Popular streamer Natalia “Alinity” Mogollon has been continuously under fire for questionable behavior involving her pets, but she seemed to reach a breaking point when Tyler “Ninja” Blevins brought the issue up in a recent Twitter beef.
On a July 2 stream, Alinity revealed that the constant hate she’s been receiving has taken a toll on her mental health.
“The shit you guys say really affects people, okay? You guys have no idea how many times I’ve wanted to kill myself,” Alinity admitted.
She went on to say that bullying is “serious” and that they can’t continue to send hate towards her without it having an effect on her, or anyone else who receives the same treatment.
While her tearful admission made many followers question their past statements towards the streamer, others wrote on her broadcast’s chat and told her to admit she “made a mistake.”
“I have! I have! Chat, do I really have to read thousands and thousands of messages a day of the mistakes I’ve made in my past? Is that really what I have to do? You can’t just say ignore the trolls!” Alinity shouted in response.
She condemned her viewers for participating in “cancel culture” and said that if she did ultimately quit streaming they’d just find someone else to bully.
To show support for Alinity, Ninja deleted his recent tweet calling her out for abusing her cats. He also apologized for contributing to toxicity online.

In return, Alinity apologized for calling him toxic.
Two days after her emotional stream, Alinity sent out a tweet thanking the community for supporting her. She also vowed to “be better,” but didn’t specify what exactly that entailed.
The amount of support is incredible, it’s impossible to thank everyone so I hope saying it here is good enough. Thank you. I will be better.
But this is all so much bigger than me. Please listen to each other. And remember those voices that can no longer speak.
