While many expressed disappointment at the VTuber’s departure, there was speculation that this could be due to a backlash when she announced she would be streaming. The Hogwarts legacy. In a now-deleted tweet originally posted on February 7, 2023, Pikamee called out those who didn’t want her to play the new one. Harry Potter game, telling them that she “doesn’t support anything in particular” and just wants to play it.

This led to speculation that her decision was due to boycotts and harassment of Twitch streamers for playing “that wizard game”.
