Summary

Some streamers who have been highlighted under the new initiative have been experiencing heightened harassment during their PogChamp tenure, and many fans want the live streaming service to be more proactive in its efforts to support these streamers.PogChamp is one of the most popular emotes on the platform, but Twitch removed the original, which was the face of Ryan “Gootecks” Gutierrez, from its service after Gutierrez used social media to incite “further violence” following the attack on Capitol Hill last week. “I did prep my Twitch and Discord moderators about what was probably going to happen, considering I’m a black man who is about to be the face of a global emote Twitch has loved for so long,” Jones told Polygon via Twitter DM.The harassment is over a comment Jones made on stream in explaining “the difference between saying white lives matter and Black Lives Matter,” he said. pic.twitter.com/KWOPPDvSWLSimilarly following Twitch’s implementation of Deere as the new PogChamp, the streamer received a mix of support and harassment, the latter of which includes transphobia.“This ALWAYS happens when Twitch tries to promote inclusion in any sort of fashion,” UTxJGTheDon said.
