Twitch streamers Amouranth and ‘BrookeAB’ open up about their experiences with stalkers – Amouranth and her fellow streamer BrookeAB open up about their terrifying experiences of falling victim to online stalkers. Despite their innumerable efforts to protect themselves from the stalkers, they fail at it.
In reference to her personal security, Amouranth once said, “I don’t know what else to do at this point, besides build a moat with crocodiles.” She added this statement to describe the breach of her privacy that occurs often, even after the successful installation of CCTV cameras, hiring personal bodyguards, and constantly sharing the knowledge of the stalkers with police.
She once delineated about one of her crazy obsessed fans while speaking to The New York Times who almost sold all his possessions to find her. This goes way more extreme than expected. Amouranth shares more about such experiences that happened throughout May-July 2022.

Stalking is indeed a growing serious issue that is very difficult to curb. Despite the fact that millions of ordinary people with female celebrities fall prey to it, there are hardly any strict measures from the side of government to put an end to it. Female stars from across the streaming platforms have shared their horrifying ordeals with obsessed fans. Other streamers like DizzyKitten, BrookeAB, and Max Gonzalez have also suffered from the same situation.
100 Thieves streamer BrookeAB also spoke about her experience dealing with a harasser who doxxed her online and due to whom she had to cancel her trip to Coachella after the harassers threatened to “set her house on fire.”
The same happened to another twitch creator DizzyKitten who mentioned a stalker managed to track down her home address after professing his love for her. She subsequently “barricaded” herself in a room with a gun.
Although different streaming platforms claim to come up with some protection measures to solve the issue has no clue about their way ahead. Brooke, a twitch streamer also believes that they “have no clue of what to do.”
However, Amouranth added that she can’t change her career for disgusting people, and sadly a part of such experiences comes “with the territory” of being a woman online.
