Seems like someone is starting to have had enough of “entitled” female streamers who continue to act mean if it means to bait more subs.
YouTuber Drew Gooden is here to speak up on behalf of those who believe the same way!
The YouTube star recently called out controversial Twitch stars, such as female streamers like Badbunny and InvaderVie, who is gaining recognition because of their entitled attitude so as to lure in subs.
In a recent upload, he further elaborated why he believes this tactic is considerably disingenuous.
“The quickest way to make people angry is to act as if you’re entitled to their money by merely existing in front of them. Like they should be honored to have the privilege of financially supporting you.”
Revealing a pattern
Over the last months, these particular female streamers on Twitch had gone viral for their vocal disappointment over viewers who aren’t subscribed to them.
Some even dared to call their audience as stingy and “cheapskates”, such as when InvaderVie shamed unsubbed viewers for not supporting her content with merely $5.
“…It doesn’t matter how broke you are. If you have time to watch Twitch, you have ten dollars, truly. If you don’t have ten dollars, you probably don’t have time to watch Twitch, because you should be working.”
To the Twitch starlet, a subscription fee of $5 should be next to nothing if they truly want to support her career in the streaming industry.
“It just simply isn’t. It’s five dollars. It doesn’t cost you that much to sub.”
Fellow streamer BadBunny also had a similar enraged rant episode, where she whined about how she’s technically “working for free” since not receiving a sub or donation in an hour.
“Chat! I haven’t got a donation or a sub for an hour!”
“For an hour?! What the f**k?! An hour when I’m f**king working for free?! What the f**k?!”
She’s also notorious for her viral tirades last year, where she branded her unsubbed viewers as “cheap asses.”
According to Drew Gooden, the complaints of these Twitch stars follow a similar pattern which reveals an undeserved air of entitlement.
First off, the streamers appeal for their community to pay the $5 subscription fee, then they gain traction from their viral rant clips, and enjoy an increase in views, subs, and donations as a result.
Perhaps being a clout chaser on the internet has its own perks, even if it means you have to act entitled and suffer public backlash.
Gooden says in his now-viral video:
“I don’t know, what are you doing with your life—where you have hours of time to watch Twitch and not five dollars to provide for the content you’re watching?”
“Being like ‘I’m broke, I can’t afford to sub.’ That doesn’t really track, what you mean to say is I’m so irresponsible with my money, I can’t support the entertainment that I enjoy.’”
After these streamers are called out by the public, they begin to issue apologies and promise to indulge in self-reflection— which is considerably hypocritical at the very least.
Profiting from attention
This particular attitude goes on like a cycle, according to the YouTuber.
These streamers “do a bad thing” such as begging for subs and gain profit from the viral attention and public outcry, then pull the “victim” card and profit from the viewers who actually feel bad for them now. It comes full circle.
A few users in the comment section seem to agree with Gooden’s sentiments:
“she’s gaslighting her fans so hard omg i can’t imagine being her significant other”
“These girls probably have a “oh you’re homeless? just get a house” mentality smh”
“I like how these people tell their viewers to get a job as they beg for money.”
