Over on Twitter, Mizkif's update gained quite a lot of traction, with numerous fans weighing in. Twitter user @hiu_jim shared a screenshot of a Discord server and claimed that people were mass reporting the content creator.

"Apparently emailing the advertising sales department is far better than emailing customer service, money talks I guess. Yeah. Gotta find the ad sales people for Paramount, see if they care more about SpongeBob than customer service did. This would be SO funny if TLC starts policing Twitch now that they know about it. Wonder if Hasan and Alinity have any TLC show VODs up still."

Another Twitter user @TTRaichi claimed that Twitch streamer Natalia "Alinity" had been watching similar shows for a long time:
