Twitch gaming streamer Alinity is finding herself in hot water this week after she was shown throwing her cat live during a game. If you’re unfamiliar with her, Natalia “Alinity” Mogollon has been a content creator since 2012, originally starting with World of Warcraft and then moving on to being a more diverse gamer. Like a lot of people on YouTube, once the ad revenue stopped being as dope, she made the transition over to Twitch. She’s received criticism over the years for using her sexuality to promote her streams, which she’s dismissed since she can actually play, but it hasn’t stopped the “Twitch thot” trolling from following her. But now she has bigger issues to worry about based on a specific stream.
PETA caught wind of this clip you see below, demanding she be thrown off the platform after you can see her throwing her cat out of her lap and over her head during an Apex Legends match.
Take a stand for cats & please remove Alinity from @Twitch immediately. She is using the platform to post animal abuse, which sends a dangerous message to anyone watching her videos. Cats are not props to abuse for more views 🐱pic.twitter.com/EsIsB5o6Tf

It’s not the first time she’s been in hot water over abuse of her cat, either, as this clip is making the rounds again of her giving vodka to her cat.

Twitch has remained silent on the matter so far, but Alinity has issued an apology to her fans about what she did, admitting it was stupid and she has no ill will toward people who are just trying to do the right thing. What do you think about the situation? Should she be kicked off Twitch or given a warning according to the TOS? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Hey everyone, I understand the concern and I am sorry for my lapses in judgement. I shouldnt have gotten frustrated with Milo, but I dropped him on the floor behind my chair. I'm not that strong :P . The Vodka thing was well over a year ago but it was also a stupid thing to do.
