A speedrunner at Awesome Games Done Quick has taken shots at popular Twitch streamer Natalia “Alinity” Mogollon over the drama surrounding her treatment of her pet cat.

The streamer, who goes by the name BloodThunder, was on stage playing 2007 classic BioShock and approaching the end of his performance at the event when he found a dead cat.

He decided to show some humility and give the cat some grace in its death, picking it up and choosing to take it to a safe place. However, he couldn’t resist taking a dig at Alinity in the process.

Twitch: alinityAlinity has come under fire several times for her treatment of her pets.

In July 2019, Alinity was hounded by users online for her mistreatment of her cat after a clip went viral of her throwing it over her head during an Apex Legends stream.

Since then she has regularly been criticized for it and the internet hasn’t let her forget. BloodThunder is one of those people, who opted to crack a joke about it while caring for the deceased cat.

He said: “The thing is, if you’re going to have a pet, you’ve got to take care of it. You don’t want to be like your favorite Twitch streamer and just throw it around.” He finishes off by telling the cat “you’re going to live happily ever after.”

Although no names were mentioned, the joke was a clear dig at Alinity, and it elicited a great reaction. The crowd found it hilarious, and his peers sat behind him were awkwardly stifling laughter, covering their mouths or simply looking like they were trying not to smile.

A couple of minutes later, BloodThunder completed the game, with an impressive time of 49 minutes and 59 seconds – which, somehow, was still 10 minutes shy of the world record.

Despite the fact that players are literally locked in on completing games as fast as possible, GamesDoneQuick always seems like an incredibly chilled-out environment, and little jokes like this just prove it.

After just over one year following his permanent ban from Twitch, dellor’s channel has been reinstated on the platform. The former Overwatch pro now says it’s his “second chance.”

Matt ‘dellor’ Vaughn has had a turbulent streaming career – he was dropped from his Overwatch team, Toronto Esports, after a racist outburst, effectively ending his career as a pro player.

Then, in 2019, he was banned from Twitch after telling his female teammate in Apex Legends to “cook a sandwich.” This ban originally earned him an indefinite suspension, before it was reduced to 30 days.

Upon his return however, his partnership had been revoked, leaving him without a sub button, seriously impacting his income. Then, in October 2019, dellor was “banned indefinitely for “self-harm” for breaking a keyboard on stream.”

This ban prompted the hashtag #freedellor on Twitter, as fans thought the permanent ban was harsh. But, Twitch kept firm, and dellor eventually moved to streaming on YouTube instead.

He pleaded with Twitch to allow him back onto the platform on a handful of occasions. Finally, on October 6, seemingly out of the blue, dellor’s channel was reinstated, and his ban lifted.

“I had given up all hope,” dellor said on Twitter. “After everything I have said about them, Twitch actually unbanned me.”

His channel, complete with over 550,000 followers (and likely more as Twitch rebuilds the follow count after a suspension), is fully intact.

This doesn’t mean though that he will necessarily return to streaming on Twitch though. Being unbanned on the platform at least means he is able to play with friends who are streaming on Twitch themselves.

He is still not partnered on the platform and does not have a subscribe button. He will still be able to earn money through donations, but to access subscriptions or bits will need to become a Twitch affiliate.

However, if he wants to become a partner again, it would mean stopping his YouTube streams altogether, where he has now built up a following since his time away from Twitch.
