Popular Twitch streamer Alinity Divine took shots at fellow streamer Pokimane, after being accused of earning money by demonetizing videos on YouTube.

Alinity received an accusatory comment in her chat during an Apex Legends stream from a user named ‘Steflan,’ which read, “Isn’t this the chick who earns money on other people's content by demonetizing/claiming their videos?”

“No, Steflan, that would be Pokimane,” Alinity replied - although she appeared to immediately regret her words. “I probably shouldn't have said that,” she continued. “Oh, damn.”

Alinity’s comments were likely in reference to a scandal surrounding Pokimane from early January, where she was accused of copy striking smaller YouTube channels for using her content in a “non-transformative manner.”

“I will take down videos - when it's a straight reupload of my stream, and when it's like a gross and misleading title," Pokimane said of the issue.

However, Alinity herself was also part of a similar debacle, after copy striking YouTube king PewDiePie’s eye-tracking video in May 2018 for using the phrase “Twitch thot” in reference to her stream.

Alinity’s comments may have also been directed towards Pokimane’s statement on problematic female streamers the day prior, whom she asked to place their hatred elsewhere, rather than hate on other women.

“If you’re a female streamer that actively and exclusively hates on other female streamers, I strongly suggest picking up a hobby lmao,” Pokimane tweeted. “That type of attitude isn’t gonna get you anywhere good.”

Pokimane has yet to respond to Alinity’s statement as of February 24.
