On the interview podcast on Noodle Shop podcast, Rich, the co-host asked Emiru, reacting to her unsettling experience, saying that YouTube was also a toxic community when it started out but eventually it has become quite sensitive to all the hate and is comparatively better place now. At that stage, Twitch was just starting out and did not have much of a big community hence, hate and insensitivity were not taken care of as there was not much community to raise their voice against it. However, in recent times, Twitch has also evolved with millions of users joining the platform.

In the podcast, Tectone asked what actually happened to Emiru on Twitch. Apparently, back when Emiru was starting out as a streamer on Twitch, she was a 17-year-old high schooler. However, unfortunately, she was under the scrutiny of some of the biggest male streamers on Twitch.


The streamer was found by several male streamers, who were big on Twitch during that time and also were very much older than her in age. According to Emiru, these streamers made some very lewd comments about the 17-year-old streamer, about grooming her and going to prom with her, and looking like her dad.

Emiru said,

“There were like multiple big male streamers that found me that were way older than me like five to ten years older than me. They would make jokes about like grooming me, picking me up from school, like a school bus, and prom jokes like “oh I’m gonna go to prom with her and look like her dad.”

Tectone and Rich were shocked and disgusted after hearing this and could not believe the situation that 17-year-old Emiru went through while just starting out her career. Moreover, Emiru also added that during the course of that period, no one would even care about the male streamers making such comments and jokes about the streamer, which is an even sadder part of the story.

Emiru added, “Some of the biggest streamers on the platform at the time and nobody cared as people would laugh about it. Nobody even cared, like imagine if that happened now like the biggest streamers were talking to a 17-18-year-old girl?”

Tectone and Rich being extremely disgusted and unappreciative of this gesture, said that it is actually awful that female streamers have to go through such things while starting out their careers, especially on platforms as big as Twitch.
