a civil complaint seeks $25 million in damages from Twitch for content from select female streamers

Self-proclaimed sex addict Erik Estavillo has submitted a formal complaint to court seeking $25 million in damages from Amazon’s Twitch for exposing him to “overly suggestive and sexual content from various female streamers” while using the Twitch platform, according to court documents obtained by Dexerto.

“Twitch has extremely exacerbated his condition by displaying many sexually suggestive women streamers through Twitch’s twisted programming net code,” the civilcomplaint states, “making it nearly impossible for the plaintiff to use Twitch without being exposed to such sexual content.”

Estavillo has previously sued Microsoft, Nintendo, and Blizzard, according to Kotaku.

Per the complaint, Estavillo is following 786 female streamers and 0 male streamers and argues that Twitch doesn’t currently offer a way to filter Twitch channels according to the gender of a particular streamer.

“In addition, Twitch also takes advantage of the plaintiff and many other sexually addicted viewers by allowing them to ‘Subscribe, Donate, or Pay Bits’ to these women streamers,” the complaint argues. “Twitch uses this immediate gratification reward system against their sexually addicted viewers no different than how a Casino would.”

Within the complaint is a list of female streamers that the claim states claims “continues to expose viewers who just want to see people playing video games on Twitch, but instead get exposed to sexually addictive material and content on a consistent and regular basis daily.”

The list includes:

  • Amouranth
  • Quqco
  • ST Peach
  • JadeTheJaguar
  • Pink_Sparkles
  • Valeria7K
  • DanielaAzuage_
  • lilchipmunk
  • iaaras2
  • theRaychul
  • KrystiPryde
  • SonjaShio
  • Gavrilka
  • MizzyRose
  • KayPikeFashion
  • Alinity
  • QTCinderella
  • Pokimane
  • Velvet_7
  • Loserfruit

The complaint calls for the streamers listed to be permanently banned for violating Twitch‘s TOS, and requests $25 million “to be split between the plaintiff and other Twitch Prime Turbo Subscribers,” with any leftover going to various charities.

A spokesperson for Twitch dismissed the legal action as ‘frivolous’ and having ‘absolutely no merit’, according to the Daily Mail.
