Twitch star Asmongold explained why he’s actually a fan of VTubers, despite widely believing he doesn’t like them, after being asked about Veibae’s recent ban from the platform.
In recent years, VTubers have exploded in popularity on video streaming sites like Twitch, YouTube, and others.
Some of the more well-known VTubers, like Gawr Gura and Veibae, have amassed huge followings online and have a significant presence on Twitch.
Asmongold has spoken briefly in the past about his dislike of younger-looking VTubers, but now he’s clarified that he doesn’t completely reject the entertainer genre.
Asmongold praises VTubers after Veibae ban
The 30-year-old streamer was there live on April 17 as he responded to Veibae’s Twitch ban.
“I think the VTuber stuff, I find it funny. People got the idea that I hate VTubing. I don’t know where people get this idea from, I have no idea. I don’t hate VTubing. I think it’s funny, I think it’s clever, and I think it’s a hack for female streamers,” Asmongold said.
The OTK streamer continued, “Because they can keep going and everyone watching them thinking they’re this hot girl, meanwhile the girl streamer never needs to wear makeup, she’s probably sitting with her hair in a bun da, didn’t ‘haven’t showered in three days and was sitting there wearing sweatpants.”
He finished his thoughts on VTubing saying, “Obviously this is some kind of hack, but nobody’s complaining about it!”
Asmon’s perceived dislike for VTubers may stem from his comments on March 15, when he said VTubers who look too young are “gross.”
Nonetheless, he did show his appreciation for their craft and made it clear that he is indeed a fan.
