Popular Twitch streamer Holly Wolf has hit back at criticism over her choice of attire on stream, after a clip of her gardening hit 250,000 views within 24 hours.
Holly Wolf is well known on Twitch for her gaming and IRL streams, as well as cosplaying, which has led to her having nearly 20,000 followers on the streaming platform.
However, on June 21, a clip of her gardening went viral, amassing nearly a quarter of a million views in 24 hours, making it her most viewed clip by over 100,000 views. Now, though, the streamer has hit back at accusations of her deliberately wearing sexually provocative clothing to amass attention.
Popular subreddit LiveStreamfail was largely responsible for the views on the clip, and users there were quick to criticize the streamer, arguing that her clothing was intentionally suggestive. The Reddit post itself is sarcastically entitled ‘thank god her underwear isn’t showing! That would be incredibly inappropriate.’
Others echoed this attitude, referring to the Twitch guidelines, which state that ‘undergarments’ must not be shown on stream. They state that “Attire intended to be sexually suggestive and nudity are prohibited. Attire (or lack of attire) intended to be sexually suggestive includes undergarments, intimate apparel, or exposing/focusing on male or female genitals, buttocks, or nipples.”
Many were arguing that Holly sneakily avoided breaking said rule, by simply wearing no underwear instead. One joked that “Your underwear can't show, if you don't wear any”.
Holly hit back at the criticism, addressing the Reddit thread specifically on Twitter.
“Holy mother of god a clip of my gardening has a quarter of a million views on twitch.... WHY?” she asked in a first tweet.
"an inch of booty and they go nuts! Wait till they see a girl in actual booty shorts.. MINDS BLOWN," Holly followed up. "I made it a point to never bend over facing the camera, and made sure my shorts weren’t riding up. My butt is big it tries to eat things."

She even tweeted images of herself in “booty shorts”, compared with the shorts she was wearing in clip.

While some community members believe Holly should incur some kind of punishment for the clip, the Twitch streamer herself clearly isn’t concerned.
