Twitch Streamer Displays ‘Foot-In-Mouth’ Syndrome, Admits To Killing A Dog On Purpose

There’s a reason why seeing canines die on the big or small screen is considered to be the height of tragedy and evil by many people in the U.S., and this is because dogs are the most beloved pets by Americans. In a recent incident, a Twitch streamer made the humongous blunder of announcing to a live audience that she once killed a dog on purpose while working at a veterinary clinic.

Streamer Simone Scott who goes by the name Aqualadora on Twitch made the startling revelation during a guest appearance on another streamer’s account, RajjPatel. Based on a video posted about the incident, Scott seemingly admitted to killing a four-year-old dog that was owned by someone she didn’t like after being asked about the worst thing she has ever done. Her answer would certainly qualify.

Another video revealed even more of the conversation, where Scott said that she did not like the dog that much either before asking to move past the subject. Naturally, the conversation sparked outrage among internet users and now, the streamer is being showered by criticisms, is being doxed, and is receiving death threats.

In response to the reaction from the growing mob of angry users, Scott Tweeted that she was only trolling, Polygon reports. Whether or not this was the case, the streamer made the unfortunate mistake of not making her intent obvious enough.

The community guidelines imposed by Twitch don’t specifically cover this particular incident, though, it does note that anyone who wants to make an inappropriate statement needs to make their intentions clear from the outset. Based on the conversation that took place, it wasn’t clear that she was just joking.

It’s an unfortunate bit of technicality that could have severe ramifications for Scott. This isn’t even touching the potential legal issues that could arise if it was proven that the streamer did indeed commit such an act yet, which is illegal in many ways.
