“A lot of us on the internet, we get your stalkers, your f*ppers, and your horny teeny-beanies, you know? I worry about safety a lot of the time, and I’m always paranoid about my safety, especially being in the public space,” she said.
She also mentions that she is constantly in fear because you “never know who’s watching,”
and there are people stalking you and “trying to get you.”. In the video, she also admits that
she has received many death threats in the past.
Both of this isn’t the only reasons for her worry, she says personal safety is not the only “hardest part of streaming” there is also “ever-worrying accountant stuff.”
“With streaming, you don’t get an hourly paid wage. It’s literally based off who decides to support you, who subs, who donates,” she said. “All that. That was really difficult for a long time. Luckily I don’t have to deal with that anymore.”
Well, currently she is in a good position financially after signing a deal with YouTube worth $1 million and Valkyrae admits that it has helped me relief from some worries.
