Content creators can often be money-hungry in their pursuit of internet fame, however this Twitch streamer has taken things to an entirely new level and threatened to ban everyone watching her stream for free.

While popular streamers on Twitch encourage donations and subscriptions, every live broadcast is free to watch at the end of the day. This petty streamer seems to believe that tuning into her broadcast should come at a cost to each and every viewer however.

Mid-way through a Fortnite session on December 8, a random viewer chimed in with a simple question and from there on out, the streamer snapped and took on a spiteful tone when addressing the majority of her audience.

Epic Games - FortniteThe issue stemmed from a casual night of Fortnite shenanigans which saw the streamer competing in small-scale ‘boxfights.’

As a viewer questioned whether or not this particular custom lobby was open to all fans or exclusive to Twitch subscribers, ‘SavageBabyDoll’ seemingly scoffed at the thought of letting viewers engage for free.

“Can you ban every little poor person who can’t afford a sub,” the streamer demanded of her moderators. Before long, viewers were removed from the channel and bans were handed out to those watching for free.

“I was banned from her stream for asking ‘Do I have to be a sub to do these boxfights?’ Twitter user ‘gh0stty_’ explained, leading to an outpouring of controversy online.


It’s not uncommon for Twitch personalities to host game-nights with their viewers, allowing subscribers to join into a lobby and partake in the action on-stream. The issue here stems from SavageBabyDoll failing to address whether her Fortnite ‘boxfight’ custom lobbies were open to all comers or not.

With a total of 57 subscribers on Twitch as prominently displayed under her facecam, it’s no surprise one of her 13,000 followers politely asked to join in. Responding with aggression, the streamer clearly indicated she has no interest in entertaining viewers for free.

Following the controversy, the streamer has since made a valiant effort to keep her social media presence locked down. As of the time of writing, not only has she removed all of her previous broadcasts on Twitch, but the content creator has also locked both her Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Formerly a streamer under the ‘eRa Eternity’ esports organization, SavageBabyDoll was released from the brand on December 10 as a result of her actions.

While her presence on social media remains silent, it remains to be seen if the cash-grabbing streamer will return to Twitch before her current subscribers part way.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
