Twitch Is Looking Into Sexual Assault Allegations Against Their Streamers

The gaming world’s version of the Me Too movement has sparked over the past few days as a number of women have come forward and revealed claims of sexual assault allegations on social media. These cases involve prominent members of the gaming community, including streamers and gaming journalists alike.

However, a lot of these specifically involved Twitch-affiliated personalities and streamers. As such, the streaming platform finally released an official statement yesterday. In it, they said that they’re “actively looking” into the sexual misconduct allegations.

Twitch has been pretty infamous for being too lenient on its streaming partners in the past, especially in cases involving not only sexual assault, but also racism, homophobia, and the like. According to GameSpot, Twitch has sometimes banned the accounts of streamers, but only when these cases have already been investigated and charged by authorities.

Some of these streamers have even been arrested, but only slapped with brief suspensions; such was the case with Australian streamer MrDeadMoth back in 2018. Gamers everywhere are calling for a blackout on streaming services and platforms like Twitch, even as Microsoft is preparing to shut down its own Mixer platform.
