Streaming star Alinity Divine opened up about the hate she receives online due to her past controversies, and addressed rumors of being responsible for Dr Disrespect’s Twitch ban during a broadcast with psychiatrist Dr K.

Alinity Divine is a popular personality on Twitch, boasting over 1.2 million followers on the platform — as well as her fair share of haters, having received ample criticism due to controversial instances throughout her career as a top broadcaster.

However, the hate against the star was exacerbated following the surprising Twitch ban against streamer Dr Disrespect in late June, with trolls accusing her of being responsible for the incident after the release of a purportedly faked Reddit post.

Twitch star Alinity Divine opened up about the constant harassment she receives online, as well as the rumors circulating that allege she was responsible for the surprise ban of Dr Disrespect.

While the exact reason for the Doc’s suspension is unknown at the time of writing, Alinity hit back against these accusations during a July 6 stream with Twitch psychiatrist Alok ‘Dr. K’ Kanojia, where she opened up about the constant hate she receives online.

“You have to understand, I became the punching bag of the internet,” she explained. “Dr Disrespect got banned, okay — I’ve never met the guy, never talked to him, ever had an interaction with the guy. He got banned, and I was trending on Twitter with his ban. People telling me that it was my fault he got banned.”

“People were harassing me, like, ‘Why did you get him banned?’” she continued. “‘Did you cheat with him?’ And I’m like, dude, what the f**k? So I became obsessed with finding out why he got banned, because I wanted to prove to these people that it had nothing to do with me.”

That’s not all; Alinity also admitted that she had developed harmful thoughts due to the hate she’s received over the years, claiming she wished she could ‘move on’ from the internet vitriol and even expressing a wish to go to prison over dealing with the constant harassment.

“I could kill myself,” she revealed during the stream. “I’ve thought about it so many days, so many times. I already had a plan on how I was going to do it.”

Luckily, Alinity also admitted that she has a few close friends who keep her from being alone, and later on admitted to the ridiculousness of internet hate culture and the wild rumors surrounding her.

This broadcast follows the streamer’s breakdown during a live stream on July 3, after which Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins apologized for a comment he’d made regarding Alinity throwing a cat over her head a year ago.

Alinity’s emotional conversation with Dr K also follows the death of streamer Byron ‘Reckful’ Bernstein, who tragically took his own life on July 2, leading to a greater discussion among the broadcasting community at large regarding online conduct and internet culture.


Jaden Hossler’s new song with Iann Dior fuels Mads Lewis breakup rumors

TikToker Jaden Hossler has fuelled rumors of a break up with fellow creator Mads Lewis after he released his latest single this week.

Jaden is popular on TikTok with more than 8 million followers, and a former member of TikTok’s Sway House, but he left the collective in May, alongside Josh Richards, to dedicate more time to his music. Madison ‘Mads’ Lewis also has a big following, with 10.9 million followers and 5.6 million Instagram followers.

The pair first started dating in the second half of 2019 but broke up in February after rumors that Jaden had cheated. However, they have since reunited and began dating again in the summer. Now it looks as though the relationship could be over once again.

The song “Tonight” with Iann Dior, which Jaden released on October 21, features lyrics that fans speculate are about Mads. The chorus features the lyrics “We’re holding on to nothing, And we’re holding on too tight,” while the end of the song has an outro with someone on the phone saying “Jaden if you don’t pick up the phone right now, that’s not funny.”

One of the top comments on YouTube says “Is this about him and Mads holding on to nothing or what?”, while others are convinced that the outro sounds exactly like Mads.

There’s more evidence yet

Not only has Mads unfollowed Jaden on Instagram, but an unreleased song by Jaden that leaked in an Instagram Live appears to point to a rocky ending between the two.

In a clip of the Live from Jaden’s friend Cooper Noriega, the track seems to reference the dog “Juice” that Mads and Jaden adopted together and features the lyrics “I’m through, I’ve had enough of you, I’m giving up.”

Meanwhile, Mads has also been writing music and posted a clip of a song she had been working on to her story. The song’s lyrics are also emotional and point to an unfaithful boyfriend with the lyrics “I wanted to believe that you were still sleeping alone.”

Both have since posted cryptic tweets that may be addressing the situation. Jaden wrote “I’m sorry for being a baby, I’m just going through it right now,” pleaded with fans to “stop asking for me to unravel my life” and explained he would be taking a break from social media.

Mads tweeted, “I appreciate the love and support but I do not like seeing hate on people. Please do not post hateful things to anyone.”

There have been several allegations of Jaden cheating. Rumors surfaced in September when he was accused of cheating on his ex-girlfriend with Mads. While In July, Chase Hudson called out Hossler for not only “actively trying to hook up with Dixie [D’Amelio]”, but also for cheating on Mads an “endless amount of times […] for the past few months.”
