Former MTV star and popular streamer Andy Milonakis called on Twitch to “finally” partner SlikeR, while hitting out at the streaming platform for their “gross” behavior towards the affiliate. 

SlikeR is one of the largest affiliates on Twitch, and with hundreds of thousands of followers, he’s also one of the biggest personalities to not be partnered by the streaming platform.

Popular streamer Andy Milonakis has now stood up in defense of the affiliate, and took the Amazon-owned company to task, calling their behavior “pathetic” and demanding that they finally make him a partner.

SlikeR has infamously been rejected by Twitch for partnership, despite having a following that dwarfs other channels that have been accepted. The company has never given a specific reason why they won’t approve his application.

However, former MTV star Andy Milonakis finally had enough of it, and posted a video on his Twitter blasting the streaming platform. “Hey Twitch, we got to talk. It’s time to partner SlikeR. He’s an affiliate with thousands of subs,” he said.

The popular broadcaster then pointed out how SlikeR makes them money. “He’s not edgy enough to ban. Obviously lots of people like him. He’s generating a lot of content and money for Twitch.”

Milonakis called out the company for using SlikeR in their own advertisements. “You’re putting him on clips for your Twitter. So if you’re not going to partner the guy, then what are you doing!? Why is he stuck in affiliate limbo? It makes no sense at all!”

“He’s still not partnered over some bull s**t where you thought he was a little too edgy like six months ago,” he continued. “Partner the f**king guy!”

The streamer then slammed Twitch calling them “pathetic” and their actions “really f**king gross” before he repeated “give the guy a f**king partner already!”

Twitch was recently criticized by the community for their December 2 tweet, which featured a clip of SlikeR singing which Milonakis brought up in his explosive take down of the streaming platform.

SlikeR himself acknowledged the company’s tweet that featured a video of him, and responded to them with the question “is this a sign?”

Many Twitter users replied favorably to the former MTV stars’ defense of the affiliate, and agreed that at this point it no longer make sense why they refuse to make him a partner.

As of the time of this article, Twitch has not replied to Milonakis or made any comment as to why SlikeR is not considered worthy of partnership, or if their position on the matter will change any time soon.

The streamer has a staggering 198k followers on his channel and thousands of subs, making him one of the largest affiliates on the streaming platform.

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno Leaving OfflineTV
Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
