She seems terrible but also there is a nazi in the White House so I won't give her any percentage of my outrage at this moment in time.
This X's 10000. I don't understand how immature even people my age (Early 30's) can be on Xbox Live and in MMORPG chats. These people wouldn't dare speaking like that in public, yet they are fearless in game. Makes you wonder which personality is their true self...
I think thats what hes getting at, that people are generalizing and colour that opinion for a whole group of people instead of talking about the indivduals that do the bad things. Generalizing a group can bring a bad stigma towards everyone in that group. No sure how much it really affect things for "gamers" overall, but yeah, thats the thing at least.
I never understood why folks such as yourself react this way. I see that comment, chuckle and move along and you feel the need to set the record straight in defense of gamers everywhere? If it didn’t apply to you, you had absolutely nothing to get upset about in the first place. You’d think that poster called you out specifically. In either case, gamers aren’t some downtrodden and oppressed group.
Not that I believe the apology is genuine in the slightest but I do find it amusing when I read these things, there is never actually a plan on how they plan to improve and learn from the incident. No longer saying racist, homophobic or bigoted shit doesn't mean you have learned from your mistake. It means you are now exercising the most basic in decent interactions.
Just laughably bad. What an awful, disgusting creature.I want to apologize for bringing up the story the way that I did when I was 17 when my best friend and I kissed. I was really irresponsible in reflecting on the story without giving the full context. This has raised some red flags and caused people to misjudge the situation. I will make sure to be mindful from this point on that I'm not misunderstood in the future by my poor choice of words. I also want to be clear that I think all sexual assault is wrong and I do not advocate for any acts that are pressured/forced or made uncomfortable for anyone even if the situation may seem innocent.
Why would you think someone who engaged with this shit for years will suddenly become a better person because she got caught? She made up the dumbest excuses "I don't remember saying that, the old runescape days" (about messages that were one month old), and won't get any repercussions regarding her work either.Here's hoping this makes her actually change for the better but man, these apologies all sound the same. Just admit you said horrible shit and you need to be better. Stop acting like you didn't think people would be hurt by it because that's total bs. Twitch needs to do more themselves. At the very east a temp ban for the message to be sent but we know that ain't happening.
I don't know to be honest, I just hope that one of the moments actually hits someone into changing. There's so much negativity and I just don't like thinking people are incapable or unwilling to act better. It can get depressing. In all actuality, you're most likely right and she'll keep doing it, it'll get out again, and nothing will happen because most people won't care enough. I realize that but I just like to think there's a small chance it could happen.Why would you think someone who engaged with this shit for years will suddenly become a better person because she got caught?

Like, what makes you think this will "change" her? She didn't stop being who she is.
Weird. Interesting that she was able to keep this stuff out of her live content. She seems pretty hardcore awful in discord.
Not really, it's representative of their character, and Twitch I believe has policies regarding off-platform image as well.
i follow 2.
It's not tricky at all. Many jobs have the ability to fire you for off site activities if they breach codes of ethics or endanger company image.
Nah that's less of a lie and more of a smart ass "sticks and stones" logic scapegoat. It's her way of diminishing what she said while making it appear as an apology without accountability. Fuck her. They should shut her shit down now. She's not sorry and won't ever be.
