There is a difference between people who want to be famous and people who just want to share their passion. ''Famous'' streamers a bit like wannabe celebrities and are people who stream every aspect of their lives and talk about personal stuff in (too much) detail. I'm sure you know the type.Well you can try to look at it from reverse or other side or whatever you want, but to want be "famous" and watched/recognised as much as possible on twitch or elsewhere and at same time to not want being discussed if something goes wrong is just not how it works. If you want attention and to be public person then you take both of it.
What purpose does paparazzi have? Well easy clicks and easy attention. And when public people do some strange stuff they get that attention a lot, so is not like they are not in fault of such things. So as much some people taking it too far, but saying you don't see yourself playing aoe2 forever and aoe4 is great game and then droping aoe4 and starting league and then grinding aoe2 with smurf account and so on....
And all of this in few months period. You can say it's not anyones business, but at same time you have to be either naive or stupid to expect people to not talk about it and mock him about it. Especially that he will be back streaming and he wants to have viewers and followers and subscribers. And it just doesn't happen ever to be only positive energy, it just doesnt. And I was following him and watching quite a bit, so it's not like only haters or people who didn't watch him is talking about it.
I don't see Age streamers being similar, maybe besides the rare hot-tub / swimming pool stream, but even that's very rare.
Anyway, if you care that much feel free but just don't forget to ask yourself how you'd feel if you or a friend were subjected to the same scrutiny. People aren't designed to be ok with having their minor actions picked apart online so do think if its ok to do it even if you can justify doing it.
