Sleightlymusical cheating : OfflineTV Drama Revealed: Alleged Cheating Scandal and Reddit Subtweets
On Twitch, fflineTV, a group of incredibly popular streamers and content makers, is coping with a tidal wave of controversy.
Albert “SleightlyMusical” Chang and Lily “LilyPichu” Ki, two members of the band, have been dating for some time.
Sarah “Avocado Peeled” Lee, a fellow musical streamer, has appeared on both of their streams in recent months while at the OfflineTV residence in Beverly Hills and TwitchCon 2019.
“It’s insane how the best of people can turn out to be snakes,” member Imane “Pokimane” Anys tweeted on November 9.
Her 1.4 million Twitter followers were caught off guard and confused by her seemingly random and out of place barb against a person.
Federico “Fedmyster” Gaytan wrote shortly after that he was “sad” over something other than foot pain, and Ki responded with a cryptic “ah.” on Twitter, adding to the mystery.
Fans began to wonder about what was going on, rushing to the OfflineTV Reddit to express their concerns. Ki, Chang, and a few other OfflineTV members were in Japan at the time, making collaboration and the release of an official statement impossible.
Announced on Instagram that she will be returning home early from her trip.
On November 10, after a day of widespread rumours about their favourite streamers, Ki issued her own announcement on Twitter, announcing that she and Chang had broken up.
She also apologised for OfflineTV members’ “subtweeting” and said that people should stop “attacking” them online.
The incident was promptly taken up by the LiveStreamFails Reddit, which is notorious for collecting and debating drama in the influencer community.
Those who were unaware of the situation swiftly took sides, accusing members of OfflineTV of “clout” for tweeting about the matter before it became public and Chang of supposedly cheating on Lee to ruin the relationship.
The comments section was littered with jokes about joining the “Champions Club” and “ForsenCD,” which are memes concerning streamer Guy “DrDisrespect” Beahm, who publicly acknowledged to cheating on his wife.
There is no public evidence of cheating or what occurred in these influencers’ private lives.
Ki’s buddy and streamer Steven “Destiny” Bonnell II wrote in a chat room that the “subtweets” may have irreparably harmed his relationship with OfflineTV users.
“It’s shocking to me that every [OfflineTV] member witnessed someone going through something so painful and used social media to make it about themselves.”
On Twitter, Gaytan apologised publicly, saying that “turning to social media was not the appropriate decision.”
I’d like to apologise on behalf of the OTV + friends group for our rash and emotional reaction to yesterday’s events.
We were all torn and upset for Lily, and turning to social media was not the best course of action. Please keep sending her love throughout this difficult time.
Chang and Lee have both issued apologies apologising for their actions. They express regret for what happened in separate Twitlongers and will be separating themselves from OfflineTV and their community.
