It's kinda like Harry Potter's invisibility cloak, except it helps make criticism invisible
For the record, hadn't seen anything on that subject until today so I have no idea what has transpired, but apparently quite a few streamers were very upset with the people running Mixer over alleged discrimination within the company operations. A lot of speculation that shutting down Mixer is related but who knows.
And before anyone tries to start an argument, Mixer responded on Twitter acknowledging they effed up.
A higher-up at Mixer referred to their streamers as slaves and that they were the master, so pretty serious stuff. I don’t think this was the sole reason for the Mixer shutdown, but it helped. Not the kind of press that Microsoft wants right before next-gen launch...
