Twitch streamer Natalia “Alinity” Mogollon is one of the latest female content creators made to deal with stalking and harassment.
Alinity wrote on Twitter that she has filed a harassment report with the police after some fans allegedly decided to show up in-person at her house. Alinity warned her followers that “showing up at a content creator’s house is considered harassment.”
It’s not quite clear who exactly showed up, how they got Alinity’s personal information including her address, or what their intentions were. Alinity said that it was “just a bunch of bored children.” While she is fine, Alinity admitted that she was pretty shaken up at the experience.
Showing up at a content creators house is considered harassment. I do not tolerate this and will be contacting the police and an incident report will be filed.

Most of the responses to Alinity’s tweet were in support of the streamer. Despite her past controversies, few felt she deserved to be harassed in this way. Many called the fans “creepy” and “crazy.” Some even said that showing up at someone’s house in this way should garner a fine.
This is unfortunately nothing new for female streamers. In January, 100 Thieves co-owner Rachel “Valkyrae” Hofstetter was forced to make her Twitter private temporarily due to a “delusional stalker” who kept making hundreds of accounts for the sole purpose of harassing her.
Streamer Ashley “BrookeAB” Bond was also a victim of harassment. The content creator took a break from streaming after dealing with the ongoing harassment and threats. Things escalated to the point that the FBI was even involved in the case. BrookeAB announced at the end of 2020 that she was looking into a program that supports victims of stalking and harassment.
