FerociouslySteph comments "were taken out of context", first Twitch council meeting soon

FerociouslySteph says her comments were taken out of context and sensationalized ahead of first Twitch Safety Advisory Council meeting.
Steph Loer, also known as FerociouslySteph, has seen some massive backlash from the gaming community, and Twitch streamers. In case you've been living under a rock, she was bombarded with negativity due to her views on voice chat, followed by responding to the backlash by saying some gamers should be afraid of her, to later admit she has "no power".

With the first Twitch Safety Advisory Council meeting taking place today, FerociouslyStepth has some comments on the recent drama.

FerociouslyStepth took to Twitter to address her recent comments and the backlash which ensued from members of the Twitch and gaming communities.

This comes just before the first Twitch Safety Advisory Council meeting, which takes place today, 20th May 2020.

She explained how her comments "were taken out of context and sensationalized", and how these comments do not represent her role at Twitch.



FerociouslyStepth continued: "I'm empowered to have a voice, a platform, and a community despite a deluge of harassment. I can exist and will continue to."



As we explained recently about the Twitch Safety Advisory Council, the members are tasked with providing their  "experience, expertise, and belief" to help "inform and guide decisions made at Twitch" with a goal to "promote the safety and well-being" of everyone on the platform.



It remains to be seen what will come out of the first Twitch Safety Advisory Council meeting. 

Did gamers and publications take the FerociouslySteph comments out of context, or misunderstood what she meant? Is this a bit of damage control before the first Twitch council meeting? That's not for us to decide.

From comments on her recent tweets, it seems there are both fans supporting her, and others continuing to bombard her with clips, which she claims are taken out of context.
