Overwatch Twitch streamer SVB provides an update on false accusations made against him

On August 12, SVB took to his main Twitter account to provide an update on his absence and stated that he would be taking an indefinite break from Overwatch. The video address started with him saying:

"A Twitter account by the name niaplaysow (Nia plays Overwatch) accused me of grooming and soliciting n*de images from underage girls."

SVB provided in-depth context for the shocking incident and said:

"Now before we go in any further, I should clearly state that these accusations were proven to be false. They were made by a troll account, who then later confessed that the whole thing was a prank and that they simply wanted to show the community how, in their words, cringe it is, and how easily it would cancel anyone."

He continued further by saying that many people tried to cancel him after believing the false allegations:

"To that end, many people did try to cancel me, although I hate the word, and then many people believed the allegations immediately, accusing me of being a p*dophile, calling me names that I care really not to repeat right now. And so, in light of all things being exposed as fake, I just wanted to get my thoughts out."

The Twitch streamer pleaded with the community not to undermine the actual victims, and the address came to an end when SVB said:

"This person simply conducted their hoax and deleted all their social media, never to be seen again, thus dodging all the consequences for their actions. Which is why real women almost never tend not to lie about such things."

He went on to talk about how his situation was different:

"But this was not a real women, this was a fake account, and perhaps what's sad is that no one really bothered to investigate whether this was a fake account or not."

@JakeSucky this is so sick and it makes it so much harder for real victims when they come forward while also putting an innocent person through extreme stress and anxiety, ruining their reputation, and probably severely strained friendships/relationships over it…
