Kaceytron is part of the growing number of women in the online gambling industry. She has been streaming on the popular online gaming platform Twitch since March 2013. Kaceytron definitely has enough to entertain her viewers in terms of interaction, wit, and humor. In addition to the nerdy look that her ubiquitous glasses give her, the gamer’s most striking physical characteristic is that she likes to show cleavage in her streams. This had earned her the nickname “the titty streamer”, a name she has adopted over the years. It’s a small miracle that her Twitch account is only meant for a more mature audience.
Maybe this is inexcusable who she is, or maybe it’s just a trick to get people to stay on her channel, in order to eventually increase her following. But one thing is for sure: Kaceytron can be summed up in three words: spectacled, entertaining, and cheeky.
Who Is Kaceytron? Is she a troll?
Before her electricity became famous, Kaceytron, whose real name is Kacey Caviness, was employed as a store manager by the Earthbound Trading Company, a store located on the outskirts of Kansas City. Kacey Caviness had two younger siblings, a sister, and an autistic brother. Her mother’s constant struggle with drug addiction caused Kacey and her siblings to move in with her grandmother when she was just five years old.
While living at her grandmother’s house, she spent much of her childhood playing on her grandmother’s computer. She played everything from Donkey Kong Country to Diablo 2, Starcraft, and World of Warcraft. After moving out of her grandmother’s house when she was 17, she tried a few college classes in training, but nothing stuck. She spent this time of her life working in various retail jobs in places like Claire’s, Gap, and Delia’s.
In 2013, she started her twitch career with World of Warcraft, a game she had been playing since 2004. From the beginning, she was known for her liberal use of swear words in her comments and for her jokes during the game, often praising herself when a move she was trying to make went wrong. She was also beaten for using her breasts to get views and donations. This actually spurred Kaceytron on because she realized that humans care so much about such things. Over the next few years, she gradually dropped the clip, increasing both her audience and the number of Trolls in her channel.
Kaceytron’s audience and the larger online game streaming industry is polarized about what she does and whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing. A simple search on Google provides enough information about the controversial player, usually followed by comments from everyone from feminist supporters to stubborn haters. Where Kaceytron is concerned – whose real name is Kacey Caviness – there is hardly a neutral opinion.
Kacey’s ability to use her body and fancy personality to attract donations of twitching streamers and expand her audience has been praised by many. This group of people considers it a brilliant move on their part to engage in sexism for their own benefit, with the argument that people would most likely objectify her either way. However, people on the other side of the divide say that she is a fake streamer and that she uses her body and cheeky talk to distract people from her lack of talent. This, they say, is reflected in the fact that she almost always loses in all of her games and still has a growing audience.
Kaceytron, who has played games like SOMA and League of Legends, can occasionally be seen in her streams talking about how she is better than all the other female players. She has also berated many other female players and social media personalities such as Sodapoppin and Kneecoleslaw.
Because of this and other behaviors that were perceived as destructive and generally negative, a Twitch streamer named Jason v5959 started a petition to ban Kaceytron from the Twitch platform. Jason v5959 then listed the myriad ways in which Kacey Caviness had violated the Twitch Terms of Service. It was a long list that included violations of the law, hateful harassment and conduct, inappropriate content categorization, nudity, pornography, and other sexual content. This petition was boosted by the fact that Twitch had announced earlier this month that it would include new guidelines for sexual content. Jason v5959 is not the only person to have launched such a petition.
What happened to her?
Kaceytron is still trying hard to do what she does best: turn every situation in her favor. In 2016, during the presidential election campaign, she created a series called Kaceytron University, an obvious parody of Trump University.
Following the announcement of Twitch’s upcoming policy review, Kacey went on Twitter to encourage women who wanted to pursue a career in streaming games but were afraid of Twitch’s announcement. The announcement even inspired her to create a conservative alter ego that always dresses in sweaters and never uses swear words.
What Kaceytron does on Twitch has the longest eluded description, as her streams have always been on the borderline between satire and troll. However, one thing is now clear to anyone who knows her: Kaceytron is more of an entertainer and player. She even alluded to it indirectly by talking about how she felt her channel was built for escapists – to entertain people who wanted to leave their real-world problems behind for a while.
Kaceytron started out with the intention of completely shutting off her private life from the Internet world. In recent years, however, she has become more open about her real-life struggles, particularly her mother’s struggle with drugs and their effects on her. This newfound reality has gradually blurred the line between Kacey Caviness, the girl from Kansas City, and Kaceytron, the wild and strange e-prominence.
