An image of two female Twitch personalities has gone viral, and now one of the streamers says she has received death threats because of it.
The way streamers dress on Twitch has long been a point of contention among viewers, and it may have reached its boiling point shortly in 2020.
Paymoneywubby posted an image of two women, asking if viewers could tell which one is from the adult site Chaturbate and which is from the Amazon-owned platform, before revealing that they are both Twitch streamers.

Although he blocked the faces of both streamers, people were still able to figure out who they were, and ghostgirlxoxx, the woman with the lawyer covering her face, says she was doxed and received death threats. .
“Yeah it’s me left in the picture, thanks to him now I have death threats and someone has found my address,” she tweeted.

Ghostgirl revealed who she was in a response to Wubby’s tweet which also went viral, claiming people only mentioned the Twitch Terms of Service and community guidelines for female streamers.
“It’s funny how when the topic of Twitch’s TOS breakup comes up, it’s just t * ts,” other streamers said. “Never about RAMPANT racism, homophobia, transphobia and other bigotics that actually affect streamers.”
It’s funny when the topic of Twitch’s TOS breaking up is brought up, it’s all about boobs. never on RAMPANT racism, homophobia, transphobia, and other bigots that actually affect streamers.
it’s because you don’t care about TOS, you just hate women and need a way to talk it out loud. https://t.co/EFxqwkpRRt

Three days after Wubby’s initial tweet, another streamer discovered that ghostgirl was the third largest Call of Duty channel on Twitch and posted a screenshot of her to her 22,000+ Twitter followers, asking her why she was watched by so many people.

She says she’s been broadcasting for four years now and at this point it’s not just about the money.
It’s not all that surprising to hear that a big part of being a streamer is connecting with your audience and doing things they love to see.
That said, she concedes that for a lot of people, it’s about the money rather than the fun of interacting with viewers.
I’ve been doing this for 4 years, it’s not just for the money, I play belly dancing games etc. advice … but a lot of people do it for the money

Ghostgirl says she belly dances which is why she broadcasts with an exposed stomach, but she plays a wide variety of games on the platform.
Some of these games include Call of Duty, Outlast, and League of Legends, to name a few.
She has more than 58,000 followers on Twitch, with nearly 3000 won since Wubby’s tweet.
It should be telling for many to see this type of behavior happening to female streamers, especially since this isn’t the first time.
