A small Twitch streamer, ‘SleepyMia’, has lashed out at the streaming platform following her ban for animal abuse. This comes amid another controversy surrounding Alinity’s behavior with her pets. 

SleepyMia is a smaller Twitch streamer, who had nearly 15,000 followers prior to her ban. She regularly streamed games such as The Witcher 3, as well as frequenting the ‘Just Chatting’ category on Twitch.

However, on December 5 Mia incurred a ban from the streaming platform as a result of animal abuse. This led to her launching a scathing attack on the streaming platform, and their preferential treatment of Alinity, who has avoided bans despite controversy over her interactions with animals. 

TwitchSleepyMia’s Twitch channel now displays the familiar message.

Alinity has previously been embroiled in a number of controversies surrounding her behavior with her pets. The most recent came on December 3, when her dog interrupted her yoga pose and many felt the interaction was inappropriate. Alinity dismissed the backlash as “ridiculous”

SleepyMia has slammed Twitch for their failure to ban Alinity, after she was banned for alleged animal abuse. 

“I was banned for f**king animal abuse when I was playing with my f**king dog,” she tweeted. “Thank you Twitch. Me rolling and playing with my 90lbs pitbull.” Attached to the tweet was a gif of the infamous moment Alinity threw her cat overhead, for which she did not get banned. 

She elucidated on the situation, explaining that she was banned for “audible yelps” coming from her dog. These are claims she denies, explaining that her dog rarely makes noise and none of her viewers made any complaints. 

She also alleged that Twitch have failed to provide any clips of the incident, fuelling her anger to a greater extent.

Mia also explains that the “audible yelps” Twitch heard likely came from her second dog, who suffers from a collapsed trachea and so makes some unusual sounds for a dog. 

She concluded her rant with another dig at Alinity: “Remember kids, if you’re not a precious twitch staff waifu, don’t even dare to f**king TOUCH your animals.”

It is not the first time Twitch have been accused of preferential treatment, with many on the platform arguing their community guidelines are inconsistently enforced. Twitch do not comment publicly on community guideline violations, but may liaise privately with the streamer in question.

Popular influencer Logan Paul was left stunned when YouTube artist Vexx sent him a Pokemon Trading Card Game item that is almost as tall as a house. 

In 2020, Logan Paul’s self-proclaimed love of Pokemon helped kick off a TCG craze that swept over sites like YouTube and Twitch. He spent thousands upon thousands on rare cards and booster packs.

In January, the Nintendo mega-fan was left floored when an artist surprised him with a one-of-a-kind collectible that no one else has.

Logan Paul owns “world’s largest Pokemon card”

Logan Paul’s love for the Game Freak RPG runs deep as the star was even willing to fly to Las Vegas and drop $500k on a 1st Edition Charizard card. However, recently the 25-year-old received one TCG item that is priceless from YouTuber Vexx.

In his January 17 upload, the artist exclaimed “This is going to be the world’s biggest Pokemon card ever!” while revealing his custom Pokemon card to weigh 75kg/165 pounds. Vexx then showed viewers how he made the gigantic art piece which features Gen I ‘mon Charizard and Squirtle.

Paul’s jaw dropped open after the card arrived at his house, before shouting,”Whoa. What the fuck. This is sick!” The influencer then was blown away by how accurate the art piece details were.”This is sick. He murdered it. This is very very very impressive.”

While the 25-year-old said he could “no longer spend money” on cards in 2020, the star teased his return to collecting in a January 17 tweet after reacting to a 1999 Base Set booster box selling for $408k. “This is insane. the price more than doubled since i bought mine last year… gets me so excited for my next box break,” he tweeted.

Despite his insane collection of Pokemon merchandise, Logan Paul confessed that the giant card was one of the best things he’s ever owned: “We are all obsessed with this piece. It’s probably the coolest piece of Pokemon art I own. It’s beautiful! I love this so much.”

Technically, Vexx’s custom art piece is not an official TCG collectible. Though it really does look like a Pokemon card as it gets every little detail right. Plus it truly is a one-of-a-kind Charizard item that any fan would love to have.
