  • Twitch streamer Alinity’s infamous “dog clip” has generated massive backlash.
  • PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has called for her to be banned from Twitch.
  • Not only is PETA right about Alinity, but they also don’t go far enough.

PETA has called on Twitch to ban controversial streamer Alinity over the now-infamous “dog clip.” It’s not often I find myself on the same side of an issue as PETA, but in this case, they’re absolutely right. Following a series of sketchy videos involving her pets, Alinity must be stopped – and be stopped for good.

Alinity is a game streamer, and a popular one at that. She has roughly 1 million followers on Twitch, thanks in no small part to a series of scandals – weaponizing copyright strikes and alleged animal abuse being her biggest offenses. PETA’s big problem is with the second of those two, obviously.

PETA Is Right About Alinity & Her Infamous ‘Dog Clip’

Clearly Alinity is in the wrong here.

Video footage proves that she harasses her pets in a variety of different ways. Past behavior ranges from throwing or pushing her cats to spitting vodka into their mouths. There are numerous other instances of her causing distress to animals as well, to the point that a compilation video exists online.

The latest issue revolves around a clip of her dog nuzzling an intimate area on her body while she was doing a handstand. After several people bought it up on Twitter, PETA responded by saying they were “well aware” of the “cruelty” and had called for a ban on the controversial Twitch streamer.

PETA wasn’t the first group to say that Alinity’s “dog clip” crossed the line. In fact, many people want Alinity to be removed from Twitch for her behavior. One petition, which was started after a previous animal treatment incident, has more than 50,000 signatures.

The problem is that Twitch seems completely unwilling to do anything about it for some reason.

A Twitch Ban Isn’t Good Enough

Considering the number of times Alinity has appeared to mistreat her pets on camera, a Twitch ban doesn’t seem like enough. Frankly, it strikes me as completely disgusting that she still has pets, let alone a Twitch channel with a million followers.

Alinity should have been banned after the first incident. The fact that she is still partnered with Twitch is a mark against the company, one they shouldn’t allow. This streamer makes the company look terrible, as well as completely biased. Other Twitch streamers have been banned for far less, and yet Alinity remains.

Public perception is important for their brand, and with the threat of Mixer looming over them, they need to put this Alinity scandal in their rearview mirror.
