Popular Twitch streamer Alinity Divine has responded to a leaked email that revealed she has previously sold used underwear to fans of her stream.

Alinity accidentally opened her Gmail account while streaming on Wednesday, November 21, revealing emails sent to her by various fans and companies.

The streamer immediately attempted to close the page, but before she was able to do so, viewers spotted a message from a male fan titled “I want to buy,” with an opening line that stated; “Hey Alinity, I hope you remember you sold me a leopard bra many years ago. I offered you very good money then and I wanted to ask if you like to,” with fans unable to read the rest of the email.

The clip was immediately posted to Reddit, forcing Alinity to come out and respond to the situation, choosing to do so on Discord in a chat log that was then posted to Twitter by Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem.

In it, Alinity confirmed that she made the decision to sell her underwear around five years ago, citing that she was a “broke college student” and really needed the money.

“It’s really fucking embarrassing,” stated the streamer. “It’s nothing something I would ever do again. He’s sent me a few emails honestly, I’ve just ignored it. I don’t even remember what the bra looked like.”

KEEMSTAR has gone on to question Twitch’s staff, stating that Alinity has broken “so many” of the site’s Terms of Service, yet has never been banned. Keem compared it to his situation, when he was banned from Twitch for getting into an argument with a female streamer on Twitter, believing this is a double standard.

Alinity has refrained from responding to KEEMSTAR’s tweets, choosing to remain silent on the subject on social media.

The streamer is currently involved in a legal situation with fellow streamer TrainwrecksTV, after she alleged that he had threatened to rape her in private messages sent to her, a claim he denies.

Travis Scott and PlayStation tease new PS5 “Cactus Jack” Nike Dunks

Travis Scott has revealed a new “TS5” teaser with PlayStation, which features a brief glimpse showcasing what appears to be a PS5 and Cactus Jack collaboration on a pair of Nike Dunk lows.

The 2020 king of collaborations, Scott, continues to up the ante. This time, he and Sony partnered to put together a teaser video, which is an obvious ode to the infamous Maxell “Blown Away Guy” advertisements from 1980.

In the social media commercial, Sony’s PlayStation headquarters are shown, followed by a few different employees who represent different aspects of the new console’s development (platform, design, and engineering). Afterward, Scott sits down, powers on a PS5, and is literally blown away.

Each employee is rocking some of Scott’s Cactus Jack merchandise, including one wearing a pair of his iconic Jordan 1 lows and one wearing a similar design, but on a pair of Nike Dunk lows. In the corner, a PS logo can be noticed by the sneaker’s heel.

It’s a short and sweet video, starting with some foreshadowing and teasing of the collaboration before finishing with a direct promotion for the PS5. An employee is seen wearing the PS5 Cactus Jack Dunks and then later, Scott himself appears to be wearing them as he kicks back and turns on the console.

In what might be obvious to those who have a keen eye for historic marketing content, the ending Scott portion of the clip is nearly a direct recreation of Maxell’s original ads from a couple decades ago. Those ads featured someone turning on one of the brand’s cassette tapes and experiencing the media quite physically. 

Similarly, Scott’s clothing, hair, and surrounding furniture are simultaneously hit with an unrelenting gust as soon as he powers on the PS5.

With the announcement from Sony that Scott has been enlisted as a “strategic creative partner,” it’s unclear exactly what the extent of this collaboration could mean. At the very least, fans can expect the two to work together on more projects.

One such project could be a pair of Cactus Jack sneakers, which would mean a three-way collab between Nike, Sony, and Scott’s own personal brand.

Scott’s sneaker collaborations typically sell out very quickly and then dominate the resale market, where resellers net huge profits just by lucking out and being among the first to invest in his reworked designs.

This sneaker follows the original Jordan 1 design, with an inverted swoosh logo on the outside, but in a contrasting colorway. Similarly, it seems to feature a PS5 logo at the heel (as other Nike and PlayStation collaborations have). It’s unknown whether these will be made available to the public or if they will be a “friends and family” symbolic release.
