Hololive Fires 1.6 Million Subscribed Anime VTuber Plans To DELETE Their Channel Completely
Written by Theo J Ellis

Uruha Rushia, an anime Vtuber with almost 1.6 million people subscribed to her YouTube channel will no longer have that privilege.

Because of an ongoing controversy that lead Hololive to this decision, they’ve fired the Vtuber from their talent agency.

It gets even worse than that: they will DELETE her YouTube channel, and remove ALL the videos as well.

Basically it’ll be wiped clean as if it never existed by March 2022.

 

How did the controversy start?

Uruha Rushia was fired February 23rd 2022, and the reason is because of LEAKED information from the company – Hololive.

Cover Group, the parent company of Hololive let the Vtuber go for the following reasons:

“t has been apparent for some time that she has been distributing false information to third parties and has been leaking information, including communications regarding business matters.

We were able to confirm that she engaged in acts that: violated her contract by leaking information that she acquired from the company… and caused the company to suffer reputational damage, such as by publicizing falsehoods to various related parties”

They continue:

“As a result, we, as a company, have determined that it has become difficult to continue managing and supporting her and have elected to make this decision.”

They left a tweet on Twitter about their announcement, which was of course translated to death by many fans and followers.

Uruha Rushia herself hasn’t made a statement about her being fired or the fact her YouTube channel will soon be wiped off the face of the internet.

 

The last heard of Rushia was an apology about relationship rumors

This video is a translation of what went down with those rumors, Rushia’s apology, and what actually was said.

All translated in English for overseas fans.

 

Fans aren’t happy with the decision

A lot of people don’t believe this was the GENUINE reason for firing this Vtuber, and they believe it’s related to the relationship rumors Rushia apologized for about a week ago.

In other words people believe this is a cover up to justify the real decision, which is why Hololive’s statement is vague and doesn’t give up too many details.

And that is to NOT rely or be too dependent to the point where a company can literally END your career by deleting your entire channel.

Especially over something so small in the grand scheme of things.

Uruha Rushia can make a comeback and go independent of course, but with all that leverage wiped off her original channel it won’t be the same. But then again the backlash could work in their favor.

Plus the VTuber has 1.1M followers on Twitter.
