The YouTuber covered a story concerning Twitch streamer ‘Alinity,’ who accidentally opened her Gmail inbox during a live broadcast on November 21 - revealing an email from an individual seeking to buy her underwear.

The story quickly gained massive traction, with even the likes of Drama Alert host KEEMSTAR weighing in on the debacle, claiming that Alinity would have been banned “years ago” if she were a man.

PewDiePie appeared to make fun of KEEM’s comment, but likewise took issue with the way Twitch is being run, predicting an upcoming shift in the "streaming bubble."

“I feel like, the way Twitch is running their website, something is about to… there’s a bubble waiting to be broken,” he stated.

Although Alinity had issued a copy strike against PewDiePie in May for using a clip of her stream in one of his videos (as well as calling her a “Twitch thot”), Pewds didn’t feel that Alinity ought to be banned for her recent blunder, instead choosing to comment on the platform as a whole.

Since the accidental leak, Alinity admitted that she had sold a bra to the interested party back in her college years, and claimed that it was something she would “never do again.” However, KEEMSTAR took issue with the incident, calling out Twitch for its alleged unequal treatment between the sexes and citing his previous ban for simply arguing with another female streamer.
