People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have called for streamer Alinity Divine to be banned from Twitch over treatment of her pets during broadcasts. 

The American animal rights organization has accused the popular streamer of “cruelty” in a statement posted on December 4, and it’s not the first time that they have advocated the platform take action.

Back in July, Alinity was accused of abusing cats after being seen throwing her pet during a livestream and spitting vodka in another cat’s mouth. PETA demanded her removal then and have now moved to reiterate their stance.

Alinity has never faced a ban on the streaming website for these incidents, although some viewers have complained about her treatment of her pets, particularly, in the past.

One Twitter user, clearly concerned by the content Alinity has been putting out on Twitch, responded to one of PETA’s posts: “Please, check the sh*t Alinity is doing with her dog on Twitch…we’re done with Twitch not doing anything about animal abuse, and we have no options left.”

In response, PETA reiterated their stance to have the streamer’s channel removed. They said: “We are aware of the cruelty and have demanded Twitch take her off of the platform.”


The user who reached out to the organization, TheMaxTheory, cited a recent incident on stream where Alinity’s behavior with dogs was called into question.

The clip has since gone insanely viral, resulting in renewed scrutiny on Alinity’s channel. Calls for her to be banned were quickly shrugged off by the streamer herself, describing it as a “ridiculous” drama.

“People are like really mad about this. Like, people think I should be banned for that,” she said on December 1. “I think it’s so ridiculous, like seriously guys, y’all have gone way too far.”

The dog sniffing her crotch on stream has sparked some mainstream media coverage as well, with the HuffPost posting an article titled ‘Here’s Why Dogs Sniff Your Crotch When You’re On Your Period’. She shared with her followers on Twitter, joking about people going back through her broadcasts to find similar moments.

She tweeted: “I stream 6 days a week and get 12 periods a year. That’s at least 48 broadcasted period days! So there are literally people combing through thousands of hours of streams.”

As of December 5, Alinity’s channel remains intact. With the clip now shared widely, it’s unlikely that retrospective action will be taken by Twitch, despite PETA’s concerns.

TikTok’s hottest couple, Addison Rae and Bryce Hall, have sparked rumors that they might be getting engaged after Addison flexed a flashy ring on Instagram.

Bryce and Addison — affectionately referred to as ‘Braddison’ by shippers — are two of TikTok’s most popular content creators, who were long rumored to be secretly dating despite their repeated denial to the contrary.

However, on November 30, the two finally confirmed that they are officially dating, and have been together for nearly two months (although they did break up earlier this year after just three days together).

Since their surprise announcement, they haven’t held back with their lovey-dovey social media posts about each other, complete with cuddly, PDA-filled TikToks. And of course, while both creators are still so young, fans of the couple are eager for more content – especially if they decide to tie the knot in the future.

On Thursday, January 14, Addison was spotted by paparazzi leaving XIV Karats LTD jewelry store in Beverly Hills – and  later on, posted a picture of a new sparkly ring on her ring finger to her Instagram story, leaving fans in a frenzy over what it might mean.

Typically, an engagement ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and with the way the picture was taken, it does look like it’s on her left hand.

However, while it has prompted speculation that the pair are or could potentially be getting engaged, discussion on drama Instagram account TikTokroom heavily suggests that the pair are getting each other promise rings, instead.

This is something that several famous TikTok couples have done to show their commitment to each other, including Cynthia Parker and Quinton Griggs, as well as Alex Warren and Kouvr Annon, so it wouldn’t be so surprising if this is the case.

Either way, Bryce and Addison are clearly about as lovey-dovey as they could possibly be at this point, and engagement ring or not, the pair look like they’re in it for the long-haul.
