Biggest streamer scandals of 2022: YouTuber ApoRed activates Insi mode

Number 7 In 2022, ApoRed activated Insi Mode, a real insolvency procedure that will probably keep the scandalous YouTuber busy for a few more years. In numerous videos, YouTuber MiiMii revealed more and more of ApoRed’s turpitudes and leaked extremely personal data. But faced with his visible struggle, ApoRed doesn’t face his responsibilities: he lies like a toothpick.

“I’m a millionaire,” ApoRed announced over a container of bright red clothing, making him the laughing stock of social media and Twitch streamers* of all kinds. In many reactions, they still make fun of ApoRed and his eccentric puppet theater today. ApoRed has gotten the attention he craved from his detractors* and will likely continue to provide us with quality outrageous content in 2023.

Biggest streamer scandals of 2022: Gamescom brawl between dancing ban, Scurrows and OrangeMorange

Number 6 Gamescom 2022 was an eventful event for fans of video games. But the Cologne video game fair also caused a stir in the world of streaming. No Dancing, OrangeMorange and Scurrows are particularly remembered during this event. During an awkward argument, the three hostile streamers met and the situation escalated. The reason for this was the persistent gambling discussions on Twitch.

On Twitter, YouTube and more, the creator of 7 vs. Wild has come under scrutiny and faced sharp criticism for sexist remarks about him.

A victim of the “cancel culture,” the survival expert released an even more embarrassing statement. Fritz Meinecke corroded against the “ effeminate right-thinking society“and has attracted a new storm of criticism. He said he would lose all of his sponsors if he spoke publicly about the horrible things he was up to. Despite the scandal, the success of 7 vs. Wild is immense, though even Fritz Meinecke has to contend with some complaints about the show’s authenticity.

In various other scandals, OrangeMorange and Scurrows made a fool of themselves with Twitch-Germany fans. Scurrows went after TikTok employees* over Andrew Tate and OrangeMorange was taunted after embarrassing bluster. Despite their heavily criticized actions, the two casino streamers appear to have had rather good luck with the half-word ban on gambling on Twitch.

EliasN97 has come under fire for its SPITCH announcement, claiming the fantasy football app is too close to gambling.

This year, however, things split over a statement about EliasN97’s criticisms of SPITCH.

Despite the shitstorm, EliasN97 has compensated well this year and is among the biggest Twitch streamers of 2022 in Germany.
