Amouranth accused buying bots for viewers and followers but says that the haters only fuel her passion to stream on Twitch everday.
According to Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa, who says she has “boundless energy” to create content and prove the haters who have accused her of buying bots wrong and she will not stop Twitch streaming until she’s banned.
With 203 million viewers and 4.9 million followers in 2017, Amouranth cemented her place as one of Twitch’s most popular streamers. Even so, the polarising 28-year-old streamer has been met with a slew of backlash.
Viewers and parents alike have labelled her content smut, and Amouranth has been caught promoting her OnlyFans account to an underage viewer on the Twitch app, which is clearly against their Terms of Service agreement.
Now, some who Amouranth would declare haters, have called her out for “botting” buying viewers and followers through a website.
“I’m surprised that her chat is so quiet considering she attracts tens of thousands each time she streams. It’s possible that they’re interacting with her content in a ‘different way’, or that they’re simply bots “a commenter noted.
Fun fact: Amouranth once let it slip that she earns close to $100,000 per month (approximately 1.2M per year) making her one of the wealthiest Twitch streamers ever.
But apparently she isn’t phased. According to Amouranth, the Twitch haters who have accused her of buying viewer and follower bots are also the ones who encourage her to stream every day and push her to do even better. Amouranth says she won’t stop working as long as they’re around. Amouranth will stream everyday until she gets banned.
Amouranth asserted that her hates are infinitely petty with their remarks, and the drive to prove them wrong is an endless energy source.
On January 4, Amouranth made the Twitch declaration on her @wildkait Twitter account, posting her promise to continue streaming as long as she has haters.
“I don’t hate what I do, or how much I do it. It’s the harassment. The unwarranted danger that comes from when I’m just doing my own thing. All women creators get varying degrees of harassment, but being live exposes you to the most extreme form of said persecution,” Amouranth tweet
Amouranth is many levels above even some of the most engaging Twitch streamers. Each one of her streams averages approximately 10 thousand viewers. Some of have accused her of enabling emoji only chat to disguise the fact that a lot of her viewers and followers are purchased bots.
According to followeraudit.com, 20% of people Amouranth’s 1.5 million Twitter followers are bots; that’s a whopping 360,000 purchased followers.
