Popular Twitch streamer Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa has been heavily criticized after she was caught lying about streaming in a store by telling staff she was “video calling”.

As per Twitch’s community guidelines, it is prohibited to share content on private property, without permission, meaning IRL streamers have to be extremely careful when livestreaming in stores.

Nevertheless, Amouranth had no interest in stopping her own IRL stream on June 23, despite being questioned by a staff member if she was in fact recording in the shop.

Rather than ending her broadcast to comply with the guidelines, she simply lied to the staff worker in order to prolong her stream by suggesting she was “video chatting” and continued to browse the store’s stock.

“Are you video taping in here?” asked the store worker, to which Amouranth responded: “we’re just video chatting, is that not okay?” The streamer was then given the all clear to carry on.

This isn’t the first time the controversial streamer has been banned for filming without permission in a public place after serving a 12-hour suspension for streaming in a gym last year.

Despite most establishments having a no camera policy, her stream was live and although she claimed to not interact with any other gym goers, she was caught impersonating Shia LaBeouf’s famous ‘just do it’ meme behind an unaware stranger.

It remains to be seen whether Amouranth will face another ban as a result of her failure to disclose she was streaming, with plenty of Redditors, who are annoyed to see her dodge suspensions in the past, rallying together to mass report her channel.

“Lying about streaming is directly prohibited in the ToS, but just like last time she straight up lied, nothing will happen,” said one angry Redditor. 

She continued to stream ASMR on her channel after her IRL broadcast ended meaning Twitch are yet to take any action against her account.


Alexandra Botez responds to creepy Twitch viewer asking to see her feet

Twitch streamer and chess guru Alexandra Botez wasn’t going to put up with trolls asking to see her feet during a live stream.

During the broadcast, as Botez was challenging players in chess, a viewer decided to ask the streamer if they could see her feet – something that promoted a hilarious response from Alexandra.

“Sir, you’re not seeing… you know what,” the frustrated streamer began, before pausing with a smirk. “I’m going to show you what’s on my feet, and you’re going to stop asking.”

With that, the 25-year-old lifted up her shoe and showed it off in front of the camera.

“I’m wearing these clogs, okay? This is all you need to know. And if you would ask me that in person, I would turn into Romanian Botez,” she added.

Next, Alexandra pretended to smack the person with her clog while rambling on in Romanian.

“And I would hit you in the head with my shoe,” she warned. “And you wouldn’t see feet because your vision would be blurry.”

Amusingly, after that whole rant, the streamer went right back into challenging whoever she wanted to play next, as if the whole foot fiasco never even happened.

Fans have requested feet before

This isn’t the first time that Alexandra has been asked to show her feet, oddly enough. Earlier in 2020, a viewer donated $3 and asked the streamer to reveal her highly fetishized body part.

Instead of showing them off, however, she simply drew a foot on a piece of paper and held it up for the camera, which confused her two on-stream guests.

“Someone donated to show feet,” she explained, prompting some laughs in the chat.

While Botez has handled the foot remarks quite well thus far, the next time someone dares to ask the chess queen to slip off her shoes to expose her feet, they could be getting a clog to the skull.
