Rainbow Six caster Jess no longer streaming Siege after assault threats: “Toxicity is a nightmare”

Rainbow Six Siege caster Jess has quit streaming the game due to rampant toxicity within the community.
Rainbow Six caster Jess no longer streaming Siege after assault threats: “Toxicity is a nightmare”

Rainbow Six Siege caster Jessica “Jess” Bolden has revealed she’ll no longer stream the game due to toxic behaviour from the community. 

The 25-year-old Australian caster has become a prominent voice within the Siege community, commentating various huge events like the Six Invitational and the recent European League 2020 finals. 

In a video on Twitter, Jess announced she’ll be stepping back from streaming Siege for the foreseeable future - despite investing thousands of hours into the title.

“If you’ve been watching me recently, you will have seen that it’s become almost impossible for me to stream in the Oceanic region,” Jess said.

 

 “Toxicity is a nightmare. If you were watching today, I got threatened with severe sexual assault, the n-words were raining left, right and centre.”

She added: “It’s gotten to the point where I can’t play this very easily on stream. It’s very hard to keep it together when every game you either have someone refusing to play the game as a team and inciting a lot of toxic behaviour… it’s become almost impossible for me to stream this game without feeling like it’s just taking a lot of toll on me.”

Jess explained she’ll be looking to stream some other FPS games for the coming week, with the possibility of “jumping in again” in the future.

Fellow commentator Parker “Interro” Mackay replied to the video in support, stating that “streamsniping is at an all time high and toxicity has just exploded” within the Siege community.

 

Siege isn’t the first game to be affected by toxicity and won’t be the last, although we’ll have to see if Ubisoft will look to prioritise the issue over the coming year.
