QTCinderella Addresses Deepfake Controversy

Twitch streamer Blaire “QTCinderella” spoke to the community about the deepfake topic during a brief livestream on January 31. She said she had chosen to go live on the platform in order to demonstrate what “pain” actually looked like.

The 28-year-old started crying as she said it was “exhausting” to see women “constantly exploited and objectified.” Then, QTCinderella declared that she will file a lawsuit against the streamer deepfake website: “To the person that made that website, I’m going to f***king sue you! I promise you! With every part of my soul, I’m going to f***king sue you! That’s all I have to say. I know I shouldn’t have gone live, but I couldn’t do it. I’m so exhausted and I think you guys need to know what pain looks like! Because this is it!” 

QTCinderella began the streamer’s broadcast on January 31 by calling going live on her channel “probably the stupidest thing” she has ever done. She remarked: “This is probably the stupidest thing I’ve ever done. Genuinely. Probably. And I’m sure everyone in the world would tell me not to go live right now. I’m sure everyone. I’m genuinely like, I don’t even want to look at my phone. I’m sure everyone would.” 

This was explained by Blaire, who also criticized the internet by saying: “I wanted to go live because this is what pain looks like. This is what it looks like! Okay? This is what it looks like. F**k the f***king internet. F**k the constant exploitation and objectification of women. It’s exhausting! F**k Atrioc for showing it to thousands of people. F**k the people DMing me pictures of myself from that website. F**k you all! This is what it looks like. This is what the pain looks like. Okay?” 

The streamer explained what she believed to be a significant “problem” after a brief pause: “If you are able to look at women who are not selling themselves or benefitting off of being seen s*xually, they’re not benefitting, they’re not selling it, they’re not platforming it themselves. If you’re able to look at that, you are the problem. You see women as an object. You should not be okay doing that.”

QTCinderella continued by saying that it shouldn’t be “part of her job:” to have to pay to have explicit content removed. “That should not be a part of my job to have to pay money to get this stuff taken down. It should not be a part of my job to be harassed. To see pictures of me ‘n*de’ spread around. It should not be something that is found on the internet. That shouldn’t be a part of my job! And the fact that it is, is exhausting.” 

QTCinderella said at the end of the speech that she will be suing the deepfake website: “This is what it looks like to feel violated. This is what it looks like to feel taken advantage of. This is what it looks like to see yourself naked against your will. Being spread all over the internet. This is what it looks like. That’s it. That’s all I have to say.”
