Mutahar Defends Colleagues' Shift to Kick Amidst Morality Debate Over Gambling Content
Mutahar weighs in on Twitch vs. Kick debate amidst high-profile streamer moves, arguing the morality debate applies only to gambling-related content.

In the wake of a series of high-profile streamer moves and the ensuing debates, YouTuber Mutahar weighs in on the Kick versus Twitch controversy. The influential streamer tweeted his stance on the matter, arguing that the moral debate surrounding Kick and Twitch should apply only to those streamers who actively promote gambling content.

The comment comes amidst a tide of events that are reshaping the streaming industry. Notably, this includes popular streamer xQc signing an unprecedented $100 million contract with Kick, a platform that has been under fire for its alleged role in promoting gambling behavior. The move was followed by Dr Disrespect's teasing of a potential move to Kick for a $50 million deal.

Mutahar's perspective brings a different lens to the issue. According to him, the morality debate becomes irrelevant if streamers moving to Kick are maintaining their regular non-gambling content, despite the platform's affiliations. This puts the spotlight back on the individual streamer's content choices rather than the platform they choose to use.

In light of these unfolding developments, streamers like Cloakzy have made the move to both YouTube and Kick after the end of their exclusive Twitch contracts. These streamers appear to be aligning with Mutahar's viewpoint by simply carrying on with their regular content on the new platform.

However, the debates continue to rage on as Twitch streamers like HasanAbi and Asmongold voice their concerns over the mass migration to Kick. Both raised points regarding the changes in attitude among their peers and the moral implications of such moves.

The streaming community continues to watch these developments closely as more top streamers consider their options and the potential impact on their content and audiences. The complex interplay of platform choice, individual content, and perceived morality remains a hot topic. It underscores the changing dynamics in an industry where the lines between entertainment, business deals, and ethical considerations continue to blur.
