Popular Twitch streamer Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa laid the smackdown on one viewer who claimed she ‘uses’ viewers for money after opening up about her post-streaming plans.  

While many viewers may tune into Twitch to see jaw-dropping gameplay and high-level esports competition, plenty of others tune into the  ‘Just Chatting’ category, with IRL streamers who broadcast their daily routine.

One such streamer is Amouranth, who has amassed over 1.4 million followers on the platform and attracts thousands of viewers a day. While she was recently banned for a slip-up, those fans haven’t gone anywhere – flocking to her channel upon her return. Yet, some trolls also followed suit, prompting the streamer to shut them down with a verbal barrage.

During her September 15 stream, the streamer had been discussing her post-streaming plans to open up a rescue ranch for a wide variety of animals. While many viewers praised her idea, some were more cynical claiming that she “uses thirsty boys” for money and doesn’t give back. That prompted Amouranth to return fire.

“You don’t even know me. Before I started streaming, I had a charity organization already – going to hospital visits as princesses to kids who have cancer,” she said when accused of ‘using’ viewers for money.

Amouranth continued: “The entire reason why I’m streaming right now is to open up a rescue ranch to give much more later on when it actually matters, ok? So you can stop assuming and projecting because no one touches your peepee.”

However, despite getting her set-up ready for the stream, that comment seemed to irk the streamer who responded once again. “He got owned? I’m just being real – you know that’s why they’re mad, right?” Amouranth added.

“There’s no other reason to be mad at a girl for sitting and eating rice and talking about animals other than the fact that no one touches your peepee and you’re angsty. That’s like it, that’s just the truth.”

While her incredible rant may not have gone as viral as some of her other clips, Amouranth’s shots at the viewer might just serve as a warning to anyone else who tries to take her on – especially when she’s dealing with serious topics.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
