‘filmed’ his entire Rainfall music video inside Watch Dogs: Legion.

The Watch Dogs devs said they were “thrilled” to have Stormzy onboard. “His music and what he speaks to as an artist is extremely relevant for our London setting, and for the larger themes of our game. He lit up the room… it was a career highlight for us to get to work with him.”

Ubisoft has confirmed the exclusive Stormzy Rainfall mission will be available from day one in Watch Dogs Legion, and will require no additional DLC patches to play.

The Watch Dogs trilogy sequel will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on Thursday, October 29. The title will also be ported to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 when the next-gen consoles are released in late 2020.
