Twitch Streamer Alinity Under Fire after Tossing Cat While Playing Apex Legends

Natalia Mogollon, better known by her gamer tag ‘Alinity’ is under investigation after she was reported for throwing her cat during a live stream.

Alinity, a prolific streamer, and gamer, with over 890,000 followers on Twitch and 142,000 subscribers on YouTube has made the news for the wrong reasons after she was seen throwing her cat Milo, off her keyboard while playing Apex Legends.

After the video went viral PETA, took notice of the incident and called on Twitch to immediately ban the streamer saying: “Take a stand for cats and please remove Alinity from @Twitch immediately. She is using the platform to post animal abuse, which sends a dangerous message to anyone watching her stream. Cats are not props to abuse for more views.”

Saskatoon SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) announced that a formal complaint regarding this matter had been filed and an investigation is under way.

This however was not the first time that Mogollon had been called for animal abuse. In the past she was caught on stream feeding Vodka to her cat, as well as kicking her dog for chasing one of the cats.

After the incident Alinity took to Twitter to issue an apology: “Hey everyone, I understand the concern and I am sorry for my lapses in judgment. I shouldn’t have gotten frustrated with Milo, but I dropped him on the floor behind my chair. I’m not that strong 😛  . The Vodka thing was well over a year ago but it was also a stupid thing to do.”

She continued by saying that she is willing to comply with any authority that wants to validate the environment of her pets and that she understands why people are doing this: “I also understand the desire to report me to pet authorities and encourage anyone to do so if they feel pets are being mistreated, by anyone, anywhere. My animals are well loved, and live in a warm and caring home, and I will comply with any authority that seeks to validate this. I think a lot of people are doing this because they believe they are doing the right thing, so no salt. I don’t pretend to be perfect, and I will always try to do better, and improve myself.”

 

The Colombian later posted another tweet a couple of days later saying that she, herself had contacted Saskatoon SPCA to come and check on her pets and the house.

“Called the @SaskatoonSPCA to come check these guys and the home out to clear up the complaints. They’ll be here in a couple days.”

Whether she is banned or not the streamer has decided to take a break from Twitch ever since the controversial video went viral.
