Popular Twitch streamer Kaitlyn ‘Amouranth’ Siragusa has hit back at critics who take shots at her broadcasts and how she chooses to dress during them.

Amouranth is one of the most viewed IRL streamers on Twitch with a loyal following who tune into her daily streams. She has amassed just shy of 1,000,000 followers but to some, she is a controversial figure.

The streamer often pushes the boundaries of what the livestreaming platform allows with streams where she wears a small amount of clothing while playing a game that forces her to be active such as Just Dance or broadcasting a workout live from the gym.

During her stream on March 17, the streamer was quick to point out the hypocrisy of the comments cast by viewers when watching a stream on Twitch, compared to watching mainstream entertainment like a TV show or a newly-released movie.

In between performances of Just Dance, she said: “Don’t you love the logic when people are like – put some clothes on, kids are watching. I’m like, first of all, have you seen Barbie outfits? Way less than what I got on. Second of all, you don’t go to an R-rated television programme and tell them to put clothes on or a PG-13 one ever.”

Amouranth added: “You don’t go into a movie theater and shout at the screen put clothes on because there are age restrictions – just like there are on this channel. So, if kids are watching, whose fault is that? I would say the parents.”

However, the streamer wasn’t finished there. She continued to fire back at the critics by stating “clothes aren’t the problem” and that adults are the ones who are “iffy about bodies” because “kids don’t care.”

While the critics may be vocal, it doesn’t seem like they’ll be able to deter her from streaming in her usual fashion.

They may not like the fact that the streamer somewhat skirts the rules but seeing as she hasn’t been banned and has been allowed to continue broadcasting on the platform, it seems Twitch is fine with her too.

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
