Sky Williams addresses allegations
Sky has come under fire after people called the streamer out for talking about the claims in a live stream, instead of releasing a statement.
According to the allegations, Sky operated houses where several people were reportedly abused.
He has addressed the allegations in a two-hour Twitch video, however, his followers have called him out for monetising the clip.
Sky originally planned to talk about the claims in a TwitLonger post but he later revealed that he would do that on his Twitch account.

Following the backlash, Sky has said that that the live stream “was a massive mistake” and he will spend a few days away from social media to address the allegations in a “Google Doc”.
He has apologised for the Twitch video, tweeting:
“I still think it’s my duty to release the full and complete statement of the ‘Sky House’ and the activities therein. Nothing will ever justify the pain I’ve caused, but my hope is that it shows you that I am not a monster, though I’ve caused the same pain as one.”
