Twitch star Jinnytty broke down in a recent stream as viewers persistently requested for her to “take her clothes off.”
Jinny found fame in the Just Chatting category on the platform, where she spends her streams talking to her chat.
But when viewers started asking her to show more of her skin in a cosplay outfit, the starlet couldn’t help but cry foul.
Final Fantasy cosplay
The incident happened when Jinny was doing a Final Fantasy cosplay. She intricately prepared the cosplay attire for her Twitch audience.
But as more people tuned in to check out the broadcast, some requests got out of hand.
Viewers started asking Jinny to show “more” of her skin, which made the streamer uncomfortable.
At some point, she had no choice but to take a break and let Esfand take over and handle the stream.
Taking a stand
Esfand wasted no time but to take a stand in support of Jinny and other cosplaying streamers.
He also urged the chat not to bully Jinny or other streamers into doing things they are uncomfortable doing— in this case, showing more skin to appease the crowd.
“It’s cosplay… It’s art. You do the art however you want to do it. It don’t matter. I swear to God you guys have problems.”
Break down on stream
Shortly after, Jinny came back into the stream with visible tears after sobbing. She also decided to end the stream one hour earlier than scheduled because she felt her chat was “humiliating.”
“I’m not comfortable wearing something that is too exposing or revealing. You guys already know that I don’t like showing myself too much on stream.”
“I was already doing this [dressing lightly], and then you guys were basically telling me to ‘show more’, ‘take the clothes off’. Why do you say that? It’s so humiliating.”
Apparently, this is not the first time for Jinny to deal with online trolls on her chat.
She has been successful in letting it go a couple of times in the past but this time, the Twitch streamer decided to take a stand.
“You guys say a lot of stuff, and troll me, and I don’t feel sh*t. However, this time, I don’t know why, but I tried to cosplay for stream, and I felt like so many people were telling me to just take more clothes off. I’m not your stripper dude.”
Her chat shifted to flood messages of support. While Jinny didn’t want to end the stream in such a bad way, she asked her viewers to be more careful of the words they throw in the future.
“I’m just going to go rest. I’m going to turn off the stream. I don’t mind simps, but there is something that cannot be crossed. Just because I accept your jokes and everything doesn’t mean you can cross the line and say all these things.”
May this be a reminder to fans that streamers have feelings too. They deal with lots of things on the daily, just like an average person does.
And just because they’re public streamers doesn’t mean they don’t deserve respect. Respect goes both ways when it comes to streamer-fan relationships.
