Asmongold Offers Take On Vtubing
After being questioned about Veibae’s recent removal from the site, Twitch star Asmongold explained why, against popular assumption, he is a fan of VTubers.
VTubers have risen in popularity on video streaming sites like Twitch, YouTube, and others in recent years. Some of the more well-known VTubers, such as Gawr Gura and Veibae, have large online followings and a strong presence on Twitch. Asmongold has previously expressed his dislike for younger-looking VTubers, but he has recently clarified that he does not despise the entire genre of entertainers.
On April 17th, the 30-year-old streamer was live when he responded to Veibae’s Twitch ban.
Here’s what he stated; “I think the VTuber stuff, I think it’s funny. People got this idea that I hate VTubing. I don’t know where people got this idea, I have no idea. I do not hate VTubing. I think that it’s funny, I think that it’s clever, and I think that it’s a hack for female streamers. Because, they get to go on, and everyone watches them thinking they are this hot girl, meanwhile the girl streamer never has to put on makeup, she’s probably sitting there with her hair up in a bun, hasn’t showered in three days, sitting there wearing sweatpants.”
He then finished his thoughts by stating; “Obviously this is kind of a hack, but nobody is complaining about it!”
Asmon’s dislike for VTubers may stem from his remarks on March 15th, when he remarked that VTubers who appear to be too young are “gross.” Despite this, he expressed his admiration for their work and stated unequivocally that he is a fan.
