Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has come forward with an apology just days after a heated back and forth exchange with Twitch streamer Natalia ‘Alinity’ Mogollon.

Alinity was caught in the crossfire during a July 1 Twitter beef between Ninja and fellow content creator Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel. While the two argued, she inserted herself into the drama with a joke. It wasn’t long before Ninja unloaded and took his frustrations out on a shocked Alinity.

Days later, the Twitch streamer booted her stream back up for a much shorter broadcast than usual. While she’s often playing games or kicking back with her viewers for hours on end, her July 3 stream lasted just 50 minutes.

Following the recent passing of fellow streamer Byron ‘Reckful’ Bernstein, she addressed how great an impact online bullying can truly have: “You guys can’t just send hoards of hate towards somebody without it having an effect on a person.”

Shortly after this emotional stream, a few key figures in the gaming community took the time to apologize, including Ninja.

Esports insider Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau was among the first to publicly apologize after Alinity’s stream. “I have deleted my recent Alinity tweet as it contributes to a culture of online bullying and toxicity,” he said. “I’m sorry.”

Moments later, Ninja chimed in with a similar sentiment. He expressed regret over his comments in the Twitter thread days prior: “I kept looking back at the tweet and saying I wouldn’t have sent that if I wasn’t a little tilted. I apologize as well.”

With millions of fans across all forms of social media, Ninja has one of the biggest followings in the gaming industry. Publicly issuing an apology certainly carries a weight to it, one that others may be able to learn from and build off of.

Letting cooler heads prevail, Alinity also took a moment to respond too. Sharing a similar regret for her rebuttal against Ninja earlier this week, she apologized for calling the former Mixer star “toxic,” and revealed she had also deleted her tweet.

Alinity’s latest broadcast hit a nerve within the streaming community as a whole. She explained how hurtful comments online can have a lasting impact with truly negative ramifications. 

Therefore, some of the biggest figures in the industry taking responsibility and apologizing for their actions can hopefully inspire others in their behavior online.


Alexandra Botez responds to creepy Twitch viewer asking to see her feet

Twitch streamer and chess guru Alexandra Botez wasn’t going to put up with trolls asking to see her feet during a live stream.

During the broadcast, as Botez was challenging players in chess, a viewer decided to ask the streamer if they could see her feet – something that promoted a hilarious response from Alexandra.

“Sir, you’re not seeing… you know what,” the frustrated streamer began, before pausing with a smirk. “I’m going to show you what’s on my feet, and you’re going to stop asking.”

With that, the 25-year-old lifted up her shoe and showed it off in front of the camera.

“I’m wearing these clogs, okay? This is all you need to know. And if you would ask me that in person, I would turn into Romanian Botez,” she added.

Next, Alexandra pretended to smack the person with her clog while rambling on in Romanian.

“And I would hit you in the head with my shoe,” she warned. “And you wouldn’t see feet because your vision would be blurry.”

Amusingly, after that whole rant, the streamer went right back into challenging whoever she wanted to play next, as if the whole foot fiasco never even happened.

Fans have requested feet before

This isn’t the first time that Alexandra has been asked to show her feet, oddly enough. Earlier in 2020, a viewer donated $3 and asked the streamer to reveal her highly fetishized body part.

Instead of showing them off, however, she simply drew a foot on a piece of paper and held it up for the camera, which confused her two on-stream guests.

“Someone donated to show feet,” she explained, prompting some laughs in the chat.

While Botez has handled the foot remarks quite well thus far, the next time someone dares to ask the chess queen to slip off her shoes to expose her feet, they could be getting a clog to the skull.
