What happened to Twitch streamer Wilbur Soot?

The controversy surrounding Wilbur began on February 24 when fellow Twitch streamer Shubble, whose real name is Shelby, claimed to have been abused by an ex-boyfriend while they were dating. She didn’t name the ex-boyfriend but said that this man bit her and left bruises. He would even make fun of the bruises he left behind by pointing at them after the fact.

Shelby clarified, “He would even joke that it looked like he abused me.” “And finally, he acknowledged how ugly it appeared that I was always covered in bruises, so he stopped biting my arms as frequently and switched to biting my legs.”

Shelby claimed that during the beginning of their relationship, she was unaware that she was being abused and that it was not until later in life that she realized this.

While Wilbur was not specifically mentioned in Shelby’s stream, many people were aware that the two had dated and that Wilbur has a reputation for being a “biter,” which other streamers have attested to.

After Shelby’s stream, a lot of people realized that Wilbur was the person she was talking about, and criticism of the streamer started to grow.

She describes her experience in a clip from the stream, saying, “His biting escalated to the point where I was covered in bruises all over my arms.” And he would poke them for amusement, even though they hurt. And because he would unintentionally bite me so hard, he even felt so at ease flaunting my bruises to our friends.
