During his April 24 broadcast, Twitch streamer Trainwreckstv theorized that Alinity’s recent wardrobe malfunction on camera was actually intentional for views.

Popular Twitch streamer Alinity kicked off a new whirlwind of controversy when she had a wardrobe malfunction during her April 24 stream, which had some calling for her to be banned.

Fellow personality Trainwreckstv shared his own thoughts on the incident, and revealed that he believes it might be a ploy for attention. The Scuffed podcast producer told his audience “it doesn’t make sense.”

Trainwrecks shares theory on Alinity

The streamer weighed in on the incident during his latest broadcast, and revealed to his chat that he had doubts about the whole situation. “There isn’t much to say, you know? You throw with kitty, you throw with t**ty, it’s all the same these days,” he joked.

He then pointed out a theory he had on her years ago. “Go back two years, I said something along the lines of ‘if you notice with her, every 3-4 months it’s usually on the same time period as when the graph starts evening out or losing.'”

Trainwrecks used his hand to show her viewership numbers dipping lower and lower, before continuing. “Every 3-4 months you will see a big event. I think the way she sees it, she will take a small ‘L’ for the greater traction going upwards. Every 3-4 months there’s something. Think about it.”

The popular Twitch personality later dove into the incident itself, and explained how the whole thing was confusing. “Based on what I saw on Twitter, she was trying to put a pillow under her shirt? Or whatever the f**k she was doing.”

However he then revealed why he had doubts about Alinity’s actions. “I’ve never seen someone not only lift the top layer of their shirt, but also lift their sports bra or whatever the f**k that was. The pillow’s not going up here!” he said, touching his chest. “It really doesn’t make sense at all, if you think about it.”

He followed up his comments with a tweet that referenced Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel getting banned on February 29 for showing nudity in a game. “My man xqc shows a pixel wearing a bikini & catches a ban, while another streamer who catapulted her career or cat, i forgot which one & pulled her shirt & bra up catches 6 sponsors & a new twitch deal,” he said.

Trainwrecks genuinely seemed shocked when his chat informed him that she had not been banned over it.

However, after much backlash, Alinity announced on April 25 she was self-imposing a three-day suspension on herself, saying “it is fair.” Hourse later, she was suspended by the platform officially, although the length of the suspension is unknown.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
