Controversial Apex Legends.

That wasn’t the only instance of animal mistreatment documented during her broadcasts, either: footage later surfaced of Alinity feeding her cat vodka through a kiss during an older stream, sparking backlash across the net.

Even animal rights organizations like PETA and the SPCA have taken action in light of the controversy, with the latter stating that a “formal cruelty complaint” has been filed with the organization due to her actions.

The outrage against Alinity has grown so great that a petition has even been published asking for Twitch to ban the streamer from their platform, with the author, Cai Samuels, claiming that “Twitch has a clear bias and they favor women streamers.”

As of writing this article, the petition already boasts over 11,600 signatures, smashing the original 5,000 – and supporters are not shy about airing out their grievances concerning Alinity’s actions.

Fans are lashing out against Alinity’s actions by signing a petition asking Twitch to remove her from their platform.

“Really not a debate at all,” one user wrote of the scandal. “Not only is what she’s doing wrong, but with Twitch NOT taking action, it’s sending a message that this is OK. Disgusting.”

“She has consistently shown a lack of care with regards to her animals, other streamers, audience and so on,” another wrote. “When your priority is views and you lose sight of common decency, you need to have someone step in and remind you that your pedestal is fragile and should be built on integrity.”

Even other popular Twitch streamers spoke out against Alininty’s behavior, with the likes of Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys calling the cat-tossing drama “messed up.”

“She did deadass yeet the cat,” Pokimane said during a July 20 stream. “That’s messed up! Especially because you can’t see what’s around her.”

While Alinity has since issued a public apology regarding the debacle, she has yet to receive a ban for the offense, although she did receive a three-day ban in late May after accidentally showing porn during a broadcast.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

Future’s new Ringbrothers Chevy K5 Blazer

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
