AMOURANTH SET TO LOSE ALMOST $500K A YEAR FROM TWITCH ADS BEING REMOVED

WHAT HAPPENED?

On May 18, Amouranth announced that Twitch had suspended ads on her channel without warning, with no exact reason provided.

It is presumed, but cannot be confirmed, that the decision was taken as a result of Amouranth’s ‘swimming pool’ content.

This so-called ‘hot tub meta’ attracted significant scrutiny, and the platform said it was “monitoring” it closely.

According to the streamer herself, an average month of ad revenue on Twitch for her was around $35,000 – $40,000.

Amouranth revealed this figure in the comments of a Reddit thread about her announcement.

Users were shocked to learn of the figure, with one replying “That’s a serious pay cut you just got handed without notice.”
