Twitch streamer Squeex gives his take on fat streamers complaining about Reddit hate threads
During a recent livestream, Twitch streamer and Super Mario 64 speed runner Squeex shared their thoughts and opinions on high profile streaming personalities.
He went on a minute-long rant about streamers complaining about hate threads going viral on social media platforms and in particular the streamer-oriented subreddit r/LivestreamFail.
Squeex said that while Twitch streamers expect undeserved positive reception from their viewers, they should also be prepared to receive undeserved hate from them. Speaking on the subject, the sprinter compared positive reactions to negative reactions and said:
“You can’t accept one without the other.”
Twitch streamer talks about content creators on the platform reacting to hate threads on social media platforms
Squeex hosted its speed-run livestream earlier today and during the first few moments of its broadcast, the streamer mentioned that he came across a post on Twitter that really irritated him.
A Twitter conversation thread was created by a relatively popular streamer who was apparently complaining about the toxicity and difficulties faced by a content creator on Twitch.
The tweet was the catalyst for the conversation the streamer started with his fans. While there, Squeex mentioned:
“Like there were apparently some hateful comments about them. I was like, I was going to respond but I don’t like fights.”
He continued further saying:
“It was like you were surprised that your audience had the same inclination as you, just not to shut up and say it all. People literally stream for six hours and they’re shocked when people respond. Isn’t it? no ‘isn’t that the whole point?’
“Like, how shocked are you at this? And then also the streamer is so ready to accept undeserved positivity, but when the second there’s undeserved hate, they’re like, ‘Whoa! Holy shit!”
The Twitch streamer went on to say that content creators on the live streaming platform cannot accept positivity without any hate. His take continued further when he mentioned:
“It’s like no no, you can’t accept one without the other. If you’re so willing to accept positivity and all that is unfounded, you have to draw a fucking line. Why are you you so selective with other comments?”
His one-minute rant ended when he said:
“It (the tweet) really drove me crazy. It drove me so crazy!
The Twitch streamer resumed his speedrun and continued streaming for another six hours.
