Alinity, one of the most-watched female personalities of Twitch, recently announced that she thought of committing suicide because of online abuse. Several Twitch streamers immediately apologized after the incident.
Alinity, whose real name is Natalia Mogollon, streams World of Warcraft on Twitch regularly and also streams her daily life. As a result, after joining Twitch in 2012, she acquired a significant number of followers (1.1 million followers). Yet lately, after multiple scandals on the site over the last year, she has faced criticism.
The star told her viewers that harassment has become overwhelming over her past mistakes in her latest broadcast. She's even hitting out for pushing it too far at cancel culture.
In summary, reported by the National Institute of Mental Health from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) WISQARS Leading Causes of Death Statistics in 2017, suicide was the tenth leading cause of death in the United States. Suicide took the lives of 47,000 people, with 7,948 of them belonging to the age group 25 to 34.
As noted by Dexerto.com, Alinity disclosed in her video titled "Very very sad. We need to chat" how constant hate online has begun to affect her seriously.
"The s**t you guys say really affects people, okay? You guys have no idea how many times I've wanted to kill myself. How many times I've spent my entire night, trying to figure how I was going to end my life. I just want you guys to know, it's really serious. You guys can't just send hoards of hate towards somebody without it having an effect on a person," she said.
Dotesports noted that her breakdown stemmed from reports of neglect of animals that included suspicious conduct against her other pets in her posts.
Once both the police and community control investigated her, they found no evidence that the dogs were neglected in any way.
The entire video can be seen here below.
Hi :) I am Alinity! I love games and animals. I've been streaming on Twitch for 7 years and love to chat with people!
Ninja apologizes to Alinity after breaking down on Stream
Only days after a tense back and forth exchange with Twitch streamer Natalia 'Alinity' Mogollon, Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins has apologized. Alinity has been caught in the crossfire between Ninja and fellow web developer Felix 'xQc' Lengyel during a July 1 Twitter dispute. When the two were fighting, she put a joke into the drama.
It wasn't long before unloading Ninja and taking out his frustrations on a shocked Alinity. Days later, the Twitch streamer booted back up her Stream for a much shorter than usual broadcast. Although she sometimes plays games or kicks back with her viewers for hours on end, her Stream from July 3, Friday, only lasted 50 minutes.
Following fellow streamer Byron 'Reckful' Bernstein's recent speech, she discussed how significant online bullying can have. "You guys can't just send hate hoards to someone without it having an effect on a person," she said. Esports analyst Rod 'Slasher' Breslau was among the first to apologize publicly after streaming Alinity.
He wrote on his Twitter account that he deleted his previous Tweet as it contributed to the culture of online and toxicity. Ninja chimed in moments later with a similar message. He expressed remorse over his comments on the Twitter thread days before.
Same, I kept looking back at the tweet and saying I wouldn't have sent that if I wasn't a little tilted. I apologize as well @AlinityTwitch https://t.co/JycL15AJs6 — Ninja (@Ninja) July 3, 2020
