Kaitlyn Siragusa, also known as Amouranth, spent 14 hours filming on Friday, Aug. 13. This was not her typical day. She is one of the most prolific streamers on Twitch and racks up hours with workmanlike constancy. The unexpected twist came later in the evening when Siragusa noticed a strange glow outside her window. The cause was quickly apparent upon closer inspection. Garbage had burst into flames against her Houston, Texas home’s exterior wall. It was also very close to her car and her assistant’s cars.
Amouranth Although Firefighters
Amouranth Although firefighters were able to arrive before the fire spread, the consequences of the incident are concerning.
Siragusa posted on Twitter about the incident. The Post has seen both video and photos.
In terms of hours watched, Siragusa is the most popular female streamer via Twitch. The second quarter of 2021 saw nearly 13 million viewers watch her stream, almost double the amount of Siragusa. Notoriety and controversy are often linked. This is doubly true for Siragusa who is a female celebrity on a male-dominated platform . Siragusa also likes content that emphasizes her appearance. This sometimes goes against the Twitch rules against sexual content.
She became a Twitch “hot tub meta” face earlier this year. This is where streamers broadcast from inflatable hot tubs, allowing them to wear swimsuits and not be in violation of Twitch’s dress code. Some Twitch viewers have long regarded Siragusa as unworthy of her success due to her stream concept and others over the years. This has led to daily harassment and even “swatting” attempts to harass silver wolf Siragusa. Twitch viewers have made spurious calls to police to request SWAT teams or emergency responders to her house.
Amouranth stated that this was his reality since he tried to stop Kotaku from publishing video game news site Kotaku. “Multiple times weekly.”
She said that streamers should be proactive and talk to the police. They won’t be able to understand but having your location “flagged” can make all the difference in a situation of tension. Literal life and death.
One swatting incident in 2017 led to police shooting and killing a 28-year old man in Wichita (Kansas). Although it can have serious consequences, many people still consider swatting a prank. It is intended to scare people and not to cause harm. The gray area of arson suspects is, however, very clear.
Morgan McCree, Siragusa’s assistant, said that she had been “swatted” a lot, but this was the most extreme. It’s quite rattling to say the worst.
