Twitch streamer Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa has discovered an interesting technique to deal with people hitting on her during IRL streams, and it's inspired by one of the Star Wars franchise's favorite characters.
The popular Twitch personality has had a dabble with numerous activities during her broadcasts, but can mostly be found in the Just Chatting section – dancing, talking, or streaming in the outdoors in IRL (In-real life) broadcasts.
While streamers of her size sometimes have a hard time walking around completely uninterrupted while she's recording, with over 1.2 million followers on her channel, it's the plans of people looking to hit on her that she's now planning to thwart.
In fairness, she's found a pretty good technique to stop them too, purely because of the randomness of it. Speaking to members of her chat during a livestream on December 19, she decided to mix up the sound of her voice from time to time, before deciding that it could be a viable way of communicating with her suitors.
"For the rest of the stream I will talk in Wookiee, including our dating advice," she said, before replicating the noise of Chewbacca from Star Wars.
Amouranth continued: "Next time I see someone in an IRL stream that's how I should communicate. If they try to hit on me, they'll be like: 'Hey can I have your number,' and I'll be like: 'Grrrrr' out of nowhere!"
The reaction from the chat is one that was probably expected, pure laughter, but it would be interesting to see how somebody would react if she actually did pull this off in a street, at a mall, or even at a restaurant when streaming IRL.
Whether or not she'll stay true to her word and give it go in public remains to be seen, but would there possibly be a way of salvaging a conversation after this? Who knows.
