A few days ago, a small-time Twitch streamer known as "Tessi" was shut down by her father after insulting a cancer patient. She had gotten into an argument with a random girl during her live stream.
Things got heated when Tessi made personal attacks on the girl for wearing a wig due to leukemia. This is what Tessi had to say:
"You're such a loser. Your wig is even falling off. What is it even like having cancer."
Backlash soon followed as people were outraged by the statement and called for her to be canceled.
Tessi's father, Jeremy, took to YouTube to address the issue.
He said that "Tessi" had even livestreamed herself doing drugs in school a few years back. This got her arrested at the time.
Jeremy further explained that his daughter has been to several psychologists and therapists over the years, but it has been futile.
Finally, upon facing backlash from her fans, Jeremy had this to say:
"You know what Mya? You can come after me all you want. I'm an adult. I can deal with it but your sister is a minor. Your sister has had to be front row and center for all your drama.
He then called her out for not acting like an adult and not taking any responsibility for herself.
Tessi claims she's innocent
In a recent live stream, Tessi said that it wasn't her fault and her father was lying. She claims that while packing to leave the house, her father got agitated and behaved aggressively, which forced her to call for help.
Tessi, during her live stream, has this to say:
"Shortly after I booked my hotel, while trying to get an Uber, my dad erupted violently on the phone. My sister was banging on the door to let me know.
Tessi states that she had to then call the cops. Her father had also warned her that there would be consequences for making fun of a cancer patient.
According to Jeremy, Tessi had unwittingly involved her younger sister on the livestream when she had called the cops. Following these incidents, he banned her from returning home.
Tessi also claimed that Jeremy was unemployed, which turned out to be untrue. He goes by the name of Jim West, a successful author and cybersecurity expert with many awards and nominations to show for.
