‘Amouranth’ is one of the biggest names on Twitch, boasting over 1.3 million followers due to her humorous content and popular Just Dancing streams — but not all of her viewers are fans of her content.

Although she sports a massive following on the site, Amouranth is likewise a subject of division across the net, with certain clips from her streams sparking outrage from critics on Reddit and other platforms.

In fact, the streaming star has received so much criticism in the past that she now fears IRL broadcasting for fear of being swatted, as told during an interview with fellow streamer Devin Nash in early February.

Twitch star “Amouranth” explained that she avoids conducting IRL streams for fear of being swatted.

Swatting, defined as the act of calling police with the intention of sending armed forces to a specific location as a “prank,” has seen a drastic rise in recent years, with top streamers and even pro gamers being victimized by angry trolls.

Considering her own status as an internet personality, it comes as little surprise that Amouranth takes this possibility into consideration, revealing that it’s one of the reasons she avoids streaming IRL.

“My problem with IRL is that I have so many little insecure a**holes who like to call and swat places,” she claimed. “I get that almost every stream. If I show the name at all, or if it’s an obvious location like the zoo, people will swat and call me to try to get me kicked out, or like arrested or get in trouble, or whatever. I have that problem consistently.”

Rather than broadcast charitable streams from animal shelters, as seen from other top stars like Pokimane, Amouranth has opted to forego such projects in fear of risking the safety of both the animals and shelter workers, alike.

“I would love to volunteer at shelters and have their donation link so people can donate to the shelter, but now I’m like, ‘I don’t want the shelter to get swatted, though,’” she continued.

“It’s just a mess. It’s like, how do I do this without risking the animals and the people who work there, you know?”

“Swatting” refers to the practice of calling a large number of armed forces to a specific location as a “prank” toward particular individuals.

With the net being outraged over her IRL Target stream, where she shopped dressed in a French maid outfit, Amouranth’s tentativeness to conduct another public broadcast makes sense in wake of such swattings against Fortnite pro ‘Clix’ and streamers like ICE_POSEIDON.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.

Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.

Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.

All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
