Phantomsfx, a partnered Twitch streamer, has been accused of multiple accounts of rape by Twitter user @b1inkx. This comes as a wave of allegations are being made in the industry by a number of professionals involved.
Following the developing movement of ousting abusive men from the video game industry, @b1inkx has spoken about the abuse she suffered during her relationship with Phantomsfx, a partnered Twtich streamer. The two met at i57 in 2016. It was her first event attendance as a streamer.
Liz, the Twitter user in question, began her TwitLonger post on the allegations with the following:
My story pertains mainly to the relationship I had with Phantomsfx, a UK partnered streamer who I was in a relationship with throughout 2016. But it also involves his best friend HeyOrbz, JustJamieHDG and many other prominent streamers, industry professionals and discords in the UK throughout the course of the 5-6 years that they’ve preyed on vulnerable women in the industry.
What breaks my heart is all these women knew who I was speaking about before I even gave any details. These girls were the ones I thought wouldn’t believe me because of how much he villanised them. He had one of them block me, he labelled one as a ‘another dumb e-girl’ and the other an ‘unstable psychopath’, yet we’ve all got the same story.
