Alinity is the online handle of video game streamer Natalia Mogollon who regularly streams World of Warcraft on Twitch. Since entering the gaming vlog circuit in 2012, she has garnered a large audience on the streaming platform, in part driven by her occasional life-streaming videos unrelated to gaming. In 2018, she feuded with PewDiePie, drawing attention and controversy to her channel.
Mogollon was born January 10th, 1988 in Colombia. Her online handle is taken from World of Warcraft, which is what she usually streams on her channel. She moved to Canada in 2010 and began streaming in 2012. She began posting clips of her streams to YouTube in 2013, starting with some World of Warcraft play throughs (shown below).
In addition to playing video games, Alinity also engages in some life-streaming, in which she shows bits of her various trips and activities. This sometimes includes racy content; one of her most popular videos on YouTube shows her taking "butt prints," in which she rubs paint on her butt and sits on a piece of paper (shown below, left). She also regularly holds "drunk Friday" streams, in which she gets inebriated and streams (example shown below, right).
She has also been open about her history with mental health disorders, including bipolar disorder, depression, and eating disorders (shown below).
Mogollon has over 658,000 followers on Twitch. She also has over 92,000 subscribers on YouTube, 186,000 followers on Instagram, and 68,000 followers on Twitter.
Alinity has been criticized for being a "Twitch thot," a type of streamer criticized by other members of the community for using their sexuality for views. She has appeared in compilations of female Twitch streamers such as one by Toxic Productions that gained over 1.5 million views (shown below, left). She was also included in a list of "Worst Twitch Girls" by YouTuber Pyrocynical (shown below, right).
On May 12th, 2018, PewDiePie uploaded a video in which he tested out eye-tracking functionality, which shows exactly what he is looking at when watching a video. Users submitted female Twitch streamers, and during the stream, he called several streamers "stupid Twitch thots" (shown below).
Alinity responded to this in a stream of her reacting to the video. After PewDiePie says the line, she says she's going to "copystrike" PewDiePie for using some of her content (shown below, left). She later claimed she had successfully used copystrike on PewDiePie with the help of a company called CollabDRM, who files the claims on her behalf (shown below, right) The also claims she makes $700 a month from successful copyright claims.
This drew criticism from many other YouTubers, who argued that Alinity was abusing copyright law with these claims. PewDiePie later responded with a video where he clarified his use of the word "thot" was not meant to offend, but also heavily criticized Alinity's quickness to copystrike and CollabDRM (shown below).
Alinity responded to PewDiePie in a since-deleted Twitter statement claiming sexism in the streaming community (shown below, top). She also posted a video in which she attempted to clear the air about her relationship with CollabDRM, and said what they do is bad (shown below, bottom).
PewDiePie responded by calling Alinity hypocritical, and pointed out several issues about her channel, including admitting on stream that she had committed marriage fraud, saying the N-word on stream, and having nudity on her channel. He also claims Alinity is hypocritical for calling reactions to her "objectifying" when many of her videos seem to use her sexuality for views. Additionally, because of the video where she admits to committing marriage fraud, she claims PewDiePie fans have been reporting her to Canadian immigration to have her deported.
The entire drama has been covered by internet commenters including Scarce and Philip DeFranco.
Trainwreckstv Sexual Harassment Accusations
On November 11th, 2018, Alinity claimed on stream that fellow streamer Tyler Niknam, aka "Trainwreckstv", had sexually harassed and perhaps threatened to rape her. In her stream, she said:
“I mean, I think if a person tells you that they’re going to rape you, that’s something that’s not cool. I don’t think I would ever want to be alone with that guy. I’m terrified of him, honestly. He’s tried to hit me--he’s just been very aggressive toward me.”
The following day, she provided screenshots of Twitter Direct Messages sent to her by Niknam. She wrote to the Daily Dot, “Shortly after I had blocked him on twitter and banned him from my stream (I had enough of the sexual harassment) he made some threat against me that I had better ‘watch out’ at [the] next event and that I should ‘bring extra panties.’”
In a Reddit post, Niknam wrote:
Hey guys, some of you may have heard that a twitch streamer made some serious accusations about me on their stream. They are completely false and I’m devastated that someone would make these baseless claims. I’m not sure if she's just being mean spirited or said that to stir up drama for views, but talking about it on stream or making videos about it will only bring the lies to more people’s attention. At first she claimed this was something that I had said to her, and then later in the VOD she retracts that, and back pedals and states it is something that I typed to her in her chat years ago. The chatlogs prove otherwise, the only thing they show is that she is downright lying.
It's sickening to me that someone can slander me with a smirk on their face like it's no big deal. These types of allegation have ruined innocent people's lives before, and should not be taken lightly or as a joke. I hope she is punished accordingly so people will think twice before trying to ruin somebody's reputation for their own entertainment.
He stated that he had retained an attorney regarding the accusations.
