Biggest Streaming Scandals of 2022 – YouTuber ApoRed Turns Insider Mode On

Number 7 In 2022, ApoRed activated Insi Mode – a real bankruptcy procedure that will likely keep the wild YouTuber busy for a few more years. In multiple videos, YouTuber MiiMii revealed more and more of ApoRed’s indecency and revealed extremely personal details. But in the face of his apparent battle, ApoRed doesn’t face up to his responsibilities: He lies like a tooth-puller.

“I’m a millionaire,” ApoRed said in front of a container of bright red clothing, making him the laughingstock of social media and Twitch streamers* of all kinds. In many reactions they still make fun of ApoRed and the strange puppet theater today. ApoRed got the attention it wanted from its opponents* and will likely continue to provide us with outrageous quality content in 2023.

In various other scandals, OrangeMorange and Scurrows made fools of Twitch-Germany fans.

This year, however, things fell apart over a statement regarding EliasN97’s criticism of SPITCH.
