MrDestructoid Twitch Emote Meaning
Twitch users are using the MrDestructoid emote when they walk into a channel with a lot of fake viewers and believe that those viewers are, actually, bots.
It is also used when it is thought that the streamer is using bots or breaking Twitch's terms of service by committing an illegal act.
The emote is used both to joke and to insult the streamer. It is represented as a green robot with an unknown origin.
More and more often it happens that streamers resort to so-called bots to manipulate the number of viewers and ultimately the position on the Twitch preview page. This is an attempt to make the stream or channel better known and to accelerate the building of a community. This procedure is of course not appreciated by the streaming platform and leads relatively quickly to a ban or account suspension.

In 2019, YouTube user Ongakuu decided to upload a song starring MrDestructoid while clapping. The song used is: "Macky Gee - Lighters Up". He made it clear, though, that he doesn't own the emote, or the music, and has simply done the animation.
Bots issues are a hot topic in Twitch and it's not always the streamers who hire bots to fill their channels. One of the trends this year, for some toxic users, is to send bots to channels so that people will report them and Twitch will close the channels to the poor content creators.
