. Last updated: 08/02/2022


Warzone streamer Nadia has taken a stand against sexist viewers who took a video she posted recently and added a misogynistic and demeaning twist to it.

Nadia is quickly becoming one of the most popular Warzone players on Twitch, YouTube and TikTok. In July 2022, she found herself ranked #13 in the top 50 Warzone streamers on Twitch. In June, she was ranked number 62, which means that climbed almost 50 points in a single month.

Part of Nadia’s growing popularity is that she’s a veteran Warzone competitor. Her streams consist of her getting many wins and competing against multiple opponents at the same time. She is particularly popular on TikTok, where she now has over 750,000 followers.

Their videos typically consist of getting a certain number of kills or wins per stream. And while many of her fans love how empowered she is and how proud she is as a female player, some viewers instead seek to spread hate and sexism.

One of Nadia’s recent TikTok clips showed an impressive gameplay where she managed to kill multiple opponents thanks to some quick shots and quick maneuvers. However, in response to this clip, a user decided to change the gameplay footage to a game simulation where someone is washing dishes.

One of Nadia’s recent TikTok clips showed an impressive gameplay where she managed to kill multiple opponents using fast shooting and quick maneuvers. In response to this clip, a user decided to change the gameplay footage to a game simulation where someone is washing dishes.

Members of the gaming community have reacted to support the Warzone streamer against these sexist viewers and to raise awareness of the bigotry that many women in the video game industry still face. Jake Lucky shared the clip and stressed how sad it is to experience “what it’s like to be a woman in gaming”.

However, many in Lucky’s comments section felt that the video wasn’t overly harmful. Some tried to defend it as a simple joke and that people, especially women in the gaming industry, are overly sensitive to these types of comments.

“It’s supposed to be a joke,” replied one Twitter user. “Snowflakes everywhere,” replied another.

Of course, it is well known and has been documented by many popular streamers that sexism and misogyny are rampant in the video game community. Pokimane has spoken out about her negative experiences with sexist viewers on numerous occasions, and many others have followed suit.

Nadia herself has since replied to the video, who expresses her gratitude to those who “reached out their hand” and “continued to support” her. She then shared a message with other female streamers and game content creators.

“We can’t let this kind of misogynistic hatred get the better of us women,” she began. “I will never give up what I love to do and no one should do that. We continue.”
