The most viewed hot tub stream of all time on Twitch has to be seen to be believed, but a warning to the wise: it does feature wet socks. Ugh. Proceed with caution. Over the last month, Twitch has been immersed in a hot tub stream controversy where those who partook were vilified for their "inappropriate" content yet their popularity continued to climb in spite of the criticism. The majority of hot tub streamers were women and there were arguments that sitting and chatting while in a swimsuit is unprofessional and unacceptable on the platform. Unsurprisingly, a lot of the detractors were men, including Félix "xQc" Lengyel, one of the biggest names on Twitch. "I'm gonna be honest, this hot tub meta is by far the most pathetic thing we've seen on Twitch in forever. What a sad reality. Please get this trash off the front page," he said of the trend. On the other hand, Kaitlyn "Amouranth" Siragusa defended her hot tub streams, explaining that there are misconceptions that spiral out of control. "There are two re-occurring themes that people go back to - 1) Twitch is for gaming or 2) Twitch is unfair towards male streamers - alternatively, Twitch is more lenient on female streamers," she told Kotaku.
