Streamer Fran Completely Quits Twitch And Overwatch Amid Nft Backlash
Overwatch Twitch anchor and Toronto Defiance member Francine Fran Waugh has announced that she will no longer be able to stream or play her most well-known game. In the post, FRAN stated that he will no longer stream or play Overwatch.
Check out her comments below as discusses the difficulties of streaming.
“I was harassed almost every single day since my franplayshalo days, whether it be a creepy comment to full-on nonconsensual pictures in my DMs. I was constantly scrutinized for the way I looked and it caused massive insecurities and low self-esteem in myself. The extreme loneliness and unhealthy habits I’ve developed from streaming caused an abundance of harm. And don’t get me started on the bullying. My entire self-worth was dependent on likes and numbers. I wish to never have to experience that again.”
She continues, “I mentioned before on stream that I was moving home to take care of my parents, particularly my father who had a stroke and subsequent seizures, and I did/am doing exactly that. In last few months I have been much happier and repaired my relationship with my family, who I had abandoned the last five years to ‘go play video games for a living.'”
Answering the questions “Will I play Overwatch ever again? Probably not, and Overwatch 2 won’t change my mind. Will I ever stream again? Probably not,” she concludes, “I would like to close this chapter of my life and move on.”
For now at least it seems as though we will no longer see Fran streaming Overwatch again.
