Ibai Llanos criticizes a fan for “donating” more than a million pesos to a streamer
A few days ago, the case of a fan of the streamer Amouranth sent him as a “gift” the amount of 66 thousand euros, a figure that, in Mexican pesos, translates into more than one million pesos.
This occurred after the content creator made it known that she was not having the best of her moments, because, as she stated, she was receiving pressure from her husband to create content.
As a consequence, several of his followers were “concerned about his health and integrity”; however, one of them went even further by sending an anonymous package.
After the case went viral, Ibai Llanos, the most popular on Twitch, did not hesitate to give his opinion and this is what he said in a live broadcast:
“I have always told you: ‘subscribe to a channel only if you can afford it’. Don’t spend money you need on any twitch channel. If you’re going to steal your father’s or grandmother’s card to donate, don’t. Many times we have contacted people who have gifted us a lot of subscriptions to see if they were aware of what they had donated. If you’re a millionaire, that’s fine with me. But not if you really need that money,” he expressed.
