Invadervie under fire for shaming “cheapskate” viewers for not subbing

Twitch streamer “Invadervie” is coming under fire after shaming unsubscribed viewers for not supporting her channel monetarily — in spite of current global events that have caused many to lose their jobs, entirely.

Like many live streaming platforms, Twitch allows viewers a myriad of ways to support their favorite content creators, by directly donating, subscribing, and even gifting subscriptions to other users.

However, subscriptions come at a cost, and generally include various tiers, with viewers getting more benefits depending on how much they pay.

Twitch streamer “Invadervie” hit out at unsubscribed viewers – leading to mass backlash against the broadcaster from her chat.

Streamer “Invadervie” spoke out on the issue during a broadcast on April 14, where she appeared to shame unsubscribed viewers for not supporting the content they enjoy with a five dollar payment.

“I’m not asking your for a large financial contribution,” she argued. “…it doesn’t matter how broke you are. If you have time to watch Twitch, you have ten dollars, truly. If you don’t have ten dollars, you probably don’t have time to watch Twitch, because you should be working.”

When a viewer explained that they would support Invadervie were they not unemployed, with all their income going towards necessities, the streamer held her ground, arguing that her cost for subscribing was extremely low.

“No one’s gonna convince me that what I’m saying is so rude or so unacceptable or so outrageous,” she continued. “It just simply isn’t. It’s five dollars. It doesn’t cost you that much to sub.”

A viewer explained that they would subscribe if they weren’t unemployed – drawing no sympathy from Invadervie over the issue.

Unsurprisingly, viewers began hitting back at her insensitive comments — leading the streamer to give a scathing reply that accused them of being perverted “cheapskates” using her content to get off.

Viewers were quick to clap back at Invadervie’s statement.

“These people in chat who are making these comments do not appear as immature, childish, cheapskates whatsoever,” she said sarcastically. “They’re just sitting here m**turbating as hard a they can, as quietly as they can, ‘cause their parents are in the next room talking about how disappointed they are in them, going like, ‘Why would I ever pay for this when this sl*t gives it away for free?’”

Invadervie isn’t the first streamer to make such comments, either; broadcaster “BadBunny” notoriously came under fire in January, after shaming her viewers for not subscribing in a debacle that quickly went viral across the net.

Despite her audience’s clear distaste for her stance on the subject, it doesn’t look like Invadervie is backing down anytime soon — even in the face of severe global circumstances.

Popular YouTuber Ethan Dolan has revealed on Instagram the details of his long-term relationship with girlfriend Kristina Alice, who he reconnected with this week after spending most of quarantine apart.

Ethan and his twin Grayson originally rose to popularity on the video app Vine in 2013, and have since gone on to produce content on their highly successful YouTube channel with over 11 million subscribers.

While they have many adoring fans, they haven’t been exempt from drama, such as earlier in July when they were forced to address a homophobic slur used when explaining the bullying they received in high school. In the same month, Ethan released a video detailing how comments online about his acne had severely affected his well-being in the past year.

Last week Ethan revealed his girlfriend to the world on YouTube with his brother Grayson. After spending months apart Kristine was finally able to catch a flight out to Los Angeles from Australia where she lives.

On Monday, Ethan stunned his fans by posting a series of close, romantic pictures to his Instagram alongside an emotional message, which read: “To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life.”

He explained that last December was “one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life” and attributed his success and ability to get through to her support.

Part 1/3. To say the least, this has been a chaotic, stressful, weird, confusing, uneasy year. But because it was spent with the smartest – most caring -best sense of humor having – so pretty I get stunned every time I look at – perfect woman in the world, it has been the best year of my life. Our trip to Hawaii on this day last year, will be a memory I cherish for the rest of my life. I will be forever grateful for how caring you were during one of the most emotionally exhausting months of my life while living in Australia together last December. I wouldn’t have been able to create my most proud project last January without your constant support. When we were forced to quarantine together and be attached at the hip for an additional 5 months longer than we planned… I wasn’t even mad😌 When you had to go back to Australia without knowing when we’d be able to see each other again it was NOT CHILL. Although we unintentionally spent 4 months on opposite sides of the globe with a 17 hour time difference… I still felt closer than ever to you. The hours on FaceTime everyday and random gift care packages were fun. You completely took over my camera roll because I couldn’t help but to screenshot your face every couple seconds. Getting a little part of you tattooed on my arm also contributed to you feeling closer to me I guess 😝 Thank you for making me happy everyday. Thank you for giving me something to always look forward to. Thank you for making me a better version of myself. I love you Photos by: @jordenkeith

It seems as though Ethan will have more to say in the next few days after he labeled the caption only part 1 of 3. For now, the YouTuber has confirmed to the world that not only is he in a far better place than he was last year, but that he is well and truly taken.
