Well, take a deep breath.
Forbes has already provided a full breakdown of why this rumor probably has no basis in reality, so we won’t be spending too much time clarifying the point. But if you need some quick reasons why this rumor is probably untrue, here are a few:
1) The theory comes from 4chan, which is as unreliable a source as possible,
2) Dr. DisRespect just signed his own multi-year exclusivity deal with Twitch in March and is unlikely to break his contract to join Brime when he could earn $ 10 million a year from Twitch (by Kotaku),
3) Ninja and Shroud, who haven’t announced their future plans, probably won’t rush into joining another fledgling streaming service after what just happened with Mixer, which in 2019 already had more “influence” than Brime right now ,
4) The rumor claims that Spotify, which is supposed to endorse Brime, is owned by Google. This is false
No, things are not looking good for this particular theory.
Brime addressed the rumors on Twitter, saying: “Just because we follow someone doesn’t mean anything. Each streaming service follows people who find it interesting. “
The new streaming service also seemed to suggest that it was a much smaller operation than rumors claim: “We wanted to start small and grow organically. This is happening very fast. “It almost seems Brime was just as shocked by the rumors as the rest of the Internet.
