A bogus DMCA claim was filed against the video.

“So many stupid people in the world,” Ricky Gervais commented on Twitter when it came out last year that popular Twitch streamer Natalia Mogollon, aka Alinity, didn’t hesitate to poorly treat her pets during livestreams, including throwing cats, kicking her dog, and “sharing” a sip of hard liquor with them.

But stupidity is not the whole story here, since this type of conduct generates controversy, and controversy is more likely to help grow, not decrease, the audience on the platform where Mogollon earns her living by playing games and engaging in attention-seeking antics.

The streamer received criticism from women and men alike, but the fact that she had not been banned yet on Amazon’s streaming giant led some male gamers to think this was because of her gender and favoritism from Twitch.

The online drama and mess all this created led to Mogollon defending against her vocal critics by accusing them of targeting her because she is a woman, although the backlash she received seems to be focused on the apparent animal abuse.

This Sunday, YouTuber Daniel Keem of the DramaAlert channel tweeted “Alinity cat’s revenge” and tried posting a video – which got disabled for copyright reasons.

In a subsequent tweet he tagged Mogollon’s Twitter account to ask, “did you just CopySTRIKE my Twitter?”

(The video Keem tried to post shows Alinity’s cat biting her arm.)

If Keem has indeed been hit with Mogollon’s copyright strike, it wouldn’t be the first time she has tried to settle disputes with other online personalities by exploring the possibility of (ab)using digital copyright laws.

In 2018, she was involved in a convoluted back-and-forth with YouTuber PewDiePie, after he insulted her in one of his “Twitch fail” videos, prompting her to turn to a Reddit community and whether she should issue a copyright strike against his channel.

Considering the cat-throwing antics that would surface a year later, PewDiePie said with some foresight that while he didn’t want Alinity banned – “it might be good for her.”
