During his February 21 broadcast, the popular YouTube streamer Steven “Destiny” Bonnell lashed out at Twitch for promoting Nicole “Neekolul” Sanchez. He was opposed to them giving a platform to someone facing domestic abuse charges.

Destiny Shares Thoughts On Twitch's Special ShoutOut To Neekolul

The situation Destiny is referring to happened back in 2021. At the time, Neekolul was sharing the story of her abusive boyfriend, who allegedly tortured her physically, mentally, and emotionally.

This gained a lot of traction and support on the internet, but soon after she went public, records surfaced insinuating that Neekolul might have been the actual perpetrator of the domestic abuse.

After driving all the way to his apartment to confront him at his house, she ended up getting arrested, and he decided to file a restraining order against her.

After some time, even more details emerged, painting her as the real perpetrator, like her being charged with “inflicting corporal injury on Spouse/Cohabitant” and being forced to take anger management classes.

This is a highly sensitive topic, though, and we don't have all the details about the situation, so we're not going to judge on whether she was the real perpetrator or not.

The topic Destiny is addressing has nothing to do with her being the “actual perpetrator”, though. His point is that if it was a man that was in Neekolul's situation then Twitch would have never given him a special shoutout like that.

“Actually, like, legally abusive, domestic abuse f***king charged person is getting a f***king special shoutout from Twitch! Why?! I don't know, that s**t is wild to me, in my personal opinion.”

He admits to being negatively biased against Neekolul, but he seems more upset about Twitch ignoring her being a legally charged domestic abuser.

You could argue that it should be “innocent until proven guilty” but the thing is, she was pretty much convicted, paying a $25,000 bail and sentenced to 6 months of anger management classes.

If you are a victim of domestic abuse or know someone that is, please reach out to somebody! That is not how a relationship is supposed to be! You deserve better! If you need help, you can always call the National Domestic Violence Hotline: Call 1.800.799.SAFE (7233)
