Popular streamer Natalia ‘Alinity’ Mogollon has hit back at accusations she “feels proud” of her seemingly constant Twitch controversies, and taken a swipe at those suggesting she orchestrates them to stay in the public eye.

Alinity is undeniably one of Twitch’s most controversial stars. She rose to infamy in July last year when she was caught tossing her cat mid-stream. More recently, the 32-year-old came under fire again after a wardrobe malfunction on April 24.

The Twitch star hasn’t dodged repercussions either. After accidentally revealing too much during her April 24 broadcast, she was slapped with a 24-hour ban. She then extended that to three days in a self-mandated hiatus.

Alinity was banned on Twitch for 24-hours, and added two more days to her punishment herself, but for many it wasn't enough.

For many, it wasn’t enough. Plenty in the streaming community stepped forward to suggest she even deserved far harsher punishments. Now Alinity has hit back at those calling for her head, and reminded “her haters” she doesn’t relish controversies.

The 32-year-old returned to Twitch in a broadcast on April 28, and was soon inundated with a host of questions and demands. She rebutted the idea she had “planned” the on-stream slip, and slammed those suggesting otherwise.

Alinity slams suggestions she likes Twitch drama

“You know, I can’t go back and undo that sh*t? Yes, I can feel bad about it, and cry about it… I can apologize about it, and I have been apologizing about [it all] for a long time,” Alinity said soon after going live for the first time post-ban.

“The only choice I have is to laugh about it all, that’s how I cope. So yes, I’m going to laugh about it. If you guys want to think it’s because I’m putting it in your faces, or feel proud [of everything that’s happened], that’s not the case.

“It’s just how I cope with life… it really, really isn’t the case. I like to make fun of things. I like to see the good in everything. Even all the bad shit that happens. The kind of life I’ve gone through, it’s taught me to be like that, no matter what.”

Alinity admits Twitch favors big streamers

The controversial streamer also admitted she “knows there’s preferential treatment on Twitch” at the moment, but said it didn’t directly apply to her. Instead, the problem comes from smaller streamers being left in the cold.

“I do believe there’s certain things I should have been suspended for that I should have been suspended for, but I have no control over that what-so-ever, I can’t do anything about that,” she said later in her April 28 broadcast.

“People say ‘you’re getting a favorable treatment,’ but I think most streamers get that. I think the problem is… the small streamers receive unfavorable treatment. I don’t think Twitch does take the time for smaller streamers. It can be unfair, yes.”

Alinity also had one final barb to deliver to those that had called for her head after her latest accident ⁠— or rather, just one person. In a later comment, the Moroccan star admitted there’s only one person she really despises.

“I don’t get mad at people when they sh*t-talk me cause that’s just my opinion, that’s fine by me,” she said, before revealing her one exception to that rule: “The one person I really, really, really hate in the world is KEEMSTAR.”

Popular TikToker and former vine star Quenlin Blackwell has responded to rumors about her and Diplo after she revealed that she’s currently living with world-famous DJ. 

Quenlin Blackwell, 19, first rose to fame on Vine, earning more than half a billion loops and half a million followers. Now, she has now amassed more than 4 million followers on TikTok. Diplo, 41, is an American DJ known for tracks like “Be Right There” and is also a founding member of electronic supergroup Major Lazer.

TikTokers were left bemused by the surprising news and demanded to know more detail. Thousands of fans commented on Quenlin’s videos with Diplo, mostly reflecting a mix of amusement and shock, writing “This is the oddest duo but like I’m not mad,” and “I’m sorry I’m having a hard time processing this.”

Quenlin began a series documenting her living situation with one of the world’s biggest musicians, after the strong reaction from her followers and has so far filmed Diplo struggling to tie his shoelaces, bopping to music in the car, and behind the scenes at a live-stream concert for Major Lazer’s new album launch.

However, speculation about the pair has clearly gone too far for Quenlin who was forced to address rumors on her Twitter.

She wrote: “I’m an adult. I’m not being groomed. Platonic relationships exist. I’ve been living here for over a year. I’d rather break both of my legs and be forced to walk than pursue Diplo romantically and he’d rather choke.

“He’s barely in LA because he’s so busy. Diplo has given me the opportunity and the security to create. Diplo and his team are my mentors in LA and they are my safety net.

“Diplo and his team have saved me numerous times from the weirdos in LA. My parents trust him. I trust him. Y’all are making me feel icky. Diplo is my LA dad…nothing more.”

Diplo also responded to the situation on Twitter and wrote: “Ok so I rent one of my properties to Quen Blackwell and yes I use the studio that is in that building.

“Her social media is sarcastic and chaotic and I can see you can get a twisted idea but there is nothing but a friendship between us.”

Despite the backlash, Quenlin made jokes about the reaction from fans, even sarcastically tweeting: “Okay time to tell y’all the truth…I’m mixed and Diplo is my father.”

She has since continued the TikTok series and posted screenshots of texts between her and Diplo, and a video of them dancing together.
