Twitch Takes Away Most Popular Hot Tub Streamer’s Ability To Make Money From Ads

Very unfair.

Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa is one of the most popular female streamers on Twitch, although she’s run into plenty of trouble on the platform before for ‘accidentally’ streaming NSFW content.

Well it looks like she’s in Twitch’s bad books again after the platform this week restricted her ability to make money from ads, which sucks for her because she’s been drawing a massive audience doing the “hot-tub meta” –  in which swimsuit-clad streamers talk to their chats, play games, and perform other activities from hot tubs.

Despite telling gamer site Kotaku that hot tub streaming was not against the rules, it seems Twitch has changed its stance where Sigarusa is concerned, as she explained on Twitter earlier:

Some commenters begged to differ as far as the “not breaking terms of service” part of her Tweet was concerned…

Welp, maybe she could be a little more careful there, but it is kinda lame that Twitch don’t let one of their biggest streamers know specifically what she did wrong, if images like that are indeed the reason. The good news for Amouranth is that Twitch ads aren’t the only way she makes money from her online presence, but you can bet it makes up a pretty sizeable part of it.

Is the fact she gets a little NSFW now and again even that much of an issue? It’s 2021 – if adolescent boys are watching gamer girls in hot tubs rather than the ridiculous number of genuinely brain-altering hardcore porn that’s available just one click away, then shouldn’t that be considered a good thing? Now instead of wanking off to girls like Amouranth on Twitch they’ll head over to Pornhub and watch something way more NSFW than she could ever get away with. Come on Twitch – let Amouranth get paid. It’s just a bit of harmless fun!

For the (male) gamer who didn’t realise he was livestreaming and ended up having a wank in front of the world, click HERE. Mortifying.
