Alinity Divine is one of Twitch’s most popular and most controversial streamers, so it should be no surprise that she has become absolutely proficient at shutting down haters.

Over 130,000 Twitter followers, 332,000 Instagram followers, and one million-plus Twitch followers—Alinity is big on the internet and that means she’s got fans and haters galore. And on June 27, she shut down a troll publicly flaming her about the “animal abuse” scandal – despite privately praising her.

A Twitter user took a shot at Alinity, insinuating that “more animal abuse” would comprise her plans in response to a “any guesses on what’s gonna happen tomorrow” Tweet.

But the content creator, who was cleared of any animal abuse by the Saskatoon SPCA, was quick to shut them down with a screenshot of an earlier DM.

In the private message, the user reached out to commend Alinity on her streams and “good work.” She thanked them, they said “you’re welcome,” and that seemed to be the end of it – but it seemingly wasn’t.

Many replied to the behavior by saying that the user’s true “simp” or ‘clout-chasing’ nature had been exposed. The person then clarified that they initially intended to reply with an “animal abuse” joke in the DM “but chickened out when she actually responded.”

Conversely, they explained to someone else that the original planned message insult was scrapped because they “decided to let it rest because it’s old.”

They changed course again in yet another reply, professing to have ended the DM kindly because they “didn’t want to get blocked.”

Despite her past controversies, Alinity is one of the top female streamers on Twitch, with over 1.1 million followers at the time of writing.

YouTube star David Dobrik is one of the internet’s most famous content creators — but living in the limelight isn’t always a cake walk, as he discovered after one of his viewers began stalking his home.

Boasting well over 18 million subscribers on YouTube, it comes as little surprise that Dobrik receives the occasional unwanted visitor at his house, which has happened several times before.

However, this latest incident took a dark turn, as revealed during an episode of Dobrik and Jason Nash’s ‘VIEWS’ podcast in early October where the star revealed one viewer took things a little too far.

During the episode, Dobrik explained that the fan — a young woman in her “early twenties” — had sat outside of his home on the street curb for two days before banging on the door, yelling his name.

In an episode of his VIEWS podcast with Jason Nash, David Dobrik revealed a disturbing encounter with a woman who was stalking him.

After Dobrik went outside to investigate, he reported that the viewer suffered from appeared to be a “panic attack” and quickly shouted “Nevermind, you can’t help me,” before “storming” out of his driveway.

Understandably concerned, Dobrik and company followed the woman, to no avail — but a day later, a neighbor texted the YouTuber that someone had keyed his assistant, Natalie’s, Ford Bronco.

The vehicle (pictured below) was etched with symbols, according to Dobrik, which included his name written in odd lettering.

Upon investigating the car, David found that the woman was nearby, claiming she wanted to “apologize” — but quickly became what he described as “scary,” prompting him to call law enforcement for help in case things got sticky.

Luckily, the star was adamant that he didn’t want to “get her in trouble” but instead wanted her to “get help,” to which she agreed.

While waiting on the police to arrive, Dobrik asked the woman why she’d stalked him, to which she replied: “He told me to just go for it.”

As for who “he” was? Dobrik claimed she said it was “the guy inside my head,” who told her that “if I came here, everything would be answered.”

Thankfully, the police were “super f**king nice” when they arrived and took the woman to a hospital, prompting a hilarious chat with an officer who advised Dobrik to change his name on social media — something he replied he was a “little late” for.

While this is far from the first time an internet celebrity has been outright stalked, it’s good to know that this situation ended peacefully, with Dobrik understanding that his stalker didn’t have bad intentions, but merely needed help.
