Twitch streamer Macaiyla has called out “toxic” fans who fixate on and obsess over their favorite streamers.

Macaiyla has been in the livestreaming game for a long time, and even helps manage others, so it’s fair to say she’s probably seen the best and worst of the streaming world.

On August 4, she posted a series of tweets, warning fans that streamers “are not your friends” and to stop “presuming things about them.”

Macaiyla has become a popular streamer on Twitch.

“I see it for Tyler, I see it for LS, I see it for all my friends,” she said, referring to League of Legends streamers Tyler1 and LS. “You don’t know them personally so f**k off.”

After not tweeting for a couple of days, Macaiyla returned in the early hours of August 7 with a longer statement clarifying what she meant, explaining that she “didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.”

“The point of this tweet was to point out that obsessing and presuming things about streamers (in a toxic manner) is not okay,” she explained. “This was towards the people who comment on things that they do not know about a creator, since they don’t have any relationship.”

At the end of the statement, she said: “You sit and type as if you know me or the situation (which you don’t) hence why this tweet was even made to begin with. That’s all… I just hate reading hate comments or tweets on people presuming sh*t for likes and comments and karma.”

Macaiyla had some choice words for “toxic” Twitch fans.

Calling the actions of these fans “stupid as f**k,” Macaiyla has clearly had an issue with this for some time and is finally calling out the toxicity.

Obviously, the boundaries between streamers and their fans can sometimes be blurred, especially since they give so much of themselves while broadcasting — but it’s worth remembering there’s a limit, and that viewing someone’s stream doesn’t necessarily make you a friend.

Thomas Petrou slams Bryce Hall’s accusations of stealing from Hype House

TikTok stars Thomas Petrou and Bryce Hall have sparked quite the feud after Hall accused Petrou — co-founder of the Hype House — of stealing money from his own content creators.

It’s no secret that the Hype House and the Sway House aren’t on friendly terms, with the two getting into a fierce beef throughout this past year (remember that time the Sway boys drove to the Hype House to confront Chase Hudson?).

While Hall has confirmed that their feud with the Hype House is definitely real, it seems that he’s going “full send” on his distaste for the group by accusing co-founder Thomas Petrou of outright stealing money from the HH’s content creators.

During an interview with Tom Ward on October 8, Hall made some serious claims about Petrou’s business practices, stating that he’d “stolen” money from the TikTokers working underneath the content collective.

“I’ll say it — he steals money,” Hall stated. “He steals money from those kids. These kids are — I love a lot of people in the Hype House, but they are not the smartest people. …maybe not now, because I haven’t talked to them in four or five months, and maybe somebody said something to him, but he, at the beginning, was stealing money for sure.”

Hall’s claims didn’t go unnoticed; Petrou responded to the accusations shortly thereafter, denying having ever stolen money from those in the Hype House in a pointed Instagram reply on a tea page.

“That’s a complete lie,” he wrote. “I’ve never taken a percentage of anyone in the Hype House. Ask everyone who’s a part of it. The whole reason I started this was to help the people around me make sure they weren’t getting taken advantage of by their managers and agents.”

Thomas Petrou denies Bryce Hall's allegations of stealing money from Hype House creators.

This isn’t the first time Hall has struck out at Petrou in recent days, either; the Sway House TikToker also slammed Thomas’s spending habits, claiming that he “spends his money like an idiot” on pricey cars instead of saving up wisely.

For now, it doesn’t look like there’s any love lost between these two social media stars as things continue to escalate between two of TikTok’s biggest creators.
