‘Sweet Anita’ is a popular Twitch streamer, best known for her cheeky sense of humor and acute Tourette’s Syndrome — and although she boasts a supportive fanbase, some of her viewers can get a bit too overenthusiastic.

Anita revealed this fact during a broadcast on April 1, after receiving a nice compliment from a viewer who commented on her status as a community figurehead within the Twitch space.

Surprised at the wholesome nature of the comment, Anita thanked the viewer, and also revealed that the kinds of messages she usually gets in her chat are far different.

Twitch streamer “Sweet_Anita” spoke out about the invasive messages she receives from trolls in her chat, and how they affect her when she tries to broadcast.

Instead, Anita claims that the chat messages she generally receives are far less appropriate and quite invasive, usually asking about her relationship status or making lewd passes at her body.

“Sometimes, it can be very wearing and tiring to have the same questions over and over again,” she admitted. “‘Do you have a boyfriend?’ ‘Do you have an Instagram?’ ‘What’s your Snapchat?’ ‘I like your t**s, I like your t**s, do you have a boyfriend?’”

She went on to quote other odd questions she’s received in the past, which included such inquires as, “When was the last time you f**ked anyone?” and, “Do you have tics during sex?”

Sweet Anita skyrocketed to Twitch fame in late 2018, and has been growing ever since, amassing an audience of over 700k followers on the platform.

That isn’t the end of their antics, either: Anita claimed that such users will often spam the messages over and over in her chat, and will even try to donate with their question, so that it will appear on screen and be read aloud by her text-to-speech program.

“They’ll spam it over and over again,” she continued. “And if you ignore it, they’ll try to donate. They’ll try to get it as a question. I’ve seen the dono pop up before the mods mute it.”

Luckily, fans who give Anita genuine feedback and compliments actually keep her “motivated to stay” on Twitch — a comforting fact, after the streamer revealed that she constantly gets asked if she would “cure” her Tourette’s in a previous broadcast.

Despite the haters and trolls, there are viewers out there who make her job worthwhile – ones who aren’t making offensive comments about her personal life in the chat, that is.

Twitch star Jake “Jake’n’Bake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

Jake’n’Bake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is Jake’n’Bake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

Jake’n’Bake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

Jake’n’Bake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on Jake’n’Bake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned JakeNBake could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Jake’n’Bake, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to clear his entire video back-catalog in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

He also plans to counter-claim, but admitted he was “scared.”

“My fear is if I counter-ping this, and it chimes like a little ‘tick’, and some computer just turns at me and goes through everything like ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you’… and starts pinging me for everything I’ve ever done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
