Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter came to Sykkuno’s rescue after the US sensation received backlash from society over his alleged earnings amid Twitch’s data breaches.
Sykkuno has been a trend on Twitter ever since the leak. However, a good friend and YouTube sensation Valkyrae came to his defense during one of her recent streams.
Here is what she had to say on the subject:
“I just want to say that if you really hate Sykkuno right now for the water bill, it’s on you, okay? Isn’t it obvious that he trolled? He trolled. There are actually people, he’s in trend right now, and people actually think he’s bad bait. ”
She hit on viewers who hated him because of a popular meme in the community. The meme comes from a childhood story where a leak caused the water bill to rise to an exorbitant amount, causing Sykkuno to joke with streaming to try to pay it off.
In addition, Sykkuno told about his earnings during one of his latest streams and revealed how he earns “ten times less money” than he was at the top of his Among Us streams.
The leak suggests that Sykkuno will earn around $ 113,896 in September 2021, which does not take into account the accumulated revenue across other sources.
Several streamers have come forward to reveal how the leaked information is not accurate. Nevertheless, the leak is causing chaos in society.
Valkyrae urges streamers to leave Twitch for YouTube
The last few months have been full of turmoil for the Amazon-owned platform. The latest data breach may be the last straw for streamers as their personal information, including passwords, earnings and other sensitive details, was leaked.
Last month, there was also witnessed a mass exodus where several streamers switched to YouTube Gaming. Twitch also reviewed the #ADayoffTwitch movement, where streamers took a day off the platform to fight hadrazzias.
In the midst of all this drama, Valkyrae revealed how YouTube Gaming wants to sign more streamers. She also revealed how the platform has a lot of room to grow and is a safe place for streamers.
Before ending her stream, Valkyrae reiterated how she does not mind the platform, but the recent leaks and controversies are a matter of great concern and how a switch to YouTube sounds like a good alternative.
