Twitch streamer “Alinity Divine” is facing backlash for a pet-related scandal, yet again – but in spite of not being banned for the blunder, an artist claims to have been suspended for depicting the controversy.

While Alinity might be best known for the outrage that spawned after she tossed her pet cat over her head during a game of Apex Legends in July, the streamer is once again coming under fire months later.

This time, Alinity’s Samoyed pup “Luna” got a bit too comfortable as she demonstrated a yoga pose on camera, burying its head into her privates while Alinity laughingly commanded the dog to stop.

The clip quickly went viral online, with critics decrying Twitch for not taking action against Alinity for what many deemed to be an inappropriate breach of conduct.

In the spirit of mass outrage surrounding the incident, one Twitch artist decided to share their take on the situation, whipping up a self-described “silly picture” recreating the moment on his stream.

However, his artwork resulted in an alleged swift ban – unsurprising, considering the explicit nature of the picture, which he addressed in a Tweet shortly thereafter.

According to the artist, “Jon Grim,” Twitch has suspended his channel for seven days over the drawing, which he claims he “totally deserves.”

Despite his calm acceptance of the punishment, Grim spoke out about the controversial moderation decisions made by the platform as of late, claiming that he wishes the site would hold all streamers to the same standards.

“Hey guys, I won’t be streaming the next seven days,” he announced. “I got banned for drawing Alinity, the lover of dogs and thrower of cats, a silly picture. I totally deserve the ban and I’m even glad Twitch took action, just wish Twitch held everyone to the same rules.”

Many users seem to share Grim’s sentiments on the subject, with one commenter writing, “Banned for drawing an incident that wasn’t banned in the first place. Makes sense.”

Alinity herself argued that she tried to push her dog away during the incident, and dubbed the backlash around the clip “ridiculous.” But in spite of her explanation, the internet at large still isn’t satisfied with Twitch’s lack of action on the subject.

Heartbroken gamers react to PS5 destroyed with industrial shredder

A viral clip showing a PlayStation 5 getting minced by an industrial shredder is garnering a ton of reactions among the gaming community who were horrified to watch the prized console getting absolutely destroyed.

It’s been nearly a month since the PS5 was released and it hasn’t gotten any easier to find the console available from brick-and-mortar stores to online marketplaces. The reality is millions of gamers won’t be able to touch Sony’s next-gen console until well after the holiday season is over.

That could explain why some in the community are a bit touchy seeing the hardware being put through a meat grinder, so to speak.

YouTube channel ‘Captain Crunch Experiments’ specializes in putting objects through the high-powered shredder, and it was the PS5’s turn to show us what it’s made of.

The outcome was as you’d expect. The plastic panels of the PS5 were easily devoured into bits, though the full body of the machine took a bit more convincing to get it through to the other end.

As Sony’s metallic behemoth put on one of the most heartbreaking ASMRs to date, the viewers were mixed. Some were impressed that the console put up such a fight, but nearly all PlayStation fans were reeling by the time the video closed.

“What exactly happens here?” one person wrote, before listing out the sins from the production. “Here’s what: Destroying currently out of stock PS5, throwing away rare non-renewable materials, wasting all the electricity that went into producing those PS5s => unnecessary pollution, and producing shit quality unsatisfying videos.”

“This is satisfying but pains me at the same time lol,” another wrote on the YouTube post.

“You need actual help lots of kids want the PS5 For Christmas and you buy one and just shred it like why though a child is now missing out on his PS5 for Christmas that’s because you bought it and shredded it,” someone else said of the clip.

We saw a similar outcry when The Mob’s Classify pranked Froste by slamming a brand new PS5 console to the ground and finishing the job with a sledgehammer.

Gamers will all feel that disturbing knot in the pit of their stomachs watching the video, and the sentiment around the PS5’s destruction won’t ease up until there’s vastly more stock for eager customers.
