Stalking is a serious issue for female Twitch streamers
Stalkers are a serious issue for streamers, but female streamers have to deal with it on a more common basis. With streamers like BrookeAB skipping TwitchCon due to death threats, and Sweet Anita asking other streamers for help with security, many female streamers have resorted to hiring private security companies and doing everything possible to ensure no one finds out where they live.
As public figures, streamers are different from mainstream celebrities in that streamers engage much more closely with their audience leading to the rise of “parasocial” activity. Whereas trying to interact with Matt Damon might require lots of coordinated effort between PR teams and publicists, streamers are much more involved with their communities.
They often chat and DM with their fans on Twitter, Instagram, and Discord. Unfortunately, this leads to some fans thinking the streamer is personally invested in their lives, and leads to scary situations where fans will travel from all over the world to personally meet the streamer.
We hope Amouranth remains safe and that her stalker is dealt with.
