Games And Online Harassment Hotline Puts Together Guide On Handling Twitch Hate Raids

The Games and Online Harassment Hotline is a nonprofit organisation for people in games who are struggling emotionally due to abuse, something all too common online. It has even put together a guide on how to stay safe from hate raids, aiding Twitch streamers who undergo bigotry and abuse in targeted campaigns.

“Hate raids are yet another symptom of the systemically racist, sexist, queerphobic, oppressive culture we live in,” the page opens. “They are a tool used primarily to silence and intimidate streamers, and we have seen how they are unfairly and disproportionately targeted at Black women, queer, and BIPOC streamers.”
