An up-and-coming streamer has broken down and expressed her frustration at the “inconsistency” of  Fortnite-related dancing broadcasts, ExoHydraX was recently met with a permanent ban on Twitch after an accidental clothing mishap among other suggestive clips that teased the line between suitable and unsafe for the platform. 

With recent examples of notorious streamers being allowed to remain on Twitch, despite similar violations of the community guidelines and terms of service, ExoHydraX was quick to voice her displeasure.

Following the Twitch ban, ExoHydraX took to YouTube on October 11 to address her audience and convey her disappointment.

Discussing the specific situation that led to the ban, she revealed that a select group of hateful individuals were targeting her stream and mass reporting with the intention of getting her removed from the platform.

“Somebody can be so f*cking mean and they can get away with it,” the streamer said, explaining how unfair it is that others on the platform can be negative and hurl abuse at streamers with little to no consequence.

“These people were saying terrible sh*t and they mass reported me like…I don’t want to f*cking cry,” she expressed. “ It’s not even me getting banned, it’s not even just that, it’s the fact that these were the people that reported me and I just feel like they won.”

Discussion begins at the 9:35 mark for mobile users.

This particular incident sparked a massive debate within the streaming community as to just how inconsistent the application of Twitch guidelines have been in the past.

Reddit user ‘SpareUser3’ stated, “I don’t give a sh*t if they ban suggestive content, and I don’t give a sh*t if they don’t. I think we all just want some consistency across the board and apparently that’s too much to ask for.”

“That pisses me off, I’m so sorry for crying. When I think about that it just really pisses me off,”  ExoHydraX concluded as she moved on to other topics and tried to make the most of her first full broadcast on YouTube.

Not the only banned Twitch streamer to recently switch platforms, Matthew ‘Dellor’ Vaughan was met with a great deal of success upon his transition to YouTube. Perhaps the community will support ExoHydraX just the same following the Twitch backlash.

Social media stars Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have called out the “super weird, super uncomfortable” practices of paparazzi following them and camping outside their homes. 

With the success of TikTok around the globe, a new batch of social media stars have been born, but perhaps, there have been none more successful than the D’Amelio sisters, Charli and Dixie. 

The pair have a massive fanbase across TikTok, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, and obviously, that means they attract media attention too.

However, it seems as if some paparazzi have been overstepping their boundaries, with the sisters calling them out for sitting outside their houses.

Charli and Dixie have seen unrivalled success on TikTok.

It came during the January 21 episode of their 2 Chix podcast as the pair got into things that have really been grinding their gears, with the paparazzi camping outside their homes being a big one. 

“Something that’s been grinding my gears – paparazzi. Kevin, Josh, this is for you guys – please stop waiting outside my house,” Charli said. “Super weird, super uncomfortable, super big invasion of privacy. Home is supposed to be a safe space, not where you have people waiting for you. Super weird, thank you.”

Dixie added that whenever she leaves her apartment, she’ll see paparazzi illegally parked outside, and they’ll follow her when driving. “They used to be really chill, we’d be like ‘hey, not right now we’re just sitting outside’ but now, I feel like since everything is closed, and they’re getting zero content from anyone, they kind of know our routine now,” she added.

Topic begins at 0:30

Dixie further noted that it’s quite “scary” in Charli’s situation, as her home is all glass and so there’s plenty of ways to look inside, if they wanted to do so. 

TikTokers have called out paparazzi before overstepping boundaries, with some being called out for “stalking” the D’Amelio’s in particular, even when they’re not doing much at all.

Whether or not they change after being called out by the sisters remains to be seen, but, maybe they’ll back off a little bit.
