However, 2 of the top 3 females call @YouTubeGaming home. Both @Valkyrae and @usadapekora have seen incredible success while streaming on the platform! pic.twitter.com/D4O1z3wX3M
It may be mentioned that Amouranth and Indiefoxx were among a number of Twitch streamers that received a ban from the platform for their controversial “ASMR meta” streams that contained “sexually suggestive content.”
Despite the Twitch bans and being lambasted by the streaming community at large for her inappropriate and “sexually suggestive content” on her streams, Amouranth has benefitted from the clout that her content has generated.
The rising popularity of streamers like Amouranth does raise a few questions. On one hand, the Twitch community is condemning her content as provocative and harmful but on the other hand, her popularity suggests that a lot of people do like her content.
