Mixer star Tyler “Ninja” Blevins gave a pointed message to broadcasters who guilt-trip their fans for subscriptions and donations — but Twitch streamer Alinity weighed in on the subject with a different view.

Streaming sites like Twitch often give fans the ability to support their favorite content creators in a variety of ways, from subscribing to their channels to gifting subs and even directly donating cash.

However, some streamers have lashed out at their viewers for not supporting them monetarily, as seen in the case of ‘BadBunny,’ who went viral in December after hitting out at her fans for not subscribing.

In response, Ninja released a statement in March directed at these streamers, who he called “horribly toxic” and reminded them that their viewers were to thank for their Affiliate status and ability to receive subscriptions, in the first place.

However, Alinity Divine had a different view on the matter, which she explained in a detailed response to Ninja’s video a day later.

While she agreed with his sentiments on the subject, she also noted that some of these broadcasters may rely on their viewers’ donations to pay their bills, and understood why they might prioritize monetary support from fans.

“I agree 100% with you, appreciate your viewers,” she replied. “But a full-time streamer with 200 subs may be stressed about not being able to pay his bills.”

“So, it is easy for big streamers that don’t have to deal with that stress,” she continued. “You make enough in ad revenue and deals to make up for it.”

However, plenty of commenters disagreed with her opinion, with one user arguing that broadcasters shouldn’t go full-time unless they can easily pay their bills by streaming.

“The problem with streaming is that your income can fluctuate a lot from month to month,” Alinity responded. “…I think people should chase their dreams, but I also agree that you should have a safety net for slow months.”

It’s clear that Alinity is passionate about the subject, even though Ninja was obviously not speaking about her in his Twitter post.

Instead, he probably had the aforementioned BadBunny in mind, as well as CoD content creator “wingsofredemption,” who recently came under fire for raising his fee from $10 to $25 per hour just to continue streaming the game.

Wingsofredemption was mocked for what he said, as WoW broadcaster “McconnellRet” joked about the matter to his fanbase a month later.

Both sides make compelling arguments, but what’s your stance on the topic? Who do you agree with — Ninja or Alinity?

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
