Alinity’s recent emotional breakdown on Twitch, over constant harassment, has led to her receiving support from her peers.

A few days ago, Twitch streamer Alinity (real name Natalia Mogollon) took to the platform to open up about the relentless online harassment she has received and its effect on her well-being.

Alinity has found herself at the centre of controversy a number of times, such as allegations of animal abuse, which she continues to be reminded of.

During the broadcast, she had admitted that the constant harassment made her consider suicide and how she felt that the only way to make people stop would be to quit streaming entirely, as Jenna Marbles did.

Her outburst quickly went viral and many of her peers expressed support for her and called for there be less toxicity within the gaming and streaming communities, especially in the wake of fellow streamer Reckful’s tragic passing, which has been confirmed to be suicide.

Over the weekend, Alinity took to Twitter once again, this time to thank those that supported her and say that she would ‘be better.’

‘But this is all so much bigger than me,’ she added, ‘Please listen to each other. And remember those voices that can no longer speak.’

In a retweet from earlier, she confirmed that she will be appearing on the HealthyGamer Twitch channel later today at 6pm BST, which is dedicated to discussing mental health and has featured other streamers who shared their own experiences.
