CoD streamer claims she was doxxed & sent death threats over her clothing

An image of two female Twitch personalities went viral, and now one of the streamers is saying she’s receiving death threats as a result of it.

How streamers dress on Twitch has long been a point of contention among viewers, and that might have reached its boiling point shortly into 2020.

Paymoneywubby posted an image of two females, asking if viewers could tell which one was from adult site Chaturbate and which was from the Amazon-owned platform, before revealing both of them were Twitch streamers.

While he did block out of the faces of the two streamers, people were still able to figure out who they were, and ghostgirlxoxx, the woman with the avocado covering her face, says she has been doxxed and given death threats.

“Yeaaaa that’s me on the left in the picture, thanks to him now I have death threats and someone found my address,” she tweeted.

Ghostgirl revealed who she was in a response to Wubby’s tweet that also went viral, which claimed people only mention the Twitch Terms of Service and Community Guidelines when it comes to female streamers.

“Funny how when the topic of breaking Twitch’s TOS comes up, it’s ONLY about t*ts,” fellow streamer suspenders said. “Never about the RAMPANT racism, homophobia, transphobia and other bigotry that actually affects streamers.”

Three days after Wubby’s initial tweet, another streamer discovered ghostgirl was the third-largest Call of Duty channel on Twitch and posted a screenshot of her to his 22,000+ Twitter followers, asking why she is being watched by so many people.

She says she’s been streaming for four years now and at this point, it’s about more than just the money.

That’s not all that surprising to hear considering a big part of being a streamer is connecting with your audience, and doing things they like to see.

With that said, she does concede that for a lot of people it is about the cash rather than the enjoyment of interacting with viewers.

Ghostgirl says she belly dances, which is why she streams with an exposed stomach, but she plays a wide variety of games on the platform.

Some of these games include Call of Duty, Outlast, and League of Legends, just to name a few.

She boasts over 58,000 followers on Twitch, with nearly 3,000 gained since the Wubby tweet.

It should be eye-opening to many to see this type of behavior happen to female streamers, especially since it’s not the first time.

Call of Duty

xQc stunned by toxic Call of Duty players in Black Ops Cold War

Twitch Star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is no stranger to trash talk, but what he heard while playing Call of Duty: Cold War was enough to throw even him for a loop.

Call of Duty: Cold War is one of the hottest games on Twitch right now, and xQc certainly seems to have gotten a taste of the series’ legendary chatroom toxicity.

We’re not saying that this is a symptom of the CoD community overall, but the series has built up a reputation for being host to some hilariously venomous lobbies. xQc found this out firsthand while sitting in a lobby, and after getting knocked out.

Ask anyone who’s played Call of Duty for long enough, and there’s a good chance is they’ll have a hilarious story about a toxic lobby or three that they’ve been a part of over the years. Now, xQc can officially add that to his list of accomplishments as well.

During a late-night/early morning stream on November 17, Felix ran into a rowdy lobby he tried to calm down in vain, before being called out himself.

“Guys, guys, guys, it’s 3 AM on a f***ing Monday, you guys are playing Call of Duty talking shit,” the former Overwatch pro begged, to no avail, and got told to shut his mouth, just not quite with that exact term.

After this, you’d probably figure things couldn’t get more radioactive, right? Well, you would be wrong, because Felix also ran into some incredibly toxic personalities while he was playing.

After getting knocked out, xQc asked, “It was you right?” before being told in graphic detail what his assailant wanted to do to him. We won’t type the quote out here, but the clip below should give you the gist.

The Canadian does come from the wild west that can be Overwatch games, but nothing really compares to being cursed out by an absolute random in CoD.

Whether Felix will return to Black Ops remains to be seen, especially since he seems to have had the full experience during this stream alone.
