Popular Twitch streamer Natalia ‘Alinity’ Mogollon responded to backlash on social media after a video of hers from 2018 went viral on May 20. The personality argues that her opinion has changed since then.

Alinity is one of the top streamers on Twitch, however she’s been no stranger to controversy, being banned in April for a wardrobe malfunction.

The 32-year-old has now found herself facing new criticism after a video of her sharing views on men cheating from two years ago re-surfaced on Twitter and went viral.

The viral clip came from Alinity’s broadcast back in 2018.

The whole thing kicked off when Twitter user ‘JordanPooleWrld’ posted a video of the Twitch streamer on May 20. In the clip, the personality gives her take on the difference between men and women cheating in a relationship.

“For a guy that is in a relationship to be interested in other girls, that’s just cheating. But if a girl who’s in a relationship becomes interested in another guy, it often means that she’s not getting what she needs to get from the relationship,” she stated.

The video was accompanied with a caption that read “This actually makes no f**king sense.” The user’s post immediately went viral, with over 1.8 million views and 60k likes at the time of writing.

After the post sparked a wave of backlash, Alinity responded to the tweet and said it was from years ago. “I said a while back. I think I was projecting my own insecurities about being cheated on. It was a totally stupid thing to say. This is from 2018, I was way off.”

The Twitch streamer responded to backlash with multiple tweets.

While the online personality was quick to explain the video, she still received backlash from some who disagreed with her statements from 2018. Responding again, she said, “I don’t judge anyone for hating me based on the s**t I’ve done.”

If nothing else, this is an example of how a clip from a streamer’s past can show up again years later – even if their views have changed. Controversies aside, the Twitch star continues to pull in numbers on the platform. At the time of writing, she has over 1.1 million followers to her channel.

Charli D’Amelio defends Addison Rae, tells TikTok haters to “shut up”

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio has had enough of internet critics, telling trolls to buzz off in a pointed Instagram Live broadcast where she defended names like Addison Rae against body-shaming users.

It’s no secret that the internet can be a brutal place. The advent of social media has allowed people from all over the world to connect with one another, for better or for worse — and not everyone has a positive outlook on life.

From the average Instagram user to social media stars like Addison Rae, it seems that no one is above criticism from internet trolls, causing some users to completely lock down their accounts while others have learned to handle the negativity with a swift block.

Not everyone can drown out the negativity, though, especially if there’s a lot of it, and it seems that Charli D’Amelio has taken notice of quite a few negative comments about her fellow TikTokers.

“Quite honestly, I know I look good,” Charli said while doing her makeup in an October Instagram Live. “Addison should know she looks good. Maddie should know she looks good. Cynthia should know she looks good. Like, shut up!”

“Keep it to yourself!” she continued.

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all. People say like, such rude things to like, Sissy Sheridan. Sissy is so beautiful. Literally one of the most beautiful girls I know. You’re mad that she doesn’t cuss? How is that affecting you?”

“Even like, Bella Poarch,” the TikTok star added. “She uses the face zoom filter, and she looks good doing it. You guys gave her the likes. Don’t go back on what you said, because she has a lot of followers.”

It’s no secret that the celebs she mentioned have been getting quite a lot of backlash lately; from Bella Poarch being accused of acting childlike on purpose to trolls body-shaming Addison Rae’s curves, it looks like Charli has simply had enough of the negativity.

She’s not wrong for pointing it out, either. Reports state that the current global health crisis has seen a dramatic rise in cyberbullying, and a quick look at comments on TikTok show that this isn’t a mistruth.

In these times, it’s always good to remember Bill and Ted’s classic saying: “Be excellent to each other.”
