Popular Twitch streamer Mizkif has responded to leaked messages from a former editor of his YouTube channel who claimed the streamer had been mistreating and underpaying him.
Mizkif addressed these allegations by explaining that PotatoRecipes initially approached him asking for a position editing videos for his YouTube channel and offered to do it for free. Mizkif said he felt this was wrong and agreed to compensate him for five percent of the channel’s revenue.
Mizkif said once the editor was in the position, Potato required constant guidance since he wasn’t familiar with what he had to do. The streamer said he and his other editor were trying to help Potato since they had taken him on as an intern for the channel.
After working for the channel for 62 days, Mizkif claims Potato got mad at him for not giving him a raise. Potato said during a recent livestream that while he had been editing for Mizkif, he was told he couldn’t work for other streamers or stream himself. Potato also claimed Mizkif’s other editor was being paid 40 percent. Potato then said that once he confronted Mizkif about a pay rise, he was fired from the position.
Mizkif confirmed his editor’s pay, sharing that the reason his other editor is compensated so heavily is due to him running the channel. “Yes, my editor was getting 40 percent because he’s the owner of the channel and he was supposed to literally do everything,” Mizkif said.
The streamer continued by saying that Potato had been getting into arguments with other editors at the channel. After being confronted for more money, he said he decided to let Potato go.
“It just wasn’t working out,” Mizkif said.
