Myth was straightforward in his position, stating that a streamer should be aware of their impact on their audience and vigilant about it.
On May 18, Myth hosted an IRL broadcast in which he discussed hot topics in the livestreaming space. He discussed the ongoing controversy surrounding xQc accepting a sponsored gambling stream, as well as the impact of influencers on their audiences.
When Mizkif stated that everyone has a price at the end of the day, and it is humane to accept huge deals to make money, the former TeamSolo Mid (TSM) member applauded.
Myth added to the co-founder of the One True King‘s (OTK) thoughts, and he was hesitant to speak up, but he did.
He disagreed with the idea that big streamers with large audiences shrug off responsibility and the potential impact of their content on impressionable viewers.
As the conversation came to a close, the Twitch streamer stated emphatically that it is the content creators’ responsibility to accept responsibility for influencing their audience on the platform.
Fans expressed their opinions on streamers setting an example for their viewers and how they influence decisions made by their fans in a reaction thread on r/LivestreamFail, which received over 600 comments.
This isn’t the first time Myth has expressed his dissatisfaction with Twitch streamers and content creators. On Pokimane’s OfflineTV podcast, he and Pokimane discussed how streamers set an example for young audiences.
