news culture Obscene montages, harassment on Twitch … Maghla, exhausted, reveals behind the scenes of the life of a streamer
After Amouranth’s shocking revelations about his private life or the speaking out of the German streamer Malhuna considering some viewers as “the dregs of humanity”, it is the turn of French streamers and in particular Maghla to break the silence to pointing out behavior that is as shocking as it is disgusting.
- “I put on a neckline once I take this kind of whack”
- “You only see the tip of the iceberg”
- Washed-out streamers
“I put on a neckline once I take this kind of whack”
Last week, one of the flagship content creators of the Twitch platform Amouranth had made chilling revelations about her job as a streamer and the harassment she suffered from her own husband. Today, back in France, a sudden testimony that points to a constant problem for women on social networks, that of the French streamer Maghla. She is one of the influencers on Twitch with nearly 700,000 followers (about the same number as Stars or MisterMV) and recently got noticed by Yves Saint-Laurent who made her his muse. On Twitter last night, she explains discovering a clip (a short sequence cut directly on her live by a spectator) directly targeting her cleavage:
A behavior of infinite heaviness which served as a straw that broke the camel’s back. In the aftermath, Maghla unrolled a long thread to describe the permanent harassment she undergoes as a streamer. She begins her talk by explaining that she cannot dress as she wants (avoiding crop top or necklines), otherwise it exposes itself to what “people come because I excite them on my lives“what she does not condone‘. In addition, the streamer also points the finger at the comments which declare to her that “you broke through with your body” Where “you wear clothes to attract viewers“, especially if she dares to complain about it. Throughout her testimony, she also evokes the different behaviors that she observes on the whole net (Reddit, Discord servers, private messages, Twitch or even forums) with her person. Sensitive souls refrain :
I’m tired and it’s time for me to explain.
I’ve been streaming for years and open my mouth about 10% max of the problem, because apparently you have to ignore it for it to pass.

“You only see the tip of the iceberg”
Behaviors to freeze the blood, and which can even go further, as evidenced by the streamers Shironamie and AvaMind. They explain having received a call from a supposed delivery man who managed to obtain their personal address and thus harass them. When he forgets to hide his phone number during a call to streamer Shironamie, the tone quickly changes and turns into remarks of extreme violence, accompanied by threats, as this excerpt shows:
PREVENTION MESSAGE 🛑
Today I was live like every day, until I received a call from a stranger, he pretended to be a delivery man and managed to get my address.
Unfortunately for him he did not hide his number.

His business has made streamers react (Étoiles, Kameto, NotaBene or Tonton have supported Maghla) but also streamers who are breaking the silence. Among them, Avamind, Charlie Danger or Baghera Jones which explains why some consider that they “should be aware that it is like that and therefore choose another path if we are not “ready to cash in”“.
And we are silent because, as seen on bcp of qrt of Maghla’s Thread, we should be aware that it is like that and therefore choose another path if we are not “ready to cash in”.
No one should cash in, at any time, and for any excuse this kind of

In any case, the streamers who speak testify to the many channels where these behaviors are observed and all emphasize that it is only “the tip of the iceberg“. The impromptu visits, the many statements that tend to descend on these content creators who have been fighting for years to promote their work or even the horrifying behavior of certain individuals on the Internet… attitudes that have finally washed away the videographers (insomnia, depression, self-depreciation, anxiety or even moving…) who are also fighting these individuals in the field of justice.
Indeed, it is good to remember that cyber harassment is a crime and punishable by law (up to two years in prison and 35,000 euros in fines). Ditto for the threat of crime: the author risks six months’ imprisonment and a fine of 7,500 euros. In the event of blackmail, the author incurs three years’ imprisonment and a fine of 45,000 euros.
