Trainwreck aided in the launch of a new streaming website Kick toward the end of last year, hoped it would revolutionize the live industry by providing better revenue split and greater freedom compared to Twitch and YouTube.
One of the company's investors is the owner of an online casino, leading some to believe it was just another form of advertising gambling. Trainwreck has stood by it, though, and one of the major issues he's trying to address is viewbotting, particularly when it's done by streamers who he claims are promoting "predatory gambling."
Fans believe he's referring to ROSHTEIN, who they claim is a blatant viewbotter due to the fact that he streams Twitch and Kick simultaneously.
Trainwreck said he is uninterested if someone viewsbots who reach 2,000 to 3,000 people, but when it's 15,000 to 20,000 people and the content is promoting a "predatory gambling style," it's a concern that needs to be addressed.
“I don’t like that, so I’m going to actively push to find a solution for it as soon as possible,” he said, particularly since my name is attached to it and because I’m pretty much at this moment the face of it.
So far, he hasn't been able to persuade owners to do something about it. He claims they'll be willing to do so once he discovers "definitive proof" due to "plausible deniability."
Despite his displeasure, he showed no signs of resigning, even if haters believe he's only doing it to "cover himself," or consider it as a bit ironic because he gambles on the stream.
