Alinity Divine apologises for throwing her cat during a Twitch stream

Here’s the catch when it comes to cultivating a cult of personality through streaming: Everything you do will live on forever in infamy, whether it be picking your nose during a stream or dropping the kind of language that you’d never want your mom to see you using. Here’s a prime example of fame creating infamy: Alinity Divine or Natalia Mogollon to her parents, created a buzz online when her cat came to her for some love during a round of Apex Legends and she instead threw the furry fella behind her so that she could carry on playing.

The clip was recorded, shared online and went viral within hours as everyone called for her head. Naturally this led to that one organisation that is known for killing more animals than they actually save and who are constantly looking for 15 seconds of fame (Their organisation name rhymes with Steep Hill for the Clerical heating of flammables) decided to throw their hat into the outrage ring and demand that Mogollon be removed from Twitch.

It’s not the first time that Mogollon has been in the crosshairs for a stunning disregard of how not to treat a cat, as a previous clip from a while back saw her give her cat a taste of Vodka from her mouth. Busted and with plenty of hate thrown her way, Mogollon took to Twitter to issue an apology:

Here’s the thing: I don’t believe that Mogollon’s actions were done for teh clickz. Were these actions dumb, irresponsible and mind-bogglingly stupid to do even in the heat of a round of Apex Legends? One hundred percent yes they were, and her actions have resulted in the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals being petitioned to inspect her home, while random internet strangers have also allegedly popped up to harass her.

Mogollon, to her credit, is more than open to allowing animal authorities to enter and inspect her home. Meanwhile, Twitch’s director of creative development, Marcus “djWHEAT” Graham hypothetically suggested that Mogollon be suspended for a month and be given a 90 day probation period as well, if he had the power to do so. Which is like a hundred Dr Disrespect slaps on the wrist in comparison.

Anyway, long story short: Mogollon messed up, realised the error of her ways and is dealing with the consequences of her actions while promising to change for the better. Milo the cat is still okay, and probably still loves Mogollon because cats are awesome like that and we don’t deserve them. PETA can still get fucked

  1. I find it rather sad that the outrage over this is worse than the outrage over DrDisrespects blatant disregard for privacy in a public BATHROOM. Like, it’s a shitty thing to throw a cat, no doubt. Cats deserve way better and nobody should be doing that. But it’s fucking illegal to show people’s private bits, and it’s illegal in many places to even live stream someone on the street WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT.

    Fuck sakes.

      At least the humans can make a fuss to the authorities about being filmed and fight for their own rights to privacy. Animals being abused can’t.

      I’ve seen the depths of hell some animals go through by being mistreated. This shit is 1: Not on and 2: Has nothing to do with Doc, nor should it have any emphasis on her Twitch. This counts as abuse, plain and simple.

      Getting banned on Twitch should be the least of her (and everyone else’s for that matter), worries in this situation. She should be charged. If I push someone down a flight of stairs, I get nailed for Assault at the very least. If I throw my Girlfriend down a hallway because she got in my way, on video, what would you say to that? How is this situation any different? Accident or not.

        The cat would’ve landed on its feet and been fine, just a bit annoyed. She wasn’t beating the thing with a whip (which would’ve validated the level of outrage that exists over this). But how would you feel if you’re taking a piss and someone just waltzed into the bathroom with a camera pointed right at you? Violated? Angry? It’s against the law. And he should have been charged. Twitch has nothing to do with that. My statement as a whole has nothing to do with Twitch’s reaction, which I think is proportionate. That guy’s tweet is way out of whack though.

        Do I condone her throwing a cat? No. It’s not on. I said as much. What I don’t get is how much WORSE the public outrage is over this, when the cat’s just fine and a little annoyed, vs something that’s a blatant invasion of privacy and very much illegal. The public outcry is way out of balance. Do I think we should just let her do it? No. There should be voices speaking out about this, 100%. Just the extent of it is completely flipped around. It’s out of whack. The reaction itself is worse than the act of throwing a cat. I mean come on, people have been rocking up at her neighbours house. How fucking scary is that?

          The whole pitching up to her house/neighborhood thing is scary as F! Sure, call animal control on her if you want, but someone pitching up there is obviously up to no good!

            Yeah exactly that. Be proportionate, really. That’s what’s so sad about this whole thing. Way out of whack.

      Provisionally agreed. Still need to see how she threw the cat myself though before the agreement is ratified or nullified 🙂

    I would need to see how she threw the cat. As an animal person I do not condone animal abuse, but one surely can toss a cat sometimes without it being abuse given how agile those mofo’s can be! A gentle “get out of the way” toss is standard fare for cats. A “GTFO” toss against a wall or something is abuse. I need to see the evidence to make up my mind, but alas IT policies.

    Throwing a pet: Uncool
    Would cat get hurt: Thankfully no. They are super agile and jump from higher. Amazing creatures actually in that regard
    Stalking someone and rocking up at their house?: What? Like seriously? Just report to relevant authorities and let them handle it legally.

      It’s all those cat lovers. They made like a cat and stalked the shit out of her.

        Not your best work man. I’ve heard better attempts at wordplay from you.

        5/10. But we all get that you aren’t purrfect.

          Wasn’t really an attempt at wordplay. Rather attribution of characteristics – commonly called catural appropriation.

    I think the main reason for the uproar is because two other (male) streamers were recently banned for mistreating pets. One of which actually just showed a video clip of a cat being thrown.

    This is like a 2 sided story.

    But maybe the actual blame should be on Twitch for allowing her to get away with all the other stuff in the past.
    Now when it finally comes to punishment time, they have no idea what to do and the community is screaming “BURN THE WITCH”.

    The word “sorry” does not appear once once in this entire page.

    From the headlines this story has made I honestly expected that she threw that cat across the room like a baseball… I don’t condone what she did, however anyone that has ever owned a cat would know that the only injury that cat would have suffered is a bruised ego which would have lasted no more than 2 minutes…

    Warning: it is about as traumatic as a cat falling off a backrest of a couch
