Twitch is a popular website where people can stream and watch live video game content and other live streams. But recently, the site has been criticized for suspending a Polish streamer named Sideneuke after she hit a dog with her car while live streaming. Sideneuke is known for streaming herself playing video games, and this happened during one of her streams. During the stream, the creator was seen driving down a street in her car and getting close to a group of dogs.
She saw the dogs, but she still looked at her phone as she crossed in front of them. A boy in a yellow jacket is driving his car and checking his phone when all of a sudden he runs over a dog. The car hit the dog, and it looked like it was badly hurt. Sideneuke tried to explain her actions after the accident by saying she didn’t see the dog and wasn’t paying attention to the road at the time.
But people on Twitch and people who care about animal rights didn’t like her reason and said she should be punished for what she did. In response to what happened, Twitch said that Sideneuke’s account had been closed because he had broken their rules. The Twitch community had mixed feelings about this decision. Some users praised Twitch for doing something about animal cruelty, while others said Twitch went too far by suspending the streamer without giving her a chance to explain herself.
The situation makes people wonder what streamers are responsible for when they show live content to their viewers. Even though mistakes are understandable, it is important for streamers to take responsibility for their actions and be held accountable when they hurt other people. Sideneuke was clearly not paying attention to the road while she was driving, which put the dogs and other people in danger.
Also, her attempts to explain what she did after the fact only make things worse and make her look even less responsible. In the future, it will be important for Twitch to keep enforcing its terms of service and holding streamers responsible for what they do. This can include suspending or banning users who hurt animals, as well as taking other steps to encourage responsible behavior on the platform. Streamers should also take it upon themselves to act in a responsible way.
