Digital Princxss, aka Marissa Cloutier, went viral on Twitter yesterday as a mugshot of herself and court documents circulated online. The Adult TikToker immediately made all her social media accounts private but released a message on the video-sharing platform.
This is not the first time the Pokemon fanatic has found herself in trouble with the law. Cloutier was sued by gaming giant Nintendo for copyright infringement while using the username Pokeprincxss. That is why she now calls herself "Digital Princxss."
In the viral mugshot and legal documents shared by the Lee County Sheriff's Office, it was stated that Marissa Cloutier was arrested due to child neglect. It was also noted that she was released on the same day.
As the new information began circulating online, fans tried to "cancel" the Twitch streamer for putting a child in danger.
Marissa Cloutier responds to online heat after mugshots go viral
The TikTok star took to the video-sharing platform to share insights regarding the incident. Marissa Cloutier admitted to being arrested but claimed that not everything shared online is true:
"Hi guys, I just wanted to come on here and say I do see your comments. I do see your concerns. I am not trying to hide or avoid the situation. For those of you who know how legal stuff works, legally, I am only allowed to say so much regarding it."
"I know there are a lot of things being posted online, and they are very much out of context and very much untrue. Please do not believe everything that you would read on the internet."
The post ended with her saying that she can't reveal more information regarding the ongoing legal matter. She concluded:
"I can't really say much more. I just want to say thank you so much for those who have supported me and everything like that. Thank you, guys."
Why did Nintendo sue Marissa Cloutier
The streamer had then branded herself as "pokeprincxss," inspired by Nintendo's Pokemon franchise. The adult content creator was also selling merch concerning her new identity.
Nintendo then sued Marissa Cloutier to protect their intellectual property, and they also did not want fans to think the two were collaborating. The company also demanded she hands over the earnings she made out of her merchandise sales.
In October 2020, Marissa Cloutier finally changed her name to Digital Princxss.
